SURGE FIT was created by two group fitness fanatics who wanted to create a format that fused the endorphin high of cardio moves with the body sculpting results of weight training in a simple but fun format that would appeal to everyone. Our philosophy is simple. Great Music + HIIT Cardio + Weight Training = Results. We have combined the best parts of popular exercise techniques and scientific research and added great music to get participants not only in amazing shape but also having the time of their lives. SURGE classes utilize minimum equipment, just a set of dumbbells, a mat, and some space to move.
Popular, sing-a-long tunes, unique moves, an encouraging group environment and inspiring coaching will set you up for success and keep you coming back for more. Feel the Surge!
How Surge Fit Works
Is Surge Fit a HIIT workout?
Surge Fit is a high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout. HIIT is a form of exercise that includes high intensity bursts of exercise, followed by a short recovery period. Surge is a multimodal form of HIIT that combines both strength training and cardio, yielding great results in cardiorespiratory fitness, strength, and calories burned.
Studies have shown that music can enhance performance in various exercise formats, including HIIT. Music not only motivates us to get moving, it impacts participants psychologically to make
feelings surrounding exercise more positive. Surge synchronizes movement to music to heighten the flow of the movement and help participants achieve the specific track objective whether that be quick feet in a cardio track or a slow weighted squat in the legs track.
Scared of Weights? Don't be!
A key component of Surge Fit is strength training, which yields both short and long term results. Resistance training increases muscle mass, which leads to a higher resting metabolic rate (the amount of calories you need just for your body to function). For every pound increase in trained muscle, you can raise your resting metabolic rate by 5-11 calories. Basically, your new muscle mass will keep working long after your Surge Fit class ends. Strength training also aids in joint stability, increases in bone density, and preservation of lean body mass with age. So grab your dumbbells and FEEL THE SURGE!
