Resting Metabolic Rate
Measuring Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) helps when constructing personalized weight loss programs and will offer you a more effective way to manage caloric intake.
Everyone's metabolism and caloric needs are different. Your body's metabolism is affected by factors such as genetics, age, gender, height, and activity. After our test, you will learn:
How many calories you can consume without gaining weight
What caloric deficit is required to lose weight
Your personal metabolic requirements
How many calories from exercise should be included in a balanced weight loss program
How many calories are burned from fat compared to carbohydrates
Exercise Metabolic Test
During this test, you are exercising, whether it’s on a bike, a treadmill, or an elliptical. It measures your heart rate, and also measuring how much oxygen you are bringing in, and how much carbon dioxide you are exhaling to determine at what heart rate you are burning a good percentage of fat, and at what heart rate you are no longer using fat as a fuel and your body is burning 100% carbohydrate.
