22 Sep P.H.I.T around Glasgow: 4. Cloisters at Glasgow Uni
Muscle Toning and Fat Burning in Glasgow
In the Summer of 2016 P.H.I.T went on a tour of the iconic places in Glasgow. The plan was to promote a healthy lifestyle by undertaking one or two High Intensity Interval Training (Hiit) exercises at each venue.
We keep things varied at P.H.I.T. Yes it is all based on High Intensity Interval Training but we like to mix it up. We use weights, theraband, kettle bells and of course bodyweight. There is not only one way to do Hiit. And one of the great things is that Hiit can be done anywhere. Ideally we want you to come along to our classes. But if you can’t, why not sign up to our Newsletter (below) for plenty of information on losing fat, muscle toning, burning calories and all things health and fitness.
P.H.I.T is run by two former Commonwealth Games athletes, competing for Scotland at Rugby 7s and Cycling. Every Monday and Wednesday they run fitness classes at Glasgow’s finest nightclub, The Sanctuary. DJ inspired Playlists, motivational lighting and expert tuition creates a fantastic atmosphere to work out.
It’s so good, it’s not fair for those in Glasgow to be the only ones to experience it. So sign up for our Newsletter so that you can stay a part of it.
And check out our social media for regular updates, including sessions you can try at home:
Benefits of Hiit
Hiit training is hugely beneficial for a number of reasons. Important ones are:
- it boosts your metabolism for hours after you stop. This means you will burn calories at a more efficient rate way after you stop exercising when compared to steady state work-outs.
- it is a far more efficient way of burning calories compared to steady state exercise.
- it’s good fun. There are countless ways of doing Hiit and short, sharp sessions can be really varied.
