Assesment Options

RESTING METABOLIC RATE$125

Determines how many calories your body burns at rest. This data enables you to determine how much fuel or calories you need to consume in order to achieve set goals, whether your goal is to lose weight or to feel stronger at the end of an event.

STANDARD (AET / AT / VO2)$170

Determines anaerobic threshold (AT) 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 you are at peak aerobic efficiency. You'll learn your individual heart rate training zones based on your physiology.

STANDARD & RESTING METABOLIC RATE COMBO$200

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.

STANDARD & RESTING METABOLIC RATE COMBO WITH WATTS$250

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. Based upon your physiology, individual power training zones are extrapolated over a personalized grid providing the potential for highly focused training.

Fitness Test appointments are available in 1 hour 15-minute intervals at Cycle Loft in our enhanced Bike Fitting Center. You'll be working one-on-one with Joey Adams.
