MetaFit Group Training 2018

Southampton Common Spring/Summer 2018

Sessions are at 5.45pm Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

Fat burning, fitness and strength building workouts - all up to 45 minutes long. Using a mixture of resistance and cardiovascular exercise - with stretching and flexibility to finish.

Although each workout should be challenging, you should take it at your own pace, having fun with it is the most important thing!

You will learn correct technique - there are no mirrors on the common so this is more challenging than in the gym - but I will of course help you with this.

You will need a water bottle, a mat (or towel) and some hand weights (weight of your choice), as you progress you may need to buy more weights - but all can be done without weights if necessary, oh and bug repellent (lots of it)!

All the sessions are varied and fun. Laura prepares really well and puts a lot of effort into keeping things interesting. She is professional, encouraging and helpful. I have attended many different classes over the years and Laura's are by far the best in terms of organisation, variety & ongoing support. They are paced really well and are challenging without being overwhelming. Anon - 2014/15/16/17/18
"My experience of attending Laura's sessions has been 100% positive.
The sessions are just the right length, in great settings (especially the spring/summer outdoor ones), and perfectly pitched for our needs.
She gets the balance just right in terms of degree of difficulty. I also really like the way she teaches. She is encouraging but does not shout or bully. 
She is also very knowledgable and gives us a wealth of information on fitness, diet, muscle health etc.
After a few weeks I started to notice new muscle definition and improved strength and stamina.
I would thoroughly recommend Laura to anyone wishing to get fit, to improve their muscle tone or to lose weight.

"I started the early morning metobolic training sessions about 6 weeks ago and would probably always go now. It's hard getting up early in the mornings (especially with young children that don't sleep) but once I'm up and out, it sets me up for the day and I feel more awake than if I had slept in! I feel so much more motivated to do things for the rest of the day, I've started sleeping better at night and have started to lose a few pounds week by week as well as gained muscle. The training itself isn't too strenuous but really gets a sweat on and gets you going with the short spouts of exercises. The music is good and lively and there is a good variety of exercises each time. Overall, a great way to train with a great trainer!!!"

About Metabolic Training

Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) - metabolic training (high intensity circuits – short rests) induces an “oxygen debt,” this can increase your metabolic rate for up to 36 hours after you train. This means that when you’re done working out—while you’re at home, at work, or sleeping—your body is still looking to consume fuel sources for the oxygen it needs to restore itself to a resting state of balance.
The good news is that it does this primarily by depleting fat stores.
Although you still need some steady-state cardio in your life to enhance recovery, when it comes to shedding excess body fat, nothing works like circuit training to manipulate the speed at which your metabolism burns.  You still get a good cardiovascular workout too!
Research has shown that the EPOC effect increases along with the intensity level of the type of exercise you’re performing. So, while you may burn more calories during a low-impact 45-minute jogging session, you’ll affect your metabolic rate in a far more profound way if you throw in two or three short-yet-intense metabolic circuits per week.
