A VO2 MAX test is the best fitness assessment tool available to accurately identify appropriate training intensities specific to your fitness goals.
Optimal Training Zone
Each person has an optimal training zone, sometimes called target heart rate. Exercising at different levels of intensity will meet different fitness goals. Some intensities burn more fat, some increase endurance, and some focus on strengthening your heart.
The VO2max test measures your precise target heart rate based on anaerobic threshold. We then calculate your unique Target Intensity Zones. These zones give you the precise heart rates necessary to optimize each level of exercise and maximize your results.
Whether your goal is weight loss, cardio fitness, or improved athletic performance, let us customize your training with a VO2max test. Contact us for further information or to schedule a test.
RMR (resting metabolic rate)
How can I benefit from a Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Test?
Your RMR or resting metabolic rate represents the calories your body uses to maintain vital body functions (heart rate, brain function, breathing). In simple terms, it is the number of calories a person would burn if awake, but at rest, all day without activity or exercise.
The RMR test is a simple test lasting 5-20 minutes which involves breathing into a disposable mouthpiece while your oxygen consumption is measured. The higher your resting metabolic rate, the more calories you burn. This test is a great way to measure the effectiveness of your current nutrition and exercise program. No more averages or guessing about how many calories you should consume.
Your results include the following:
- How many calories you burn at rest.
- Rating of your metabolism as normal, slow, or fast.
- Guidelines to assist you in reaching your goal weight.
Please note that this test requires a 4 hour fast and avoiding exercise prior to the test.
