Circuit Training: A type of training where exercises are performed in a continuous fashion going from one exercise to another (10 to 20) as quickly as possible in a circuit around the gym, keeping the pulse rate high. A rest period of two to five minutes is taken and then the circuit is repeated for a planned number of times. Although the first 'circuits' were performed on resistance machines any type of exercise, including calisthenics, done in this fashion can be considered circuit training. Typically, modern circuit training uses a combination of different modes of exercise including free weights, machines, body weight calisthenics, etc.
