“Wayne’s Way, Right All Along”, says Science.

An article published in the Journal of Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism has demonstrated that high-intensity exercise training (Wayne’s Way) is more beneficial in whole body and abdominal fat loss than low-intensity (commonly called endurance or aerobic training).

HIIT ( High Intensity Exercise Training) is currently “hot”, endorsed by exercise guru’s as the latest and best way to burn calories, especially fat. But Wayne Bourque and his kick-yer-butt mix of calisthenics and boxing has known this all along.

This study, titled “Effects of high-intensity exercise training on body composition, abdominal fat loss, and cardiorespiratory fitness in middle-aged Korean females” is important because the researchers were able to compare high intensity and low intensity exercise training sessions that burned the identical amount of calories and they found that while both forms of exercise resulted in improved aerobic fitness, the HIIT showed higher reductions in total body fat and abdominal fat in particular.

"If you are looking for a butt kicking workout, you have to head to a boxing class at Centre Ring! It's definitely a challenge but the demanding, yet supportive teachers drive you to push yourself just that much harder each class. Working out in a group is inspiring and helps us to hold each other accountable to attaining our fitness goals! The best part (other than the rock hard abs you'll develop) is the fact that you're not just a 'member number' at Centre Ring. The staff make the effort to know your name and welcome you warmly to their class. This respect is integral in fostering an environment that drives you to succeed. Centre Ring is the hardest, but most rewarding challenge and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone of all levels!"
