“If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done.”
This quote certainly holds true when it comes to achieving your fitness goals. If you’re ready to truly change your body, it’s time to step out of your comfort zone and find out exactly what you’re made of. The metabolic conditioning training at Steel Fitness, also known as MetCon, is the perfect way to do just that. Led by our personal trainers Cisco and Nick, these fun and challenging group classes will help you push yourself to achieve things you never thought were possible.
What is Metabolic Conditioning?
If you’ve never heard of metabolic conditioning, you’re not alone. Although the term is hot among trainers and fitness experts, there’s a good chance that you’ve already been incorporating it into some of your workouts without knowing what it was called. In simple terms, metabolic conditioning is a high-intensity form of workout designed to create maximum calorie burn.
The most common form of MetCon involves high-intensity circuit workouts. This style of workout uses compound exercises that challenge your entire body. The workouts keep your calorie burn up by minimizing rest periods between exercises.
By stressing your body, these workouts encourage continued calorie burn during the recovery period. As such, you can expect to continue enjoying the benefits of your workout for several hours after you’ve finished.
Benefits of Metabolic Conditioning
Metabolic conditioning is often referred to as the key to improving athletic performance. This style of exercise also improves your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and endurance.
MetCon training alters the composition of your body, turning it into a serious fat burning machine. Perhaps best of all, pushing yourself to the limit and succeeding creates a real sense of accomplishment. Regular participants in MetCon classes often experience higher self-confidence both in and out of the gym.
What to Expect During MetCon Classes at Steel Fitness
The MetCon classes at Steel Fitness are held outdoors and feature a 17-station high-intensity circuit. These hour-long classes are designed to ensure that you break a serious sweat and feel the burn. The group setting is perfect for both beginners and seasoned fitness fanatics.
While the trainers are there to ensure proper form and encourage you to keep going, it’s the other members of the class who will truly inspire you. It’s common for classmates to motivate and challenge each other, constantly pushing themselves to reach new heights. Once you’ve experienced your first class, we guarantee you’ll be hooked.
