What Are The Benefits and Advantages of HILI Workouts?

As you may know, there are different types of workouts to choose from when trying to reach your fitness goals. For example, you could use high impact workouts or decide to go with a high-intensity-low-impact (HILI) workout. Although both of these choices can help you achieve results, there are several advantages to utilizing high-intensity-low-impact workouts such as the Lagree Fitness Method, and today we’ll be discussing those.

High-Intensity Low-Impact (HILI) workouts provide a combination of high-intensity exercises without putting excessive strain on the joints. This type of workout can be highly effective for many people and offer a wide range of benefits, both physically and mentally. The following list highlights just some of the many benefits and advantages of choosing a high-intensity-low-impact workout.

  1. Reduced Wear and Tear On Joints: Over time, repeated high-impact movements can lead to wear and tear on the joints, particularly the knees, ankles, and hips. HILI exercises can provide a way to achieve a high-intensity workout while minimizing the risk of the cumulative damage on joints that can result from repetitive high-impact activities. Since the impact is low, there is reduced stress and impact on the joints. This makes them especially suitable for individuals who have joint pain, arthritis, or are prone to joint injuries. The low-impact nature can be particularly beneficial for older adults, individuals recovering from injury, as well as those already suffering from previous joint damage.
  2. Rehabilitation and Recovery: For those recovering from certain injuries, HILI workouts can be a safer way to reintroduce exercise and regain strength without risking further injury as the lower impact nature of HILI can lead to a decreased risk of stress fractures, tendonitis, and other overuse injuries that are more commonly associated with high-impact exercises.
  3. Accessibility and Versatility: HILI workouts can be more accessible for populations that might not be suited for high-impact activities, such as older adults, obese individuals, those with certain chronic conditions, and pregnant or postpartum women. Additionally, HILI workouts such as the Lagree Fitness Method can be modified easily to accommodate different fitness levels.
  4. Less Intimidation for Beginners: High-impact activities can be intimidating or uncomfortable for those who are new to exercise. HILI workouts like those using the Lagree Fitness Method offer a more approachable way to engage in intense exercise without the fear of possible injury or the potential intimidation and anxiety often felt by beginners just starting out on their fitness journey. Level One by Lagree also offers exclusive private sessions for both singles and couples that are tailored specifically for your individual needs. These private sessions are very helpful for those who prefer the confidence acquired with a more one-on-one experience while mastering the exercise techniques in preparation for participating in group classes later on.
  5. Effective Calorie Burn, Improved Metabolism and Increased Fat Loss: High-intensity workouts can lead to an increased post-exercise oxygen consumption. This is often referred to as the "afterburn" effect, meaning you continue to burn calories at a higher rate even after your workout is completed. High-intensity workouts can also result in a higher calorie burn within a shorter period of time compared to low and moderate-intensity workouts. Also, when combined with a proper diet, HILI workouts can promote fat loss while preserving lean muscle mass, which is useful for both weight management and weight loss.
  6. Cardiovascular Benefits and Improved Bone Density: HILI workouts elevate the heart rate, which helps improve blood flow and cardiovascular fitness, as well as overall endurance. Additionally, studies have shown that low-impact weight-bearing exercises can help increase bone density, potentially reducing the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
  7. Muscle Building and Toning, Plus Enhanced Flexibility and Balance: HILI workouts using the Lagree Fitness Method also incorporate strength training elements, which can aid in muscle building and toning. The HILI workouts at Lagree Fitness also help improve flexibility and balance by incorporating the slower and very deliberate movements one often associates with yoga and Pilates.
  8. Mental Benefits: High-intensity workouts are known for leading to the release of endorphins, which are natural mood elevators. Not only can this help reduce stress and anxiety, but it can even help alleviate the symptoms of depression.
  9. Time-Efficient: Given the intensity of the workout, HILI routines often require less time to achieve similar or even better results compared to longer, less intense workouts, making them ideal for people with busy schedules.

Now that you’ve learned of just a few of the benefits and advantages to choosing a high-intensity-low-impact workout over other workout routines, set up a time for your first session and experience firsthand why using the Lagree Fitness Method is helping people achieve their fitness goals. With the ability to choose from private couple or individual sessions, taking a group class, or having one of our highly trained instructors bring our state of the art microformer equipment to your home for a one-on-one session, there is certain to be a choice that fits your needs.
