Functional Fitness

Functional Fitness

This incredible Gastonia functional fitness class uses High Intensity Interval Training (or HIIT) to help you burn fat and tone muscle like never before. Discover a flurry of insanely fun and effective exercises that utilize the revolutionary Interval Training approach.

Interval Training works by giving you "intervals" of intense exercise followed by "intervals" of rest. The back and forth between resting and exercise gives your body an extra workout, helping you burn more calories in a single session than you likely ever have from any other workout.
