HIIT refers to High-Intensity Interval Training. This method of exercise combines short bursts of intense movement with lower-intensity recovery movements. For instance, a block of work might include 30-60 seconds on a rower or bike to increase your heart rate, followed by a set of body squats. Many believe it is the most efficient form of exercise (Healthline) https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/benefits-of-hiit#what-it-is
Absolutely Not! The reason to come to our gym is to increase your physical fitness! Some may be more comfortable starting with a Low-Impact class, but that is a preference, not a requirement. Our coaches are trained to address your specific needs in all classes. If any movement is too challenging, there is always a modification that will ensure you are moving toward increased physical fitness without over-exerting yourself.
Our Low-Impact classes are for everyone; low-impact does not mean low intensity. Low-Impact classes contain all the elements of a HIIT with the exception of high-impact activities such as jumping. These classes are, however, recommended for those who may be recovering from an injury, or just want to be gentle with their joints.
No problem, your first class is always free at Sweat Ethics. If you enjoy it, we offer a variety of membership terms; 1 month, 4 months, or 12 months. If you are still on the fence, consider our class pass, pay only for the classes you attend.
The answer is different for everyone and depends on your current fitness level as well as your goals. If you are new to fitness, or it has been a while, you should probably start with 2 days a week and build from there. If you are currently active, you can aim a bit higher; ultimately most experts recommend 3 to 5 days a week to maintain or improve current fitness. It is a good idea to listen to your body and not over-exert yourself to create a solid foundation for success. If you have a medical condition, always ask your doctor when considering a new exercise program.
As many as you like! Our memberships include full access to our scheduled classes and open gym hours. We do recommend reserving your classes, as class size is limited. This ensures each member receives the care and attention they deserve from the coaching staff.
