MetaPWR (MetaPower) is a thirty minute circuit class that combines resistance and body weight exercises to target and develop strength, power, agility, and cardiovascular efficiency.
MetaPWR develops strength and power not from ‘traditional’ gym strength training, but by carefully selecting equipment that will offer both resistance and explosive/ballistic exercises. Combining this with plyometric and non-plyometric body weight exercises promotes muscle adaption and growth, heightens your metabolic rate, and helps burn body fat. The use of weighted equipment also helps with bone density.
Why Should You Do MetaPWR?
MetaPWR Uses Large Muscle Groups
“Compound exercises” are types of exercises that require a maximum amount of energy because multiple joints are involved like a Squat with a Press. Sitting down and doing a biceps curl is the exact opposite of hard core metabolic resistance training.
MetaPWR is High Intensity
MetaPWR is high-intensity anaerobic exercise that makes you breathless. If you are completing a MetaPWR workout and you are not breathing hard and sweating, something is wrong. Ideally, you should be lifting as heavy as you can and resting as little as possible between sets.
From a 1 to 10 scale, MetaPWR is around 6 to 8 in terms of metabolic intensity (Metafit 8 to 10). If you are doing very metabolic workouts all the time, your body may not be able to recover properly. Hence, the reason you shouldn’t do Metafit or MetaPWR every day.
MetaPWR Makes You Feel The Burn
MetaPWR should help create a burning sensation in your muscles as you are working out. So by your last rep of a given exercise, you should be feeling a burn in your muscles. While the depth of the muscle stimulation from MetaPWR is not as deep as a bodybuilding program where you hit one muscle the entire workout, it’s still significant.
MetaPWR burns calories
The calorie burn during a 30-minute MetaPWR workout is easily around 500 calories, but it also increases metabolic rate from anywhere between 10% to 25% for up to 24 hours, with some studies showing an increase in metabolic rate for up to even 72 hours with this type of training. This equates to hundreds of extra calories, which over the course of a few workouts can become significant.
MetaPWR works hand-in-hand with Metafit (our high intensity interval training (HIIT) program) because the added strength and power you develop will allow you to work harder at Metafit, which allows you to work harder at MetaPWR, which allows you to work harder at MetaPWR, (you get the picture). Imagine what that will do to the results you are trying to achieve!

METAFIT & METAPWR WILL IMPROVE:
- aerobic and anaerobic fitness
- cardiovascular health
- insulin sensitivity (which helps muscles to more readily use glucose for fuel to make energy)
- cholesterol profiles
- abdominal fat and body weight while maintaining muscle mass.
- Metafit training can easily be modified for people of all fitness levels and special conditions, such as overweight and diabetes.
- burn a lot of calories in a short period of time.
- increase metabolic rate for hours after the workout.
- help you lose fat.
- increase lean muscle mass.
- improve oxygen consumption.
- reduce blood sugar, heart rate and blood pressure.
