May 23, 2017

Tapout Fitness NYC 106 group exercise classes combine high intensity interval training (HIIT) and circuit training to propel you toward confidence and accomplishment, just in time for summer.

Summer is almost here. What will your summer look like? Imagine grilling burgers at the park for the whole family. Tossing the kids in the pool. A pick-up game of beach football with the guys. Bring it on!

But wait—are you ready?

Now is the time to focus on getting in shape so you can slide into summer with cool confidence. Guys—no shirt, no problem. And ladies—leave the bikini insecurities at home. We’ve got you covered. But it’s more than just weight loss or muscle gain that motivates our Tapout Fitness members in New York City, NY, to take your fitness game to the next level this time of year. It’s also about the way our classes make you feel.

You have the power to make this summer your best one yet. Our martial arts focused group fitness classes are the fastest way to a strong body and strong mind—which means you’ll look and feel great.

The temperature’s rising, NYC 106, and our experts are here to help you turn up the heat on your fitness regimen. Our top two suggestions for your summer sweat sessions? High-intensity interval training (HIIT) and circuit training.

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

HIIT is the latest fitness buzzword, but what does it mean?

Interval training involves a precisely measured alternation between brief bursts of intense exercise and short periods of active recovery. High heart rate, low heart rate, high heart rate, low heart rate—back and forth through your workout session.

HIIT has been proven to burn more body fat than pure cardio. Too much constant aerobic activity, as opposed to interval training, can decrease testosterone levels and even hinder strength gains.

HIIT is the ultimate strategy to reach your summer fitness goals.

Circuit Training

Circuit training is all about switching up your workout to keep your muscles guessing.

Just like you’ve learned to walk and breathe and don’t have to think much about doing it, your muscles learn routine exercise. 10 minutes into a 60-minute elliptical session, your body has already gotten used to the movements, meaning the energy expenditure goes down. Less pain, less gain.

There’s a better way.

A fitness class or workout session that includes brief intervals of different exercises—switching between cardio and strength as well as between muscle groups—commands your full attention physically and mentally. Your muscles won’t get bored, and neither will you!
