Circuits & Intervals (Includes GOLD Workouts)

While the words “circuit training” and “interval training” are often used interchangeably in fitness, did you know that they are not the same workouts? Both styles of workouts are effective, time-efficient workouts that can boost both your cardiovascular and strength training fitness. Let’s take a look at the differences between circuits and interval training.

Interval training comprises of short bouts of exercise. Throughout this workout, you will go as hard as you can for a movement, rest briefly to allow your body just enough time to recover, and then you will start to exercise again. Circuit training is one where you string a group of movements together for a longer period of time.

This Circuits and Interval Calendar is comprised of both HIIT, Circuit and Interval Training Classes from our GOLD program. While it is great to train with these types of workouts, we also want you to remember that it’s good to take a day to train in a different modality. Each week you will see a yoga, barre, or pilates class added to make sure your body is training in a different way. You will also find an ADOR (Active Day of Rest) thrown in each week. This is a day for you to move your body but in a less intense way and doing what you enjoy doing. Remember our bodies respond best to change – so change up the workouts that you are doing and train like an athlete!

This 28-Day Calendar uses the same training styles, HIIT, circuits, and intervals to strengthen the entire body. Of course, each workout is going to challenge you in a different way, and the wonderful trainers will give you options to make each workout successful for you! This workout will blast your heart rate, work your muscles, and leave you feeling strong and accomplished!

All exercises you perform are your own responsibility and you perform them at your own risk. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health provider before starting any physical exercise, fitness, or wellness regiments of any kind.
