Tabata (HIT) High Intensity Training

How bad do you want to see results?

Check Schedule for classes

New Class SHE BEASTS will be a combination of HIT and exercises to test your strength ability 

Tabata training will raise your metabolism and heart rate up in no time. Because you are performing these exercises at a very high intensity, your body will have to work much harder to keep up. This will cause your heart to pump faster and your metabolism to rise; which you want if you are planning on losing fat. Your metabolism will stay at a high not only during the workout, but after the workout as well. This means that your body will be burning fat even when you aren’t doing anything.

Benefits of Tabata Training

* Tabata will also fire up the metabolism during the workout and have an after effect after the workout (meaning even after you are done your Tabata workout, you’ll still be burning calories). Having high metabolism will help you burn fat and Tabata is a really good fat burning type of exercise.

* improves mental toughness (or will power) because of the high intensity of it.

* you will be improving your aerobic system much more than traditional cardio training.

* you will be gaining physical benefits as well as mental benefits.

* the most effective when it comes to burning fat and improving cardio.

The Discovery of Tabata Training

The Tabata workout routine was discovered by Dr. Izumi Tabata, along with a team of researchers from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo.  The team studied a speed skating coach’s workout that consisted of six to seven 20 second full speed sprints that were followed by 10 second rest periods.

During the study, men who performed the routine five days a week for six weeks improved their maximum aerobic capacity by 14%.  Aerobic capacity is the measurement of the body’s ability to take in oxygen.   The more oxygen a person can take in, the longer and harder a person can run.   Not only did it improve their aerobic capacity, but it also improved their anaerobic capacity by 28%.  Anaerobic capacity is the measurement of your speed endurance.

Don’t let the Short Tabata Intervals fool you!!

While the short Tabata intervals may be the reason you have chosen this type interval training, do not be fooled into thinking this is an easy exercise routine.  This could not be farther from the truth.  It is important to understand that during the high intensity portions of the Tabata training, you will be working the hardest you have ever worked.  The goal is to “honestly” do as many reps of a specific movement as you can during the high intensity portion of the routine.    Know that the more Tabata intervals you do, the harder they are to complete.

When you are doing the workout, do not give up!  If you are through 3, 4, or 5 intervals just remind yourself there are only a few intervals left and push yourself hard!  You will not regret the results

Tabata Workout Routine for the Beginner

The best way to start off with Tabata training is to start slow.  You do not have to do all eight Tabata intervals on your first try.  In fact, it is not recommended because your heart rate would go too high if it has not been conditioned for endurance
