Kevin Young crafts intense new workout regimen at HIIT 10

Posted

Kevin Young, a local business owner and workout instructor, recently opened his own gym called HIIT 10. It utilizes Young’s passion for exercise with an effective regimen.

A native of   Cleveland, the 37-year-old attended Bradley Central High School before going to Lee and majoring in business administration.

Young works out with his wife, Jessica. He worked as personal trainer for 11 years. He created the name of his gym, HIIT 10, as a combination of several factors.

HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training, which means you work extremely hard for a certain amount of time followed by resting for a short period. The workout times can vary depending on skill level, and can go from 30 seconds all the way up to three minutes. While the concept of HIIT isn’t Young’s sole creation, he has made it his own through his program.

“High intensity interval training allows you to get a lot of results for the time you’re taking,” he said. “It allows you to maximize your time for people who simply don’t have the time to devote to exercising. This is great for busy parents, who have a small window to work out.”

The HIIT 10 logo itself is a clever design, as the 10 references the 10 workout stations a guest will go through. The letter “I” also contains two marks, which symbolize the two warmups completed during training, ending in 12 total stations at three minutes each. Young said his workout takes about 42 minutes to complete.

Opening his business on Oct. 1, 2018, Young said he was excited to see nearly 50 residents sign up for HIIT 10. By the time December arrived, he had almost 100 members.

A unique part of Young’s workout design — which features integrated technology — is any member can simply walk in during operating hours and get started. The first station will be open with a wait of no longer than three minutes, and you can progress through the workouts from there. This avoids the stress of missing specific appointment times due to outside factors, and makes for a relaxed workout option, since people know they can come at any time.

“So many places are constrained by a class schedule. This is a place that’s flexible, but where you’ll still get results,” Young added.

The program involves weight training, body weight resistance training and numerous other workouts that work cardio, core strength and flexibility.

Young said the program is individualized for each person, so an extremely fit person will have the workout ramped up to match their experience and truly give them a challenge. On the opposite side, someone who rarely if ever works out will also be given a challenge that’s scaled back to fit their needs.

Program users range from ages 18-62. Young said he learns exactly what each person is capable of before crafting their workout regimen, so as to scale the movements appropriately for each person’s ability level.

“A lot of people have taken different ideas surrounding HIIT workouts and made their own, but my combination of flexible timing, the various workout stations and range of workout devices makes these workouts unique. Every day is different, so you never know exactly what you’ll be doing, and in what order,” Young said.

“We’re very comprehensive. It’s not just cardio. It’s not just strength. We try to work out your whole body and build muscle while losing fat,” he said.

You can either sign up for unlimited workouts each month, or come 12 times per month, which is three times per week.
