The MAF Foundations e-learning course is designed for anyone who values their health and fitness to understand their body and optimize their performance to get the most out of life.
When I first set out to share the MAF Method, I knew that one of the cornerstones of its efficacy would be found in helping athletes understand that personalization is key to its success. What I hadn’t anticipated was the way in which people of all fitness levels, backgrounds, and aspirations would be driven to understand the method at a deeper level.
Over the years it became apparent that followers of the MAF Method (of all athletic levels) have a thirst for the knowledge and strategies that I’ve been applying with some of the world’s best athletes, beyond the calculation of the MAF heart rate.
