Excess Post Oxygen Consumption (EPOC)

A HIIT workout makes your metabolism burn fat up to 48 hours after you have trained. The Excess Post Oxygen Consumption process causes this. All you have to do is to focus on this afterburn effect during your training. That means training in  a steady and constant pace is not enough, you'll need to step up the intensity of your training. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is perfect to achieve this!

Benefits of EPOC

EPOC makes your body absorb more oxygen, so you recover faster; replenish your hormonal system recover your energy supply and repair your cells. All this consumes loads of energy and thus - you guessed it - you burn a lot more calories.


Push yourself to the limit during your Workoutclub HIIT workout and then drop on the couch to let the EPOC do its work. Your body will continue to process the fuel it receives as if it is still training.
