<upd_detl>Saw flyers and posters for classes at Shinjuku Ward Sports Center as HIIT with ヒート furigana. ヒット also appears online. Has value as an entry because the pronunciations are novel. Wikipedia doesn't even include the readings, interestingly. Almost certainly not エイチ・アイ・アイ・ティー.

If you want to be strict about etymology, I suspect ヒット is indeed from English "hit"(video ref), while ヒート is a native interpretation of the acronym.</upd_detl>

高強度インターバルトレーニング seems significantly more common online then when the ngram database was collected. Could add if interested.

高強度インターバルトレーニング(こうきょうどインターバルトレーニング、英: High-intensity interval training, HIIT)とは、

Apparently sometimes called "hit training" in English, which explains the ヒット alternate. (video, sound)</upd_refs>

<upd_detl>Maybe this works.</upd_detl>
The wiki article frequently describes this as an exercise regimen.</upd_refs>
