Key2HitFit at Brio is a high intensity, short interval workout on the treadmill and the floor gym floor for strength. It is designed for you to get the most out of your workout and improve your overall fitness. The cardio and strength portions are broken into intervals of 10-30 mins. You don’t have to be a “runner” to get the most out of this class. Come in ready to sweat and prepare to leave feeling strong and empowered, achieving more than you thought possible!
How do you get faster? You have to run faster and doing it with others makes it so much easier and enjoyable. Intervals are the single best way to improve your running paces, your form and efficiency, and your overall strength. Myself or another motivating coach will lead you through each step of the workout and you’ll leave stronger and ready to take on the day! We begin with a warm up of 8-10 mins, a quick dynamic stretch right into 30ish mins of running intervals from :60-6:00, followed by a cool down, all at your own pace.
These classes are geared to the runner looking to improve performance and reduce injuries. Since most runners like running more than strength training, QuickFit is 35 mins of plyo and short interval strength moves to improve your overall strength. You still have time to add your run or xtrain before or after to get a great workout. Circuit is focused on Functional movements that will lead to increased overall strength and running specific improvements in a classic format of longer intervals or :30-2:00. No two classes are the same so you’ll never get bored!
