High Intensity Interval Training isn’t exactly a “new” concept anymore. We’ve talked about interval training before here on the Elite blog (see: “Tabata High Intensity Interval Training: The fastest way to fitness & fat loss!”) and we offer plenty of classes and training programs that incorporate it as well.
