Raven Gambrell instructs the following:
MIX incorporates a variety of training principles combined with both weights and athletic drills for a total body workout in under one hour. Designed with short intervals of weights and athletic drills, matched with MyZone target heart rate zones, this class delivers a truly cardiovascular and total body challenge.
*MAX* (Full Body)
MAX (Maximum Interval Training) is a 30-minute class that promises to push you to your maximum levels of exertion.
For those who are unfamiliar with interval training, it is essentially a form of training where you vary your exertion in several intervals. For instance instead of running for 30 minutes you might divide this into two minutes of jogging, one minute of sprinting and five minutes of walking and repeat this several times.
Although the MAX class is inside, the same logic will apply with the use of plyometric moves, weighted and body weight strength exercises. It's only 30 minutes, but in this case, 30 minutes is plenty of time!
Afterburn is an innovative, circuit-style class that utilizes rowing machines. The class is based around your MyZone belt, pushing you to stay in the "Afterburn" zone. Moving through 7 different circuits, you will get a full-body workout that is guaranteed to give your day a boost!
PUSH alternates strength and cardio sets with short periods of rest. Classic interval training, PUSH will yield continuous dips and spikes in your heart rate; it's great metabolic conditioning! PUSH will absolutely PUSH you to your limits.
