METABOLIC TESTING

The metabolic testing we provide was previously only available to elite and Olympic athletes. Both Aerobic Base (AB) and Anaerobic Threshold (AT) are determined, and applied to personalized heart rate training zones. The results of this test will give you the scientific information to train and reach all of you fitness, health, and/or performance goals. These scientifically based heart rate zones are based on your body’s ability to work efficiently. By using fat as 50% or more of your energy source you can sustain the exercise for longer periods of time and walk away with more energy, and less exhaustion.

Athletic attire is required for testing. You should be well fueled and hydrated before you test. We recommend not eating a heavy meal within 90 minutes of testing. Heavy exercise should be avoided for 24 hours prior to testing.

Your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is measured as the number of calories your body utilizes per day at rest. Having your RMR directly measured provides you with the most precise assessment of your caloric needs. The Price of a RMR test is $150. This includes your own personal reusable mask for retesting and an explanation of the testing numbers. If you would like to meet with our Registered Dietician for meal plans, nutrition counseling, and weight loss advise we have packaged together an option for you. For an additional $170 you can meet with our Registered Dietician for 2 sessions.
