HIIT and Functional Trainer Course

HIIT and Functional Trainer Course

Course Description

High-intensity functional training (HIFT) methods have increased in popularity over the last decade or so. A recently conducted survey found that high-intensity training methods are one of the leading trends in the fitness industry.

High-intensity functional training (HIFT) programmes are designed to incorporate multiple facets of training modalities, comprising principles of  HIIT (high-intensity interval training) and functional training where fairly short periods of high-intensity exercise are utilised as an alternative to traditional aerobics training in order to encourage metabolic conditioning.

HIFT utilises a training approach and principles from HIIT in order to structure intervals and utilise traditional HIIT workouts – for example, interval sprints and rows – as a part of the programming. HIFT incorporates resistance training movements and Olympic movements that are performed at a quick pace under varying loads. HIFT emphasises multi-jointed compound and constantly varied movements which can be modified to any fitness level.

What is High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)?

High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a kind of interval training exercise. It integrates several rounds that alternate between several minutes of high-intensity movements in order to significantly boost the heart rate to at least 80% of one’s maximum heart rate. This is followed by short periods of lower-intensity movements.
