The MAF Method is a philosophy I developed over the course of 40 years of scientific research and clinical practice to help individuals of all ages, athletic abilities, physical issues, and personal goals reach their human performance potential. I have embraced this imperative ethical principle throughout my career and encouraged people to adopt it as well.
Both health and fitness are requirements for optimal human performance, but we should not sacrifice one for the other.
Unfortunately, health continues to be sacrificed. Rates of poor health and impaired fitness continue to rise worldwide. Junk food continues to feed the overfat epidemic, workout plans increase injury, and remedies for various ailments only address symptoms while ignoring the cause of the problem.
In some cases this imbalance can lead to death. This occurs because our society teaches us to treat superficial symptoms instead of searching out the underlying cause of the problem. MAF provides the guidance to help people engage effectively with this complex individual journey.
The MAF Method offers a variety of tools to assess your individual health situation, track progress, and create helpful feedback. It helps you personalize your approach to improve nutrition, balance exercise, and manage physical, biochemical, and mental-emotional stress. Above all, it teaches you to weave these components together to achieve better results. MAF is an open system that can be used by itself, integrated into any approach you may be currently using, or help you start all over again.
And yet, a key to achieving optimal human performance is unlocking something that resides in each of us — the potential to burn high levels of fat for fuel.
This in turn leads to better health, better physical and mental energy, and greater performance. Only by honest assessment and by taking control of your own destiny can you become truly healthy, fit, and enjoy a high quality of life.
Relying on larger proportions of fat correlates to higher physical and mental vigor, improved health, and better all-around performance. But relying more on sugar is associated with indicators of reduced health: low energy, increased body fat and weight, less endurance for daily living, and lower physical fitness. However, a few unifying principles can serve most people: Beat Sugar Addiction One of the most common causes of reduced fat-burning and diminished health is the consumption of sugar and other refined carbohydrates.
These junk foods have become a staple in the diets of billions of people — but addiction makes us keep eating them. In fact, a single meal or snack of sugar or refined carbohydrate can not only turn off fat-burning and significantly disturb hormones, but also switch on the genes that cause disease.
The MAF Method employs various strategies to successfully eliminate these foods from the diet. Without doing so, one may become aerobically deficient — a common syndrome associated with fatigue, increased weight and body fat, reduced immune function, and hormonal imbalance. Physical injury is also widespread — slow-twitch, fat-burning aerobic muscle fibers support joints, bones, and soft tissues, and assist the fast-twitch, sugar-burning anaerobic fibers in their functions.
By engaging the full spectrum of aerobic muscle fibers, improvements in the heart and lungs, increased circulation, and better brain function also occur. MAF provides simple exercise guidelines based on individualized heart rates that work for everyone from sedentary individuals to professional athletes. Tracking the progress of the aerobic system helps predict when strength and speed workouts can produce healthy gains.
Control Chronic Inflammation Another important aspect of the MAF Method is addressing chronic inflammation , a very common condition that leads to reduced fitness and even serious illness. Most diseases begin in a seemingly benign way, without symptoms or signs. The chemical imbalances that trigger this problem are easy to control with diet and lifestyle.
In doing so, many problems like muscle imbalance, weak bones, injuries, and even illness and chronic diseases, can be prevented. Manage Stress Learning how to avoid the ravages of physical, biochemical and mental-emotional stress is an important part of MAF. Since the human body and brain has a unique system designed to manage stress, learning how to enlist this natural mechanism is essential.
How can this method offer a personalized, truly individual approach for all people? Through self-evaluation, with the help of questionnaires and self-testing, and learning about the inner workings of the body, individuals are guided through the simple process of determining their particular needs in all key areas of health and fitness, from diet and nutrition to exercise and the regulation of stress.
The end result is improved human performance. This translates into better brain function, increased endurance, avoidance of illness and disease, unlimited energy — and for athletes, continuous strength, speed, and competitive improvements without injury. In summary, the MAF Method is not a cookbook plan, but rather an individualized approach for health-conscious, active people to incorporate into their lifestyle in order to develop their natural talents for years to come.
The program takes you through the process of using specific and detailed assessment tools and guidelines to evaluate and manage your nutrition, exercise, and stress levels to achieve optimal health and fitness.

What if you could get faster and leaner without killing yourself? What is Low Heart Rate Training? The Maffetone Method helps you take charge of your own health and fitness—and succeed. Every animal on earth knows how to be optimally healthy, but humans have gone astray; getting back your instincts and intuition is one of the benefits of this process. I think this style of running benefits tremendously from a Maffetone Method coach.
