The Movement Efficiency Training (M.E.T.) method is a revolutionary way of approaching fitness. M.E.T. combines an understanding of human evolution and neuroscience to work with the entire person, as opposed to previous exercise models that focus primarily on the musculoskeletal system. One of the most exciting things about this method is that anyone at any level of fitness can start immediately. From total beginners who have never worked out a day in their lives to pro athletes, M.E.T. offers endless regressions and progressions for each fundamental exercise. In addition to fundamental exercises, there are three zones and endless ways to combine exercises for a very effective, creative and fun workout.
Marcel, the founder of M.E.T. says, “85% of the word emotion is dedicated to movement.” M.E.T. also takes into account clients’ emotional involvement and attitude towards exercise. This allows clients to be in a mental and emotional state that desires to workout, rather than wanting to avoid it. They have fun! This also benefits the trainer/instructor (yes, YOGA TEACHERS can learn a lot from this as well!), as it will increase the longevity of your relationship with clients, due to their new level of emotional investment. Sound good? Well, there is an MET training in NYC this weekend and there are a few spots left!
To get a taste of what you will learn in the training, here is an article Marcel wrote about human evolution, exercise and the relationship with using hand-held tools in exercise.
The training is on the 17th of June. It will be held at Nimble Fitness (you can sign up here at Integrative Performance Institute). Kim-Lien, co-founder of SMARTer Bodies, will be there assisting on the training of the 17th, so you really have no reasons to miss this!
