If 2020 has taught us anything, it is the value of our health. After their first year in Oxshott, Surrey, The HIIT House are keen to put your health first
The importance of being fit and active hit the news everyday throughout spring and summer, so now the gyms and studios are open again I couldn’t wait to switch it up and try something new.
Holly Candlish put HIIT to the test: “In the heart of Oxshott Village I found the perfect solution, The HIIT House – a boutique fitness studio with four key concepts over two well equipped and modern studios. Upon arrival, I instantly felt reassured about exercising indoors in this new normal with Track and Trace and temperature checks as I checked in with a welcoming receptionist, safe behind a Perspex screen”.
The HIIT House classes have been created for small groups, so the studio and concepts are perfect for being physically distanced while giving you and your five fellow team mates great guidance, coaching and motivation.
The HIIT studio is divided into personal sections, each with their own sanitised cardio equipment, free weights, TRX and floor space, ensuring you have an individual workout area.
“As for my experience, I opted for their signature HIIT Switch class – perfect, I am told, for testing my cardiovascular fitness on the Concept2 Rower and then working key muscle groups with a range of body weight exercises, dumbbells (I am stronger than I thought) and TRX moves (trickier than it looks). The 45 minutes flew by – always the sign of a great class – and afterwards I’m in the sweet spot between, ‘that was tough’ and ‘wow I feel amazing!’
The HIIT House has two studios, one set up for BOX, a popular class which allows you to get your heart rate up and box away any stress. The main HIIT studio hosts a variety of HIIT inspired classes, including sessions focused on core, building strength or working on cardio fitness. After today, I can’t wait to take the pure TRX class – a full body workout using straps and your own body weight.
Unlike what I previously thought, the HIIT House isn’t all ‘go hard or go home’. You will find Yoga in their class list, allowing members to take some time to balance out the higher impact work and value their rest and recovery.
Members are given a safe and reassuring space, with warm, motivating and experienced trainers. The HIIT House is perfect for people of all fitness levels who want to develop their health for 2020, 2021 and beyond.
