HIGH Fitness is a hardcore fun fitness class that incorporates interval training with music you love, and intense easy to follow fitness choreography. It combines fun (pop songs old and new that you know and love), with intensity (intervals, plyometrics, and cardio), and consistency (each song has a specific routine). This makes a recipe for success, repeat participation, and results! HIGH Fitness produces a high caloric burn and full-body toning through its carefully formulated choreography, alternating between intense cardio peaks and toning tracks.
