Being a fitness trainer for over two decades, it’s my job to stay on top of all the latest fitness trends and workouts. From cardio, to weight training, to yoga and Pilates, I’ve tried it all and have worked many different exercise elements into my clients’ routines, depending on their individual needs and goals. But after all these years, there are certain workouts that have risen to the top of my list. HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is one of those methods.

HIIT is a combination of short, very-high intensity bursts of cardio exercise, followed by equal or longer periods of rest. For example, 30-60 seconds of sprinting, followed by a minute or two of walking. This type of training gets — and keeps — your heart rate up, and burns more fat in less time. HIIT is more effective than steady-state cardio because the intensity is higher. It speeds up your metabolism even more, helping you burn a maximum number of calories throughout the day.

Now, a HIIT workout is at the core of a really cool, cutting-edge fitness system called Vasper, which jams the benefits of over two hours of high-intensity exercise into a 21-minute session. That’s right — your body gets the equivalent of 2½ hours of continual exercise in a 21-minute, low-intensity interval workout. All of the benefits of a HIIT workout, in record time!  

Vasper’s compression and cooling elements create the effect of a high intensity workout without the time, effort, and muscle damage it takes to get the same results with typical exercise regimens. It’s hard to believe that this technology exists, but it does – and it really works! Instead of feeling exhausted after a workout — like you normally would after many hours of exercise — Vasper leaves you feeling invigorated. Another great benefit? Because of how the Vasper machine works, you don’t experience the body aches you’d typically feel after an intense workout.

So how does this brilliant fitness system work? Vasper is based on three scientifically proven principles: compression technology, cooling and interval training. When all of these elements work together, the results are totally incredible. Each Vasper protocol is a 21-minute interval training session, displayed on a tablet that’s fully integrated with machine’s bicycle. The interval training involves a warm-up period, followed by a series of sprint and rest intervals, scientifically-proven to increase the efficiency of the workout.

The interval training sessions are totally customizable too, allowing for adjustments in duration, intensity, resistance, and speed. The pressure and cooling can also be modified based on a variety of factors including ability, comfort level, and performance. Heart rate monitors and a graph of power output is displayed on screen, so you can track your performance while you work out.

The compression technology is really cool! When you’re on the Vasper machine you wear special compression “cuffs” on your arms and legs, which safely compresses your muscles to build up lactic acid more quickly. This replicates the effect of an intense exercise session that would typically take a lot more time and effort.

Finally, the cooling feature of this awesome device helps fight post-workout pain. Keeping the body cool during a workout eases additional physical stress, and reduces existing pain and inflammation you may be feeling. So even though you’re doing the equivalent of a couple of hours of exercise, you won’t experience the usual aches and pains that come after all that activity.
