I found HIIT through the 6 week challenge ad. I had gradually picking up weight after going back to working fulltime in August 2015, and although I was already training 4-5 times per week at another gym, I knew that the 6-week challenge was just the right push I needed to really get back on track again. I did the challenge for the first time in Feb 2019, and got amazing results. The coaches and the workouts combined with the eating plan was the positive change I was looking for. I was however not able to join the gym fulltime at this point. Jump to 2020, and after about 4,5 months of lockdown, I had gained a lot of weight.

Being within metres of a kitchen where I can bake bread and cakes and candy every day is maybe not ideal for somebody who has a passion for baking and cooking 😊. So I decided that I needed a new 6-week challenge to really get back on track again. I know myself, and I work really hard when I want to achieve something. With circumstances being very different with lockdown, having kids at home etc…my results were maybe not as amazing as I had hoped, but I made a major change in body and mind, and I knew this time I couldn’t let go and decided to join HIIT Fitness fulltime.

The workouts are so versatile, fun and really give you that full body workout and increase stamina. Best decision ever!

Since Aug 2020 I have lost 10 cm in my waist, about 7 kgs of scale weight and decreased a few clothing sizes, gotten smoother and happier skin and have MUCH less headaches. I have increased the weights I use at the gym and my stamina has improved drastically. I have more energy in general, I sleep better and I have more faith in myself. That might sound silly, but when you know you’ve pushed yourself past your own limit in the daily workout, you feel like there isn’t anything you can’t do and your body and mind just feel amazing.

One of the greatest things about HIIT are the coaches. They get to know you and they know how to help push you just past your own limit. Everybody gives it their all in the workouts and pushes themselves past their own limit.

I like that all levels can work out together and draw inspiration and motivation from each other. There is accountability thanks to weigh-ins and assessments which personally is the most rewarding aspect for me. I am a person who likes stats and numbers, so seeing my progress in terms of muscle gain and fat-percentage-loss…you just cannot hide behind anything.

I would highly recommend HIIT Fitness to anyone and everyone.

Why? 1) There is accountability. 2) You get amazing workouts in a room filled with other motivated individuals which pushes you to bring you A-game every day! (but no one shames you if you are a bit off your game at any point) 3) The coaches make it fun and are experts at catering for ALL levels at the same time. 4) You are not alone! 5) You get assistance with your diet through recipes etc. 6) Everybody at HIIT is GENUINELY interested in your health, your wellbeing and your success! 7) It isn’t just a gym. It is a community and you really become a bit like family.
