HIIT: (High Intensity Interval Training): Non-stop powerhouse session! It’s all the rage and growing in popularity! The premise is a shorter workout session—2:1 ration work to rest (maximum effort, easy effort), increased and/or similar fat and calorie burning. Burn calories without losing muscle—the exercise after burn exponentially increases.

Spin-X: This program consists of spinning and cross training in the same class: bikes, then into the gym for some cross training work, then back to the bikes and so forth...P.S. Think of it as boot camp on wheels!
