What Ever Happened to Moderate Fitness

Category : Health | Last Updated : Wednesday, Jan 16, 2019

I’ve spent the last few years being an active hiker and yogi, and I even started taking a few dance classes. Which is to say, I’ve got used to pushing myself physically, but mostly in situations where I could choose my own intensity. Then, a few months ago, I joined a gym and learned about a whole other world of pain. Gone, it seemed, were “regular” yoga classes, replaced with hot flow and added-weight strength training yoga. Then there were bootcamp classes and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) classes (which is just one kind of high-intensity workout), and one class where the teacher swore to add 30 seconds of high knees if she caught any of us slacking.
