Summer Shape-Up Plan to a Hot Body From CORE:

Burn Up to 1,000 Calories an Hour and Fuel Properly Post-Workout

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 18, 2013) -  Getting lean and strong for swimsuit season not only requires a fat-blasting workout plan, but also the proper nutrition to rebuild muscle and re-shape your body. The time of day that you work out also affects results. Studies show that exercising before breakfast burns 20% more fat when compared to exercising after breakfast.

The latest innovation from CORE:'s curated fitness programming is a 60-minute Boot Camp, led by world-renowned Zoomtion Fitness experts. This perfectly devised package emphasizes balance among the body's muscles, combining the latest training techniques with a post-workout power breakfast, created by Zoomtion's head trainer Josh Holland and CORE:'s Master Chef Bernard Liberatore. 

To properly repair muscle after exercising, the optimal ratio of nutritional elements, including carbohydrates, proteins and electrolytes, are required. Combining carbohydrates and protein within 30 minutes of exercise doubles the body's insulin response and replenishes glycogen stores. The CORE: post-workout breakfast menu was designed for this effect and features: 

  • Four grams of carbohydrates for every one gram of protein 
  • Key ingredients to sustain the body's boosted metabolism while controlling your appetite throughout the rest of the day 

CORE:'s Boot Camp and Breakfast program ensures maximum results in minimal time to radically transform how you look and feel. For its members aspiring to be the next Michael Phelps or Kelly Slater, CORE: is also offering swim and surf training with Zoomtion as part of its summer fitness programming.
