At Grit Box, we believe that fitness should be challenging, effective, and most importantly, fun! Which is why we offer High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) classes that incorporate kickboxing and strength. It’s a full-body workout that will leave you feeling energized and empowered. Plus, it can be customized to fit different fitness levels! “HIIT is definitely scalable. You can always add weight to make it more challenging or stick to body weight exercises to keep it less challenging,” says Coach Dani. “You also have the option of modifying jumping/hopping exercises to make it easier on your joints.”
No pain, no gain
HIIT isn’t for the faint of heart. This type of training involves short bursts of intense activity followed by rest periods or low-intensity activity. But trust us, the physical benefits are worth the sweat and tears. HIIT burns more calories than traditional cardio, increases endurance and stamina, and promotes fat loss. And adding kickboxing to our HIIT classes is a match made in fitness heaven!
Perfect for busy schedules
Time commitment is where HIIT really shines! You can get a killer full-body workout in just 45-minutes, making Grit Box perfect for anyone who’s short on time. Plus, with the versatility of HIIT, you’ll never get bored! Our workouts are designed to keep you on your toes, both mentally and physically. And let’s not forget about the afterburn effect!
“HIIT is a fantastic way to burn a very large amount of calories during and after the session is over. Muscle gain is dependent on how you perform the exercises. The heavier you go with the weights, the more muscle gain you will see,” says Coach Storm. Your body keeps burning calories even after you’ve left the sweat box, so you can keep crushing those fitness goals even while you’re binge-watching Netflix at home.
Mind over muscle
The benefits of HIIT go beyond just physical fitness, though. “The mental benefits can range from helping with anxiety, depression, stress relief and personally, I think the biggest is self confidence,” Storm says. It’s a total mind-body workout that will leave you feeling empowered and ready to take on the world. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, we’ll push you to your limits and help you crush your fitness goals with classes that leave you feeling like a badass.
