Change your Body Composition through Metabolic Analytics

Why is it that when you lose weight, you feel your face and legs lean up, but you still find yourself with that ring of chub around your belly?

Or when you gain weight, it always goes directly to your thighs?

It could be that your hormones aren’t balanced and it’s causing you to store fat in specific areas of your body.

 There might be a solution: It’s called Metabolic Analytics from Charles Poliquin.

Metabolic Analytics is essentially a way to target fat loss on a specific area of the body by addressing hormonal imbalances that are contributing to fat storage in particular places, like the gut or the thighs. An individualized hormonal approach to health and nutrition based on nearly four decades of research by world-renowned strength coach Charles Poliquin, metabolic analytics is also an incredibly accurate way to measure your body fat percentage.

Poliquin’s research suggests when you figure out a person’s hormonal, lifestyle and nutritional profile—including their nutritional deficits, needs and food sensitivities—you can then create a useful personalized solution to effectively change their body composition.  This is all part of your personal training sessions with your Coach for Life!

The full test includes a calliper test of your current body composition—essentially a pinch test that gives you your ratio of lean muscle to body fat—as well as an analysis of your sleep patterns, nutrition, digestion and exercise habits. Hormones are also addressed by looking at various hormones, including insulin and growth hormone, as well as your thyroid function.


Once the latter is determined, you’ll have a better idea of what foods and supplements your body requires to address your body’s needs, as well as your performance and body composition goals.
