Fitness Tip: High-intensity interval training

Are you looking for a way to add variety to your exercise program and take your fitness to the next level? High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a cardiorespiratory training approach that alternates brief intervals of speed (high intensity) and recovery (low intensity) periods. For example, after you warm up, perform a speed activity such as fast jogging for 1 minute followed by 2 minutes of slow walking recovery, repeating 3 to 5 cycles of speed and recovery and of course, a nice cool-down. HIIT can be performed by everyday exercise enthusiasts as well as athletes to reach performance goals and enhance fitness and well-being.
