New evidence supporting HITT training

While many of us wonder just how much exercise we really need in order to gain health and fitness, a group of scientists in Canada are turning that issue on its head and asking, how little exercise do we actually need? The emerging and engaging answer appears to be, a lot less than most of us think — how does 10 minutes sound (no seriously!)?

    Most of the industry already know the increased benefits of using high intensity training and it is a fantastic tool for results driven PT’s. Its nice to see more academic evidence to back up the empirical evidence we see with ourselves and our clients. However I think we have to be careful with the hard sell of this ‘way or no way’ approach some PT’s adopt, lets remember our clients ability and enthusiasm (or lack of) for this intense approach when programming. I think the industry sometimes tries to be to sexy and elite which deprives us all from an increase in a potential income stream of moderate exercisers who are put off by the Industry image, despite the reality of us being a more user friendly bunch than ever before.
