You are unique, just like everyone else. So is your metabolism, and it is actually something you can change. New Leaf measures the way you turn calories into energy, and provides programs to help your body measurably improve the way it burns fat and carbs.
ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS WITH OUR NEW LEAF WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMS
The Aberdeen Family YMCA offers a unique and powerfully accurate weight loss program incorporating the latest in exercise science and technology. Our New Leaf training program will give you an individualized 12-week program so you:
Know how many calories your body needs.
Know how long and hard you should exercise.
Know how to combine nutrition, exercise and the time you have available to reach your goals of gaining, losing, or maintaining weight.
We help you train to boost your metabolism. With an easy-to-follow road map, our goal is to make workouts efficientby training you at heart rates where you will be burning more fat than carbohydrates. This also makes you less sore the day after your workouts. Who doesn't want that?

We provide numerous training programs to help you achieve superior results and give you a competitive edge.
WHAT DOES A NEW LEAF ASSESSMENT ENTAIL?
New Leaf offers two assessments. The first measures your resting metabolic rate (RMR). The second assessment measures your metabolic rate during exercise. This is where you’ll learn how many calories your body burns while exercising; whether those calories come mainly from fat, carbs, or a combination of both; and at what intensity level you burn calories most efficiently. (It takes a little less than an hour of your time to do the assessments.)
With an assessment, you get a training program that is based specifically on the data that is YOU. Your resting metabolic rate. Your required calories. Your calories burned. Your fuel composition. Your base heart rate. Your threshold heart rate. Your fat-burning efficiency. That’s what makes the New Leaf metabolic assessment your sure path to success!
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE ASSESSMENTS?
You will come in for a one-hour results meeting to go over your assessments, review your new 12-week exercise program, and caloric recommendation. At the end of 12- weeks, we recommend getting reassessed to see how your heart rate zones and metabolism has changed by following the program.
