Description

Frustrated with ineffective cardio programs that fail to deliver? Do your programs fail to hit weight-loss goals or push athletes through plateaus? Blame it on the older standardized programming guidelines that we still use. Why use maximum heart rate-based programs when MHR offers no correlation to performance? Metabolism is as unique as a fingerprint, therefore cardio programs need to be equally unique. Learn how to use new cutting-edge metabolism-based programs for weight loss and performance based on individual metabolic markers.
