If you are strapped for time to exercise but want big results, here is a class for you. Hard Core exercise, available at Fitness First, packs all the fitness benefits of aerobic exercise and resistance training into 30 minutes of intensity, challenging your body to another level of fitness.
The class is certainly not for the faint-hearted. Even a fit regular gym-goer (even the instructors themselves, actually) will be worked up by this intense, fast-paced exercise, breaking serious sweat after only about five minutes into the class.
Hard Core exercise combines the Tabata method and circuit training. The Tabata method is an intensive cardiovascular workout designed to improve endurance and stimulate fat loss, achieving the same caloric burning as an hour of other cardio exercises in a shorter time due to its high intensity. The basic outline of the Tabata method is to break the routine into intervals _ a few minutes intense training with 30 seconds of rest.
