HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a fast-paced workout, where you alternate 1) going all out 100 percent and 2) recovering in short bursts. Ideal because it’s a super efficient way to train: torches a lot of calories in a short amount of time. Here’s why HIIT is a good bet for anyone seeking to optimize their fitness with efficiency.


Increase Your Metabolism
Not only are you amping up your metabolic rate during your workout, but studies show that you maintain a metabolic boost for up to 48 hours after a routine. This means you’ll still be burning fat even after you’ve left the gym.


Convenience and Efficiency
HIIT Workouts can be as short as seven minutes, but generally clock in at 30 to 45 minutes. You’ll find a variety of HIIT class formats at Pura Vida, from indoor cycling to Kinesis.


For Any Level of Fitness
You are always going for YOUR 100 percent during the high-intensity boosts, whether you are getting back into shape or are an elite athlete. Pura Vida’s classes allow you to go at a pace that is right for you, with modifications that suit your personal fitness level.
