Metafit is a style of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and is designed to boost your fitness, rocket your energy levels & get massive results in the shortest amount of time possible.
Created by a former Royal Marine Commando over 10 years ago, Metafit is the group fitness, HIIT workout. It's 30 minute, bodyweight only workouts that set the metabolism on fire.
Metafit works! its tough, but its meant to be. It gets results because it…
Creates a Metabolic Disturbance
Increases your Resting Metabolic Rate
Increases Fat Burning
Works your major muscle groups functionally: mimic’s everyday movements
Depletes glycogen stores
Bodyweight training system
Time efficient: 30 minutes high intensity class
Whole body workout
Why 30 Minutes?
HIIT is short bursts of maximum exertion, if it lasts an hour it’s not HIIT. With Meta Fit it’s quality not quantity. Classes that last an hour are based around endurance & aerobic training (cardio)
Using more than one joint at a time. The exercises are designed to be functional and mimic everyday movements and muscles are built in symmetry preventing imbalances. Using lots of muscles at once will burn more calories, therefore is more efficient and effective.
Core & Abs
Metafit is loaded with core exercises. Unlike situps which work one particular muscle group in your abs, Metafit will work all the muscles in your abs, your lower back, shoulders and glutes at the same time. So be done with those out of date, time wasting, back breaking, ineffective situps.
Everyone works at their own ability and pace. One can be doing the advanced option, going faster/deeper/higher while the other can be doing the easier exercise variation and slow it down. They both would still be working at their maximal effort because everyone’s maximal is different.
The Science Behind Metafit
It is not perfomed in the ‘fat burning zone’, it is designed to deplete glycogen stores in muscles to maximise Excess Post Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) to burn fat after the session (during recovery).
You will not burn fat during your session, this happens in the after burn
You will increase your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) and preserve muscle mass which is the single most effective way of burning fat.
‘Fat Burning Zone’ training vs High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
Fat Burning Zone
30 min workout = 300kcal
30 min workout = 300kcal
Afterburn = less than 150kcal
Afterburn = up to 500kcal
Results from same subject measuring calorie output for 10 hrs after workout
Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)
RMR accounts for 65 – 75% of calories burned throughout the day
The majority of calories are stored as fat and used at rest
Increasing your RMR is the best way to increase your fat burning potential
After a Metafit workout, your RMR will remain elevated for a minimum of 24 hours (the after burn)
What Happens to Your Body in the After Burn?
After a High Intensity Workout, the body must:
Regulate body temperature
Return cardiovascular and respiratory systems to rest
Replenish glycogen stores in muscles
Begin protein synthesis and use hormones to return body to an anabolic state
Return body to homeostasis
The Role of Lean Muscle in RMR
1/2kg of lean muscle requires 50 calories per day to maintain
Increasing lean muscle mass increases calorie output and metabolism
People lose 2 – 4% of their lean muscle mass every 10 years after the age of 25 and as a result their metabolism slows down by 5% every 10 years
