Metabolic Effect (30 mins) & Metabolic Prime (22 mins) REST based hormonal, fat burning & muscle building workouts

One of the very first licensed and qualified UK & European Metabolic Effect Instructors – June 2011

Ever wondered why you can’t lose fat no matter how hard and long you exercise for or how little you eat?
Your metabolism and hormones are making you and keeping you fat . . . .FACT!!

Did you know these 3 exercise types depress your thyroid by 28.2% & stop fat burning?

– Running, spining or hot yoga

– Lifting weights, kettlebells or even just bodyweight

– CrossFit or another high-intensity workout

You’d simply be weakening joints, heart lining(hot yoga) & wasting your time so don’t be surprised at your poor, long term results.

I use & endorse the 30 minute rest based Metabolic Effect & Metabolic Prime 22 minute workouts for not only fat burning & hormone stimulation but also for bone building. Self produced testosterone & human growth hormone, which we make during adolescence, is produced during an ME workout to re-build bone, ideal after a trauma, illness or aging.

Teach your HORMONES to eliminate body fat and build, quality toned muscle, day in, day out . . . for life!!

*Eat MORE

of the foods that assist your own metabolism, hormones, bio-chemistry and total physiological & neurological needs

*Exercise LESS

3 or just 2 x 30 minutes per week is all it takes

*REST & accelerate fat loss

. . . yes, you burn fat for up to THREE DAYS after each 30 minute session

plus I encourage you to rest DURING the workout so you don’t “pace” yourself , working to your own level each & every time

The ME eating and personal training program nourishes the body with plenty of nutritious, easy to purchase foods, includes treats like chocolate, and works with your hormones, the ME Diet and program IS 100% sustainable and do-able on a long term basis. (I don’t know about you, but when I’m told to give up my treats I crave it all the more and end up sabotaging my progress)

The ME eating & exercise program

 * never counts calories        *never weighs you      * never allows you to get hungry
 
but the Metabolic Effect program DOES;
 
*measure body parts to see actual body fat lost       
*uses your hormones to suppress starvation and hunger
*boosts the metabolic rate so you actually burn fat even whilst at rest 
*does not require will power as you’re given treats and weekly “REWARD MEALS” to enjoy without any guilt 
*changes your relationship to food FOREVER

Classes FAQs

Who is Metabolic Effect created for ?

Anyone wishing to;
  1. target and reduce body fat  – obese / morbidly obese / lack of muscle tone
  2. create and build muscle mass healthily  – recovering after illnesses / substance abuse / post surgery / post pregnancy
  3. anyone with diagnosed hormonal imbalances  – diabebes / thyrodism / menapause / depression / bi polar  / Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
  4. those who simply want an effective workout to save both time and money spending no more then 60-90 minutes per week on cardio vascular workouts
  5. those who want to target and accelerate any of the the above imbalances using their hormones, effective training and tailored made eating plan (not a diet)

How does this ME program work?

Your body needs the right fuel and incentives to regulate itself. If you’re not eating enough or properly the messages to your fat storing facilities is to STORE MORE FAT – this is why so many obese people say they’ve eaten so little but just get even fatter, it’s why  yo-yo dieting is so pointless and heartbreaking. The ME program unites the  hormones and the physical being (body and food intake)  to make it work for you, not against you. There alot more information on the official ME website which I’d really recommend visiting  http://www.metaboliceffect.com/. In essence, 80% of the program is around hormonal types, nutrition and lifestyle,  the remaining 20% is the targetted workouts by me.

You’ll actually be burning fat at an accelerated rate for 24-48 hours after each ME personal training work out, again your hormones and metabolism are working out during your sleep or TV time, how great is that? it means that just three 30 minute sessions a week is actually fat burning for 6 days in total.

There are no weighing or BMI both of which are totally flawed I only measure your actual fat loss. Also there are not foods that are excluded, even chocolate is allowed, and instead or weighing you can have bites or sips (of alcohol) of your favourite items without sabotaging the program PLUS you have a weekly REWARD MEAL every week which you can have whatever you like and which resets your metabolism for the rest of the week, so I actually encourage it

  • Session 1 – I will take your measurements and photograph you on the first session so we know where we’re starting from. On your 12th session we will compare those measurements and images .You’ll have given me your Physical Questionnaire and the ME Fuel Burner Questionnaire before the session then we can start your first 30 minute personal training group workout
  • Before Session 2 – I will give you  your ME Fuel Burner profile so you can start eating more and eating the foods your body won’t store as fat
  • Each week thereafter every week you attend  I will give you my own ME advice via email
  • Session 12 we re-measure and re-photograph you  . . .  you’ll then want to sign up for the next 12 sessions for sure!

What is the 30 minute training workout?

This unique 30 minute REST BASED workout uses dumbells and includes a warmup, a workout  and a cool down and with as many rest times as you decide upon. The 30 minutes is timed by the second so you really do need to pay attention to the techniques used though you can rest throughout . My ME video gives you an idea of what to expect and notice the range of sizes and ages of people attending, it’s not all athletes and models but REAL people living real, busy lives

What does RESTED BASED mean?

Rest Based means that it is my job is to encourage you to rest and take breaks throughout not to keep moving when you’re exhausted . This is totally contrary to other forms of hardcore “bootcamp” sessions where you continue until you drop and get punished if you do. ME  allows the hormones of your body to flush through your system and burn more fat  in the coming 48 hours because of the way it’s constructed and teh way it  works with your metabolism

I am very strict on the technique you use, more so than ME are and this is because if you’re lunging or squatting  incorrectly you will still lose body fat but you’ll be damaging your joints and creating a new set of problems for yourself . It is crucial that you always watch and listen to my instruction as, even professional instructors need  correcting on the right technique which is often the hardest element to my ME class.

Many clients have done aerobics and weights for decades but have never been shown or correctly in the  anatomically correct way so even they have a shock when they see and are shown what they’ve been doing  . . . and why they have ankle, knee and back issues as a result of that long term poor technique. 

Where are the classes held? – venue, facilities & directions


The Dance Studio. Woodford County High School. High Road. Woodford Green. Essex IG8 9LA

If driving use the Vehicle Entrance beside the bus stop on the main road (High Road), which will lead you left to the glass fronted Sports Hall. You can park anywhere in this area.

Visit http://www.woodford.redbridge.sch.uk/ for directions and nearest tube and train lines. Buses that stop directly outside are W13, 20 & 179 .

Mirrored studio. Some yoga mats provided but I recommend bringing your own for hygiene purposes. Toilets. Disabled access. Air Conditioned. Free car park

Visit http://www.woodford.redbridge.sch.uk/ for directions and nearest tube and train lines. Buses that stop directly outside are W13, 20 & 179 . If driving use the Vehicle Entrance beside the bus stop on the main road (High Road), which will lead you left to the glass fronted Sports Hall. You can park anywhere in this area.

What equipment is provided?


I have sets of dumbbells at the venue or to bring to you . If we have discussed your weights needing to be over 9kg per hand you will be asked to bring your own .I’d recommend having a mat or large thick bath towels to lie upon. 

What do I bring to my 1st class?


  1. Completed Physical Questionnaire – besides being an insurance necessity it helps instructors help you during the class . If you are currently pregnant I will need send you an additional Pregnancy Physical Questionnaire ..
  2. Mat – or 2 large bath towels to lie on if you don’t have a proper Pilates or Yoga mat.
  3. Bottled water or non-carbonated drinks to keep you hydrated.

What do I wear?

  • Stretchable Sportsware  – lots of sportswear is non stretchable (e.g has no lycra or elastane content) which restricts your movement and is unsuitable for exercise classes. Baggy loose clothing is fine as are short Hijab’s (to avoid being caught in excess fabric) but body hugging / fitted clothing is always best for you to see exactly what your body is doing.
  • Trainers (not plimsoles) with good ankle support

When do I do the measuring and photographs before my first session?

For your  1st and 12th session those attending classes, measuring and photographs will take place before your session. The following weekly times at the same Woodford Green venue have been allocated
for this.

  1. Mondays 18.45 – 19.20- {up to 4 students}
  2. Thurdays 19.30 -20.00 {up to 3 students}

Measuring takes about 5-7 minutes so please do not miss the time as I teach classes straight after so you will have had a wasted journey

If you contact me at least 24 hours in advance I will let you know which spaces have availability for you to attend.

You  cannot attend a class until the pre-class photos and measurements have been taken unless you choose just to do classes without the  full program, in which case just photos will be taken.

Will you provide me with the actual meals like many “weight” groups do?

Absolutely not!! Why would anyone want someone else’s food choice?  I like to select my own food each and every day, depending on what I fancy, because I trust myself to make choices that I’ll enjoy and will still make me burn fat. You will learn to adopt this outlook too as it’s the only way you can build your food confidence and trust yourself to make choices that work for you on a long term basis.

This is a unique program because instead of telling you to eat less you’re encouraged to eat MORE and instead of dictating specific meals that will eventually bore you,  Metabolic Effect helps you adapt your favourite and culturally diverse foods to it . Yes you can still have curry and rice, pizza, burgers, alcohol, we just have to adjust how you have these depending on your fuel burner  type.

This means you can use what I teach you for LIFE  without being dependant upon specific meals or cutting out the meals you love the most . So you can eat out, even fast food without sabotaging your fat burning process. In fact each week  I encourage you to have a Reward Meal where you eat and drink exactly what you want as much as you want . . .  and that still doesn’t sabotage your progress.

With other programs that give you specific pre-packaged meals (which you know are loaded with preservatives, sugar and salt)  it makes you totally dependant upon them for your meal choices, size and variety. I’ll be teaching you to use the Metabolic Effect knowledge I share with you for yourself and your choices every day without getting bored or being “given” meal choices. This is the only way to gain / regain your nutritional power and control  which you’ll use for life. Yes you’ll have off days or occasions when you blow out but that’s all part of your  development and as valid as the “good days” when it ‘s all second nature. With ME it’s the journey not the destination that counts for long term, permanent success

I have no will power will ME still work for me?

I cannot make you do things only you can follow what I guide you with but if you;

  • follow the exact instructions I give you for eating and exercise program
  • if you acknowledge that you WILL “fall of the wagon” occassionally and thats to be expected
  • if you accept that you’re trying to change the habits of 20,30 even 40+ years (most hang ups start in childhood)then it takes time and patience
  • if you don’t allow yourself or others to sabotage your success – when work for success you deserve success

then this program will work for you 100% , without ANY doubt as the USA research and client case studies confirm this .

I often refer to “self sabotage” in the advice I give you either because you’re used to expecting less of yourself or putting yourself down or because you allow others to put you down, either way you can expect changes it just depends how much you embrace the new you. Over eating, smoking and drinking are all addictions but also control mechanisms: they remind you that you’re in control of these areas, the question is are you going to allow these toxic habits and substances to continue to control you or are you taking charge?

Fat loss like any challenge is more mental that physical if it weren’t, then all the pills, positions and diet fads that have existed over the decades would have worked LONG TERM and PERMANENTLY but you and I both know they don’t work because you need to work hard at making changes and the mental adjustment. The question is are you ready for the challenge, for change for improvement and for turning all old ideas out of the door ?

Do I need any supplements? if so what do I specifically need?

The answer is YES  all of us do because the RDA’s set by the EU are based on the 70 year old requirement of the Second World War soldiers when life expectancy was considerably lower and food nutrition considerably higher . I would only recommend 100% potency products by internationally renowned USANA Health Sciences as they are guaranteed for quality, purity and accurate dosages . If we can naturally  nourish your cells you’ll be not only  fitter  but able to  combat infections and diseases  . . . that’s what healthy cells are designed to do

If you trust me with your  health please trust me with your nutrition which forms a huge part of that all round health . This is why I now give you a FREE 3 day sample (class) or 10 day sample (Premier 1-2-1 ) worth of the Essentials (Chelated Minerals &  Mega Anti Oxidants) for FREE so you can trial them at no cost to yourself to see how they work for you without chemicals

  1. amazing you’ll feel
  2. how well you’ll look to those around you
  3. how any medication you’re on becomes much more potent so your  GP will be reducing your doses
  4. how much energy you’ll have
  5. how infections or long term conditions shift and lessen even after just a few days

USANA Health Sciences are the No1  products in the world class athletes including Serena Williams, The Womens Tennis Association, Karina Bryant (2012 Olympic Judo Bronze Medalist) and British Rugby and FC’s choose to use: that means they are not paid to do so they CHOOSE to use these products. I can email you the current list of  UK and International teams and professionals who use USANA . Karina Bryant was at a USANA conference in June and said she who was using USANA secretly whilst with part of the Team GB 2012 as they were supplied with another inferior products which she never used and were still sitting in the boot of her car!!

After the sample I’ll be suggesting that you become Preferred Customers so you can purchase the products for yourself and your family (even children  . . . I’ve even used these on animals) at the lower rate I get them for instead of the retail price shown on my website.

Do I have to give up smoking and / or drinking for this to work?

The first client I taught in July 2011 continued to smoke daily and even binge drank in the first week yet she still lost measurable body fat in inches by the 12th session which she was delighted with ( I’m still waiting for her testimonial). Obviously she acknowledges that she would have lost even more had she not been smoking and binge drinking but that’s her decision to make.

This program is striving to re-introduce you to your own body and hormones which you’ve probably never done before so it’s new and it’s weird. Your daily journal will tell you what you’re mood is like, how certain foods make you feel good or bad, it’s about looking at your personal patterns to see what works for you long term. One size does not fit all so each of you will have totally unique ways of implementing the advice I give you that’s how flexible this program is for you as an individual .Obviously if you’re drinking and smoking it’s the equivalent of trying to have a meaningful conversation in a busy, noisy, crowded nightclub you just won’t understand or “hear” what is being said. Consider smoking and drinking as the noise, darkness and chaos of a nightclub and you trying to have a conversation with your hormones, how difficult are you going to make it for your hormones to be heard?

What if I’m on prescribed drugs or illegal drugs – do I need to inform my GP or drugs counsellor?


Yes I strongly recommend telling your GP, drugs counsellor and medical advisors about the ME program before you sign up, so that all of us are working with you simultaneously. I’d suggest giving them my business card which has my credentials and website on it so they can refer to that for information . I suggest notifying them because;

  1. I want your GP or drugs advisor to know that you are taking positive steps to improve yourself and your health – their additional support is valuable to you
  2. they will need to alter your medication as your become able to listen to your body so they may do additional health checks to make sure this is done on time
  3. they can give you extra counselling or mental support during your transitional days, when you’re more moody or upset, which happens as your hormones start to kick in

All the answers they need are either on my site or the ME USA site for them to go through if they need to but please do not ask them to call or email me until they’ve read my website fully ; I’m simply too busy to give information verbally which I have already collated extensively on my website

Will my food bills be higher?

80-90% of your fat loss success depends upon what and how you eat . Initially you may find you are purchasing more food as you’ll be eating more food per day than you do now but also you’ll be eating better quality food, fresh or frozen produce, fish, meat, vegetables and fruit with meals being tailor made and homemade by you as much as possible. Junk food and snacks are cheap because they’re made of bad quality off cuts or padded out with salt, sugar and additives even if you can’t taste them.

All foods can be sourced in all local outlets, supermarkets and markets so there is nothing that you won’t be able to purchase quickly and easily even if you’re on the run but the program will entail you to be thinking about and planning your meals in advance so you’re ready and prepared. Remember not all “healthy” foods will be suitable for your fat burning capability which is why the hormonal and dietary assessment I do for you should be with you all the time as it shows you what you can eat alot of , what you can have a little bit of and how to deal with your cravings if and when you get them

Organisation and careful consideration are the keys to your ME success but I continually give you  free advice via my facebook page which I’d recommend you check out https://www.facebook.com/SolariUKHealthandWellBeingExperts

What conditions have you taught?

I’m especially interested in working with people who have Type 2 Diabetes to reverse that metabolic and hormonal imbalance and also long term obese or dieters because the results for these particular groups will be astonishingly rapid. This is also why my Physical Questionnaires are as detailed as they are – I am only required to ask about issues in the last 6-12 months; I go back to childhood. This is more work for me as an instructor, but I find it’s a much more beneficial for my students.

I’ve taught people with the following issues and as we’re using your own ability and metabolism at your own pace with as much rest as you need, I see no medical or anatomical reason why any clients I’ve taught with the following conditions could not be successfully taught the ME progam with great results;

*Muscular Dystrophy *Scholiosis *Kyphosis *Rheumatism *Cancer (pre and post operative & non operative patients) *Arthritis *Spinal Injuries; prolapsed discs / compression
*Joint injuries/damage  *Hip & Knee Replacements *Metal Plating (back,ankles,feet,shoulders,hands) *Spinal narrowing *Fibromyalgia  *Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
*Hamstring Damage *Sciatic Nerve *Motor Neuron Disease * Sight & Hearing Issues *Tendonitis *Cardio Thoracic Patients (pre & post operative)
*Asthmatics*Diabetics * Hypertension/High & Low Blood Pressure *Crones Disease *Lupus Sufferers *Graves Disease *Multiple Sclorsis
*Repetitive Strain Injury *Insomnia *Depression *Obesity & Body Mass Issues *Pre & Post Natal *Anaemia / Sickle Cell Anaemia

It is always advised to seek the permission of your GP, Physio, midwife or any other medical consultant / practitioner you’re working with before joining any fitness classes. Please feel free to pass them my details if they’d like to contact me in person

What are the age limits ?

For fitness classes there is no lower or upper age limit set by legislation though I’d always recommend seeking the advice of your GP or consultant when starting exercise programs.  Children can do any of my classes for their well being or medical conditions though I do limit the use of heavy weights / resistance due to the maleable quality of their bone density. I would expect to have partental consent on all booking forms and when paying for anyone under the age of 16 to ensure that the parents approve of the work being done, though this is not currently required by law.

My specialist training for Elderly clients (YMCA) means that I can adapt exercises for their specific needs and my regular Criminal Records Bureau checks (CRB) means I have the additional approval to work with under 16’s & Special Needs clients. I am fully and regularly CRB checked (Criminal Records Bureau) so am fully approved to work with children of all ages, special needs adults and all learning groups. I have no problem being CRB checked for your own institution should you require it

Should I exercise if I’m tired or unwell?

No reputable exercise instructor will EVER advise working out when your fatigued or unwell. If you think about how dangerous it is to drive when you’re unwell or tired you can image that the compromised reflexes and concentration will cause accidents, the same is true of exercise. Though this seems to be common sense many people turn up to classes when hugely fatigued or ill and create more problems for themselves and the instructors teaching them. You get no credit for simply turning up, it’s the quality of the work you do that should be important to you.

Having said this, people who exercise and work hard are usually able to be just as focused and determined when they’re tired or unwell; I myself have continued with a full day of classes when I’d just severed my right hamstrings and dislocated my right hip (2006) so working out or teaching when injured or unwell with flu is not an issue for me. Exercising does detoxifies the body and is recommended when suffering with a hangover or a cold but only you can judge whether you have the temprament, stamina and determination of a semi-athlete to work effectively or whether skipping a session to recover properly would be better for you.

I’m injured – can I adapt the program or use other equipment / techniques?

ME is a scientifically proven program. If your injury does not allow you to lift dumbbells or bend your knees without agony, then you need to recover and only join my ME tuition when you can

ME exercise is NON ADAPTABLE meaning that some of you have asked if you can use different equipment or alternatives the answer to all of this is NO!! ME USA have spent years devising the eating and exercise programs to the absolute SECOND so if they thought other equipment was suitable they would have recommend it, they actually stress that we DO NOT use other techniques or equipment for their program . . .  so I never  digress from their specification

I’m not physically active – how will I cope?

All themore resaon to be builing up your stamina and strength so you can cope with every day activities and more .If you follow my demonstrations, ensure that you listen to my instructions and do not compete with my more advanced / well practiced people you’ll be setting yourself up for gradual consistent success.

Those who don’t do the above, or try to do exercises beyond what I advise you to do will sabotage your success and will set yourself up to fail. I’d rather work with someone who doesn’t do that as my time and space is limited

Can I join when I’m pregnant or just after birth?

Unless you have done ME with me before you pregnancy I’d say no because;

  1. we have no way of knowing your levels of ME specific fitness before your pregnancy
  2. your hormones are already being over worked and your fuel burner type will alter throughout the pregnancy – it’s simply too much for the body to deal with at one time.

During pregnancy your top priority should be nourishing and feeding your baby not losing fat after birth ( celebrities often have surgery straight after birth which is why they appear to bounce back into shape so quickly).

I’d recommend deferring the full ME program until at least 4 months after birth to allow your hormones to settle ( it can take 12- 18 months for hormones to go back to pre-pregnancy levels) , however you can start the ME sessions  WITHOUT the full  hormonal program 1 month after birth but with much lighter dumbbells. Discuss the program with your GP or midwife, for their support and give them my website for them to see if it’s suitable for you and what time they suggest is suitable for you to start

I don’t recognise / like / can’t sing along to the tunes you use for the sessions can you change them?

No, the music used is the original and official ME instructors music which was deliberately created by ME so that you would not be distracted by the tune or, use the beat of the songs to set the pace of your activities (that’s actually why instructors CD’s are so expensive because of these musical punctuations, beat transitions and continuity of play) . Unlike my Swiss Ball & Glider sessions where I deliberately use popular, usually Disco tunes, with ME the research done by ME USA over a 6 year period created original music that is purely motivational and totally non familiar. I will only ever use the official ME music for my classes because of the scientific thought they’ve taken to create it

When to call if I need additional information?


If you have read the above information and have a query not covered the hours to phone are 1pm – 9.30pm GMT on 020 8523 5145 . Calls will not be responded to outside these hours though email is preferred.

“I was sceptical of it {Metabolic Effect} as I’ve not heard of it before but because you were looking for people with diabetes, like me, I thought, let me try it; I’ll be a guinea pig!! After 3 weeks {the 9th 30 minute session} when I put on my t-shirts which were so figure hugging before, they were now lose. I’m down from an XL to L after just 9 sessions. I’m still having my naughties {cakes, crisps, sweets} so if I followed it more strictly there’ll be even more fat lost. . . I’ve lost inches and the measurements don’t lie. My close friend saw me on week 3 and she noticed the difference then but by week 4 she said “your man boobs are gone, you can’t fill a bra cup anymore” . . . that’s fine by me :o)”Claude Burke, Walthamstow, 4 Nov 2011

IMG_3066 006(1)

Please note that Claude not only has Type 2 Diabetes, he also had a shoulder injury, a knee injury and with his family and work life demands was often doing ME until 10pm, resting for a few hours before waking at 3.30am for his job … hows that for dedication!!

I’ve struggled with my size for years, and ME is the first programme that I feel really works for me. I’m thinking of food in a completely different way, enjoying exercise and getting fitter every day. I’m so grateful to Natasha for helping me change — I’ve now dropped two dress sizes in two months, and am looking forward to the next stage!” Kate, West London 6 July 2012

Thanks for the great session on Friday {1st session}, Natasha! I really enjoyed the workout and I can still feel the after-effects {2 days later}… Apart from the intrinsic benefits it’s also a great way to change things up a bit and get away from my usual routine – I think my muscles were just too much getting used to spinning etc. See you tomorrow” Michaela Unterbarnscheidt, Highbury 2 October 2011

Michaelas update after 2 months :
“I’ve dropped THREE jean sizes in two months. “Working with Natasha has been an amazing journey – challenging, extremely effective, and FUN! Natasha is a dedicated and very knowledgeable teacher and kept me motivated with great nutritional advice and an ever changing exercise routine. Her dietary recommendations and rest-based weight training helped me fit into a jeans three sizes (!!) smaller than my usual, after just two months. I have lost fat, gained muscle definition and can just feel the difference in everything I do day in, day out – all in just 90 minutes a week, and with as much delicious fresh food as I want! Thanks for all your hard work Natasha, your support and encouragement! I’ve really enjoyed the sessions with you :) Michaela – 14 December 2011

“Having completed the ME programme {1st 12 sessions only}, I must say how happy I am with my inch loss. Natasha measured vital areas around my body before and after the 6 week course. I was so surprised to see inches just melt away from me, although there were areas where the inches increased, apparently this is where the muscles are working and should increase. The actual workout is hard, but it is packed into 30 mins. If you are anything like me, I hate exercise but it is only 30 mins and when you see the results it’s worth it. Don’t think you can cheat in any way as Natasha does not take her eyes off your every move, she is a very firm woman and will be up front and straight with you if she thinks you are not doing something right. If you are serious about getting fit and into shape then Natasha is a trainer that will give you the results you are striving for.I am very pleased with the overall experience and the progress that I made with Natasha’s help and determination. Gina Gauci, North Chingford, 11 December 2011

“I’ve only had 6 sessions {3 hours of tuition} with Natasha so far but already I’ve noticed a difference. My jeans are fitting more loosely and last week my hairdresser told me I looked like I’d lost weight! I’m going to the Larkswood sessions which are perfect timing if you’re a mum. I can get the kids into bed and then go to my workout. The sessions are hard, but it’s only 30 mins twice a week. Well worth it for the great results! Natasha is brilliant. She is meticulous about you having the correct position and doing the exercises properly. She won’t let you slack off but if you’re serious about getting rid of the fat she’s your woman! ” Marilyn Henderson, South Woodford, 26 February 2012

Marilyn-H-21.jpg
 “Forget long boring sessions in the Gym and feeling miserable from not eating (proven over again not to work and to actually drive you mad), Natasha’s metabolic training is only half an hour out of your day and you eat a lot and you loose inches. Also Natasha shows you technique and how to do exercises properly, something you don’t get with a DVD or a solo gym session. I also suffer prone to Polycistic ovaries and have always had a stomach that blows up like a balloon (even when a skinny size 8) so sometimes find it impossible to pull in it just won’t go. I just depends on the day. But it {Metabolic Effect}t does work and I definitely had more energy and felt better. I hate and don’t have time to spend loads of time going to the gym, working out for an hour coming back etc so this half an hour burst coming to my door was perfect for me. Like everything it is difficult to change over night – small steps and learn from mistakes so you don’t do it again. So if you hate the gym and love eating and still want to loose weight this is the one for you “Sarah, Dalston UK 31 May 2013

“I did a Metabolic class with Natasha, I found this whole body workout a great way to exercise. I did a second Metabolic Class as part of an instructors course with another instructor {Natasha’s original tutor} but I found Natasha’s {class} tougher and more effective. I like this way of training so much I want to teach it!! Chris Murray-Johnson, Fitness Instructor, 27 Sept 2011

Dear Natasha, Thank you for the intense session today. I’ve been working in the gym since February {3 months} and have never felt my abs work so hard in so short time. Looking forward to another great , Icilda Chingford E4

“Hi Natasha,Thanks very much for the session {1st session} last night . I won’t lie; I had to delicately peel myself out of bed this morning! But I really like the feeling afterwards when you can feel all your muscles are a little bit sore, but they all got worked.Very satisfying!” Julia Kasch 8 December 2011

Classes FAQs

Who is Metabolic Effect created for ?

Anyone wishing to;
  1. target and reduce body fat  – obese / morbidly obese / lack of muscle tone
  2. create and build muscle mass healthily  – recovering after illnesses / substance abuse / post surgery / post pregnancy
  3. anyone with diagnosed hormonal imbalances  – diabebes / thyrodism / menapause / depression / bi polar  / Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
  4. those who simply want an effective workout to save both time and money spending no more then 60-90 minutes per week on cardio vascular workouts
  5. those who want to target and accelerate any of the the above imbalances using their hormones, effective training and tailored made eating plan (not a diet)

How does this ME program work?

Your body needs the right fuel and incentives to regulate itself. If you’re not eating enough or properly the messages to your fat storing facilities is to STORE MORE FAT – this is why so many obese people say they’ve eaten so little but just get even fatter, it’s why  yo-yo dieting is so pointless and heartbreaking. The ME program unites the  hormones and the physical being (body and food intake)  to make it work for you, not against you. There alot more information on the official ME website which I’d really recommend visiting  http://www.metaboliceffect.com/. In essence, 80% of the program is around hormonal types, nutrition and lifestyle,  the remaining 20% is the targetted workouts by me.

You’ll actually be burning fat at an accelerated rate for 24-48 hours after each ME personal training work out, again your hormones and metabolism are working out during your sleep or TV time, how great is that? it means that just three 30 minute sessions a week is actually fat burning for 6 days in total.

There are no weighing or BMI both of which are totally flawed I only measure your actual fat loss. Also there are not foods that are excluded, even chocolate is allowed, and instead or weighing you can have bites or sips (of alcohol) of your favourite items without sabotaging the program PLUS you have a weekly REWARD MEAL every week which you can have whatever you like and which resets your metabolism for the rest of the week, so I actually encourage it

  • Session 1 – I will take your measurements and photograph you on the first session so we know where we’re starting from. On your 12th session we will compare those measurements and images .You’ll have given me your Physical Questionnaire and the ME Fuel Burner Questionnaire before the session then we can start your first 30 minute personal training group workout
  • Before Session 2 – I will give you  your ME Fuel Burner profile so you can start eating more and eating the foods your body won’t store as fat
  • Each week thereafter every week you attend  I will give you my own ME advice via email
  • Session 12 we re-measure and re-photograph you  . . .  you’ll then want to sign up for the next 12 sessions for sure!

What is the 30 minute training workout?

This unique 30 minute REST BASED workout uses dumbells and includes a warmup, a workout  and a cool down and with as many rest times as you decide upon. The 30 minutes is timed by the second so you really do need to pay attention to the techniques used though you can rest throughout . My ME video gives you an idea of what to expect and notice the range of sizes and ages of people attending, it’s not all athletes and models but REAL people living real, busy lives

What does RESTED BASED mean?

Rest Based means that it is my job is to encourage you to rest and take breaks throughout not to keep moving when you’re exhausted . This is totally contrary to other forms of hardcore “bootcamp” sessions where you continue until you drop and get punished if you do. ME  allows the hormones of your body to flush through your system and burn more fat  in the coming 48 hours because of the way it’s constructed and teh way it  works with your metabolism

I am very strict on the technique you use, more so than ME are and this is because if you’re lunging or squatting  incorrectly you will still lose body fat but you’ll be damaging your joints and creating a new set of problems for yourself . It is crucial that you always watch and listen to my instruction as, even professional instructors need  correcting on the right technique which is often the hardest element to my ME class.

Many clients have done aerobics and weights for decades but have never been shown or correctly in the  anatomically correct way so even they have a shock when they see and are shown what they’ve been doing  . . . and why they have ankle, knee and back issues as a result of that long term poor technique. 

Where are the classes held? – venue, facilities & directions


The Dance Studio. Woodford County High School. High Road. Woodford Green. Essex IG8 9LA

If driving use the Vehicle Entrance beside the bus stop on the main road (High Road), which will lead you left to the glass fronted Sports Hall. You can park anywhere in this area.

Visit http://www.woodford.redbridge.sch.uk/ for directions and nearest tube and train lines. Buses that stop directly outside are W13, 20 & 179 .

Mirrored studio. Some yoga mats provided but I recommend bringing your own for hygiene purposes. Toilets. Disabled access. Air Conditioned. Free car park

Visit http://www.woodford.redbridge.sch.uk/ for directions and nearest tube and train lines. Buses that stop directly outside are W13, 20 & 179 . If driving use the Vehicle Entrance beside the bus stop on the main road (High Road), which will lead you left to the glass fronted Sports Hall. You can park anywhere in this area.

What equipment is provided?


I have sets of dumbbells at the venue or to bring to you . If we have discussed your weights needing to be over 9kg per hand you will be asked to bring your own .I’d recommend having a mat or large thick bath towels to lie upon. 

What do I bring to my 1st class?


  1. Completed Physical Questionnaire – besides being an insurance necessity it helps instructors help you during the class . If you are currently pregnant I will need send you an additional Pregnancy Physical Questionnaire ..
  2. Mat – or 2 large bath towels to lie on if you don’t have a proper Pilates or Yoga mat.
  3. Bottled water or non-carbonated drinks to keep you hydrated.

What do I wear?

  • Stretchable Sportsware  – lots of sportswear is non stretchable (e.g has no lycra or elastane content) which restricts your movement and is unsuitable for exercise classes. Baggy loose clothing is fine as are short Hijab’s (to avoid being caught in excess fabric) but body hugging / fitted clothing is always best for you to see exactly what your body is doing.
  • Trainers (not plimsoles) with good ankle support

When do I do the measuring and photographs before my first session?

For your  1st and 12th session those attending classes, measuring and photographs will take place before your session. The following weekly times at the same Woodford Green venue have been allocated
for this.

  1. Mondays 18.45 – 19.20- {up to 4 students}
  2. Thurdays 19.30 -20.00 {up to 3 students}

Measuring takes about 5-7 minutes so please do not miss the time as I teach classes straight after so you will have had a wasted journey

If you contact me at least 24 hours in advance I will let you know which spaces have availability for you to attend.

You  cannot attend a class until the pre-class photos and measurements have been taken unless you choose just to do classes without the  full program, in which case just photos will be taken.

Will you provide me with the actual meals like many “weight” groups do?

Absolutely not!! Why would anyone want someone else’s food choice?  I like to select my own food each and every day, depending on what I fancy, because I trust myself to make choices that I’ll enjoy and will still make me burn fat. You will learn to adopt this outlook too as it’s the only way you can build your food confidence and trust yourself to make choices that work for you on a long term basis.

This is a unique program because instead of telling you to eat less you’re encouraged to eat MORE and instead of dictating specific meals that will eventually bore you,  Metabolic Effect helps you adapt your favourite and culturally diverse foods to it . Yes you can still have curry and rice, pizza, burgers, alcohol, we just have to adjust how you have these depending on your fuel burner  type.

This means you can use what I teach you for LIFE  without being dependant upon specific meals or cutting out the meals you love the most . So you can eat out, even fast food without sabotaging your fat burning process. In fact each week  I encourage you to have a Reward Meal where you eat and drink exactly what you want as much as you want . . .  and that still doesn’t sabotage your progress.

With other programs that give you specific pre-packaged meals (which you know are loaded with preservatives, sugar and salt)  it makes you totally dependant upon them for your meal choices, size and variety. I’ll be teaching you to use the Metabolic Effect knowledge I share with you for yourself and your choices every day without getting bored or being “given” meal choices. This is the only way to gain / regain your nutritional power and control  which you’ll use for life. Yes you’ll have off days or occasions when you blow out but that’s all part of your  development and as valid as the “good days” when it ‘s all second nature. With ME it’s the journey not the destination that counts for long term, permanent success

I have no will power will ME still work for me?

I cannot make you do things only you can follow what I guide you with but if you;

  • follow the exact instructions I give you for eating and exercise program
  • if you acknowledge that you WILL “fall of the wagon” occassionally and thats to be expected
  • if you accept that you’re trying to change the habits of 20,30 even 40+ years (most hang ups start in childhood)then it takes time and patience
  • if you don’t allow yourself or others to sabotage your success – when work for success you deserve success

then this program will work for you 100% , without ANY doubt as the USA research and client case studies confirm this .

I often refer to “self sabotage” in the advice I give you either because you’re used to expecting less of yourself or putting yourself down or because you allow others to put you down, either way you can expect changes it just depends how much you embrace the new you. Over eating, smoking and drinking are all addictions but also control mechanisms: they remind you that you’re in control of these areas, the question is are you going to allow these toxic habits and substances to continue to control you or are you taking charge?

Fat loss like any challenge is more mental that physical if it weren’t, then all the pills, positions and diet fads that have existed over the decades would have worked LONG TERM and PERMANENTLY but you and I both know they don’t work because you need to work hard at making changes and the mental adjustment. The question is are you ready for the challenge, for change for improvement and for turning all old ideas out of the door ?

Do I need any supplements? if so what do I specifically need?

The answer is YES  all of us do because the RDA’s set by the EU are based on the 70 year old requirement of the Second World War soldiers when life expectancy was considerably lower and food nutrition considerably higher . I would only recommend 100% potency products by internationally renowned USANA Health Sciences as they are guaranteed for quality, purity and accurate dosages . If we can naturally  nourish your cells you’ll be not only  fitter  but able to  combat infections and diseases  . . . that’s what healthy cells are designed to do

If you trust me with your  health please trust me with your nutrition which forms a huge part of that all round health . This is why I now give you a FREE 3 day sample (class) or 10 day sample (Premier 1-2-1 ) worth of the Essentials (Chelated Minerals &  Mega Anti Oxidants) for FREE so you can trial them at no cost to yourself to see how they work for you without chemicals

  1. amazing you’ll feel
  2. how well you’ll look to those around you
  3. how any medication you’re on becomes much more potent so your  GP will be reducing your doses
  4. how much energy you’ll have
  5. how infections or long term conditions shift and lessen even after just a few days

USANA Health Sciences are the No1  products in the world class athletes including Serena Williams, The Womens Tennis Association, Karina Bryant (2012 Olympic Judo Bronze Medalist) and British Rugby and FC’s choose to use: that means they are not paid to do so they CHOOSE to use these products. I can email you the current list of  UK and International teams and professionals who use USANA . Karina Bryant was at a USANA conference in June and said she who was using USANA secretly whilst with part of the Team GB 2012 as they were supplied with another inferior products which she never used and were still sitting in the boot of her car!!

After the sample I’ll be suggesting that you become Preferred Customers so you can purchase the products for yourself and your family (even children  . . . I’ve even used these on animals) at the lower rate I get them for instead of the retail price shown on my website.

Do I have to give up smoking and / or drinking for this to work?

The first client I taught in July 2011 continued to smoke daily and even binge drank in the first week yet she still lost measurable body fat in inches by the 12th session which she was delighted with ( I’m still waiting for her testimonial). Obviously she acknowledges that she would have lost even more had she not been smoking and binge drinking but that’s her decision to make.

This program is striving to re-introduce you to your own body and hormones which you’ve probably never done before so it’s new and it’s weird. Your daily journal will tell you what you’re mood is like, how certain foods make you feel good or bad, it’s about looking at your personal patterns to see what works for you long term. One size does not fit all so each of you will have totally unique ways of implementing the advice I give you that’s how flexible this program is for you as an individual .Obviously if you’re drinking and smoking it’s the equivalent of trying to have a meaningful conversation in a busy, noisy, crowded nightclub you just won’t understand or “hear” what is being said. Consider smoking and drinking as the noise, darkness and chaos of a nightclub and you trying to have a conversation with your hormones, how difficult are you going to make it for your hormones to be heard?

What if I’m on prescribed drugs or illegal drugs – do I need to inform my GP or drugs counsellor?


Yes I strongly recommend telling your GP, drugs counsellor and medical advisors about the ME program before you sign up, so that all of us are working with you simultaneously. I’d suggest giving them my business card which has my credentials and website on it so they can refer to that for information . I suggest notifying them because;

  1. I want your GP or drugs advisor to know that you are taking positive steps to improve yourself and your health – their additional support is valuable to you
  2. they will need to alter your medication as your become able to listen to your body so they may do additional health checks to make sure this is done on time
  3. they can give you extra counselling or mental support during your transitional days, when you’re more moody or upset, which happens as your hormones start to kick in

All the answers they need are either on my site or the ME USA site for them to go through if they need to but please do not ask them to call or email me until they’ve read my website fully ; I’m simply too busy to give information verbally which I have already collated extensively on my website

Will my food bills be higher?

80-90% of your fat loss success depends upon what and how you eat . Initially you may find you are purchasing more food as you’ll be eating more food per day than you do now but also you’ll be eating better quality food, fresh or frozen produce, fish, meat, vegetables and fruit with meals being tailor made and homemade by you as much as possible. Junk food and snacks are cheap because they’re made of bad quality off cuts or padded out with salt, sugar and additives even if you can’t taste them.

All foods can be sourced in all local outlets, supermarkets and markets so there is nothing that you won’t be able to purchase quickly and easily even if you’re on the run but the program will entail you to be thinking about and planning your meals in advance so you’re ready and prepared. Remember not all “healthy” foods will be suitable for your fat burning capability which is why the hormonal and dietary assessment I do for you should be with you all the time as it shows you what you can eat alot of , what you can have a little bit of and how to deal with your cravings if and when you get them

Organisation and careful consideration are the keys to your ME success but I continually give you  free advice via my facebook page which I’d recommend you check out https://www.facebook.com/SolariUKHealthandWellBeingExperts

What conditions have you taught?

I’m especially interested in working with people who have Type 2 Diabetes to reverse that metabolic and hormonal imbalance and also long term obese or dieters because the results for these particular groups will be astonishingly rapid. This is also why my Physical Questionnaires are as detailed as they are – I am only required to ask about issues in the last 6-12 months; I go back to childhood. This is more work for me as an instructor, but I find it’s a much more beneficial for my students.

I’ve taught people with the following issues and as we’re using your own ability and metabolism at your own pace with as much rest as you need, I see no medical or anatomical reason why any clients I’ve taught with the following conditions could not be successfully taught the ME progam with great results;

*Muscular Dystrophy *Scholiosis *Kyphosis *Rheumatism *Cancer (pre and post operative & non operative patients) *Arthritis *Spinal Injuries; prolapsed discs / compression
*Joint injuries/damage  *Hip & Knee Replacements *Metal Plating (back,ankles,feet,shoulders,hands) *Spinal narrowing *Fibromyalgia  *Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
*Hamstring Damage *Sciatic Nerve *Motor Neuron Disease * Sight & Hearing Issues *Tendonitis *Cardio Thoracic Patients (pre & post operative)
*Asthmatics*Diabetics * Hypertension/High & Low Blood Pressure *Crones Disease *Lupus Sufferers *Graves Disease *Multiple Sclorsis
*Repetitive Strain Injury *Insomnia *Depression *Obesity & Body Mass Issues *Pre & Post Natal *Anaemia / Sickle Cell Anaemia

It is always advised to seek the permission of your GP, Physio, midwife or any other medical consultant / practitioner you’re working with before joining any fitness classes. Please feel free to pass them my details if they’d like to contact me in person

What are the age limits ?

For fitness classes there is no lower or upper age limit set by legislation though I’d always recommend seeking the advice of your GP or consultant when starting exercise programs.  Children can do any of my classes for their well being or medical conditions though I do limit the use of heavy weights / resistance due to the maleable quality of their bone density. I would expect to have partental consent on all booking forms and when paying for anyone under the age of 16 to ensure that the parents approve of the work being done, though this is not currently required by law.

My specialist training for Elderly clients (YMCA) means that I can adapt exercises for their specific needs and my regular Criminal Records Bureau checks (CRB) means I have the additional approval to work with under 16’s & Special Needs clients. I am fully and regularly CRB checked (Criminal Records Bureau) so am fully approved to work with children of all ages, special needs adults and all learning groups. I have no problem being CRB checked for your own institution should you require it

Should I exercise if I’m tired or unwell?

No reputable exercise instructor will EVER advise working out when your fatigued or unwell. If you think about how dangerous it is to drive when you’re unwell or tired you can image that the compromised reflexes and concentration will cause accidents, the same is true of exercise. Though this seems to be common sense many people turn up to classes when hugely fatigued or ill and create more problems for themselves and the instructors teaching them. You get no credit for simply turning up, it’s the quality of the work you do that should be important to you.

Having said this, people who exercise and work hard are usually able to be just as focused and determined when they’re tired or unwell; I myself have continued with a full day of classes when I’d just severed my right hamstrings and dislocated my right hip (2006) so working out or teaching when injured or unwell with flu is not an issue for me. Exercising does detoxifies the body and is recommended when suffering with a hangover or a cold but only you can judge whether you have the temprament, stamina and determination of a semi-athlete to work effectively or whether skipping a session to recover properly would be better for you.

I’m injured – can I adapt the program or use other equipment / techniques?

ME is a scientifically proven program. If your injury does not allow you to lift dumbbells or bend your knees without agony, then you need to recover and only join my ME tuition when you can

ME exercise is NON ADAPTABLE meaning that some of you have asked if you can use different equipment or alternatives the answer to all of this is NO!! ME USA have spent years devising the eating and exercise programs to the absolute SECOND so if they thought other equipment was suitable they would have recommend it, they actually stress that we DO NOT use other techniques or equipment for their program . . .  so I never  digress from their specification

I’m not physically active – how will I cope?

All themore resaon to be builing up your stamina and strength so you can cope with every day activities and more .If you follow my demonstrations, ensure that you listen to my instructions and do not compete with my more advanced / well practiced people you’ll be setting yourself up for gradual consistent success.

Those who don’t do the above, or try to do exercises beyond what I advise you to do will sabotage your success and will set yourself up to fail. I’d rather work with someone who doesn’t do that as my time and space is limited

Can I join when I’m pregnant or just after birth?

Unless you have done ME with me before you pregnancy I’d say no because;

  1. we have no way of knowing your levels of ME specific fitness before your pregnancy
  2. your hormones are already being over worked and your fuel burner type will alter throughout the pregnancy – it’s simply too much for the body to deal with at one time.

During pregnancy your top priority should be nourishing and feeding your baby not losing fat after birth ( celebrities often have surgery straight after birth which is why they appear to bounce back into shape so quickly).

I’d recommend deferring the full ME program until at least 4 months after birth to allow your hormones to settle ( it can take 12- 18 months for hormones to go back to pre-pregnancy levels) , however you can start the ME sessions  WITHOUT the full  hormonal program 1 month after birth but with much lighter dumbbells. Discuss the program with your GP or midwife, for their support and give them my website for them to see if it’s suitable for you and what time they suggest is suitable for you to start

I don’t recognise / like / can’t sing along to the tunes you use for the sessions can you change them?

No, the music used is the original and official ME instructors music which was deliberately created by ME so that you would not be distracted by the tune or, use the beat of the songs to set the pace of your activities (that’s actually why instructors CD’s are so expensive because of these musical punctuations, beat transitions and continuity of play) . Unlike my Swiss Ball & Glider sessions where I deliberately use popular, usually Disco tunes, with ME the research done by ME USA over a 6 year period created original music that is purely motivational and totally non familiar. I will only ever use the official ME music for my classes because of the scientific thought they’ve taken to create it

When to call if I need additional information?
