Our featured class this week is Full Body HIIT Wednesdays at 4:30 with Caitlin. Have you tried this fabulous class yet? Intimidated by its name? Here's what participants have to say:"So glad I finally did the HIIT class. It was a great a workout and went fast. It is a little intimidating to think about trying if you have not attended. With that said, what I do appreciate about Empowered is that all levels are made to feel welcome and comfortable. So just getting started, I don't get discouraged when I cannot do things to the max level. Caitlin did such a nice job giving alternative exercises for varying levels.""I really enjoyed it, the time flew! I have really seen improvement in my strength and core from attending the Saturday morning strength and Full Body HITT. I feel they are sort of similar classes. There are tons of modifications for anything we do. Don’t judge a class by its title or description, try it out a couple times first!""Full Body HIIT is a great mix of cardio and strength training. It allows you to obtain a full body workout in 60 minutes. The setup and exercises reminds me a lot of Boot Camp. I personally like the exercises that incorporate weights. I encourage everyone to try a Full Body HIIT class. There’s modifications for every exercise and you go at your own pace while obtaining a full body workout."
