Sustainable weight loss – You’ll not only lose weight, but you’ll end the yo-yo dieting cycle so that you keep the weight off permanently. Our long-term approach means that you’ll not only lose weight and get fitter and healthier, but you’ll also tackle the underlying causes of your past eating patterns and weight gain so they become a thing of the past.
We don’t believe in extreme calorie restriction, cutting food groups completely from your diet, depletion protocols that look to dehydrate you so you look good for about a day (the day of your photoshoot!) or training you to the point of injury or exhaustion. Instead we take a much more measured yet highly effective method that will yield fantastic results that are still visible months later.
A: The clinically-proven UltraShape procedure is the most widely used non-invasive solution for fat reduction and body contouring. It uses focused ultrasound to target and reduce unwanted localized fat deposits, reduce body circumference and improve body shape. The UltraShape procedure is intended to help average to modestly overweight men and women reduce localized fat deposits around the abdomen, flanks (love handles), hips and thighs. It offers a totally non-invasive, painless no downtime alternative to patients seeking reduced circumference (a slimmer body) and an improved body contour. UltraShape involves no incisions, needles, injections, recovery time or maintenance treatments whatsoever. UltraShape is an ideal non-surgical procedure that enables men and women to improve their figure, go down in clothing size, and improve the shape in problem fatty areas that regular diet and exercise usually don’t get rid of.
"My wedding day was fast approaching and I had been frustratingly unable to get to my target weight. Metabolic Balance was the thing that made the difference. It is a tough programme but it gets results. I felt fabulous on my wedding day, not just because I was happy with my weight but my skin was glowing and I had no bloating or puffiness that I had before"
The way we do this is through metabolic resistance training that is designed to increase lean muscle tissue (which is metabolically active). One of the biggest myths we hear is that women don’t want to ‘bulk up’ but the opposite will happen with this type of training. Muscle takes up less space than fat (per unit of weight) and so adding muscle will lead to a decrease in fat as metabolism is elevated. We also end each session with metabolic afterburner’s – exercises that are designed to keep metabolism elevated for 24-36 hours after each session.
I have helped numerous clients succeed in significant weight loss journeys that involve losses of over 20-30 kg in body fat over the space of 1-2 years or more. I actually find such longer term journeys more rewarding as they allow me to teach my clients about the impact of nutrition and lifestyle habits on their physiology. This not only helps them, but also helps those closest to them as well.
