Discover your body's specific metabolics.

An incremental physiological assessment test reveals how efficient your body is at utilizing your almost unlimited fat stores as energy. From the data collected via this gold standard metabolic cart, also used at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, you will receive customized nutrition and exercise recommendations based and focused on your individual goals for improving health and performance. Performance Test Options are listed below.

 

If you would prefer to start your journey into metabolic efficiency without performing the physical test - this is also an option. Have a look below under "Consultation," as the nutritional component can be your sole focus.

Performance Tests

Metabolic Efficiency Point (MEP) evaluates the body's efficiency at using fat as a fuel during exercise. This test is specifically designed for those athletes looking to monitor and improve their metabolic efficiency. It will identify the crossover point, determine maximal fat oxidation rate (FatMAX) and help define energy requirements during extensive endurance training and racing. The incremental assessment is a low level exertion test and can be done running on a treadmill or biking (using your own bike) on a computrainer. To schedule a test, either phone or send an email via the contact page.
