You are family here so come in and join this bad ass group of individuals!

High Intensity Resistance Training (HIRT) is essentially resistance training for fat loss, and like HIIT, it really is a big deal. HIRT training is the most effective way to increase your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), increase your Exercise Post Oxygen Consumption (EPOC), and burn calories at the same time.

When using HIRT you will execute several exercises together (sometimes called a super-set or giant-set), for a certain number of reps per set, for a certain number of minutes, without rest.

Along with HIIT, HIRT is a useful tool when avoiding endurance cardio while trying to lose fat, and it actually increases muscle mass more effectively than HIIT.

               HIRT training will give you the following benefits:

  • Increase metabolism for up to 36 hours post-workout
  • Outperform aerobic exercise in fat loss studies
  • Maintain muscle mass on a low calorie diet
  • Build muscle mass on a moderate to high calorie diet
  • Minimize fat gain on a high calorie diet
  • Burn more calories than endurance cardio
  • Increase muscle density
  • Improve anaerobic endurance
  • Improve aerobic endurance

 How We Do It

 Don’t worry about how much fitness knowledge you have or don’t have. Our program is designed so thinking is kept to a minimum and DOING is the only thing you need to worry about.

A typical session goes like this:

1.      Show Up (MOST IMPORTANT)

2.      Instructor puts you through a warm up to get your joints  and muscles ready

3.      Instructor explains and demonstrates the HIRT of the day

4.      You begin your workout

5.      Instructor stays engaged with all the clients ensuring proper form and safety as well as motivation as needed.

6.      Workout concludes within 30 to 45 minutes leaving you feeling euphoric and most likely in a puddle of sweat

7.      Most stretching and/or foam rolling is done on your own after exercise

8.      You leave knowing you just experienced the true value of your physical energy and what it really means to exercise.


Strength Is Key

STRENGTH is king with our unmatched H.I.R.T. System!!

Strength training with high intensity burns calories in more ways than one.

1.      First you burn the calories while doing the actual exercise. (H.I.R.T. workouts are anywhere from 300 to 1000 calories in a group session.)

2.    Second you trigger a growth hormone response that elevates your metabolic rate from 6 to 24 hours!! (So add roughly another 300 to 600 burned calories to your total from above.)

3.    Thirdly with proper nutrition you are building muscle that burns an additional 50 calories per day per lb! (We promote strength increases because it allows you to build muscle more efficiently, keep you going STRONG into old age, and increase your vitality, confidence, and well being.)
