The popularity of high intensity interval training (HIIT) has been on the rise for years. According to ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine), HIIT involves repeated bouts of high intensity work followed by varied lower intense recovery times. The intense work periods are typically performed at or above 80% of the theoretical max heart rate, which should feel “hard or very hard” for the exerciser. And it varies in length from as short as 10 seconds to several minutes long. Recovery periods are usually performed at 40 to 50% estimated max HR, which should feel “very comfortable” to the individual and last the same length, less or more than the intense periods.

Small Group Training (SGT) comes in many styles, is delivered in many different ways and enjoyed by countless individuals. It’s an important way to create energy, excitement and motivation. 

But, what exactly is SGT? Most fitness industry articles refer to it as having group size from 2 to 12, some advocate even higher numbers. In adult education, a small group can range from 2 to 8 students. An ACE article in 2012 defines SGT as, “big enough to be fun, but small enough to still be quality.”
