 Leader: Traivon Williams

 Description: High Intensity Interval Training Class. This type of training involves repeated bouts of high intensity effort followed by varied recovery times. Using primarily body weight, the goal of this class is to get your heart rate up to about 80-95% of your max heart rate, followed by a short recovery time, bringing heart rate back down to about 40-50% of max. This HIIT style of exercise is seen to improve aerobic and anaerobic fitness levels, improve cardiovascular health, and decrease abdominal fat while maintaining muscle mass. HIIT class is ideal for all fitness levels, and can be modified for people with any condition.
