Breakout: Body & Movement Featuring Dr. Martin Gibala (Concurrent Session)

The fact that exercise provides tremendous health benefits isn’t a secret. But those without the time (or the desire) to exercise need to make every minute of physical activity count towards their goals. Dr. Martin Gibala, author and chair of the kinesiology department at McMaster University, has studied the beneficial effects of exercise at both molecular and whole-body levels and suggests you may not need as much time as you think to realize the benefits of exercise. One of his latest studies found that three, 10-minute high intensity interval training (HIIT) sessions per week, boosted fitness to the same extent as two and a half hours per week of traditional endurance training. Dr. Martin Gibala will share time-efficient exercise strategies to increase calorie burn and fat reduction, in order to reduce your risk of diabetes and reverse the aging process and promote heart health.
