Metabolic Effect Advance

Exercise and Nutrition

The Metabolic Effect program will offer Metabolic Effect Advance along with the Advance Spark Conditioning Up- Chain Workouts!

Your metabolism is not a great multitasker. This is usually true when it comes to building muscle and burning fat. To burn fat you need a caloric deficit along with a hormonally primed metabolism. To build muscle, you need a caloric EXCESS and hormonally primed metabolism for muscle growth. 

So, how can you create a caloric deficit and hormonal approach for fat loss and at the same time generate a hormonal and caloric approach for muscle gain? You can’t, unless you cycle the diet. Sign up today!

This program is more advanced than Metabolic Effect. If you’re needing a more beginner program, try Metabolic Effect.

Program Dates

September 9-October 16

AM Session Tuesday/Thursday 10:30-11:30am

PM Session Monday/Thursday 7:00-8:00pm

Metabolic Effect

Exercise and Nutrition

This rest-based training allows you to generate the correct intensity necessary to turn on fat burning, long after the workout is over. The push-until-you-have-to-rest format allows each participant to benefit from the latest fat-burning research. Hybrid exercises combine upper and lower body movements and simultaneously tax the aerobic and anaerobic systems. The ME Workout uses these exercises exclusively because they have been shown to almost double the amount of calories burned in a workout. You will get specific nutrition information each session. 

Want to know how to start being the detective and stop the dieter? Along with the Sparks Workouts, you will be getting your HEC (hunger, energy, and cravings) in check for YOUR own fat loss regimen? Push Til You Can’t, Rest Til You Can!

This program is geared more towards the beginner. If you are needing a more advanced program, try Metabolic Effect Advance.

Journey To Freedom

Making Positive Life Changes

Is there anything in your life that you would like to change? Most of us have tried to make changes in our lives and have failed. Change is not impossible. Like most things in life that are worthwhile, change requires practice, training, and a solid foundation.

Journey to Freedom can provide the support you need to change your life for the better. This healing community of 8-10 people also experiencing change can help you work through changes both large and small. Journey to Freedom can help you experience lasting change and a better life.

It combines small group classes with health and well-being services to give you the best of both worlds, focusing on the whole you – spirit, mind and body while you work your specific needs and goals. Past participants have been able to address challenges related to their relationships and family dynamics, careers, weight/food/body image issues, grief/loss, anxiety and so much more.
