New Leaf's Active Metabolic Training program and test is offered in select health clubs, personal training studios, medical fitness facilities, and performance training centers throughout North America and the UK where a simple 10-15 minute assessment determines your unique response to exercise through measurement of the amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide you breathe.
This unique metabolic profile allows New Leaf to assign personalized heart rate training zones and programmed exercises to take the guesswork out of how to Make Every Workout Count. The profile also enables the tracking of the actual fuel source - fats or carbs - of your caloric burn rate. Consumers can access their information and track workouts at New Leaf's online portal, eNewLeaf.com.
Leveraging the iPhone's internet connection to eNewLeaf, iNewLeaf downloads a user's customized exercise plans and training zones as well as other data. iNewLeaf tracks not only standard metrics such as heart rate and cycling speed, power and cadence but also provides actual calories and fat calories burned, TRUcal and FATcal. After a workout, iNewLeaf effortlessly uploads the workout data to eNewLeaf without the need to perform any syncing process or procedure.
"New Leaf is once again helping redefine fitness by personalizing each workout to give you real results," said Rod Young, CEO and President of Angeion. "iNewLeaf reports TRUcal and FATcal metrics on the iPhone as you exercise, giving you an actual caloric snapshot that guides your training to improve metabolic efficiency regardless of whether your goal is to lose unwanted fat or win the next marathon," Young continued.
"Common exercise equipment, heart monitors and fitness apps provide estimates of calories burned based on basic personal settings like age, weight and gender. Some estimates are better than others, but iNewLeaf is the first truly "smart" fitness app on a smartphone because true calories are calculated based on a user's unique metabolic data and heart rate while exercising," said Michael Williams, founder and CEO of iTMP.
