REMOVE THE GUESSWORK FROM TRAINING AND NUTRITION

Discover your unique daily calorie requirements and establish your optimum heart rate training zones for burning fat, building endurance and boosting performance with Metabolix testing.

Understanding how your metabolism works - at rest and during activity - is extremely important for anyone looking to improve their health, fitness or performance. Our selection of assessments enable us to “look under the hood” and analyse how efficiently - or inefficiently - your engine functions, providing a detailed view of your metabolic profile, personalised calorie requirements and optimal heart rate training zones.

THE METABOLIX ACTIVE METABOLIC ASSESSMENT

 

TRAIN WITH PRECISE PERSONALISATION

 

Many people are inefficient exercisers with little understanding of what heart rate, intensity or duration would best help them achieve their goals. They train at their own pace, repeating the same routine week after week - this style of monotonous training not only fails to deliver results, it could actually be doing more harm than good.

 

Metabolix uses physiological thresholds to demarcate training zones. This is widely considered the most advanced and accurate method of establishing personalised training zone intensity - creating a workout experience unlike any other.

WHAT ARE THRESHOLDS?

 

Thresholds identify points where physiological changes occur in the body during activity - these thresholds provide an accurate indication of cardiovascular fitness and enable us to determine personalised training zones unique to you and your individual physiology. The Active Metabolic Assessment reveals the exact points at which your Aerobic Threshold, Anaerobic Threshold, FatMax, VO2 Max and Max Heart Rate thresholds are detected, providing the unique anchor points on which your personalised training zones are based.

GET IN THE YOUR ZONE

 

Everybody is different and every body is different - determining your personalised training zone intensities is an essential requirement of any successful training regime. Exercising at too high an intensity can result in overtraining, alternatively, exercising at too low an intensity may not produce the required load to achieve your desired training objective.

 

Whether you want to burn fat, build endurance or boost performance, using Metabolix FIT Zones™ to guide your workouts ensures that every training session you complete is conducted at the optimal intensity to achieve maximum results.

ABOUT THE TEST

 

WHAT IS IT? The Active Metabolic Assessment is a simple graded exercise test used to establish cardiovascular fitness, the amount of calories - fat and carbohydrates - burned during activity, and the optimal training zone intensities required to build endurance, burn fat and boost performance.

WHO IS IT FOR? This assessment is ideal for anyone looking to establish their current level of cardiovascular fitness, discover how their body metabolises fat and carbohydrates during activity, and reveal the optimal training zone intensities required to burn fat and improve specific areas of aerobic fitness. 

HOW DOES IT WORK? The Active Metabolic Assessment commences at a moderate intensity and the speed - on a treadmill - or resistance - on a stationary bicycle - is increased at one minute intervals until you reach maximum effort and are no longer able to continue. During the test our state of the art, medical grade laboratory equipment, measures your physiological response to activity and reveals the exact points at which your Aerobic Threshold, Anaerobic Threshold, FatMax, VO2 Max and Max Heart Rate are detected.

WHY IS IT USEFUL? Metabolic thresholds provide an accurate indication of cardiovascular fitness and enable us to determine personalised heart rate training zones unique to you and your individual physiology. From elite athletes to individuals completely fresh to fitness, this test provides you with all the information required to ensure that your workouts are as effective and efficient as possible.

DATA OBTAINED: Aerobic Threshold, Anaerobic Threshold, FatMax, VO2 Max, Max Heart Rate, Personalised Training Zones.

WHAT DO I GET? Following your assessment you will receive a comprehensive breakdown of your test results along with the Metabolix FIT Guide™ containing your personalised training zones and detailed instructions on how best to implement them.

THE METABOLIX RESTING METABOLIC ASSESSMENT

 

NUTRITION PERSONALISED TO YOUR PHYSIOLOGY

 

Your metabolism is as unique as your fingerprint and is influenced by a myriad of physiological, environmental, and genetic factors including; body composition, stress, activity, fitness level and diet. Your metabolism is also dynamic, changing over time, both positively and negatively, in response to changes in those variables.

 

Without a metabolic assessment to accurately measure your resting metabolism, we must rely on out-dated equations to establish your daily calorie requirements - all of which, unfortunately, have a significant margin of error. In order to establish your optimal caloric requirements we must measure how efficiently - or inefficiently - your metabolism functions at rest.

DISCOVER YOUR OPTIMAL ENERGY BALANCE

 

The Resting Metabolic Assessment provides an accurate indication of how many calories you require to lose, maintain or gain weight, enabling us to determine personalised energy requirements unique to you and your individual metabolism. Understanding how many calories you need is essential for any successful weight management programme. It is also important to establish your resting metabolic rate to ensure you are consuming enough calories to sufficiently fuel your workouts and optimise recovery.

 

ABOUT THE TEST

 

WHAT IS IT? The Resting Metabolic Assessment is a non-invasive test that measures the respiratory exchange ratio of inspired oxygen and expired carbon dioxide, to identify precisely how many calories you require to lose, maintain or gain weight.

HOW DOES IT WORK? The assessment is performed in a relaxed, seated position. During the test our state of the art, medical grade laboratory equipment, measures your metabolism, revealing the precise amount of calories you require to function while at rest.

WHO IS IT FOR? The Resting Metabolic Assessment is ideal for anyone looking to make adjustments to their weight or improve performance fuelling strategies.

WHY IS IT USEFUL? Understanding your resting metabolic rate will allow you to customise your diet around your specific goals and needs. It can screen for a slowed metabolism - explaining frustrated attempts to lose weight in the past - and reveal changes in your metabolic rate during the weight loss process - preventing frustrating plateaus.

DATA OBTAINED: Resting metabolic rate. Daily calorie requirements.

WHAT DO I GET? Following your assessment you will receive a detailed report revealing the precise amount of calories you are burning at rest. This will provide accurate guidance on how many calories you should be consuming in order to lose, maintain or gain weight.
