What is Metabolic conditioning (MetCon)?

A set of conditioning exercises designed for the purpose of enhancing energy storage and delivery for any activity.  Metabolic Conditioning brings circuit training to a higher level. The beauty of this style of training is that it is designed to provide a faster more efficient way to produce desired results without sacrificing any of the quality.


Metabolic Conditioning improves your athletic performance as it gets you fit fast. This is because it is a physical exercise that increases your body’s ability to transport oxygen from the lungs to your cells and then use this to generate the energy needed to move your muscles. PLUS there is an increase of caloric burn even after the workout is finished. Such a high intensity during the session increases EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption) and leads to a higher resting metabolism for the next few hours.

Is it for you?

Metabolic Conditioning gives an athlete the ability increase performance directly. If an athlete primarily uses the anaerobic glycolytic (system then they are able to tailor a specific workout to meet the needs of the Phosphocreatine and the Anaerobic Glycolytic systems (speed and explosive sports) by decreasing rest intervals and integrating more power movements. This provides the ideal specificity and functional strength required to increase performance and excel on the field/ pitch/ court etc!

Therefore, if you are a netballer, footballer, basketballer, rugby player, volleyball player, sprinter etc. Then Metabolic Conditioning sessions could supplement your training programme!
