Collaborating with Team Equinox, the method is utilized to train runners of all abilities to Run Right, Hurt less, & Burn More. This precise running formula mathematically strikes a balance between aerobic and anaerobic forms of interval training. It maintains a strict balance between the four core principles: Speed, incline, duration, and recovery
. A natural benefit of this formula is the balance of forces acting on the body when running.
The Burn: Interval running has long been considered an athletes best tool for training for intensity and enduring strength. The BITE formula gives your accomplishes more work over time and is convenient. It has become widely accepted that high intensity interval training destroys the mother load of calories, and now, with a balanced approach (B.I.T.E.) you get that uncompromised burn, with less impact on the rest of your body. You’ll toast the fat, and cool the joints.
