Sometimes 10 minutes is all you need.
When busy schedules and busy gym floors are sabotaging your best intentions to exercise, it’s useful to have a few short workout options in your back pocket that you can mix and match to suit your needs.
This concept of ‘workout stacking’ – where you stack a selection of workouts together to create your perfect sweat session – has become increasingly popular among our Fiit community.
“That’s why we’ve decided to expand our library of 10 min classes so you can tailor your training to match your goals,” explains Director of Fitness, Gede Foster. “It helps make your workouts feel a lot more attainable if you’re short on time.”
WHAT IS WORKOUT STACKING?
Workout stacking comes in many shapes and sizes.
Can’t face an hour-long vinyasa but want to unwind after a busy day? You can stack a 10 min yoga flow with a 10 min HIIT workout to tick both your Rebalance and Cardio boxes.
Looking for a core finisher to round off your upper or lower body strength session? Stack a 25 or 45 min Metcon workout with a 10 min Abs Burn or Pilates class.
You could even sandwich 10 min classes around your working day with a 10 min Energy Shot before your morning meeting, a 10 min Chaser at lunch and 10 min Arm Gains before dinner.
BENEFITS OF STACKING YOUR WORKOUTS
The benefits of short workouts are well-documented, from increasing metabolism after a fast and furious four-minute tabata workout, to reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes thanks to simply being less sedentary.
Breaking workouts down into bite-size chunks is another proven way to overcome excuses, sidestep waning motivation and help exercise become a habit that sticks.
And now that we’re seeing more people using Fiit classes in the gym as well as at home, having a broad range of convenient and versatile workout options at your fingertips should help keep your training on track long-term.
