Give me any persons Maximum MET’s (Vo2 max)
along with their basic body stats (weight)
and I will tell you without ever meeting them

What speed they can walk and run and how long they are likely to be able to keep it up for

  • How long it will take them to cover any distance
  • How many calories they will burn doing any activity
  • What speed and incline to set the treadmill at to exercise them at any intensity
  • What sports they are fit enough for and what they would not be capable of performing well in (i.e. if they play singles tennis, is their level of fitness going to get in the way of their ability to perform) sport has two factors, skill and fitness ability.
  • What speeds and watts (intensity) would be suitable for them when cycling
  • Create a full 5 zone training guideline for them
  • Tell you what intensity they are likely to become anaerobic
  • Create a suitable energy balance programme using energy equation tactics

 

Step One: Vo2 Testing (their maximum volume of oxygen uptake –  ml.kg.min) and her bodyweight

Step Two: I will then use a combination of the following depending on what you need to know:

  • METs
  • WATTs
  • KCALS
  • Heart Rate Zones
  • A Series of Advanced Scientific Metabolic Calculations

I can teach you how you can do the same!

Lets Look at One Example:

You carry out a Vo2 sub max walk test on your client and you find her Vo2 Max is 35 ml.kg.min, She weighs 220 lbs (100 kgs)

Just from knowing this little piece of information – Can You Tell Me..

  • Her maximum amount of calories she can burn per minute ?
  • If I exercise her at just 50% of her maximum ability she how many calories will she burn for each minute of exercise ?
  • What are her total calories she can burn at 50% of her maximum if she exercises for 30 minutes at this level ?
  • What is her current fitness level ?
  • Is she fit enough to do slow jogging as a workout? If so, for how long ?
  • What exercise % (intensity) will she be working with a brisk walking programme at 4mph ?
  • Is she fit enough to jog at a slow pace of 6 mph.

At a walking pace of 4 mph she will burn ___ calories and cover a distance of ___ miles in 30 minutes and progressing to a speed of 5 mph she will burn 280 calories and cover 2.5 miles in the same 30 minutes.

Would you like to have this kind of power in your exercise prescription?

Well, I got you covered.

To achieve this you basically have 2 Choices:

THE EASY WAY..

I will provide you a bunch of cheat forms included in our Metabolic Expert Membership Site, where you can determine all kinds of data about your client at the touch of a button and produce impressive scientifically based exercise programmes by knowing their maximum METs.

This way, you will not need to know any calculations, simply have the ability to perform any number of fitness tests that determine Vo2 Max either sub maximal testing and predict V02 or max testing for healthy individuals to get an even more accurate picture of their energy parameters. I will teach you how to perform such a test on yourself and your clients. This is all provided for you in the Membership Route.

THE METABOLIC SPECIALIST WAY ..

Begin a study of metabolics and metabolic calculations so you can perform these calculations for yourself and create all the ‘things’ I have been talking about being able to do for yourself. This level requires some basic mathematics (which I will walk you through) and knowledge of basic exercise physiology.

We will begin your preparation with some introductory courses on metabolics to help you get started without the need to understand the advanced scientific calculations that go behind being able to provide these metabolic equations.

This information will be an essential and invaluable part of any health and fitness professional wishing to understand how to provide accurate and totally individual metabolic programming. This course will teach you how to do this.

Apply Exercise Physiology – the missing link in today’s trends in fitness training.
If you don’t use this, you are using guess work – plain and simple!
And, your results will always be hit and miss and totally unpredictable.

Get the additional knowledge you have been missing up to now to fully integrate metabolic training into your existing fitness applications. Do not ignore exercise physiology just because you think you do not understand how to use it, it is the physiological application you have been guessing up to now.

If you are great at functional and structural training applications but not so confident with metabolics – this is for you. If your fitness qualification was primarily designed by physiotherapists – add metabolic science today and round off your knowledge of advanced Vo2 applications using metabolic formula’s.

It is a fact that most Personal Trainer Schools, Physiotherapist, Chiropractitioners and Doctors are not fully trained in metabolic physiology as it relates to Exercise.

Without an understanding of this science, you must rely on guess work and generic advice instead of applying the same in depth approach to exercise prescription and training the body inside (physiologically) as you have been taught to train the body outside (mechanically).

I understand why many health professional have shy’d away from Vo2, METs and Metabolic Formulas. They hear about it in their basic exercise physiology and they sometimes learn a couple of ways to test it but then they haven’t a clue what to actually do with this information beyond giving someone a fitness score.

If this is you, here is what you are missing out on:

How Would You Like To Know ALL The Following about Your Clients – Just From One Statistic (even without ever meeting them):

  • What speed they can walk and run and how long they are likely to be able to keep it up for
  • How long it will take them to cover any distance
  • How many calories they will individually burn doing any activity
  • What speed and incline to prescribe to set the treadmill to exercise them at any intensity
  • What sports they are fit enough for and what they would not be capable of performing well in (i.e.if they play singles tennis, is their level of fitness going to get in the way of their ability to perform) sport has two factors, skill and fitness ability.
  • What speeds and watts (intensity) would be suitable for them when cycling
  • Create a full 5 zone heart rate training guideline for them
  • Tell you what intensity they are likely to become anaerobic
  • Create a suitable energy balance programme using energy equation tactics

You Don’t have to leave it all to guess work and generic guidelines, give yourself and your clients what they deserve…

Here are the answers to the quiz above:

Just from knowing this little piece of information I can tell you..

Her maximum amount of calories she can burn per minute is 17.5 kcals per minute.

If I exercise her at just 50% of her maximum ability she will sustain just under 9 calories (8.75) for each minute of exercise.

She exercises for 30 minutes at this level she will have burned 262 calories.

Her fitness capacity is average and her V02 Max tells me she is not fit enough to run.

Even at a slow running speed of 6 mph this would require all of her energy conversion ability as being able to run you need some reserve and she has none !

A walking programme even at the fastest speed of 4mph would use less than 40% of her ability so she could certainly engage in a brisk walking programme.

However I would probably want her to combine a walking with what I call a tabbing session which will gradually give the ability to become fit enough to jog at the 6 mph.

To achieve the 50% intensity target during a session, I would put her on a progressive tabbing programme whereby she started out with a target of consistently covering 2 miles in 30 mins (this will be fairly comfortable for her given her V02 Max, and a good starting point to get her out exercising consistently)I would set the programme to increase her distance to 2.5 miles over a 4-6 week period based on feedback.

This would mean she was exercising at a speed of between 4 and 5 miles per hour,
at an intensity of between 40 and 70% of her ability.

She will burn 170 calories at 2 miles in 30 minutes and progressing to 280 calories at 2.5 miles in the same 30 minutes.

To finish off, I would of course round off her program with mechanical and structural training.

All this JUST from knowing her Maximum MET Level !!!!!

You Don’t have to leave it all to guess work and generic guidelines,
give yourself and your clients what they deserve…
