VO2 Based Metabolic Fitness Testing allows you to eliminate any guesswork from your training program, maximize your training time, pinpoint your strengths, weaknesses and assist you with achieving your goals.
A VO2 max test finds the body’s maximum ability to consume oxygen, an indication of physical fitness. Alone, that number may not mean much to anybody other than athletes looking for bragging rights amongst their buddies. However, from that number we can estimate your lactate threshold—the point at which muscle fatigue sets in, forcing you to slow down—determine personalized heart rate training zones, and tell you how many and what type of calories, carbs or fat, you’re burning within those zones.
The resting metabolic rate test determines how many calories your body burns at rest, which will help you decide how many calories you need to eat every day to lose, maintain, or gain weight.
With an assessment, you get a training program that is based specifically on the data that is YOU. Your resting metabolic rate. Your required calories. Your calories burned. Your fuel composition. Your base heart rate. Your threshold heart rate. Your fat-burning efficiency.
