Wellness Center Masking Updates:

• All patients and gym members will wear a mask when utilizing the locker rooms unless using the showers.

• Once members leave the designated workout areas, face masks need to be worn.
• Gym members who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 must wear a facemask at all times in all areas.
• All patients and gym members will have their temperature checked and will be asked a series of questions about symptoms and exposure.
Tabata training is a popular high-intensity interval training format consisting of 20 seconds of all-out, intense work followed by 10 seconds of passive recovery. HIIT protocols such as Tabata are effective and promising for exercisers whose goals are weight loss and performance enhancement. Water exercise is a great nonimpact fitness experience that includes full-body movements. Combine the two and you have a powerful HIIT workout that features all the intensity without the impact and joint stress!
