Following a warm up to increase range of motion and muscle activation the main Metafit™ session (12 - 20 minutes) comprises set periods of work with set periods of rest.
Classes will be held in our Chancery Lane clinic on a Wednesday at 1pm.

Metafit™ classes in London from Central Health Physiotherapy
Metafit™ is a fast 30 minute metabolic workout using a combination of bodyweight only exercises working big muscle groups at high intensity intervals that will set your metabolic rate through the roof!! A short period of working to the MAX creates a metabolic effect in the body and sends your post workout recovery into overdrive, ultimately burning more fat!
If it feels easy, you ain’t working hard enough!
The objective in a nutshell:
- Improve your ability to move
- Maximize fat loss and improve fitness
- Do the above in the shortest possible time
The Metafit™ workouts aim to increase Resting Metabolic Rate (which accounts for the largest proportion of your energy used in a day).
The Metafit™ exercises incorporate many muscles groups, through all planes of movement and the intensity is near maximum hear rate. This leads to an increase in EPOC (Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption is the repayment of oxygen debt built up during exercise). The higher the EPOC, the harder the body has to work to return the body to resting state, burning more calories in the process.
After sustained, low intensity exercise half of the total EPOC is paid back in 30 seconds and total recovery can be made in a few minutes. With High Intesity Interval Training such as a Metafit™ class where blood lactate is increased, it may take 24 hours to re-establish pre-exercise oxygen uptake. During this time your resting metabolic rate and calorie burning is increased!
