What’s not to love about High Intensity Interval Training? As its name suggests, the workout involves various intervals – usually of high intensity – ensuring you get a maximum benefit from your workout. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) helps to boost your metabolism while burning tons of calories, even after you leave the studio. HIIT helps you build endurance, and teaches the body how to efficiently use and challenge your energy system. The American College of Sports and Medicine said that “High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) helps you consume more oxygen than a non-interval workout routine. The excess amount of oxygen consumed helps increase your rate of metabolism from about 90 minutes to 144 minutes after a session of interval training”. Thus the increased metabolism helps burn more calories at a faster rate. At IslandFit, we design our HIIT programs with a combination of airdynne bikes, ski ergs, body weight exercises and a multitude of functional tools such as TRX, kettlebells, sandbags, slamballs and much more. Our 60 minute HIIT classes will push each participant to the next level with a challenging routine every day that will take you just outside of your comfort zone, maximizing RESULTS. It’s Fun, Fast, Furious and Functional.
Our challenging cycling classes, amazing instructors, state of the art Keiser M3i bikes and the ability to monitor your performance and effort using MYZONE heart rate monitors is an experience that you do not want to miss out on. Cycling is a non weight bearing exercise during most of the workout, putting far less pressure on your knees and feet while still yielding results. Cycling is aerobic and anaerobic in nature, pulling energy from reserves and building up muscular endurance over time. In addition to heart health and lung capacity, lower body definition and core strength are some of the great benefits of cycling classes. According to Harvard Health, in a one hour-long cycling class, participants can burn up to 650 calories at moderate intensity. One of the great benefits of group cycling is that it fosters community, from saddle to saddle it’s a family regardless of your age, gender or fitness level. It unifies a group of people that motivates and encourages each other, while working together as a team. Our cycling classes give you—the rider—the opportunity to challenge yourself, set your own bike resistance, dig deep and be the BEST that you can be. Always remember to push beyond that comfort zone and ENJOY, it’s your own ride.

Many people see a massage as a luxury, a “treat yourself” experience when they are looking to relax. But more importantly, massage can provide health benefits, especially for after a hard workout. The reparative and performance accelerating effects of massage are significant, and it’s crucial that active individuals put as much thought into their recovery as they do their workout. With hydro massage becoming a very sought after amenity, we are excited to offer this service as a convenient and unique way for post workout recovering and receiving an effective massage. When participating in vigorous activity, muscles within the body will experience miniscule tears that will then repair themselves, causing the muscles to grow. These tears are what cause us to feel sore after intense exercise. If not properly treated, the soreness that occurs will typically gradually get worse in the following days before it gets better. Massage can help relieve pain and speed up the repair by increasing blood flow to the muscle and releasing the lactic acid that builds during a workout.You can conveniently schedule your hydromassage session on our website and MINDBODY App, and with easy to navigate touch screen technology, you have total control of your massage and can customize it to your desired settings. Simply lie down in the open designed lounge chair, fully clothed and ENJOY!
