Healthy HIIT With Esther
What is Healthy HIIT?
Healthy HIIT is:
High Intensity Training (HIT) or High Intensity Interval training (HIIT) is an enhanced form of training for increased metabolic changes.
It's an exercise strategy which alternates periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less intense recovery periods.
Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 4 - 30 minutes.
These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition, improved glucose metabolism and improved fat burning.
Healthy HIIT was created Glenn Withers, who is the co-founder of the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute and creator of the APPI Rehabilitation Programme and Healthy HIIT Pilates. He is also a published author of the best-selling book, "Back to Life with APPI Pilates".
Withers created Healthy HIIT while he was training for the Ironman Triathlon and saw the need for a more tailored and defined exercise programme.
Healthy HIIT is designed to reduce injuries and strains often caused by regular HIIT classes and aims to build the intensity slowly, through warm up and recovery plus using pilates moves to mirror muscle work and movement patterns to ensure better technique and to reduce injury.

To sign up, please watch and complete this screening video first. During the first 15 minutes of the video Esther talks in depth about the course: what you can expect, what you will need, the types of exercises we will be doing and the kind of results you can expect. It's really informative and will give you a really good idea what the course will be like. Then, Esther shows you the 5 basic moves for you to follow along - it only takes 10 minutes.
Once you have completed the screening video, there are two ways in which you can participate in the course. You can do the LIVE 4-week course with me or you can order the pre-recorded 6-week course to do in your own time.
