Core Health & Fitness hosted the first EMEA Master Trainer HIIT Summit at the Northwood Club, London. Lead Master Trainer Sonja Friend Uhl came over from the US to teach 8 Master Instructors from London, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and Denmark.

The aim of the High Intensity Training and Master Trainer workshop was to:

  • Provide and work on variety in the workouts
  • Work on programmes to make members feel like they are part of a team
  • Keep Score
  • Achieve Results

The Master team was taken through their paces with a partner workout created by Sonja Friend Uhl and Jeff Dilts. The aim of the workout was for each team to finish the rounds as quickly as they could, measurable by time & weight.

HIITMill X – Farmers Carry for 50 Strides (each partner)

Team Timings:
Jose & Adam – 4.06 minutes
