Member's monthly gym tip

It's not too late to get your summer body with interval training!

Interval training involves bursts of high-intensity work, followed with periods of low-intensity work.

See below our interval training top tips to help you get the perfectly toned summer body!

Tips to introduce interval training into your exercise regime:

  • Warming up is essential, to prepare your body and reduce the risk of injury.
  • Set training goals that are within your ability.
  • Start slowly (for example, walk 2 minutes/ jog 2 minutes) in general, longer intervals provide better results.
  • Keep a steady, but challenging pace throughout the interval.
  • Build the number of repetitions over time.
  • To improve, increase intensity or duration, but not both at the same time.

Interval training suggestion:

  • Warm up for 5 minutes (a fast walk or light jog at low intensity, gradually increasing at the end of the warm-up period).
  • Perform 2 minutes of high intensity exercise - where you are pushing yourself e.g. a fast jog or sprint.
  • Perform 2 minutes of low intensity exercise - where you are resting e.g. a slow jog or fast walk.
  • Repeat stages 2 and 3 above (aim for 5 times each).
  • Cool down for 5-10 minutes (a fast walk or light jog at low intensity, gradually decreasing by the end of the cool down period).
