Instinct is our High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) style and is the foundation for each of our boot camp courses. We incorporate different intervals from 20 seconds in duration up to 5 minutes to make sure you burn calories effectively and to the highest capacity during and after your boot camp class. We target different energy zones in order to burn blood sugars quickly in the beginning, using shorter intervals and then target fat towards the end of each session by utilizing longer intervals at a lower heart rate. The science behind HIIT shows that it increases heart health, improves cardiovascular fitness, significantly lowers insulin resistance and builds muscle. Please note: Our Tuesday and Thursday classes are held indoors at a local gym (The Jungle, 3615 Manchester Road SE). There is an extra $50.00/month flat rate charge for using the facility.
