Prevalence and predictors of dropout from HIIT

What makes sedentary people drop out?

The findings of this review suggest that sedentary individuals tolerate high-intensity interval training (HIIT) interventions and show lower dropout rates than what has been reported for other exercise interventions.

The predictors of dropout from HIIT were a longer session time, higher time effort per week, and overall time effort per intervention. It was also found that dropout rates were lower in cycling-based interventions than in walking/ running-based interventions.
