We have HIIT classes at our Yoga Bar studio located in the trendy Yaletown neighborhood in downtown Vancouver.

HIIT

High Intensity Interval Training (or HITT) is a challenging workout that takes your capacity for fitness to a whole new level. Using bursts of intense exercise combined with intermittent recovery periods, one HIIT class delivers optimal results compared to long bouts of same-pace cardio. During this timeframe, trainees push their bodies to their limit, often hitting 80% – 95% of their maximum heart rate. Although committing to daily workouts of 1-2 hours is not attainable for many, HIIT workouts are quick and provide the same quality of results in a shorter period of time. Whether you’re looking to build muscle, lose weight, improve your mental health, or simply live a more active lifestyle without taking too much time out of your day, our HIIT workouts might be the solution for you. So, what are you waiting for? Time to HITT the gym and bring your fitness level to new heights.
