Personal Fitness Programs
Metabolic rate is the speed at which the body expends energy. Knowing your personal metabolic rate while exercising and while resting is vital for weight loss and determining your proper caloric intake. The New LeafTM VO2 metabolic assessment system can accurately measure your metabolic profile and create an objective exercise plan specific to your individual physiology.
Tracking, managing, and updating your fitness efforts can help keep you committed to a fitness program. Seeing the improvements in your metabolism—your body learning to burn more fat for longer stretches of time, your improving heart rate, the increase in calories burned during exercise—is a great motivator.
The information that comes from your metabolic assessment is used to create a program of effective workouts that teach your body to burn fat efficiently. It means that when you exercise, you can take satisfaction in knowing that you’re burning fat—instead of just time.
The insights from your exercising metabolic assessment and profile are used to create a 12-week fitness program that will train your metabolism to perform at its highest level. Active metabolic training, ultimately, is the science-based secret to carrying less fat, building more muscle, and attaining your ultimate fitness goal.
Sometimes, we can all use a little help in the motivation department. Reassessing your metabolic profile every 12 weeks can help in so many ways. As you’re putting your assessment to use and working with your fitness tools—sticking with your exercise plan, monitoring the data from your heart rate monitor, eating what’s best for your body—you can feel the progress you’re making toward your fitness goal.
