What is Metafit?

Metafit is non-choreographed, it's not a dance or aerobics class. It uses a selection of tried and tested bodyweight exercises such as push-ups, squats, burpees, etc, done to great music with voice commands (see video below). As your coach, I'll help you adopt the correct technique for each exercise and assist you with maintaining the correct form.

What is HIIT?

High Intensity Interval Training involves intervals of short-burst high-intensity activity interspersed by recovery that aims to improve aerobic fitness. Because intensity is high, the duration of the session is short (any longer than 30 minutes and it’s not a HIIT workout). Metafit™ workouts are based on the HIIT principle that results in an efficient and effective form of exercise. It's tough, that's why it works.

Do I need to be really fit to do a Metafit session?

The beauty of this workout is that the exercises performed in each session can be regressed or progressed to suit all fitness levels and abilities. Everyone is different and has their own strengths and weaknesses – you work to your maximum, whatever that is and I will ensure you are doing the exercise at a level that is appropriate for you. And, best of all, the fitter you get, the harder you can work out.

Is it really just 30 minutes?

Actually it's shorter! But because all metafit sessions include a dynamic mobilisation warm-up, we always allow 30 minutes for each session. The main metafit set, depending on the workout selected, will usually last between 17-23 minutes. It's the ideal workout to slot into a busy lifestyle!

How many times a week should I do a Metafit session?

Metafit HQ recommend no more than 3 times a week works best. We don't encourage any more often than that because this won’t give your muscles adequate time to recover or your body time to completely return to homeostasis. Quality not quantity every time! Read more >>


Regular Metafit workouts will make you fitter, stronger and leaner and will also take your energy levels through the roof.

  • It Only Takes 30 Minutes. No more excuses about not having time! Metafit is perfect for people with a busy schedule and if you can find 30 minutes in your day, you’ll be burning fat for fun and getting fit in no time.
  • It's tough but it's over and done with before you know it. Metafit involves short bursts of intense exercise, followed by short recovery periods. Do Metafit 3 times a week and watch yourself become fitter, leaner and stronger.
  • You will be burning fat for up to 24 hours after a Metafit session. Unlike low intensity cardio such as jogging, Metafit will have you burning calories for hours and hours after you have finished your workout. This is due to the afterburn effect EPOC (Excess post-exercise oxygen consumption). During this time your metabolic rate is boosted and your body continues to burn more calories and more fat. The more intense the workout, the greater the effects will be, so always aim to push yourself as hard as you can.
  • Metafit can be tailored to your fitness levels. Whether you’re 20 or 50, a solid Metafit session is all relative to your personal level of fitness. Your coach can adapt the exercises to suit you. The aim is to get your heart rate up to near maximal levels during the intense sets, before recovering during the short rest periods.
  • You will feel like an absolute winner afterwards. If you've worked yourself to your maximum during the workout, you will feel completely exhausted but elated afterwards. It's a great feeling, particularly when you can actively see your fitness levels improving week by week.
