History of Tabata Method:
In the mid-1990’s, Dr. Izumi Tabata, at the National Institute of Fitness and Sport in Tokyo, Japan started using different exercise protocols to study their effect on energy production systems in athletes. After a number of very intense protocols, the team discovered one method that produced extraordinary repeatable improvements in athletic performance (VO2Max, anaerobic threshold, fat loss, and aerobic conditioning). What emerged became known as the Tabata Method, or Tabata Intervals.
