Created by 20+ sports scientists, coaches, professors and researchers, the Science and Application of High-Intensity Interval Training Course has the practical knowledge you need to understand the science behind HIIT, implement an arsenal of training weapons, and ultimately improve athlete performance and stand out in the field.

Until now, figuring out how to effectively implement HIIT has meant spending tons of time pulling what pieces you can from university courses, research abstracts, conferences, a few Youtube videos and years of professional experience.

But the Science and Application of High-Intensity Interval Training Course solves these problems as it combines the latest research and decades of elite-level experience in one comprehensive, self-paced, cost-effective course.

The course runs in two cohorts. The enrollments for the first will open in December 2020, with the course starting in January 2021. The second cohort will open for enrollment in August 2021, with the course starting in September 2021. If you are interested in enrolling in either course, get in touch with us by enquiring now!

Practical Tools and Information for Applying HIIT

Scientific theory is an important foundation for understanding and using HIIT – but it’s just the beginning.

HIIT Course teaches you this essential theoretical framework behind the why and how of HIIT training, then layers in practical knowledge to help you develop programs that work for your specific athletes, team, and sport.

After completing the course, you’re ready to make a measurable, meaningful, sustainable impact on athlete performance – the kind of results that set you apart.

Exclusive Knowledge You Can Trust

It takes a career to develop on-the-job knowledge. Even then, you might not discover what truly works best for your athletes.

Have a strong network for inspiration, ideas and feedback? You still may not have access to elite coaches and researchers that guarantee your training methods are top-tier.

HIIT Course combines insights from over 20 scientists, researchers and coaches with decades of lab and real-world experience at the top of their fields.

What you learn is scientifically-backed and performance-proven at the highest levels.

Fast, Effective, Frustration-Free Learning

Sorting through dozens of abstracts to pull out practical insights involves a lot of time and frustration. On-the-job learning takes a career’s worth of trial and error experience. Traditional University courses can be expensive and inflexible, requiring you to be at a certain place, at a certain time.

HIIT Course saves you frustration, confusion and effort: Everything you need to understand and apply HIIT is in one easy to use, self-paced platform.

Whether you’re traveling with your team or waiting for the next training session to start, learn whenever and wherever is best for you.

After completing the course, you will know:

The origin, history and evolution of HIIT training.

The best practices that have emerged over decades of experimentation.

The biochemistry and anatomy behind HIIT as a powerful metabolic training tool.

The components of a HIIT workout and how to tailor training to sport/athlete.

How to fine-tune HIIT workouts based on athlete measured physiological response.

How to incorporate HIIT into a program – without losing performance and progress

The physiology of stress, how training and lifestyle factors affect health/wellbeing.

How to define and measure training load.

How to measure athletes’ holistic stress response, and optimize programming.

Sport-specific mindsets and strategies to implement HIIT with athletes and teams.

Who is this course for?

Created for Sports Scientists and Coaches, By Sport Scientists and Coaches.

The course is ideal for students and recent graduates. The HIIT Course not only teaches the fundamentals of HIIT but also the importance of context – in translating theoretical knowledge to practical application – giving you an edge in getting that job.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
