The basic idea of Tabata is 20 seconds of all out, 100% exertion, followed by a 10 second rest period. We use a lot of compound movements, a wide variety of cardio and body weight exercises, plus a period of stretching to keep you mobile. This class is great because it provides benefits to someone at any fitness level. Whether you’re just getting started with fitness, or you’re already in great shape, Tabata Fusion can give you as much of a challenge as you want. It’s a different way to work out, and sometimes a change is just what we need to get motivated to get back in the gym.
What can beginners expect?
Beginners can expect an upbeat, high energy, class that will motivate them to keep going. There will always be variations of exercises shown, and you can go at your own pace, so anyone can participate and take on as much of a challenge as their fitness level will allow.
What can more advanced participants expect?
The interval aspect of Tabata can help get you out of a rut in your workouts. It’s a different kind of workout, and it provides a new challenge for your body to overcome.
