What is Metafit
Metafit® is a tough 30-minute high-intensity interval training class that keeps working your metabolism for up to 24 hours after you’ve finished. With Metafit® HIIT you use your own bodyweight to exercise for intense effort periods ranging from 5 seconds to 5 minutes long at 90 percent of your heart’s maximal rate, followed by varied recovery times at 45 percent. These work and relief periods are alternated for around 20 to 30 minutes. Created by a former UK Royal Marine Commando, Metafit® burns fat like no other exercise!
Five Key Benefits of Metafit
1 IT SAVES TIME
In fact just 10 minutes can burn more calories than a 30-minute treadmill session. If you are super busy or need to get fit fast for a special occasion then Metafit® is the most efficient workout for you. According to a 2011 study presented at the American College of Sports Medicine Annual Meeting, just 2 weeks of high-intensity interval training improves your aerobic capacity by as much as six to eight weeks of endurance training.
2 BURNS MORE CALORIES
The workout itself is a calorie buster but it’s still working long after you’ve finished. 24 hours after a short Metafit® workout your body has burned more fat and calories than if you had gone for a long run. The concentrated bursts of energy exerted during the class sparks the repair cycle in your body.
3 RETAINS MUSCLE
Metafit® workouts are different from steady cardiovascular exercise like running or treadmill because they preserve muscle by concentrating weight loss on fat stores. That’s great news for dieters who, in the past, may have seen a loss in muscle mass together with fat through cardio programs.
4 A STRONG HEART
A report in the Journal of Physiology says Metafit®-style HIIT workouts can quickly make the heart stronger, citing the case of cyclists who, after just two months of HIIT, were able to keep up the same pace for twice the distance. This is because Metafit® pushes the body into the anaerobic zone, which makes you feel like you can’t breathe and your heart is trying to escape your body, but is actually very good for you!
5 SLOWS AGEING
According to the Journal of Sports Science HIIT programs like Metafit® work to trigger human growth hormone (HGH) production by as much as 450 percent for 24 hours post-workout. HGH is a key factor in decelerating our ageing, and is also vital for increasing the rate at which your body burns calories.
