HIIT & BOOT CAMP

HIIT vs Bootcamp – The Ultimate Weekend Fat Buster!


CURRENT COURSE: 

FUTURE COURSES:

  • There will be no HIIT/Bootcamp over the summer holidays. The next course is expected to start in October 2017, please email to register your interest. In the meantime, as of Wednesday 20th September the 7:35pm class will become HIIT, which will follow the same format as the Saturday morning class. Prices will be £5 per class or £25 for a continuous 6 week block. More updates coming soon.

Email info@fitnessquest.co.uk to book, places are reserved via payment in full.

Since 2016 I have made some changes to the format of HIIT vs Bootcamp:

What’s changed?: If you’ve been asking for a while about this class you will be aware I was changing the format anyway. You may sign up to HIIT alone, or both HIIT vs Bootcamp (a bootcamp only option is not available).

HIIT: 10:30-11:15am – SUITABLE FOR ALL LEVELS OF FITNESS. I will be running HIIT as I did before, offering three levels of exercise one each for beginners, intermediate and advanced. Although suitable for all levels of fitness, I do ask you inform me of any injuries or medical conditions prior to booking.

BOOTCAMP: 11:15am – 12pm – SUITABLE FOR GOOD/HIGH LEVELS OF FITNESS ONLY. I have decided that I needed to run a class with an extra challenge, for those of you who are willing! I used to run this class with plenty of modifications, however I feel this takes from the “Superhuman” status many of you wish to achieve. We’ll have a variety of weights, of which you can choose, but the exercises given will be the only ones on offer! Think workout of the day, each bootcamp session will be different and provide you with a fresh challenge. We’ll  have fun with sandbags, atlas balls, kettlebells, ropes and much more! Due to the smaller hall, I can only accept 10 bootcampers on this course. You will have to do HIIT before bootcamp as this will be your warm up. There are no BOOTCAMP ONLY options available. Any medical conditions or injuries must be disclosed prior to booking. 


To book, please email info@fitnessquest.co.uk. Places are available on a first come, first served basis only.

This six week course will be the ultimate class to kick start your weekend. Interval training maximises calorie burn for up to 24 hours after you’ve finished exercising – Perfect for the weekend!

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is one of the top rated classes for 2014, so I’ve decided why not run it alongside a popular favourite... Bootcamp! HIIT vs Bootcamp will be a 90 minute class, but due to this following an interval formula, there will be plenty of rest periods, unlike Kettlercise for example. HIIT is especially adaptable to suit all levels of fitness, as I always offer level one, two and three options, giving you control of your overall workout. Bootcamp will concentrate more on the muscle workout, combining body weight exercises with boxing, kettlebells and plenty of core work!

Six weeks of 90 minute classes will cost £40. Please book in advance.

Six weeks to HIIT that fat!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the abbreviation HIIT, it stands for High Intensity Interval Training, and is one of the next big crazes in fitness training, the reasons why I shall explain later on in this blog.

HIIT is being introduced as a six week course. Each class will be adapted to encourage you, regardless of your ability, to work at your own level so you can get the work out that’s right for you. Body composition scales will be available at the beginning of weeks one and six to track the improvement in your measurements this course has provided (these are optional but record measurements such as body fat, muscle mass and metabolic age, so are well worth a go).

What is HIIT Training?

There has been a lot of research in recent years into exercise and its fat burning effects. You may have seen some studies that have shown short bursts of anaerobic exercise to be a great way of burning off those fat calories. Well Hiit training uses this idea of short bursts of anaerobic exercise such as star jumps or power lunges alternated with lower impact aerobic exercise to act as a recovery period.

Who is is for?

Everyone! You will each be asked to push your fitness levels but adaptations will be made available. Suitable for both men and women of all ages. As of 2017, the bootcamp part of this class is suitable for good/high levels of fitness only, HIIT will remain suitable for all levels.

How does HIIT Training work?

Without going into too much detail, Hiit Training works because of the demand you put on your muscles to cope with the intense exercise and the oxygen required by them to function. This oxygen consumption continues long after exercise (Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption or EPOC for short), meaning that after your workout your body is still working hard and burning more calories than after most other workouts.

Benefits of HIIT:

  • Burn more calories in less time
  • Burn more calories in the 24 hours AFTER a HIIT workout
  • Lower risk of heart disease
  • Increased metabolic rate
  • Challenges your current fitness levels (so you feel fitter and less bored)
  • Helps to maintain muscle mass

Cost

Price is £40 for six weeks of 90 minute classes including body composition on weeks one and six. 

Location

Day and Time

Saturday mornings (see below). Please allow extra time for weeks one and six for body composition measurements. Exercise starts at 10:30am, weigh in from 10:15am on week one and six.
