About this class

Experience ultimate conditioning at its best! Experience the PSF version of the Tabata protocol! Our take on this popular approach has your performing each strength exercise or cardio drill at a high-intensity for 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of active recovery and repeated with variety for 8 sets. Each of these 4 minute dynamic intervals contains simple, yet super intense, movement designed to fatigue specific areas of the body. This method of training has been proven to increase fat loss and improve stamina. Take the Tabata challenge! During a typical session, expect to use a BOSU & 2 sets of dumbbells (light & heavy) *Note: expect plyometric cardio and high-intensity strength training using the BOSU, an intense balance device. If you are new to using it, please alert your instructor before class begins!

Tabata Express with Brittany
Wow! Fast paced and intense!
Tabata Express with Brittany
I liked that this was a fast and upbeat class but the music was way too loud, which also lead to the instructor’s mic being way too loud.
Tabata Express with Alyson
I feel like I was just thrown in, but after 5 mins you get the rhythm. This is now my favorite class at PSF
Tabata Express with Heather
Crazy loud music Little to no instruction
Tabata Express with Heather
So many thoughts. First off- this is not a Tabata class. It is a 30 minutes straight, change exercises every 10-30 seconds class. Secondly - the instructor was not very encouraging, but rather yelled and guilted you if you didnt move fast enough from exercise to exercise. She also never provided safety cues and often told us to move faster through exercises that were putting the shoulder is a sensitive position. That being said - if you are looking to blast calories in a short 30 minute span... this class is for you. The room was warm, my heart rate was up, and I was drenched with sweat.
Tabata Express with Heather
mixed emotions about this one...left drenched and got a great workout, but instructor screams the whole time, gets in your face occassionally. More irritating than motivating.
Tabata Express with Erica
Incredibly fast-paced and effective. Good pre-work workout.
Tabata Express with Heather
Very intense workout. Loved how the instructor kept it moving but not great for new comers. Kind of felt like cattle herded in and out. A little crowded. High energy class!
Tabata Express with Heather
Good energy and tough class. Music could be better
Tabata Express with Erica
Okay class. Definitely not a traditional tabata class but keeps you moving the whole time. I prefer the circuit sculpt or signature class
Tabata Express with Lacessa
Intense!
Tabata Express with Lacessa
Great workout! High intensity and very fun!
Tabata Express with Erica
Not tabata, way too fast, music too loud. There were no breaks
Tabata Express with Pam
This is one of those nonstop workouts that makes you sweat but misses out on form. Lots of strange, too loud sounds like buzzers and bells, on top of too loud club music and instructor microphone feedback.
Tabata Express with Allison
Went by super quickly
Tabata Express with Kayla
Felt chaotic. Didn't follow tabata style.
Tabata Express with Kayla
It was not tabata style - the workouts didn't line up with the buzzers. There was no emphasis on form or safety either.
Tabata Express with Kayla
it wasn't real tabata. no 10 second breaks. no repetition for 8 sets of 20 seconds.
Tabata Express with Heather
The class is very fast. The instructor should take some time to explain the moves & also see is anyone is new.
Tabata Express with Alex
Fun
Tabata Express with Kayla
Too short
Tabata Express with Alex
Worst class I've done. The instructor had terrible form. And there was no methodology to the class. Woof
