If your goals are more about metabolic conditioning, burning fat, and increasing muscle tone without a lot of heavy lifting, then we have classes for you. “CFP Ground Works” classes will have no barbell work in them. We will focus on cardiovascular endurance training. Classes will consist of Warm-up, Mobility light strength work, and the work out of the day. The workouts will also follow High-Intensity Interval Training or (HIIT) periodization. Research has shown that HIIT training is more effective than most other workout programs. There are many benefits of HIIT workouts the CFP way.


Research shows that you can achieve more progress in a mere 15 minutes of Interval training (done three times a week) than the hour long jog on a treadmill.


Not only do you burn more calories during a HIIT workout, but the effect of the intense exertion kicks your body’s repair cycle into hyper drive. This means you burn more fat and calories in the 24 hours after a HIIT workout than you do after, say, a steady-pace run.


Most people aren’t used to pushing into the anaerobic zone (the place where you can’t breathe and you feel like you heart is trying to jump out of your chest). But in this case, extreme training produces extreme results. A 2006 study found that after 8 weeks of doing HIIT workouts, subjects could bicycle twice as long as they could before the study, while maintaining the same pace.


Anyone who has been on a diet know that it’s hard to not lose muscle mass along with fat. While steady state cardio seems to encourage muscle loss, studies show that using light weights during a HIIT workout allows dieters to preserve their hard-earned muscles while ensuring most of the weight lost comes from fat stores.


HIIT Training also stimulates production of your human growth hormone (HGH) by up to 450% during the 24 hours after you finish your workout. HGH is responsible for increase caloric burn, slows down the aging process, and makes you younger both inside and out.


Doing these types of workouts in a group setting with others will push you more and keep you accountable. Adding a coach for every class makes sure that you are doing things right and staying on track with your progress. Community is the key to achieving hard to reach goals. This is what makes Pleasanton Fit so effective at helping people achieve their impossible! So come in and experience the Pleasanton Fit difference!
