Frequently Asked Questions

What is our class schedule?

What can I expect my results to be?

We focus on lost body fat percentage and inches more than the scale. We feel these 2 things are a more accurate representation than what the scale shows as it relates to fitness. For example you can use the restroom and lose weight but that mean that you are in better shape? On average our members lose about 2.5 to 3 percent body fat per six weeks.

How many classes should I attend per week to reach my goals?

That depends on you as an individual. For some people this is their primary method of working out and they come often. For others, this is a supplement to their usual workout, like swimmers. Many find coming 3 times a week to be optimal.

How long are your contracts?

We do month to month and ask for a 30 day notice for cancellations.

What should I wear?

Wear attire that you feel comfortable working out in, shoes that are supportive and able to run in, and if you would like bring a bottle of water.

What and when should I eat?

A light meal or snack an hour an before working out.

What age range do you offer services for?

We work with individuals of all age ranges.

Are these classes for experienced or someone who is just starting?

Our workouts are designed to accommodate all fitness levels, ages, and abilities. The workouts are mostly functional body weight movements designed to help you move better through your life. We have worked with people who have never worked out before to those training for half and whole marathons, and Ironman triathletes.

I’m new to working out and I’m not sure if group is best for me…

We strive to create a non-intimidating environment. That’s why we keep the groups small and personal. Everyone here from the staff to those working out is very encouraging. We are here for those who want to work out but are not sure what to do or how to get started. We also have one on one personal training options available.

Do I really need the Myzone Heart Rate Monitor?

We require clients use the Myzone heart rate monitor. If you already own on you may use it. Other devices are not as accurate as Myzone nor do they sync with our training system. Our system is specifically designed for trainers to monitor the effort you exert during the workout and set goals using this information. The system calibrates to you more specifically as you continue to use it. The system gives points based on the effort exerted. These points allow us to create challenges and motivate clients to work harder. In turn, true progress is achieved.   myzone-watch

If I have an injury or something that limits my ability to workout, can I still participate in a group class?

Yes. Everyone at Metrics Fitness Lab is a certified personal trainer and is able to adjust and modify workouts as needed to still be effective and target specific muscle groups.

What do I expect when I walk in the door?

Metrics Fitness Lab is a fitness studio workout facility with group personal training classes offered throughout the day. The workouts are based in 4 different stations, or “methods” that are all designed to take a holistic approach to fitness. We use the latest in heartrate monitoring technology to measure the amount of effort to put forth in your workouts. The workouts are designed on a point based system allowing you to move at your own pace.

I really appreciate the judgement free zone and instruction from a trainer to show me how to correctly do exercises. The circuits keep the workout interesting and the trainer to client ratio is amazing! I also enjoy the tracker board so you can see where you are during the workout. Everyone encourages one another and that makes it all better! I can't wait until my next workout in the Lab!

Metrics offers a small group workout setting in a clean facility by staff who really take an interest in you. Each workout is designed with a specific goal and unique exercises. The staff is there to guide you every step of the way with feedback and encouragement. I highly recommend it.

Wow, this is an amazing place to work out...will be your only reaction when you get your fitness on at Metrics! It is the gym that you will brag about to your friends, family, co-workers, the checkout person in the grocery store, your nurse at the doctor’s office, flight attendant, and maybe some random stranger you pass by when you’re walking (due to the level of fit you have become, you will be surpassing everyone). Metrics Fitness Lab is the place where all your health goals can come true. This gym wants you to be the best form of you that you could possibly be to the world, not only physically but mentally and emotionally. You will in turn become an inspiration and motivation to all those that surround you!

I have had the BEST experience at Metrics so far. At the end of January I won a 6 week membership giveaway and since then I've been hooked. It's hard to get a better workout than the ones we do everyday at Metrics. The trainers really cater to your abilities and push you to be better; the small class sizes help the trainers have more time with you individuality to ensure you are hitting your goals. I have seen measurable results and also just feel better overall!

I just recently started looking for a place to get back in shape. Kathryn was welcoming and very encouraging as I started. Ike and Kathryn took time to make sure I was doing all the exercises correctly and continued the encouragement through my first class. But the thing that got me is that the classes are small, and there were two nice ladies that were MY AGE at the station with me encouraging me as well. "We've been there- you can do this!" Looking forward to my journey with this group!

This place is amazing. No matter where you are in your fitness level or what your reason is for wanting to get fit, the instructors are there to help and encourage you every step of the way. They not only focus on each exercise, but they focus on key body movements and making sure that you are doing the exercises correctly so you can achieve maximum results. I never feel like I’m on my journey alone. As soon as I walk in the door I’m greeted by smiling optimistic faces. It’s a complete over all body workout and I never do the same workout. I’m never bored and I always leave feeling like I have accomplished something. The classes are small and it’s nothing short of a family atmosphere. We laugh, we joke, we compete, but most of all we work hard. There staff has helped me understand more now than ever their core theme of “Consistency to achieve measurable results!” Try it I promise you will love it.

I've been working with Ike for 3 months and have seen amazing results within the time. I have never felt stronger or healthier before. Ike is passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm he brings to every session. He makes each workout challenging, creative and most importantly, fun! Also he showed me how to stay motivated and not give up!

I can't say enough good things about Metrics Fitness Lab. I'm a newbie,and they have been very patient with me to date. It's a great workout, with positive reinforcement throughout the hour long class. They give you a nutrition guide to follow,and using the heart rate monitor keeps you honest to yourself, as the results show during class. I really look forward to my progress down the road,and feel like Metrics Fitness Lab will show me the way

It only took one workout at Metrics to get me hooked! It was by far the most effective, fun, thorough workout I've ever done. Having the pros there to help you makes all the difference in the world! I love the point system and the element of competition in brings to the workout. I can't wait to make this a regular part of my routine!

Metrics fitness lab is the perfect place for those looking for a new workout routine. The class sizes are small enough that you receive personalized attention, while still having fun in a group setting! The workouts are for everyone. You go at your own pace and complete as many cycles as you can in the allotted time frame. I also love that you wear a heart monitor so you can see your results on the screen in real time. No workout session is ever the same! Anyone, from beginners to seasoned experts, will love Metrics!

I’ve completed a few sessions at Metrics Fitness Lab and it has been so great! Ike reached out to me to try it out & I am so thankful he did. They are an awesome gym with such a great team of instructors and employees. Honey was so accommodating with such a warm welcome. They are friendly and make every exercise and experience personal and specific to each client. It is such a great workout and with the small group sessions, it’s almost like getting one-on-one personal training so the money is so worth it. The personal trainers are motivating, positive and educational. I would definitely recommend Metrics Fitness lab to all my Auburn friends!!

The personal training in this studio is of the highest quality. The trainers clearly have an excellent education and they generously share knowledge of corrective exercise, nutrition, and purposeful tips for achieving individual goals. They also make it a priority to engage each person specifically and reinforce good practice/ form. I'm sure that the work I do here won't end in hurt/disaster for me. I couldn't be happier and the pounds are falling away!

Metrics Fitness Lab had produced, by far, the best gym experience I have ever had. The small group personal training atmosphere is unsurpassed, and makes it possible for the trainers to pay attention to everyone individually instead of just overseeing some huge class. At the gym, we wear MyZone heart rate monitors to track effort. This technology is truly innovative and pushes us to work harder. The best thing about Metrics to me is that the trainers really care. They do their part to hold you accountable, keep you consistent in your fitness and nutrition, and provide a fun atmosphere to workout in. I never leave Metrics feeling like I haven't been challenged. For anyone looking for a place to make big improvements in their health, give Metrics a try!

I absolutely love Metrics! When I first started, I couldn't make it it through a full workout without stopping to recover, but with the encouragement of the trainers I stayed at it and I am so glad I did! I have lost over 20 lbs and feel so much more in shape! Each day's workout is different so your body is kept guessing and you never get bored! I contribute a lot of this with wearing the heart rate monitor and the trainers, Ike and Chappy. The monitor kept me honest and the trainers taught me correct form and encouraged me. I'll get measured soon to see how many inches I've lost and will post it here. If you need help getting into shape and getting healthy, this is the place!

I've been with Metrics for about a year now, and I don't get a better work out than I do here! My favorite part about this gym is the trainers, they really care about getting you to see results. They pay attention to how you do an exercise to make sure you don't get hurt, they give you ways you can step it up a little, and they even give you tips on how to eat healthier! If anyone is looking for a gym to try out, please come to Metrics! You won't regret it!
