Assesment Options:

Resting Metabolic Rate - Determines how many calories one's body burns at rest. This data enables one to determine how much fuel or calories are needed to consume in order to achieve set goals.  Whether it be losing weight or feeling stronger at the end of an event.

  • $125

Standard (AeT / AT / VO2) - Determines anaerobic (AT) threshold and peak VO2; AT is basically defined as the point where your body turns from a fat burning machine to a carbohydrate burning machine.  AT is also the point where your body's uptake of oxygen is exceeded by the production of CO2.  This test also determines Aerobic Threshold (AeT); it is at this point where one is at peak aerobic efficiency. Individual heart rate training zones, based on one's physiology, are discovered and provided. 

  • $170 (Bike or Run) 
  • add steady state analysis - $125

Standard & Resting Metabolic Rate Combo - This test determines the calories utilized within a 24 hour period.  Combined with the AeT / AT / VO2 test an athlete will know exactly how many calories are needed in a day to keep the engine properly fueled, rested and ready for peak performance. 

  • $200 (Bike or Run)
  • add steady state analysis - $125

Standard & Resting Metabolic Rate Combo with Pace or Watts - All tests include identification of personal training zones.  Some athletes like to maximize their investment and know exactly how they're performing at certain workloads or paces. Based upon your physiology, individual power training zones, or paces, are extrapolated over a personalized grid providing the potential for highly focused training.

  • $250 (Bike or Run)
  • add steady state analysis - $125

Standard & Resting Metabolic Rate Combo - Bike & Run - optimized service for triathletes.
