    Question gym classes


    i'm a member at ballys, and was wondering if taking group classes ( such as yoga, pilates or a total body class *focuses on cardio weight loss, resistance trains and flexibility*) could substitute for a full body workout session or a HIIT session?

    The total body class would work for a full-body WO session, but they are too long to be a HIIT session.

    and they don't realli reach the intensity of HIIT...body combat can be a good full body workout if you like...

    You can get to 80-90% of your MHR if your instructor is good.

    most ppl wont go that high...considering a class is an hr long...ppl might get flat after 15 mins or so...i know my HIIT..in whichever form cannot last more than 20mins on good days...but you might be right..
