What is Tabata?

Tabata is a form of high intensity interval training and features exercises that last four minutes.  In Tabata you will push yourself as hard as you can on each exercise for around 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds – completing each exercise eight times.

Tabata exercises include movements such as push ups, squats and burpees and knee high jogs.

What will it do for me?

Is it right for me?

Tabata a high impact exercise that may be best for people who are already used to high intensity exercise and is suitable for everyone aged 16 and over.  If you have an ongoing medical condition or injury you should consult with your GP or medical practitioner before beginning a new exercise programme.

What should I wear?

You should wear comfortable, flexible clothes that let you move easily.  Avoid very baggy clothes and bear in mind you may get very warm.  You should wear trainers that give you adequate support and stability.
