"Understanding how your body works is extremely important for anyone looking to improve their health, fitness and performance. Our specialist assessments analyse how efficiently your body functions at rest and during activity, providing a detailed view of your metabolic profile, personalised caloric requirements and optimal training zone intensities".
ACTIVE METABOLIC ASSESSMENT
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 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.
RESTING METABOLIC ASSESSMENT
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. Respiratory Quotient.
WHAT DO I GET? Following your assessment you will receive a detailed report revealing the precise amount of calories and ratio of fat/carbohydrate you are burning at rest. This will provide accurate guidance on how many calories you should be consuming and what what macronutrient ratio to use in order to lose, maintain or gain weight.
