metafit Group Classes
Live Right Personal Training offers metafit™ Group Classes.
metafit is a style of HIIT – high intensity interval training.
It is designed to boost your fitness, rocket your energy levels & get massive results in the shortest amount of time possible.
This type of training involves cycles of short-burst high-intensity activity interspersed by recovery that aims to improve aerobic fitness.
Because intensity is high, the duration of the session is short – any longer than 30 minutes and it’s not a HIIT workout.
It gets results because it… creates a Metabolic Disturbance, Increases your Resting Metabolic Rate and Increases Fat Burning.
What fitness level do I need to do a metafit session ?
Any level of fitness can do a metafit session as the exercises performed can be regressed or progressed to suit all fitness levels and abilities. Everyone is different and has their own strengths and weaknesses – you work to your maximum and the metafit coach will ensure you are doing the exercise at a level that is appropriate for you.
What about coordination – how is metafit different?
Metafit is un-choreographed, its not a dance or aerobics class. It is a selection of bodyweight exercises (think old-school exercises such as push-ups, squats, burpees, etc) done to great music with voice commands.
Your metafit™ coach will instruct correct technique for each exercise and assist you with maintaining correct form.
How many times a week should I do a metafit session?
A growing body of research has found that completing 3 metafit sessions per week has the same or superior health and fitness benefits compared to continuous aerobic exercise. In comparison, the public health recommendation for continuous moderate aerobic exercise is at least 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week.
What about metafit and training for a 10Km run?
Will metafit help or hinder preparing for this event?
Definitely help. Reviews have found that adding HIIT such as metafit alongside your aerobic training (running, riding, swimming) improves aerobic fitness. In addition, the regular completion of bodyweight exercises improves leg, upper body and core strength, which further enhances your running ability.
What about clothing or equipment?
Nothing specific is required, a water bottle, workout towel and an exercise mat will make your experience a little more comfortable. Please wear good supportive footwear (cross trainers or running shoes are ideal) and exercise or training clothing that is breathable and provides support in all the right places!
Can I bring my child(ren)?
Yes. Metafit isn’t designed for young children (but this may be coming soon), you are welcome to bring your children with you and they can watch whilst you workout. Children over 15 are welcome to participate with the approval of a parent/guardian over 18 years of age.
I have a group of friends/colleagues interested in metafit.
Can we start our own group?
Yes. Please contact me.
