NBC Interview with CEO Robert Forster, PT
The Fit But Fat Syndrome is a result of ill advised training programs dictated by whim and not science, reliance on sports bars and drinks, working harder and harder, not smarter, too many intense workouts creating a metabolism dependent on carbohydrates not fats, inadequate base training, and calorie restriction causing your metabolism to idle.
PHASE IV Scientific Health and Performance Center in Santa Monica has had over 35 years training some of the world’s best athletes in a variety of sports. Every program at PHASE IV is based in science and personalization and focuses on optimizing one’s metabolism. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking to PR on your next race, lose 20 lbs or just improve your overall health. Everyone needs a healthy metabolism to manage their weight.
To achieve your ideal performance and body weight and unlock the mysteries of your personal physiology, yo must re-engineer your sports nutrition so it is working for you not against you, and optimize your fat burning potential with heart rate specific exercise intensities. With the perfect balance of metabolic training and recovery, your body will learn to burn fat all day long.
Finally, through metabolic testing we determine the exact calories needed to fuel your workouts and lifestyle while managing your weight. The calories you burn during workouts are inconsequential to your overall body weight or body fat content! Instead, it is how well you use your exercise time to reprogram your daily physiology that matters.
The “Fit But Fat” Syndrome is attributable to improper training schedules and heart rate intensities that reek hormonal havoc! How hard you train, when you train, and how you schedule your workouts, all effect the production of stress hormones. Use the value of targeted heart rate training, proper nutrition, and strength training to conquer the “Fit But Fat” Syndrome!
