A health and wellness movement with origins in the U.S. is offering the invitation to folks in and around Castlegar to check out what it has to offer.

At the core of the program called the Metabolic Makeover, is the promise of help and guidance from a number of experts including, according to a recent press release, “local fitness trainers, nutrition and life coaches, counsellors and medical professionals.” The input from these people, the release asserts, is supplied at no charge to those who sign up, although a number of related dietary supplements accompany the program, with a price of $234 a month.

A local three-month program is set to begin on April 12 with and information session planned for Friday, April 5.

“The Metabolic Makeover is a synergistic and proven program designed to increase the efficiency of your body’s energy-producing capacity,” states the supplied literature. “Over the course of three months, you will work in a supportive community and with leading-edge nutritional products toward greater vigor and vitality, improved exercise tolerance, fat burning, increased lean muscle mass, and endurance.

 

“The program includes:

• educational meetings and fitness training sessions,

• discounts & incentives at local fitness facilities,

• fitness tracking tools,

• professional coaching, guidance and support, and

• numerous gift certificates and prizes to celebrate and motivate your journey toward a more vibrant you.”

 

“Metabolism,” the press release explains, “is a complex series of biochemical reactions that maintain life. Metabolic fitness is foundational to physical fitness, and provides your body with a high level of the energy that drives repair, to look, feel and perform your best at any age. Metabolic and physical fitness cultivate a more positive sense of who you are, what you can achieve, and energy to pursue your dreams.
