Tabata training is one of the most popular forms of high-intensity interval training (HIIT). It consists of eight rounds of ultra-high-intensity exercises in a specific 20-seconds-on, 10-seconds-off interval. It may only take four minutes to complete a Tabata circuit, but those four minutes may well push your body to its absolute limit.
Because of the intensity, Tabata will keep working on the metabolism after the workout has finished. Without a doubt, your heart rate will rocket, and this, in turn, raises the metabolism. In order to work out at that level, the body has to work. If you then develop a routine whereby Tabata becomes part of your week, the BMR, which is your base or resting metabolic rate increases. This means even away from a class you are going to be burning more energy than you were before!
Sessions are 30 minutes long and held at Glen Falcon, Glen Falcon Road, Douglas. Please bring an exercise mat or towel with you.
