Metabolic Aftershock is a new program from Dr Jade Teta that claims to have you boosting your metabolism with just 45 seconds of activity (yes, seconds, not minutes!). In this Metabolic Aftershock review, we’ll look at these claims and whether they seem to be justified.
What is the Metabolic Aftershock program?Metabolic Aftershock is a system of quick and intense exercise with rests between, designed to boost your metabolism and help you lose fat fast. It’s been developed by Dr Jade Teta, an integrative physician who runs a metabolic clinic in North Carolina.
For women, I recommend Jade’s new program, Metabolic Renewal – see a review here.
Dr Teta says you’ll see results quickly, and you don’t have to struggle for them. Each exercise lasts just 45 seconds and the total workout time is 15 minutes, so you can easily fit it into your day, however busy you are.
You don’t need any equipment and you don’t have to join a gym.
You’ll get a full set of videos of different, short workouts that you can do, and none of them require special equipment. You can select either instant download or DVDs shipped to your home. So you can do your 15 minute workout any time, any place.
You don’t even have to do it every day – just three times a week is enough, according to Dr Teta. It’s a question of knowing exactly how to work the muscles at maximum intensity for minimum effort. And with this level of intensity, your metabolism needs to rest between sessions. In fact, most of the fat burning effect happens after a workout, not during.
Dr Teta even found that the more a person rests during an intense workout, the MORE fat they burn.
So let’s ask the big question…
Does Metabolic Aftershock work?
Metabolic Aftershock certainly should work, because it’s been developed from clinical results. Jade Teta found what works for his clinical clients, and designed this program to bring the same results to a wider public. This isn’t one of those programs that tell you what to do first, and tests it later. But whether it will suit you, depends on whether you’re the same type of person as his clients.
A lot of these people were overweight. Those who weren’t, were ‘skinny fat’ – within the government’s weight guidelines but flabby and unfit. There are plenty of Metabolic Aftershock reviews and some of their before and after photos on the Metabolic Prime website here.
The program has also been tested for safety. Jade Teta says, “The moves have been tested on thousands of people to ensure they don’t strain joints, pressure the lower back or put you at risk for pulling a muscle or worse.” There are 3 different levels for each move – easy, medium and advanced – so you can start gently and avoid putting your muscles under any stress.
It’s true that losing fat generally helps people to feel fitter, look younger and enjoy life more. Of course, you will need to combine the program with a relatively healthy diet if you want to lose a lot of weight – or at least, be sure not to eat more to make up for the fat you’re burning. You don’t necessarily have to count calories, but at least take notice of the dietary advice in the program.
On the website you’ll find details of a study published in the scientific Journal of Obesity showing how many more calories a person burns after an intense workout, than after a regular cardio workout.
Who can benefit from Metabolic Aftershock
Jade Teta says that most people who want to tone up and lose fat could benefit from his Metabolic Aftershock program, but it’s especially good for people who are getting a little older – say age 35 and above.
This is because at this age, regular exercise programs that you may have followed when you were young, start to become dangerous. Long cardio sessions (distance running, etc) can stress the heart and the joints, especially if you’ve had injuries in the past, or if your body is carrying a little too much weight.
And if you start an exercise program and then stop because it’s too challenging, you can end up fatter and sicker than you were, because the muscle you’ve built quickly turns to extra fat.
You need a program that is simple, easy and quick, so you can stick to it, whatever your age. The “intelligent exercise” program laid out in Jade Teta’s Metabolic Aftershock system could be the perfect answer.
Who might not benefit from the program
This program may not be for you if you’re already doing a lot of exercise that you enjoy – e.g. if you’re a real gym bunny who loves the atmosphere of a gym, and working out with a lot of machines.
This program is more for people who don’t like doing exercise but want to shape up, or for people who have trouble finding the time or money for long gym workout sessions.
You do have to be prepared to push yourself for a short time, three times a week. There’s no “magic pill” that will enable you to burn fat and tone your body with no effort at all.
Of course, if you have health issues, you should talk to your doctor before undertaking any exercise program. And remember to take rests whenever you need them – because with this program, they actually help you burn more fat, faster!
Cost, guarantees, and where to buy Metabolic Aftershock
Metabolic Aftershock has now been updated and relaunched as Metabolic Prime. Metabolic Aftershock cost $47. The initial launch price for Metabolic Prime is $37, for the instant download version, plus shipping and handling if you also want DVDs shipped to your home. The shipping cost depends on where you live in the world. After the initial launch period, the price will increase. See today’s price here
Even at the higher price, it’s a lot less than you’d pay for a personal trainer – or to follow the same program with Jade Teta in his own clinic.
He’s asking for feedback for the copies sent out at the launch price, but you don’t have to use your real name or supply photos, if you don’t want to. Just let him know what your results were, on the program.
There’s a full 90 day money back guarantee, so you can return it for a refund (less S&H) if you’re not satisfied.
You won’t find the Metabolic Aftershock system in stores, on Amazon or anywhere on the internet except the official website – see the link at the end of this review.
