HIIT or ‘High Intensity Interval Training’ is a type of training that is for everybody of all fitness levels, from the very beginners to the well rehearsed fitness enthusiasts. The Hiitmat has this week launched by Kickstarter with the aim of raising £45,000 over the next 60 days to make the jump into production. Pledges start from £100 for the first 50 early bird backers, with shipping expected to take place during December 2018 if the Kickstarter campaign is successful and manufacturing proceeds smoothly.
The development team behind the smart workout mat explain a little more about it design and functionality “HIIT effectively means doing an exercise at between 80-100% intensity (so really going for it) for a set duration/interval and then having a rest for a set duration/interval. Then simply repeat this for as many ‘intervals’ as you like. Below are three examples of HIIT workouts, ranging from beginner level to advanced. The main difference between difficulty levels in HIIT is the ratio between exercise time and rest time, as demonstrated in the below examples.”
