When you hear the word athletic what comes to mind? A runner? A swimmer? A weight lifter?

What does it take to be considered athletic? The average person is active for about two hours a week, which is just below the recommended two and half hours a week. The average athlete works out 1-2 hours a day with a rest day each week, so about 10 hours week. And the type of training depends on what they’re preparing for, but across the board most athletes incorporate strength training and cardio into their workout regimes. And high intensity interval training (HIIT) is a common go-to training style across the board.

In addition to athletes using HIIT, there are many benefits being seen through recent fitness studies on this style of training. Beyond it being one of the best ways to train, it has benefits on the cellular level. HIIT combined with weight training can improve cellular function and slow the aging process at a cellular level. So not only will you look athletic and fit, you’ll also feel younger and better! But back to the image that comes to mind..

When you hear athletic, do you think about muscles or just a slim body? Do you like the athletic body or do you prefer a little more cushion? Do you think athletic is sexy or scary?

It was a gorgeous, breezy night in Oak Park, and I…
