The heart of the ZONE5 Team Training program is high-intensity interval training (HIIT), an enhanced form of interval training comprising alternating periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. HIIT sessions provide improved athletic capacity and condition, higher glucose metabolism, and accelerated fat burning.
A very significant element of the Team Training workout is excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC). Also called afterburn, EPOC is an increased rate of oxygen intake following HIIT training that results in the body’s burning fat for up to 24 hours after a workout.
For those seeking weight loss, the ZONE5 Team Training program can provide tremendous results; losing 15 pounds in your first month is not extraordinary when combined with a proper nutrition plan. Strength or performance-oriented individuals will see improvement in speed, stamina and power after only a few weeks of training. Those looking to improve their overall physique will notice significant trimming of the body’s fatty areas, greatly enhanced muscle tone, and enhanced symmetry.
