Today our expert guest is Angelo Poli, an internationally recognized expert in fitness and nutrition. He’s the founder of MetPro, an evaluation-based health coaching program specializing in transformations. Using a process called metabolic profiling, MetPro analyzes your metabolism and provides an individualized approach to obtaining your health goals.
In 20 years of educating the masses and challenging generalized health guidance, Angelo has become one of the most celebrated and desired body transformation experts in the world. His high profile client list ranges from olympic athletes, NFL MVPs, physique models, and business leaders. Those fortunate enough to receive coaching from Angelo consistently achieve exceptional results, regardless of their demanding schedules, significant injuries, or crippled metabolisms. He is also a writer and featured speaker at conferences, a consultant for corporations, universities, and hospitals around the country, and has been featured in media outlets such as Men’s Health, Sports Illustrated, and The Wall Street Journal.
In his early 20’s, Angelo suffered a debilitating back injury, but he didn’t want to get out of the wellness and fitness industry. He decided he was going to push forward and discover everything he could about the human body and how it works in order to repair his own injuries, and find ways to stay relevant and still be able to contribute in the industry. The area he found the most relevance in was metabolism.
Transformations all hinge on understanding a persons’ individual metabolism. While Angelo continued on this journey, he continued to learn more about how it works, and he discovered that there is very little consistency in what the medical and fitness community understand metabolism to be.
Metabolism is confusing because it is so unique to each individual. Our bodies range so dramatically in how they react to the foods we eat. Before we know whether a certain diet or exercise is going to be effect, we need to understand more about how your individual metabolism works.
Every time we eat, we are conditioning our metabolism. The job of our metabolism is to adapt to our environment to keep us alive. This is the reason we will start to plateau after a diet or exercise change, because our body is adapting to change.
There are five areas that we have to understand in order to know what has to change in order to know what has to change to reach your goals:
-Your body type and goal
Once you understand these five things, you will have a much clearer understanding of your metabolism, and will be able to point you in a positive direction.
