HIIT It The Best of ACE Certified News: High-intensity Interval Training

For nearly 30 years, ACE has remained dedicated to promoting the benefits of physical activity, disseminating sound and credible health and fitness information, and educating fitness professionals on how to deliver safe and effective training programs. This commitment is behind everything we do, from setting the highest standards in certification to providing quality education opportunities for fitness professionals. It’s also the reason why, each year, we allocate considerable resources toward producing original articles and continuing education focusing on all areas of health and fitness for fitness professionals in the United States and around the world.

When it comes to current high-profile trends, it’s hard to top high-intensity interval training (HIIT). Popularized by workouts like Tabata, CrossFit, P90X and Insanity, high-intensity interval training is now recognized as a highly effective and efficient method of improving strength and conditioning. However, as rates of participation have increased, so has the number of injuries, highlighting the need for fitness professionals to be well versed in how to deliver these workouts safely and effectively to their clients.

This special issue of ACE Certified News features a wide range of articles related to HIIT, including how to adapt the workout for special populations, a review of the research related to this method of training, and how to deliver a true Tabata workout. In other words, there is something for everyone here, from the hard-core HIIT devotee to the novice trainer interested in learning how to deliver HIIT workouts for his or her clients. These topics, and more, are featured in this very special issue worth 0.2 CECs, The Best of ACE Certified News: High-intensity Interval Training.

Look for an additional special issue in the coming months that brings together our most popular articles on yoga.
