  METABOLIC RATE AND VO2 TESTING  
   
  WHO IT'S FOR:  
  Anyone looking for a way to measure how many calories they need a day, how to improve their fat burning potential, and increase their fitness levels.  
 
  WHAT IT'S ABOUT:  
  Two short tests to measure how many calories your body burns at rest and your body’s efficiency using oxygen during exercise. With this information we create the optimal training program for you.  
 
  WHAT PEOPLE THINK:  
  After following a (slow!) 6 week training plan, focusing on increasing my aerobic threshold, I can run faster at a lower heart rate! I did my follow up test, and now my aerobic threshold is 120, burning 375 calories an hour (I now burn 297 at 100 bpm), and my anaerobic threshold is now 160bpm burning 761 calories an hour! I love being able to run feeling strong and comfortable - it actually makes me want to get out there!

  Find your optimal calorie
and heart rate zones!

 

The Metabolic Rate test will tell you exactly how many calories you need a day at rest and it estimates your caloric needs for daily activity and exercise. It will also tell you if your metabolism is slow, average or fast. It is important to know your caloric zones if you are trying to lose weight or if you want to gain muscle mass.

The VO2 test will tell you exactly where your heart rate should be when exercising based on your goals. It will define at least three heart rate zones: aerobic or fat burning zone; anaerobic or cardio zone; and your redline or speed zone.

It is important to know YOUR specific zones so you can train your body to be more efficient with the oxygen you breathe. Whether you dread running or are an athlete in training, training according to your heart rate is more efficient than training according to a certain speed or distance. Not only will you feel better when you are done, but you will be preventing injuries and over-training. Start training in your zones that will give you the most benefit!

Call or email for rates and availability, 24 hr cancellation policy applies. (The VO2 test is not recommended for those on heart medication)
