TABATA is a popular class which is hard work but good fun!
What is it
TABATA is a specific version of Hight Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) involving 20 seconds of ultra-intense exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated continuously for 4 minutes (8 cycles). In this class we repeat this process 8 times, working all around the body parts.
TABATA can be taken at your own pace, you can extend the rests when you need to or work at a lower intensity as required. The beauty of this is that it targets all fitness levels and abilities - you will notice your improvements on a week by week basis.
Why is it important
Overall, this will improve your ability to work anaerobically (without oxygen) for short bursts, but it will also (due to the nature of the exrercises we choose) improve your strength and endurance also
