THINKING ABOUT TRYING METAFIT
Metafit Client FAQ’s
What is HIIT?
HIIT is an acronym for High Intensity Interval Training – this type of training involves intervals 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. Metafit™ workouts are based on the HIIT principle that results in an efficient and effective form of exercise.
Do I need to be fit to do a metafit session?
No. The exercises performed in a metafit session 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.
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.
Is it really just 30 minutes?
Yes. All metafit™ sessions include a dynamic mobilisation warm-up, the main metafit™ set – depending upon the workout selected can last between 17-23 minutes.
How many times a week should I do a metafit™ session?
A growing body of research has found that completing 3 metafit™ or any HIIT 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.
I’m training for a 10km fun 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 outcomes over and above what aerobic training alone can do. In addition, the regular completion of bodyweight exercises improves leg, upper body and core strength, which further enhances your running ability.
Do I need any special equipment or clothing?
No, but 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)?
Please check with the ZET and instructor. Metafit™ is actually designed for any age and any ability since bodyweight exercises are safe for everyone providing they are performed using correct technique and under the supervision of a trained instructor/coach.
