High-intensity interval training (HIIT) was historically designed as an alternative to continuous moderate intensity exercise to improve the performance of high-level athletes. Over the years, HIIT has evolved and grown in popularity in health and fitness, offering superior performance enhancement, weight loss, and efficiency in training. This session will explore the benefits and potential safety issues of HIIT to consider for patients in both orthopedic/sports and cardiovascular rehabilitation settings.

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe the difference between continuous moderate intensity training and high-intensity interval training.
2. Explain the benefits of high-intensity interval training in healthy individuals and in those with cardiac and metabolic disease.
3. Apply the current concepts of high-intensity interval training in the clinical setting with safety considerations for the discussed populations.
