Metabolic Testing

Our metabolic tests are designed to more accurately estimate caloric expenditure, both at rest and during activity. Each test includes a detailed analysis of results how to apply them towards each client’s individual goal. Being able to accurately estimate how many calories you are burning is a valuable component in any plan to lose, maintain, or gain weight. 

Resting Metabolic Rate

$50

The basis for any metabolic evaluation, the Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) test estimates the number of calories burned at rest to determine baseline caloric needs.  It also provides a measure of fat and carbohydrate utilization.

Exercise Energy Expenditure

$150

The Energy Expenditure test measures how many calories you actually burn at different exercise intensities. This will allow for a more accurate determination of total caloric expenditure during exercise. The test also measures at metabolic efficiency, to determine how much fat and how much carbohydrate are being utilized during exercise.  Individualized training zones and an exercise consultation are included to address specific, individual goals.

Combine the Energy Expenditure and Resting Metabolic measurement for a more accurate measure of your daily calorie needs.

 

Metabolic Efficiency

$230 for the inital evaluation. $175 for subsequent tests, or $150 without a training consult.

The ultimate test for the endurance athlete, whether you are an Ironman triathlete, ultra runner, or double century/brevet rider. The metabolic efficiency tests combines oxygen consumption and lactate measurments to give you valuable insight into your endurance capacity. The test looks specifically at low to moderate effort levels, pinpointing endurance training and competition paces, as well as your metabolic efficiency (fat utilization) and fueling needs (carbohydrate replenishment). Get your training and eating strategies on the right track.  Also a great test for any endurance athlete in base building phase of thier training.
