So, group training isn't your thing? That's okay! Some people just don't want to share their space and prefer a more intimate environment. Enter moi! I offer one-on-one training focusing on you and only you! As with group training, personal training also has its benefits. Let's face it, watching all the You Tube videos in the world and reading all the latest fitness magazines, does not substitute having a person by your side providing you immediate feedback on form and technique...and hold you accountable! It is very easy to injure yourself, slowing your role. I will develop a program that is specific to you and your goals and use my education, knowledge, and experience to provide you with tips and tricks to help you develop a healthier lifestyle.
HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, 100% effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time (abdominal fat in particular!). A high-intensity workout increases the body’s need for oxygen during the effort and creates an oxygen shortage, causing your body to ask for more oxygen during recovery. This afterburn effect is referred to as Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) and is the reason why intense exercise will help burn more fat and calories than regular aerobic and steady-state workouts.
