The intensity of an HSM | Core workout not only helps build strength but also drives a cardio response making it an effective workout. Your heart rate will rise within the first few minutes of class because moves on the megaformer are designed to engage multiple muscle groups at once. You might be in an Express Lunge on the back of the machine focusing on your quads and hamstrings, but you are also engaging your core to maintain balance. While we amp up the intensity, we also keep the stress on your joints low by minimizing impact. So, when you're going for that "cardio workout," rest assured that your HSM | Core coach will help you achieve the perfect combination of cardio, strength and flexibility.
Have you tried our new MegaHIIT class? We really amp up the intensity with intervals off the megaformer for a sweat-dripping routine!
