Read on to Learn More About Tabata TrainingIf you know me, you know I love interval training. These days we're adding some short and sweet ones in classes that are really fun. And effective! A lot of people are calling it Tabata training, which is interval training requiring you to kick butt for 20 seconds, rest for 10, as you cycle through a series of exercises. Some workouts are done in 8 minutes or less. There was even an article in the New York Times, talking about the Scientific 7-Minute Workout. You can read more about Tabata training in my last post too.
I like these shorter, but harder intervals so much I completed the Tabata Bootcamp Instructor Training Program. I researched some of popular programs but found too many of them unsafe and kind of cultish.
Tabata Bootcamp is different. For the trainer and the students. You get great workouts in class with me, plus online weight-loss meal planning help, daily 6-minute Tabata videos to jumpstart your metabolism, and daily recipes.
Yes, other programs are very popular--and crowded--so personal attention is low so it's pretty much one-size-fits-all. I, on the other hand, keep my groups small so I can provide attention to detail and modify exercises so everyone can get a safe and effective workout. It's a very effective way to work with a certified personal trainer at a fraction of the cost of private training.
As a Certified Health Coach, I take the regular Tabata Bootcamp Program one step further and add my behavioral modification coaching techniques. You'll receive weekly tips and homework to help you create lasting change that extends way past the end of the program.
Oh, and just FYI, unless your trainer is a certified nutritionist or registered dietician, she/he can not legally prescribe a diet for you. With me being certified by Tabata Bootcamp, you'll have access to the Tabata bootcamp website where a dietician has developed a diet plan to help you lose weight as you go through the program.
It's a great program that blends highly effective exercise science with nutritional and lifestyle/behavioral coaching so you can not only make changes in your life and your body, but learn how to maintain your new and improved body long after the program is over!
