8 rounds of 20 seconds work and 10 seconds recovery. Named after person who created it in testing athletic performance of sprinters. The 20 seconds has got to be all out so it’s important to choose correct activity but only after assessing if your conditioning qualifies to to do something like this.
Aside from sprinting, I thing burpees are great for a quick 4-minute Tabata workout.

Most "tabata" classes use the actually tabata protocol which was used to measure VO2 max in elite atheletes. If they did, everyone would be entirely wasted after the 1st set.
Whatever they offer is some sort of interval training but it is almost certainly will be far less demanding than a true tabata routine. So, calling them "tabata" classes is a misnomer and gross misrepresentation.
