M.E.T. Training This Weekend in NYC

The Movement Efficiency Training (M.E.T.) method is a revolutionary way of approaching fitness. M.E.T. combines an understanding of human evolution and neuroscience to work with the entire person, as opposed to previous exercise models that focus primarily on the musculoskeletal system. One of the most exciting things about this method is that anyone at any level of fitness can start immediately.
