Thai Pumpkin Soup

Curry is just one of those magical spices that I just can’t get enough of. Not only is it warm and bold, fragrant and sweet, it is actually a mixture of several different spices including lemongrass, red chili, garlic and ginger. Those ingredients combine together to have some pretty powerful health benefits. Most importantly? It’s role in reducing inflammation in the joints and improving overall blood circulation, which becomes pretty important when engaging in regular physical activity.

What Should I Eat After A Workout?

There’s a difference in post-workout refueling strategies. Learn the good and the bad.

Everyone knows that eating right, exercising correctly, and resting well are major keys to achieving results whether the aim is weight loss or fitness improvement. Not everyone strikes the right balance of them, however.

There’s a big crowd of people who exercise expressly so they can “get away with” certain dietary indiscretions. I’ve even justified junk food choices after big workouts from time to time, but is this a good approach?

Maybe, but perhaps not.

Is Adrenal Fatigue a Real Thing?

Have you been feeling more run down and exhausted? Not just the sleepy “I need a quick power nap” tired, but the kind of tired that makes you just dread your alarm clock and your to-do list? The kind of tired that makes day-to-day tasks literally drain every remaining ounce of energy out of you? The kind of tired that all but guarantees that you’ll come down with the sniffles and sore throat the minute you will yourself into a workout? If you answered “yes” to any of these, you’re not alone.

How to Burn More Fat Per Calorie

We are starting a new CardioBurn Program September 26th. This is a free program designed to teach you the secret formula that will help you burn more fat per calorie when you exercise.
But the benefits start right now, and you learn the secret formula immediately.

What You Will Learn When You Enter Your Email:
1.  The exact percentage of time you need to spend in an upper cardio zone and how much time you need to spend in a VERY relaxed zone where you are enjoying your workout. This is the formula.

2.  A sample 1 Page Workout that is designed to help you burn more fat per calorie, both immediately and over time. As you keep doing this type of workout, your percentage of fat burned will increase

3.  You will learn the 5 different heart rate zones, and what you feel like in each one. The reason this is important is that when you know what a certain zone "feels" like it is super easy to train in the right zone

4.  You will ALSO learn how to burn more fat per calorie during a STRENGTH workout

5.  As a bonus you will be sent recipe guides and meal plans that help support your exercise strategies to burn more fat. Certain foods literally program your metabolism to use fat as an energy source. When you use fat as your primary energy source, you lose weight more quickly and predictably

The two virtual classes will be held via phone on Monday September 26th and Monday October 3rd at 3pm CST.  We will send you the call information in the days leading up to the classes.  We will also be sending a replay link to everyone, so if you are unable to attend the phone call time, please still join the class!  By the start of the class you will already know the secret formula and will be putting it to work.

You also get direct access to Coach Dan, a national expert on Metabolic Training. What that means is any email you get from the program, just hit reply and Coach Dan will get you 100% on the right track where you are making consistent progress.

Once you've signed up, you'll receive a confirmation email.  If you've signed up and haven't received the confirmation email, please email

What Active Metabolic Assessment participants are saying:

I have been contemplating this assessment for several years, but the cost was always so high.  I finally reached the point that I am determined to lose weight no matter what.  After working out consistently (cardio& strength) for 4 weeks, I had lost nothing.  My trainer recommended this test to me.  I caved and FINALLY did it. I'm glad I did.  I learned so much and have been using my new workout plan.  I had never learned zone training before and I have finally started shedding some lbs.  Plus having a pre-planned workout really helps me.  I usually only do what's "comfortable" and never really push myself.  I also bought a Vivofit and heart rate strap.  I finally feel good about what I accomplish at the gym and I’ve lost 9 pounds in 3 weeks.  I've belonged to many gyms in the past and this is by far my favorite.  The best part about going to the gym is feeling welcome and being encouraged.

--Member at Coon Rapids Life Time

Matt did a great job.  He explained things as we went along.  He watched me carefully as I did the test and stopped it when I maxed out.  He was very encouraging and made me feel I can do this.  He took a lot of time and explained all the printouts to me and has checked on me when I have gone to do the program.  Very impressed!!

--Member at Collierville Life Time

 A very worthwhile experience, discovered range best for me to burn fat, have lost 9 lbs to date.  Craig very professional, patient, answered all my questions.

--Member at Syosset Life Time

I was impressed with the process, test, results and plan of attack.  I think the biggest challenge with these tests is truly articulating what the results are going to provide.  I think the cost may have a bit of sticker shock and it may be difficult to translate that to what you get out of it. For me, I got much more than I was expecting, although I was super hesitant to spend the money (I did the 2-session package).  I have lost 15 pounds so far and I feel great so I’m glad I did it!  Steven was great and I would highly recommend him and the process to anyone.

UCAN Eat a Cookie

As an avid exerciser, I am always trying to tweak my fueling strategies.  I’ve tried all sorts of gels and performance supplements, but I’ve found that using whole food recipes for support helps sustain my fuel needs the best.
