The Science Behind HIIT Program Design

Over the years, high intensity interval training (HIIT) has become a popular workout that can be done anywhere. This efficient style of exercise programming also has a wide variety of health benefits, from enhancing cardiovascular fitness and body composition to improving blood profiles and cognitive function. Not to mention, it may boost confidence and motivation!

Delve into the science behind HIIT so you can confidently program high intensity workouts for clients of all types. In this video training, you’ll also uncover the versatility of this in-demand training and explore how HIIT can be applied outside (running, cycling, rowing, cross country skiing), inside (treadmill, elliptical, stair climber, stationary bike) and in a group environment using body weight or equipment.

Led by Dr. Jinger Gottschall, an Associate Professor in Kinesiology and founder of FITOLOGY, a group fitness and cycling studio, you will be guided through programming the ultimate HIIT workout for your clients. Dr. Gottschall has been testing high intensity sessions for fitness companies for over 10 years by evaluating intensity, muscle activity, and impact to ensure that the workouts deliver on their promises while reducing injury risk.

Upon completion, you will be able to:

• Program the ultimate HIIT workout with appropriate exercises, intervals, sequences and rest

• Understand the science behind HIIT training to maximize the benefits

• Critically think about benefits versus risks, how to minimize injury and help clients of every level feel successful

Good information on purpose of HIIT and provided a variety of examples, along with the understanding of the clients who would best benefit from HIIT workouts. One of the best informational online courses so far.

Practical and comprehensive

They give no examples of what to put in a class. Or what a structured class WITH specific moves to use

I was looking for more information on how to train and that segment was only a small portion of the seminar. Maybe it should be longer so you can include more information.
