Description

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) has been riding a wave of popularity, and it seems everyone wants to give it a try. If your clients haven’t asked you about HIIT yet, chances are, they will.

Studies find high-intensity interval training protects against heart disease and shows promise for improving insulin sensitivity and controlling blood pressure. The challenge is that HIIT classes can be unnecessarily tough on the body if not taught or performed properly.

Learn how to teach safe HIIT classes that utilize all intensity variables and get your clients results.

High-Intensity Training Certificate Program Includes:

  • Four video courses and two article courses (a $370 value!) so you can earn up to 9 CECs/CEUs from ACE, ACSM, AFAA, NASM and more
  • Two bonus streaming videos with fat-burning circuits you can start using right away
  • Education taught by IDEA’s experts including Abbie Appel, Peter Twist, Eve Fleck, Cathe Friedrich and Brett Klika
