New Leaf Metabolic Training

The Science of Fat Loss

The New Leaf Metabolic Training system implements state-of-the-art technology that precisely measures an individual's metabolic functions. New Leaf, powered by Medgraphics, utilizes gas exchange technology that measures the client's minute ventilation (VE, aka: ventalation rate), oxygen consumption (VO2), and carbon dioxide production (VCO2). Combined, these markers accurately indicate caloric consumption, and fat and carbohydrate metabolism.

New Leaf Metabolic Training implements the same tried and true method that has been used as a gold standard for the assessment of elite athletes for years, and now available to the general public at a fraction of the cost. However, you do not need to be an athlete to benefit from Metabolic Assessments; determining individual metabolic efficiency and function is critical and beneficial to anyone that is interested in fat loss and muscle development.

How it Works

Two essential Metabolic Assessments are available: Resting and Exercise.

During the Resting Metabolic Assessment, clients sit in a comfortable position and breath normally through New Leaf’s patented face mask for 15-20 minutes. Minute ventilation (VE), oxygen consumption (VO2) and carbon dioxide production (VCO2) are measured to determine resting metabolic rate (RMR), fat utilization, and carbohydrate utilization at rest. Once the Resting Metabolic Assessment is completed, clients will receive an Resting Metabolic Rate Report that illustrates:

·         How many fat calories their body burns on a day to day basis.

·         Minimum daily caloric intake that their body needs to sustain a strong metabolism.

·         The amount of pounds they can safely loose per week without compromising metabolic efficiency.

During the Exercise Metabolic Assessment, clients will perform a specific exercise protocol on a cardio machine. The exercise protocol is matched to the specific level of fitness of the client, providing a gradual rise in exercise intensity and heart rate over the duration of the test. While wearing the face mask, clients are required to push themselves toward Anaerobic Threshold (AT) and encouraged to perform an all out maximum intensity to record their peak VO2 (closest approximation to VO2Max without requiring clients to pass out/fall off machine). Once the Exercise Metabolic Assessment is completed, clients will receive a Exercise Metabolic Rate Report that illustrates:

Fat utilization curve that corresponds to the entire assessment.

Aerobic Base (AB): the corresponding heart rate whereby your body is burning 50:50 fat/carbohydrate as fuel for exercise.

Anaerobic Threshold (AT): the corresponding heart rate threshold whereby fat utilization significantly decreases and carbohydrate utilization significantly increases due to the shift to anaerobic metabolism.


The Advantage of Metabolic Training

There is a lot of debate as to which exercise modalities will produce the most significant changes in body fat. With regards to cardio, advocates claim that low intensity steady state is best, while others claim high intensity intervals is superior. Anyone can make claims, but can they back it up with scientific data? That’s where New Leaf Metabolic Training takes the lead.

Metabolic Training takes the guess work out of your workouts. The methodology is simple: Perform strength training workouts to build muscle and enhance resting metabolic rate. Do specific cardio workouts (a combination of various steady state and interval work – specific to your Exercise Metabolic Assessment) to train your muscle to increase oxygen consumption (VO2). The more oxygen your muscle cells can utilize, the more fat can be oxidized.

Combined, this training methodology will increase your overall resting metabolic rate, percentage of fat utilized at rest and during cardio workouts, as well as improving anaerobic threshold and Peak VO2.

New Leaf Metabolic Training is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Satisfaction Guarantee is qualified for clients that strictly adhere to the following:

·         Precisely follow their cardio workout prescription.

·         Make the necessary adjustments to their nutrition to accommodate the needs of their resting metabolic rate.

 ·      Re-assess to track and record actual changes in metabolic efficiency.
