We’ll do our best to provide answers.
If there’s something else you are wondering, feel free to contact us below!
When should I arrive?
For your first visit, be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes before class. That way you can learn the ropes, grab a spot and hydrate. You’re gonna need a bigger water bottle!
Current clients need to arrive 10 minutes before class to get through the necessary COVID protocols.
What should I bring?
Outdoor classes are little more high maintenance so you’ll need a mat, water and towel. If you have a set of mini-bands and/or a jump rope, bring those too in case we use them for class.
Attitude is everything (insert Grumpy Cat photo). So come with a positive one! We’ve never heard of anyone having much fun with a negative one. Just sayin’.
Where is the studio?
Is there parking?
Yes! There is ample parking that wraps around the whole building. There are also several spots along 35th Ave SW.
The spots adjacent to the building is where we get our sweat on, so those are a no-go on parking.
Do you have showers?
We do but unfortunately due to current COVID mandates and for your safety, they are not available for use (such a bummer!).
How do I sign up for a class?
Click on this link to send us your initial info and we will help set up your $15 Intro (2 classes!). Once you find a class date/time of your liking, let us know. We’ll save you a spot and get you all squared away!
Is there an app available to sign up for classes?
Of course there’s an app for that! You can use the Zen Planner app to easily sign up for classes via the mobile device of your choice. Just search for ‘HIIT Lab’ in the app and it’s super easy to sign up for a class. If you have any questions or want a quick tutorial, don’t hesitate to email or ask the instructor for help.
When do I sign up for a class?
What should I wear?
We suggest sporting comfortable athletic shoes, a tee or tank on top and shorts or form-fitting pants on the bottom. Depending on the weather, maybe a hat to shade the sun or keep your noggin a bit drier.
What is HIIT?
HIIT stands for high-intensity interval training. It’s a training technique in which you give all-out, 100% effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time. Who doesn’t want that?
Am I going to hurt myself?
With dumb bells, kettle bells, TRX and other equipment to experiment on, our expert instructors will guide and ensure you are using everything properly. If you haven’t exercised in a while, there is no shame in pacing yourself during your first class. We want you to have a great experience, rather than cursing us as you exit. Lastly, please let our instructors know about any injuries or limitations. They will give you a modification, no problem!
Do I have to be a runner?
Running doesn’t have to be your jam prior to taking our class. No prior experience necessary! There are many ways to create intensity and challenge to get your heart rate up.
Am I going to be the slowest/weakest/ lamest person in the class?
The only competition you’ll find here is with yourself. We’ll guide you through 50 minutes of cardio and strength training that is constantly changing and always challenging, regardless of your fitness level. We’re an all-inclusive kind of place without the buffet lines.
How often do I need to HIIT to get results?
Each and every body is different, but we’ve witnessed some pretty incredible transformations when people consistently take 3-4 classes a week for three months or longer. Key word: CONSISTENTLY. On the other hand, don’t be that guy who comes out quick out of gate working out everyday and then burns out just as fast. Those extra lbs didn’t pack on overnight, so it will take time to take them off (and keep them off). Be patient. Be consistent. You will get out of it, what you put in!
I’m pregnant, can I still come to class?
First off, congrats!!! And yes, you can come to class but please provide a note with approval from your medical caregiver. Also, please make sure to tell your instructor (we never, ever assume) so they can provide modifications for exercises as needed. Also, walking with incline is always an excellent option if running does not feel good for you and your babe.
I just had a baby, is HIIT (high-intensity interval training) right for me?
We strive to meet all fitness levels, including new mamas. But there are some important things you should know about your postpartum body to help you get the most out of your workouts, prevent injury and build your strength back in a supportive and functional way. Pregnancy takes a toll on your body (duh!) and for your ligaments particularly, it can take months to get them back to their pre-pregnancy state.
All this to say, make sure you’ve gotten the green light from your medical provider and please let our instructors know if you’ve had a baby in the last 9-12 months. You’ll still get all the benefits of HIIT training, but it’s wise to start back slow and take options that allow you to move in a way that is effective and safe for building your strength and endurance back (and maybe even better than ever!).
