Tabata Training in Long Island

Much of the Team Training at Big Al’s is modeled after what is called “Tabata Training.” Tabata Training was named for Japanese scientist, Dr. Izumi Tabata, and a team from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo. Dr. Tabata and his colleagues conducted research on two groups of athletes to determine workout effectiveness: the first group trained at a moderate intensity level for five days a week for six weeks, at one hour workouts. The other HIIT Training group trained four days a week for six weeks with workouts lasting only four minutes and 20 seconds with little rest between sets.

After analyzing the results from each group, the studies on Tabata’s high intensity interval training were revealing:

  • The group that worked out more often and for longer had gains in cardiovascular abilities but little to none in muscular (anaerobic) ability.
  • The high intensity interval group showed significant gains in their cardiovascular abilities and their muscular (anaerobic) ability.

Big Al’s Team Training takes some of the interval training (HIIT Training) methodologies made famous by the Tabata workout. While our sessions last longer than 4:20, you will experience exercise routines that challenge you to push yourself for short periods of time followed by short periods of rest, then more intense exercise. The results come quick and are great for anyone who is looking to improve their level of fitness or strength.
