Run, Walk Intervals with Rochelle M.
Intervals: This workout is designed for intermediate athletes who need a workout that includes both running and walking. Each interval duration will match the recovery time. For example, a 3-minute run will be followed by 3-minute walk.

Mini Cardio Party with John T.

Sprinting Bookends with Ackeem E.
Full Body + Weights + Sprint: You’ll need a set of dumbbells for this short strength circuit, bookended by two sprint-focused workouts on the treadmill. Each exercise and interval will have two variations. The first will be intense, and the second will be an easier variation. If you can make it through the first part of each, the rest will be smooth sailing!

Pyramid Scheme with Ackeem E.
Intervals: This is an excellent class to develop speed work, while simultaneously building your overall endurance. There is one pyramid of work. As the pyramid progresses, times will decrease and speed will increase.
