Small Group Training

At personalbest Kenmore;

we currently run small group training sessions every week at various times called ‘metcon’ In these metcon classes all the clients wear a H7 heart rate sensor, (which we supply) in which they will see their live heart rates on screen.

With this you will learn about the five heart rate zones and how important it is to exercise at different heart rate intensities – it’s the best way to improve.          These ‘metcon’ classes are designed specifically for maximising your calorie output in the shortest amount of time (Metabolic Training)

So what is Metabolic Training? In short, metabolic training is completing structural and compound exercises with little rest in between exercises in an effort to maximize calorie burn and increase metabolic rate during and after the workout. FYI, your metabolism (aka metabolic rate) is how many calories your body burns at rest.

While calorie burn studies come to different conclusions as to the total calorie burn of metabolic training, it certainly burns a ton of calories. The calorie burn during a workout is easily around 500 calories for a 30 minute workout, but it also increases metabolic rate from anywhere between 10% to 25% for up to 48 hours, with some studies showing an increase in metabolic rate for up to even 72 hours. This equates to hundreds of extra calories, which over the course of a few workouts can become significant.

So if you’re interested in more information about our metcon classes and want to burn some serious calories, please give us a call on 0733785005 or visit our website:
