Metafit is a system of high intensity interval training in short workouts, lasting around 30 minutes. The aim of the workout is to improve fitness, give you better energy levels and help you to see maximum results in a relatively short period of time.
There are a number of reasons why this workout is proving to be so popular and one of these is that it is great for losing weight and weight control. The exercise is able to create a metabolic disturbance so the resting metabolic rate is increased and the body will burn more fat as a result. This is a very effective training system and results can be achieved in as little as 30 minutes giving the whole body a workout.
High intensity interval training is based on short bursts of intense exercise. There is no need to be exercising for an hour or more like this because it is the quality of the exercise that matters rather than the quantity.
In most Metafit classes the moves are not choreographed. All those who are taking part will work at their own pace and to match their own ability. Each person is not required to move in sync with the others in the class. There are basic and advanced options to all movements. Remember that maximum effort is different for different people!
The system also makes use of compound movements so that more than one joint at a time is working. The movements involved in Metafit are designed to copy movements that you do every day. When you use more joints and muscles at the same time you are burning more calories and fat, therefore you notice the results much more quickly.
Metafit is designed to give your core a good workout, exercising all the muscles there. Your abs, shoulders, lower back and glutes will all be put through their paces, eliminating the need for ineffective sit-ups.
Metafit has designed to reduce the stores of glycogen in the muscles so that the EPOC (Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption) continues after the exercise has finished. The body burns fat after the exercise period is over rather than while the exercise is taking place but the resting metabolic rate is raised, so that when you are not exercising your body is still doing more to burn off excess fat. After your workout the body needs to replace the stores of glycogen in the muscles, regulate the body’s temperature and allow the respiratory and cardiovascular systems to return to a resting state.
This form of exercise can be daunting for those who have never tried it before but those who have consider it to be much more fun than longer workouts that do not produce the desired results for months. Many people start an exercise regime because they want to see results quickly and this is a style of exercise that can do just that.
