As we prepare to say goodbye to 2019 and hello to a new decade, one fitness trend that has really taken off this year is HIIT. That’s high-intensity interval training between me and you, perfect for participants who are short on time but full of willing. HIIT training shows no signs of slowing down at any point soon so with that in mind, we’re here to tell you what classes you should be trying out in the New Year.
Another Space’s HIIT program combines boxing with interval training and is the workout that will leave you on your knees. Prior to the session prepare yourself for a workout that will have you continuously switching between the punch bag and the floor. The sessions last 45 minutes which is enough time to get the endorphins flowing. If you’re after impactful results, and a true sense of accomplishment this is the class for you.
With 35 studios in and nearby London, you won’t be hard-pressed to find one near you. The franchise originally born in Australia has become a worldwide phenomenon and has become the world’s fastest-growing functional training network in a matter of years. F45 has combined elements of HIIT, circuit training and functional training to develop 31 different, 45-minute workout experiences. Several people from The PHA Group have tried F45 and trust us, it’s an intense workout!
Less than a 10-minute walk from Covent Garden will see you arrive at the doors of Sweat IT. Their training has been designed to primarily shock your foundations through a combination of strength, speed and endurance sessions. Sweat IT’s methodology means they focus on one muscle group per day, meaning you’d better watch out for those stairs after Tuesday (leg day).
The bootcamp class that has five studios located across the capital combines weight training with cardio, alongside bursts of intense anaerobic exercise. The science behind these sessions means due to the intensity you’ll spike your metabolism and will continue to burn calories even after you’ve finished the class. Barry’s boasts that you could burn up to 1000 calories or even more during a class, suggesting it’s the perfect remedy after a treat weekend.
Leave the chaos of the outer world and enter ‘The Machine Room’. Rowbots is London’s latest HIIT class, welcome to 45 minutes of pain. Classes are engineered to crush your mental and physical barriers, you’ll be pushed to your limit but it might leave you surprised by your resilience and the inner strength you possess.
Combining powerful floor exercises with intervals on the rowing machine, which the Rowbots team suggest is by far the hardest but most effective machine in the gym. Time to put that theory to the test.
Its Co-Founder is also international footballer and four-times Champions League winner, Gareth Bale.
With six locations scattered across London, 1Rebel has become one of the capitals most trusted classes currently on the market.
Choose from four different concepts including Reshape which is the ultimate full-body workout, expect quickfire rounds of high-powered treadmill sessions, dynamic weight exercises and most importantly a whole lot of endorphins.
Or alternatively, take on the hard-hitting Rumble concept. Expect explosive movements and quick footwork during this 45-minute workout. You’ll learn the foundations to boxing from your stance and form to killer combos.
Described as “One of the best gyms in the world” by Men’s Health and Women’s Health. The Foundry is a results-driven fitness community offering classes and semi-private personal training. You’ll be trained and treated as a professional athlete by the world-class coaches. And if you ever need inspiration, The Foundry is home to over a hundred Olympians and international sportsmen and sportswomen, so you’ll be training in good company.
So what’s the goal for this focused fitness community? To become the most inclusive, community-minded fitness company and charity in the UK.
Voted best studio at this year’s Men’s Health Gym Awards. With 6 different flow classes designed by the best in the yoga business available, FLY LDN have gone back to the drawing board and revalued what yoga actually is and what it isn’t, meaning cutting out the jargon.
So why not try out the Base flow beginners class and work your way up towards the candlelit hip hop yoga class.
Currently, you can purchase all classes for two weeks for just £50, that’s 12 classes at an average price of £4 per class. Good luck finding a better deal than that in London!
