Exercise for Weight Loss
Metabolic efficiency and aerobic base training are very closely linked. Together they lay the foundation for better health, fitness and performance. Metabolic efficiency (ME) refers to balanced utilization of fat and carbohydrate to fuel the body while at rest and during exercise. Simply put, burn more fat and spare precious stores of carbohydrate. This balance is dependent on how well the body’s aerobic energy system functions.
Given this link, metabolic efficiency training is a more refined way to get lean, prescribe aerobic intensities, and to measure the corresponding adaptations.
Heart rate monitoring is a vital component to applying the metabolic efficiency zone prescribed from your test, therefore, we strongly recommend using a heart rate monitor during this phase of training.
Make an appointment today for a metabolic efficiency test to get the most out of this training phase. This test will provide the analysis of when you are burning the most fat as your primary fuel source. Ask us for further details.
Functional Movement Patterns
Functional movement is the key to normal function. By screening these patterns, our program readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These issues are seen with poor posture, repetitive daily movements, painful movement and injuries.
These are issues that can hinder the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.
We can help you establish the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns. We have put together a system to help each individual improve their movement patterns. These exercises or movements are fundamental and are easy to implement.
If you already have a strength and movement routine, that’s fantastic! This will be an easy way to enhance what you are already doing.
