Tabata is a form of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) that's been proven to torch serious calories quickly. In a Tabata workout, each round lasts four minutes. It requires 20 seconds of all out intensity, followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated eight times. We will apply the fundamentals of CrossFit, defined as constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. Functional exercises are ones that mimic real-life movements, and usually require little to no equipment, like burpees, push-ups, and sit-ups, combined with running and other cardio activities. These classes will be scalable for everyone, from the advanced athlete to the beginner. Everyone will get a good sweat on. So come out and we will have some fun, get our sweat on, and meet some new friends by the river! ____________ Tickets for Fitness on the Flint can be purchased by calling the Albany Civic Center at 229.302.1405 or by emailing david.sanford@spectraxp.com Monday through Friday 10AM to 5PM.
