METCON Review

METCON goes past just being a great workout. Having the support of the coaches and being with great people is what METCON is all about.

Movement. Strength. Power. Endurance. These are the pieces that make up a well-rounded fitness program and a well-rounded human being. Each piece, just as important as the next, must be incorporated properly to ensure great results. Regardless of the goal, each piece is vital to success. Let’s define each one:

Movement – Quality range of motion through each joint and control of that range through muscular contraction and relaxation.

Strength – The ability to move load through a full range of motion. All daily activities require some form of strength.

Power – The ability to produce force quickly and efficiently to move fast. From jumping to throwing to preventing a fall, all of these are forms of power output.

Endurance – The ability to perform tasks without losing breath or becoming fatigued. Endurance is specific to the activity. For general purposes, endurance is a big part of the fat loss equation.

The Answer to Your Running Woes

The fat loss path has been set and nutrition has improved, strength training has started, and lifestyle has been set yet the progress needs to be quicker. What’s the answer? METCON. Metabolic conditioning is a form of endurance training that involves intervals instead of steady state, long-duration activities. Intervals use alternating periods of work and rest, causing the heart rate to jump between periods of high and low. The intensity of these types of workouts is much higher than that of continuous training however the rest periods give an individual time to recover. This type of training has been shown in research to be highly effective in fat loss as well as endurance improvements. METCON also incorporates movement training into the mix, creating a more well-rounded body. Full range movements such as squatting, rowing, pressing, pulling, as well as more “functional” movements like shuffling, crawling, and skipping create better movement at the joints and better balance across the body.

METCON classes are that missing piece to the fitness journey. While running may work for a while, the body will adapt and pain may set in. With METCON, the movements and sessions are constantly changing preventing staleness and improving results. The group setting also encourages people to push harder and have more fun. Each member is like a teammate cheering the others on to reach their goals.

Fulfill each piece of the fitness puzzle and results will be guaranteed physically, mentally, and aesthetically.

METCON focuses on getting the most work in, in the least amount of time possible. To ensure that we know you are getting the results you want we use the Polar H7 heart rate monitoring system. This is a heart rate strap that we can provide or you can bring your own.
Please call us at 502-275-0543 to get started. We will need to setup an initial appointment. Usually 15 minutes before a class is all that it takes.

METCON is held 6 days week.

Monday-Thursday class is at 7:00pm and Friday at 6:00.

Tues & Thurs we have an additional class at 5:30.

Saturday METCON is at 11:00am

No, the heart rate monitoring system is a perk not a requirement. We want to make sure you get the most out of every class so it is encouraged but not mandatory.
Each METCON class lasts 30min. we get you in and out and back to your life.
