How do the workouts work?
HIIT Boost (25 minutes)
HIIT Boost is a full body workout with 3x 6 minute circuits. Each circuit has 6 exercises that you perform for the specified amount of time. Repeat three laps of each circuit with a 1 minute rest in between circuits. After completing the 3 circuits, you will move into the Ab finisher. Here you will complete 2 laps of 4 time-based exercises.
HIIT Pyramid (22 minutes)
HIIT Pyramid includes 2 pyramid style circuits. Each pyramid includes 5 exercises that either increase or decrease in time. Complete the exercises for a specified amount of time, repeating for three laps, taking a 30-second rest between laps. Each workout finishes with a wrap-up. The wrap up includes a combination of all exercises performed in the pyramids. You will perform each exercise for 20 seconds.
Express Boost (15 minutes)
Each workout includes 3 tri sets. Each tri set contains 3 time-based exercises, that you will repeat for 2-4 laps. Take a 1-minute rest in between tri sets. Each workout finishes with a wrap-up. The wrap up includes a combination of all exercises performed in the tri sets. You will perform each exercise for 20 seconds.
The warm-ups include mobility exercises, dynamic stretches and anaerobic exercises, to get your body ready to go! Before starting your workout, you are presented with 4 warm-up options:
- Cardio (your choice of cardio)
- Cardio & Movement (your choice of cardio, mobility and dynamic stretches)
- Movement only (mobility exercise and dynamic stretches)
- No Warm-up
It’s really important to warm up before your workout to prevent the risk of any potential injury.
At the end of each workout, a cooldown is provided. The cooldowns are just as important to help promote recovery, prevent injury, improve flexibility and promote even blood flow throughout your body!
