Looking for the best high-intensity workout? Here are the top HIIT classes to join in Hong Kong.
HIIT — or high-intensity interval training — alternates short periods of intense or explosive exercise with brief recovery periods until the point of exhaustion. It’s, as the name suggests, very intense; you can expect a real power workout that’ll have you sweating! But it’s good for you, increasing calorie burn and reducing body fat (if that’s what you’re looking for) as well as helping to regulate and stabilise your heart rate, blood pressure and even your insulin sensitivity. You in? We’ve rounded up our favourite HIIT workout classes in Hong Kong.
