HIIT BOX - HIIT MIX
HIIT BOX’s HIIT MIX class is no-nonsense, classic HIIT workout set in a old school studio in Gowanus.
Fitness clothes +sneakers.
Classic HIIT class.
The typical class has four sections: (i) 5 min warm up (think squats, jumping jacks, etc.), (ii) 4 mins of cardio/toning moves to get warm (we did 2 mins of hurdle jumps into burpees and 2 mins of side planks), (iii) tabata of squat jumps w/ resistance bands on (20 secs on and 10 secs off 8 times through), (iv) a circuit- we did six exercises for 30 secs on and 10 secs off four times through one time at each exercise station, and (v) the finisher was each of those same six exercises one more time through, but for 1 min each.
Example circuit exercises were: burpees, hurdle jumps, mountain climbers, squats into weighted ball tosses, planks, deadlifts.
Typical equipment used: weights (heavy and medium), gliders, kettlebell, resistance bands, weighted balls.
This class is a true HIIT class (which I love!).
The instructor pushes you on form and your weight choices (so that you challenge yourself).

Studio is clean, minimal, and basic (not in a bad way).
The instructors are knowledgeable, encouraging, and helpful on form.
The classes are small enough that you’ll get attention from the instructor.
Music could be better and louder. It plays from a regular speaker, not a “sound system”.
If you’re the first class of the day, be aware. I was locked out for a minute (in the cold).
There’s one shower located in the bathroom, but they ask you to wait until the next class starts to shower (so that the incoming class can use the bathroom if they need it). Another shower is coming.
Lockers, but bring your own lock. The locker area is visible from the exercise space, so I felt comfortable leaving my stuff out in the open.
Yes! To get a true HIIT experience that works my entire body!
