HIIT plus HABIT-Queen Village

Active Mom HIIT plus H.A.B.I.T (full body interval training with an emphasis on hips, abs, butt and inner thigh)

Interval training is one of the best ways to strengthen muscles, improve cardio and burn calories long after the workout is over. High intensity exercise combined with low intensity "rests" provides a quick and effective workout, perfect for moms! I'm taking this popular format and combining it with my H.A.B.I.T. class for a 60-minute, full body workout that emphasizes hips, abs, butt and inner thighs.

All levels welcome (contact me if you are less than 3 months postpartum). This is not the best format for moms that experience knee pain with movements like squats and lunges.

Upcoming groups

  • Wednesdays ongoing beginning 11/15, from 9:15-10:15 am at Shot Tower Recreation Center in Queen Village, 101-31 Carpenter St, $12 drop-ins (please still register). Children as well as non-moms welcome! Please bring a yoga mat. **Class on 11/22 will be held at Mario Lanza Park**
