Drop in during January for an intense, efficient, fat-blasting workout called Tabata! Learn how to work at the highest intensity to make the most gains in a short period of time. New! Women’s Self Defense Introduction Wednesday, January 22 • 6:30-8:30pm #W14625 Members: FREE, Non-Members: $10 ...............................................

This 1-day course emphasizes looking for signs to prevent incidents and how to escape if attacked. You will be trained to spot danger and avoid hazardous situations. Both classroom discussion and physically performing techniques is involved. Classes by Leonum Safety and Security Management Firm. Ages 19+.

Tabata is a form of high intensity interval training that can offer more health benefits in a shorter period of time than traditional cardiovascular exercise. It’s efficient and can fit in almost anyone’s busy schedule to boost your metabolism and heart rate up in a matter of seconds. Instead of hours of working out, Tabata can be completed in four minute segments totaling 30-45 minutes. However, it’s important to remember, warming up your muscles is vital to reducing the risk of injury so always make sure you warm up for 5-7 minutes before starting this intense workout if you try this outside of classes. Founded by a Japanese scientist named Izumi Tabata and fellow colleagues in Japan, Tabata has been proven to provide a greater impact and better results in less time than traditional cardio workouts. At the Kroc Center Tabata training will take different forms, however the basic outline of the Tabata training method is: • 20 seconds of intense training + 10 seconds of rest, repeated 4 times = 1 round • A class can consist of 8 to 15 rounds (2 minutes per round) depending on the class • Modifications can be done for any fitness level so you don’t have to be a fitness guru to attend these classes
