Circuit Training is a form of body conditioning or endurance training or resistance training using high-intensity with various equipment such as TRX, Bars, Ropes, Weights, 4D PRO, medicine balls, steps, cardio equipment, boxing bags and Pilates reformer. It targets strength building or muscular endurance.
An exercise ‘circuit’ is one completion of all prescribed exercises in the program. When one circuit is complete, one begins the first exercise again for the next circuit. Traditionally, the time between exercises in circuit training is short, often with rapid movement to the next exercise.
Studies at Baylor University and The Cooper Institute show that circuit training is the most time efficient way to enhance cardiovascular fitness and muscle endurance. Studies show that circuit training helps women to achieve their goals and maintain them longer than other forms of exercise or diet.

One advantage is that reduced station times will encourage the participants to lift heavier weights, which means they can achieve overload with smaller number of repetitions: typically, in the range of 25 to 50 depending on their training goals.
