Summer is finally here! Around this time of the year it can be hard to convince ourselves to hit the gym-- all we want to do is be outside and enjoy the daylight! But don't you fret. Maintaining your workout does not need to retract from your summer plans-- it’s time to take your fitness outdoors.
And WHO better to train with, than our friend, Daphnie Yang? A killer personal trainer and the creator of HIIT IT®: a challenging, comprehensive, intense, effective and FUN total body workout that will really pump up those endorphins. I met Daphnie a few months ago when I took her class and I fell in LOVE. She is brilliant, non-stop smiling energy, and she will make you SWEAT.
Whether it's your first fitness class or your hundredth, injured or healthy, Daphnie teaches all levels in a Judgment-Free Zone. As a student, you really feel her support as she doesn't shy away from friendly eye contact as she cheers you on, from beginning to end, and always offers modifications as needed. When you're sweating through your personal HIIT IT® tank within the first 10 minutes, you can’t help but smile at the person next to you! The community is welcoming and filled with all ages, shapes and abilities.
“ Each body-changing class burns up to 800 calories, blasts fat , sky rockets metabolism, sculpts lean muscle mass, strengthens the core and increases cardiovascular endurance.”
I’m counting down the days until we can HIIT IT® in Central Park with Daphnie. Until then, check out her podcast “Just One More!” #031 Spring Break Workout, which inspired our blog post. In this episode Daphnie and Joanna Shaw Flamm discuss important things to remember when moving your routine outdoors. Within the episode Daphnie provides you with a personal training routine—it’s like she’s right there with you.
At hOM we’re taking our classes onto rooftops and courtyards, so keep an eye out and be sure to ask the teacher in your building--Where the hOMies at?!
