At Wilcox Wellness & Fitness we follow a functional training style – preparing the body for everyday life. In our training sessions, we use different methods to help our clients achieve the best results possible. One of these methods is TABATA or interval training. TABATA was invented by Dr. Izumi Tabata and a team of researchers from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo.
The Tabata portion of a workout lasts only four minutes, but it's likely to be one of the more challenging four minutes you have ever faced. The structure of the program is working hard for 20 seconds, resting for 10 seconds and completing eight rounds.
One of our themes in our training sessions for the past few weeks is knowing when to rest, and when to push in order to get the most out of your workouts. The Tabata method is a tool we use to help our clients learn their bodies to really help them push hard for 20 seconds and take that 10 second rest.
The Tabata workout is super effective and a lot of fun! We are looking forward to sharing this training tool with you.
Happy Training from all of us at Wilcox Wellness & Fitness.
