The HIIT with Hannah Story
I have been an athlete my entire life. At a young age, I discovered my passion for running, competitive sports, and all things outdoors. This lifestyle was the foundation on which I developed as an athlete, leading to amazing experiences as a varsity soccer player and an athletic therapy trainer during university.
As my varsity career came to an end, I discovered High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and instantly fell in love. It combined all of the elements I loved from soccer (agility and sprint training), running (cardio endurance) and the gym (strength training). Yet it never gets boring and you can do it absolutely anywhere. HIIT has been part of my fitness routine ever since!
For years I designed my own HIIT programs and informally coached friends and family. While working full time in the tech industry, I became certified and 'HIIT with Hannah' was born. I started out teaching at lululemon, who brings in local instructors to teach various classes in-store, and from there it really blossomed!
The best part of this journey has been the people I've met along the way. YOU guys are the ones who inspire me to do what I do. At the end of the day, I love bringing people together through the collective sweat (and burpees). I love that people look forward to training with me. I love that people don't just see, but FEEL the benefits from taking part in HIIT with Hannah. I've made sure that regardless of your ability or age, or whether your goal is to tone up, build strength or increase endurance, there's something for everyone at HIIT with Hannah.
TRAIN LIKE YOU MEAN IT
I am not an "influencer" or a "guru." Nor will I ever claim to be. I see myself as a resource, motivator, coach and friend to those who are looking to explore their fitness potential.
This is my passion.
I decided to harness that passion and make it my career. My experience from working at an early stage tech start up, combined with the momentum from HIIT with Hannah gave me the confidence and skills to do what I love. I hope I can inspire others to do the same.
