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.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I had recently been experiencing loss of power and strength on my bike and was recommended to Chappy Wood, D.C. by other cyclists. I had been to other doctors but they were unable to fix my particular problem. He was able to target my problem areas using the cold laser treatment. After every visit I feel I have really addressed the problems I have come in for, and I would highly recommend him if you’re not getting results with other forms of treatment."

  • "Dr. Chappy Wood, D.C. has been an essential part of my training and recovery process as a professional cyclist. Training here in Marin is hard on my body, and he is able to fix all my nagging problems that cycling has caused on my body. Being a cyclist himself has really helped him to understand my specific needs. If you are a cyclist with any type of injury or any problem or pain associated with cycling then he is the man to see."
