Bike Interval Training is a HIIT principle cardio workout that involves some high intensity work periods and some lower intensity recovery periods intended to give you a killer cardio workout and allow your body to continue to burn calories even after your workout is complete.
Traditional cardio workouts (aka slow and go cardio) only allow you to burn calories as you are training. If you don't want to perform these intervals on the bike they can be done on any other cardio machine - the bike is just your best bang for your overall buck in terms of not being as taxing on the joints but also allowing people of all fitness levels to push themselves and make it through one of these workouts.
This workout is to be performed during your non "weight training days" ... They involve a quick 5 minute warm up on the bike followed by 7 beginner bike intervals where for 30 seconds you push yourself almost as hard as you can and then you have an active (light pedaling) recovery for 1.5 minutes. You repeat this process until the 7 "intervals" are complete and then there is another 11 minutes of cycling. 6 minutes at above medium recovery training and then 5 minutes of very light cool down. If you prefer to perform this workout on another piece of cardio equipment that is ok but the bike is ideal.

We are the creator of the "Body Fit" Program - which was converted into an ACL injury prevention training regime at the University of Western Australia and is currently being used by the Autralian Women's National Field Hockey team, the Australian Women's Rugby Team, and others. If you are involved in any sports teams (particularly those with female athletes between 14-25 contact us and we can get you this program - female athletes in the age range mentioned are at the highest risk for ACL damage and this program has been scientifically proven to help prevent injury. It can also be used to prevent the same injury for male athletes as well - it's just females are more at risk).
We have a strong belief in using scientifically proven methods, along with personal results and tailoring. With an Honours Kinesiology background and education from one of the top KIN schools/programs in the world we pride ourselves on understanding the science behind everything we promote and are working to constantly learn new things/new techniques/new styles of training and eating to help maximize our clients results.
We think of every body composition goal as a science experiment with your body and want to educate you on how to get there.
