High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is one of the most popular forms of fitness today. These workouts are designed to exert a maximum amount of effort in a relatively short period of time. This can be as little as seconds to a couple minutes. While conducting my personal training sessions, I use 30 second exercise intervals as a baseline and sets of 8 - 16 based on muscle groups targeted. So, why is HIIT so popular?

I have spent my entire teaching career focusing on Pilates and mindful movement. I love the depth and breadth of this work. I feel energized when I see a client feel the work deeply for the first time and understand that to be truly present in their exercise sessions brings about great change. I recently had the opportunity to take a Spinning certification course. I was very nervous walking into this class for several reasons. For starters, this form of exercise was out of my comfort zone. I teach slow, controlled, precise movements; not spinning!

Have you noticed how much time at the gym is lost on unnecessary small talk? Whenever I pass by any of the “big” gyms in the area, I observe, with horror, how some gym members come mostly to exercise their maxillofacial muscles while chatting with the other gym-goers. To me, exercising your facial muscles is not the primary goal of visiting a gym. Even today at one of the big gyms I kept glancing at quite a substantial group of people, formed by the regular members of that gym, as they congregated in the narrowest passage area of the room.

Marketing, one of those things that can create confusion especially in our world of fitness. Here is what I think are some of the phrases we hear in fitness that may confuse consumers. We have all seen it from the words "toning" "lean" "weight loss" and the most infamous, "long lean muscles". Also "six pack abs" "bigger", "stronger", "shredded", and just get "jacked". I don't know if you noticed, but marketing words used as my examples definitely target specific genders.
