Is HIIT Hot or Hated?

Seminar focused on psychological aspects of high intentsity training

March 1, 2016 — 

The next installment of the popular FKRM’s Health, Leisure, and Human Performance Research Institute’s (HLHPRI) Seminar Series takes place Friday, March 4 with Is HIIT Hot or Hated:  High-Intensity Interval Training from an Exercise Psychology Perspective.

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) appears to produce many of the physiological and biochemical effects of training at lower, more constant intensities, for longer periods of time. That’s great — especially if you’re looking to spend less time in the gym. Our speaker, Dr. Mary Jung, will address an aspect of HITT that has been relatively ignored, and is at least as important – the psychological dimension.

What: HLHP Research Institute Seminar Series — ‘Is HIIT Hot or Hated’
Who: Dr. Mary Jung, University of British Columbia Okanagan
When: Friday, March 4, 2016, 2:30 p.m.
Where: Room 136, Frank Kennedy Centre, University of Manitoba

The Seminar Series is HLHPRI flagship program, intended to foster the dissemination and discussion of the highly relevant and ever-evolving knowledge on health, leisure, and human performance, and the interaction of this knowledge across disciplines.
