High fitness is said to be a modern version of aerobics, which combines HIIT training and plyometric movements. This new fitness technique was founded by friends and fitness instructors Amber Zenith and Emily Nelson. To Amber, “HIGH was born to fill a much-needed gap in the group fitness space – most workouts we experienced were either super intense and easy to follow OR super fun and very choreographed.”
Among the benefits of high fitness, we find:
- Burn calories while having fun
- Shaping and toning the whole body
- Promoting the feeling of confidence and strength
- Improving general fitness
- Make new friends and be social!
