NEW FITNESS CLASS THIS SUMMER!

TABATA & H.I.I.T BOOT CAMP
June 19-July 31
6-6:45 a.m., Thursday mornings
Ages 10 and older
$10 for FFY members; $40 for non-members

Seeing stars. Sucking wind. This is how you know you're doing a Tabata workout correctly. At first glance you may wonder why anyone would intentionally do this to themselves, but there's a reason this type of high-intensity interval training is becoming the go-to workout not just for athletes. But it's worth it.

Doing as little as 4 minutes (or one "Tabata") can increase your aerobic capacity, anaerobic capacity, VO2 max, resting metabolic rate, and can help you burn more fat (and make you look 200-percent leaner) than a traditional 60-minute aerobic workout. That's right—4 minutes of Tabata can get you better fitness gains than an entire hour of running on the treadmill.

This BOOT CAMP is 45 minutes in length, but it isn’t going to be the high intensity the whole time. There is an 8 -10 minute warm up and 10 minute cool down. You are only working really hard for 25 minutes! Yes that is it 25 minutes!

This high-intensity training is fun, blasts calories, and moves so quickly that it's hard to get bored. For Tabata, you perform an exercise at maximal intensity for 20 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of rest. You repeat this on-off pattern a total of eight times, making one complete Tabata round four minutes.

BODY PUMP CLASS – just for TEENS (13-18 years old)
Fridays, May 30-August 1, 12 noon-1 p.m.
FREE for FREMONT FAMILY YMCA members;
$10 day pass (each time you take a class) for non-members

Stay in shape over the summer and if you plan on participating in fall sports, this class will give you a head start.
