One of the benefits of HIIT workouts is that because they are so intense, you can get the same benefit out of a 20 minute workout that might normally take you 40 or 45.

Low Impact Tabata

Low Impact Tabata

Most of our guests sign up for one of our fitness retreats to experience new workouts, get motivated and inspired and challenge themselves in a way they haven’t before.
