Questions? We'll do our best to provide answers.
If there's something else you are wondering, feel free to contact us!
Of course, there's an app for that! You can use the Zen Planner app to easily sign up for classes via the mobile device of your choice. Just search for 'HIIT Lab' in the app and it's super easy to sign up for a class.
Pro tip: be sure to download the Member App not the Staff App. If you have any questions or want a quick tutorial, send us a quick note at email@example.com, we're always happy to help.
We currently run two ventilator fans throughout class to pull air out of the workout room and up through the roof for constant circulation. In addition to the ventilators we run extra large HEPA air filters on each end of the room.
While proof of vaccination is not required, we are verifying cards for those who have chosen to be vaccinated for the safety of our team.
Transmissions are currently on the rise, the COVID in-patient rate is still low. However, if that number begins to rise (>10 is the King County threshold) and more people in our community are at greater risk for getting seriously ill, we'll definitely institute changes to do our part.
Per WA State Mandate, masks are no longer required. However, if you have had close contact with someone who recently tested positive for COVID, we highly encourage wearing a mask until 5 days after the exposure.
Treadmills are shared but we have enough equipment to go around so you'll be the only person in class having contact with it. Get to class at least 5 minutes early so the instructor can tell you what to expect in the workout and get you what you need.
Once it is in your station, that's where it stays and you leave it there at the end of class. The instructors then sanitize everything between classes to make sure it's all so fresh and so clean for the next class.
HIIT stands for high-intensity interval training. It's a training technique in which you give all-out, 100% effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time. Who doesn't want that?
With treadmills, bikes, dumb bells, kettle bells, TRX and other equipment to experiment on, our expert instructors will guide and ensure you are using everything properly. If you haven't exercised in a while, there is no shame in pacing yourself during your first class. We want you to have a great experience, rather than cursing us as you exit. Lastly, please let our instructors know about any injuries or limitations. They will give you a modification, no problem!
Running doesn't have to be your jam prior to taking our class. No prior experience necessary! There are many ways to create intensity and challenge on treadmills without actually running.
The only competition you'll find here is with yourself. We'll guide you through 50 minutes of cardio and strength training that is constantly changing and always challenging, regardless of your fitness level. We're an all-inclusive kind of place without the buffet lines.
You are in luck! We've got two amazing Keiser™ bikes as an alternative to using a treadmill. They are pretty awesome and you can adjust intensity similar to the way you would in a spin class.
Each and every body is different, but we've witnessed some pretty incredible transformations when people consistently take 3-4 classes a week for three months or longer. Key word: CONSISTENTLY. On the other hand, don't be that guy who comes out quick out of gate working out everyday and then burns out just as fast. Those extra pounds didn't pack on overnight, so it will take time to take them off (and keep them off). Be patient. Be consistent. You will get out of it, what you put in!
We are located on 35th Ave SW, just north of Morgan Street (between Enterprise Car Rental & U-Haul).
HIIT and Pregnancy
First off, congrats!!! And yes, you can come to class but please provide a note with approval from your medical caregiver. Also, please make sure to tell your instructor (we never, ever assume) so they can provide modifications for exercises as needed. Also, walking with incline is always an excellent option if running does not feel good for you and your babe.
We strive to meet all fitness levels, including new mamas. But there are some important things you should know about your postpartum body to help you get the most out of your workouts, prevent injury and build your strength back in a supportive and functional way. Pregnancy takes a toll on your body (duh!) and for your ligaments particularly, it can take months to get them back to their pre-pregnancy state.
All this to say, make sure you've gotten the green light from your medical provider and please let our instructors know if you've had a baby in the last 9-12 months. You'll still get all the benefits of HIIT training, but it's wise to start back slow and take options that allow you to move in a way that is effective and safe for building your strength and endurance back (and maybe even better than ever!).
Your First Visit
For your first visit, be sure to arrive at least 10 minutes before class. That way you can learn the ropes, grab a spot and hydrate. This is one party where being late is most definitely not fashionable.
All you need to bring is a water bottle and we'll take care of the rest. And don't forget, attitude is everything (insert Grumpy Cat photo). So come with a positive one! We've never heard of anyone having much fun with a negative one. Just sayin'.
We do and they are fabulous! We even provide shampoo, conditioner, body wash and towels so you don't have to carry around your bathroom the rest of the day.
Hear from real people
"Love the HIIT style classes that always have appropriate warm up and cool downs. I always get a great sweat in and choose my own intensity but always feel encouraged by the coaches to push it a little further than if I were working out on my own."
