A gym usually includes a cardio area which includes many types of cardiovascular training-related equipment such as rowing machines, stationary exercise bikes, elliptical trainers and treadmills. A resistance area with resistance machines and free weights are often commonly found in gyms. Gym's now usually include audio-visual displays in order to keep exercisers entertained during long cardio workout sessions.

Interval training is a type of physical training that involves bursts of high intensity work. This high intensity work is alternated with periods of rest or low activity, the eponymous intervals. 

The term can refer to any cardiovascular workout (e.g. cycling, running, rowing, etc.) that involves brief bouts at near-maximum exertion interspersed with periods of lower-intensity activity.  

Interval training is often practiced by long distance runners (800 meters and above). Sprinters and footballers have also been known to use this type of training. 

Interval training is a favorite of coaches because of its effectiveness in cardiovascular build-up and also its ability to make more well-rounded runners. However, it is also applicable to exercisers as it helps improve exercisers' aerobic capacity to exercise longer at varying intensities.  

It has been argued that this method of training may be more effective at inducing fat loss than simply training at a moderate intensity level for the same duration.

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) or sprint interval training is an exercise strategy that is intended to improve performance with short training sessions. HIIT is a form of cardiovascular exercise which is beneficial to burning fat in a short and intense workout.  

A HIIT session consists of a warm up period of exercise, followed by six to ten repetitions of high intensity exercise, separated by medium intensity exercise, and ending with a period of cool down exercise. The high intensity exercise should be done at near maximum intensity. The medium exercise should be about 50% intensity.

Spinning classes can be a great way to get in a vigorous workout, burning calories and keeping your muscles in shape - especially during the off-season.

Pros include:

  • An effective workout
  • It allows you to train in the offseason
  • Varied routines keep things fresh
  • It's great for all ability levels

A spinning class involves lots of people on exercise bikes lined up inside in a fitness studio. It is a relatively recent phenomenon, where participants take part in a group workout on exercise bikes that typically lasts anywhere from 30-75 minutes. The classes are lead by instructors who normally guide participants through a series of phases, from warm-up to more challenging phases, to a period of peak effort followed by a cool down.

Ultimately participants determine their own levels of exertion but a good instructor can certainly encourage and motivate you to push yourself, and you'll most likely find spinning to be a vigorous workout.

The Get Active Challenge is all about getting more active! To help you visualise this and set yourself a target, we have developed the Get Active Challenge tool which gives you the ultimate aim of travelling around the Cornish coast by converting any physical activity that you do into miles.

We will be running Corporate Challenges throughout the year which you can take part in as part of a team with your workmates but you can also set yourself Personal Challenges or Private Team Challenges at any other time (when the Corporate Challenge isn't running).
