What is Metabolic Testing?

Metabolic testing is a form of physiological testing that provides us the data necessary to make personalized decisions about your fitness training and nutrition programs.

 

Through metabolic testing we gain a better understanding of how the key systems in your body are working together (or not) during training and endurance-based activities. From this data we can identify areas in need of improvement and come up with informed strategies to make you successful.

VO2 Max & Metabolic Analysis

VO2 stands for volume of oxygen consumption and provides important information about how you breathe and your metabolism. Since the body needs oxygen to create energy for all bodily movement and exercise, the better your body is at delivering oxygen to your vital organs and muscles and subsequently utilizing this oxygen, the more find-tuned your body will be. This efficiency at delivery and utilization at the muscle with allow you to increase your more efficiently increase your strength, power, and endurance. We calculate your VO2 max, which is an indicator of your fitness level. 

 

What you’ll get  out of a VO2 test:

  • Your VO2 Max score 

  • Your maximal heart rate (at 10/10 RPE)

  • Aerobic health and the maximum oxygen you can use per kg per minute

  • How much fat and carbohydrates (CHO) you burn at each intensity

  • How many calories you burn per minute/hour at each intensity

  • Respiratory and cardiovascular fitness insights

  • Training zones customized to your specific physiology and sport/activity

  • An understanding of your specific physiological limiters (cardiovascular, respiratory, metabolic, neuro)

  • Exercise routine to train your physiological limitation(s) identified

  • How best to move forward to reach your goals
