Here are some success stories and testimonials from several clients who have achieved amazing weight loss, sports performance and overall fitness results in only 12 weeks of using the Aeroscan training programs at all our partner locations across UAE.

UAE Army officially uses Aeroscan to train students

“The Aeroscan helps us to see the training patterns and fitness level of the students. And also allows us to give them better feedback to their own training and to their trainers.”

“For the UAE military we have an expedition team that will climb some of the higher peaks like the Kilimandjaro. The Aeroscan will be the testing we will use to help them prepare for that expedition.”

I Have Achieved an Astounding Weight Loss of 23 kilos in 4 months

Results Achieved:

  • Total weight loss: 23kg in 4 months
  • More fat burned at every speed
  • Heart rate dropped by 10-12bpm
  • Stamina increased by 1.5kmph

“I was weighing 122 kg and my health was severely at risk. My diet was completely wrong and I knew I wasn’t exercising at the right intensity. I desperately needed a structured weight loss program.

AeroFit was the best way to get started – it gave me accurate and individualized data about my metabolism and a weight loss program based purely on facts. I did fast walking, stationary biking and some weight training, and did it at the right intensity level as advised by AeroFit, where I burned the most calories per hour that was possible, based on my metabolic rate.

When I came back for my re-scan after 4 months, I had lost an astounding 23 kg. My heart rate dropped by 10-12 beats per minute at every speed and I was burning much more fat than ever before. Since I am much lighter now, I am able to run at a higher speed, about 1.5kmph faster than before, without putting pressure on my joints. Very soon, I will be able to achieve my target weight. The valuable insights gained through AeroFit will benefit me in managing my weight life-long, and I will be sure to come back for an aeroscan every 3 months to lose a few more kilos and then maintain it“

The Most Effective Way to Lose Weight

Results Achieved:

  • Total weight loss: 5kg in 3 months
  • Fat burn rate almost doubled
  • Heart rate reduced at every speed
  • Running speed & stamina increased by 1.5 kmph
  • Reduced 10 km running time by 10 minutes

“I had always been a slow runner and hated doing cardio. Simply doing weight training was not helping me lose weight. The aeroscan showed me how to improve my running stamina and be able to burn more fat in each session by training in the right zone. By running at the right intensity, I was able to run for much longer and burn more calories. Now, I really enjoy running and biking much more than before. I have a very balanced fitness regime. I do about 3-4 hours of cardio per week which gives me the maximum calorie burn rate per hour and 2-3 hours of weight training to tone & shape my figure. I am now slimmer and fitter than ever before.“
Mohana P.

A great weight loss program that should be made available to everyone

“The aeroscan is an instrumental tool for me. It is quick, easy, informative and a great value for the money. I have recommended it to all my colleagues and will gladly test again. I have struggled to lose weight, and the test showed me that I need to focus the same amount of work in different areas. I think it's a great program that should be made available to men and women, particularly those 40-50 years in age.”
Mike T.

My son is making incredible progress in his aerobic fitness and body shape after the aeroscan

"My son is making incredible progress with some noticeable differences in his aerobic fitness and body shape already, and am looking forward to seeing his improvements on his next scan.

I have been extolling the virtues of the aeroscan testing among my colleagues, as I can clearly see the evidence."

Training slower, racing faster

Results Achieved:

  • Marathon pb of 3:19:21 compared to 3:28:39
  • For the 1500m was 40 seconds faster than last year

“Last weekend we had yet more examples of runners who have found that by training slower they are actually getting pbs over race distances. Before the Edinburgh Marathon Dave Thurley went through an AeroFit recommended training plan of running slower. He dropped his LSD pace to 5:45 / km. Up to the end of March his average time for 2 laps of Safa Park was 30:15. Since then his average time dropped to 38:06 as he deliberately slowed down. Last weekend in Edinburgh he got a marathon pb of 3:19:21 compared to his Dubai marathon time of 3:28:39“

“My time for the 1500m on Monday was 40 seconds faster than last year, which preceded my first AeroFit Scan.“

An improvement of 44 secs/km over the last three weeks

Results Achieved:

  • Session 1: Average speed 7:08 min/km
  • Session 2, one week later: Average speed 6:54 min/km
  • Session 3, one week later: Average speed 6:24 min/km

“Hi AeroFit!

I thought I would share my progress over the last 3 weeks.

One aspect to bear in mind is that my nutrition is great with virtually no processed carbs or refined sugar. I am also going to the gym for strength training. Finally one session a week is for speed intervals.

Please see above my average speed for 3 sessions over 10kms and virtually the same route, using my 147bpm personalised limit for my runs.

This equates to an improvement of 44 secs/km since the 11th of Feb. Needless to say I am over the moon.

I am however not suggesting that the improvement will continue at the same rate but this is great progress and validates that the method works. I will be working religously on the programme and look forward to re-testing myself with you in May.

Cheers and many thanks for your guidance.“

HAIDER KHAN, Fitness Runner

Was seduced again by the usual ‘harder, faster, stronger’ type of anaerobic sessions...

Results Achieved:

  • Had time to reflect and will be making my first trip to Aerofit in the coming weeks

“You made a comment last week about people ‘doubting your training methods’ but I’ve been watching with interest as I did a lot of reading about aerobic training over the summer and made a start with it but was seduced again by the usual ‘harder, faster, stronger’ type of anaerobic sessions. After pulling out of the Donut with a recurring Achilles problem I’ve had time to reflect and will be making my first trip to Aerofit in the coming weeks before building up from the bottom…“

Runner, Dubai Road Runners Club

After 8-10 weeks of this kind of training, I felt really strong, fit and light-footed

Results Achieved:

  • Fat metabolism improved at higher intensities
  • Basic training zone extended by 1.5 kmph
  • The first 10k race time improved by 2 minutes compared to the 2011 race
  • Abu Dhabi Half Marathon was a PB with 4 minutes off the previous PB, and 8 minutes faster than last year’s Abu Dhabi Half

“I did my first aeroscan in July this year, after the racing season. I was curious what it would tell me to do to improve my speed and endurance. I figured that over the summer, with no immediate races and specific training programs on the agenda, I could follow any recommendations. By then, I had already heard that many people were recommended to run slow in order to increase their speed. I have always believed in that theory. However, since the aeroscan recommendations are directly based on your individual metabolism, some people may also be recommended to run faster. This is what makes the aeroscan so personalized and accurate, as the results and recommendations vary from person to person.

The first aeroscan showed that I had only a moderate fat metabolism. In order to run faster for longer (e.g., achieve a 3:20 marathon time) I should increase my fat metabolism. I was told to run at 65-70% of maximum heart rate (they gave me actual heart rate values) for 75-90 minutes at least three times per week. The slow running suited me well during the hot summer months. In order to stay within the HR limit, I had to go as slow as 6:40-7:00min/km. The slow pace runs needed very little recovery time and I was able to run three or four 75-90 minute sessions per week. Fact was that I spent a lot of time on my feet although my mileage was pretty low (due to the slow pace).

The second aeroscan was about 3 months after the first. It confirmed that my fat metabolism has increased, especially at low and medium paces. I could now do my LSD runs at a faster pace/higher HR and include more interval/speed training. After 8-10 weeks of this kind of training, I felt really strong, fit and light-footed. The interval training seemed to be getting easier and easier. The first races after the summer were already proving that I was getting faster.

RACE TIME IMPROVEMENTS: My time at the Iftar Challenge 5k improved by 1 minute compared to 2011. The first 10k race time improved by 2 minutes compared to the 2011 race. Last week’s Abu Dhabi Half Marathon was a PB with 4 minutes off the previous PB, and 8 minutes faster than last year’s Abu Dhabi Half. I am pretty confident I can run the Dubai Marathon 2013 in 3:20.

BENEFITS OF THE aeroscan: The aeroscan gives an accurate picture of your fitness level and comprehensive insight into what happens in our bodies when exercising. Combining this knowledge with specific training will result in major improvements.“

ANJA SCHWERIN, Endurance Runner

Main advantage of the AeroFit Scan is that it gives accurate information with respect to the training zones best suited for you

Results Achieved:

  • Fat metabolism improved at all levels
  • Max measured V02 increased by 4.6 ml/min/kg
  • Basic training zone extended by 1.0 kmph
  • Stamina training zone extended by 0.2 kmph

“I first attended a seminar from AeroFit in February. The theory that you needed to train slow to build up fat burning efficiency made a lot of sense. Norrie Williamson, my coach, had been giving the same advice as did all of the online magazines. There many examples of Dubai runners who had dramatically improved their times by going through a regime of training slow. In my own experience, my two best marathons had been after I had involuntarily followed a period of slow pace running due to returning from injury.

The results of the first scan were much as I had expected. Fat burning efficiency fell off sharply as I increased pace limiting the pace at which I could run a marathon. My confidence in the results was reinforced when I compared them with 3 other runners.

I kept my times for running a lap of Safa Park to > 17 minutes until mid-October. Then one night I tried to go fast and recorded a time of 14:22, my second fastest time for 12 years. I decided it was time for a re-scan. The results showed a significant improvement in the fat burning efficiency and a small improvement in the aerobic / anaerobic threshold. My predicted marathon time had improved by 20 minutes. Last Saturday I improved my time still further with a 14:10 lap of Safa Park.

The main advantage of the AeroFit Scan is that it gives accurate information with respect to the training zones best suited for you and a periodic re-assessment gives feedback on your improvement.“

GRAHAM RAFFERTY, Master Endurance Runner

I will definitely keep using the aeroscan to check the progress in my sports fitness

Results Achieved:

  • Fat burning zone increased by 1 km on the run & 30 watts on the bike
  • Speed & stamina increased by 15 watts on the bike
  • Heart rate dropped at every speed
  • Finished his first Iron Man Triathlon in the Top 10% of his age group

“By doing two combined bike and run aeroscans several months apart, I was able to focus my training sessions for my weakest Iron Man disciplines and fine tune my race power, pace (speed) and heart rate. After a base training phase I had my first scan, which pointed to a relative weakness in bike fitness compared to my run fitness. Based on the scan results I concentrated the next few months of bike build training phase on a specific power output zone (in Watts). Using the bike power meter I could target the power zone precisely whether training indoors or outdoors. If I hadn't had a power meter I could have used the heart rate results from the bike scan instead. For my running target zones I used both the heart rate and pace results from the aeroscan.

Closer to my Iron Man race I had another scan, which showed significant improvements in the targeted areas. This scan also gave me the Iron Man race target power zone for the bike and the pace zone for the run. I had a great Iron Man race as a result finishing in the top 10 percent of my age group in my first race. I will definitely keep using the aeroscan to check my training progress, the areas I should focus on next and to plan my Iron Man race targets.“

Finn Z.

I am planning on keep on working on the areas the aeroscan shows I need to improve

Results Achieved:

  • Fat metabolism doubled
  • Heart rate dropped at every speed
  • Fat burning zone increased by 3 km on the run & 50 watts on the bike
  • Speed & stamina increased by 1 km on the run & 60 watts on the bike
  • Achieved his best finishing time in an Ironman Triathlon

“My first aeroscan identified my strength and weakness both on the run and the bike. Training in the correct HR zones made me more efficient in my strengths and saw an improvement in the weak areas.

The second aeroscan confirmed this and I was now able to race an Ironman in the correct HR zones and felt great throughout with a serious PB as a result. I am planning on keep on working on the areas the aeroscan shows I need to improve and have more aeroscans in the future to confirm that I am on the right track to becoming more efficient and faster.“

Jeroen V. C.

AeroFit gave me an excellent understanding of my training zones

Results Achieved:

  • Heart rate dropped at every speed
  • Fat burning zone extended by 1 km
  • Running speed & stamina increased by 0.5 km

“AeroFit gave me a better understanding of my optimal training zones and was an excellent complement to my triathlon coach’s constant encouragement to train at low heart rate aerobic levels.

The AeroFit team was extremely helpful throughout the process and made it both easy to understand and practical to apply.“

Mark S.

It’s amazing how much the aeroscan has taught me about how my body functions

Results Achieved:

  • Fat metabolism doubled
  • Resting heart rate dropped by 11 beats per minute
  • Fat burning zone extended by 4 km
  • Running speed & stamina increased by 1 km
  • Reduced half marathon finishing time by five minutes

“With some fitness tests, you have to wear the breathing mask for the whole duration. The mouth piece for the aeroscan is lighter than the norm and you only have to wear it for short periods. This makes the aeroscan more comfortable and more similar to your usual training parameters.

My results have given me new training goals and I am sticking to the guidelines. I am looking forward to my next aeroscan to see how much my performance will have improved.

It’s amazing how much I have learned about how my body functions at different running speeds. By implementing this knowledge into my training, my racing should go from strength to strength.“

Jane W.

AeroFit training plans will give you more results and benefits from your training sessions

"Here in Dubai, and indeed many places, we’re pretty time poor … work, family, friends, play and play and play (!) often get in the way but with the results derived from the aeroscan, AeroFit claims that you can get the most out of your training sessions and enjoy fast and measurable improvements."
Tori L.

I have taken 11 minutes off my half-marathon time

"I have a new half marathon PB at Emirates Hills Half Marathon taking 11-mins off my PB last year.

Having taken the Aerofit Tz1 philosophy and proven going slow really does make you quicker!"
