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).

Don't forget, we are here to help. Ask any of the team at your health club for further hints and tips to ensure that you reach your health and fitness goals.
