Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Test

Estimates your calorie burn at rest. This is used to:

  • Assess whether your metabolism is faster or slower than average 

  • Inform your daily calorie recommendation 

 

The test is performed using indirect calorimetry. We measure your oxygen consumption, breathing dynamics and heart rate at rest, after an overnight fast (and no caffeine!) and use this to estimate the calories you burn at rest. To get your estimated total daily calorie expenditure we then adjust this for your daily activity levels. 

 

You will receive an in depth report summarising the results and implications for your training and nutrition., and if you are a Nutrition client, the results will be integrated to your nutrition recommendations.

Physical Fitness Testing:​

​Using graded exercise and maximum output tests, we can estimate your:

  • VO2max and aerobic capacity

  • Anaerobic and lactate thresholds

  • Respiratory, Cardiac and Muscle oxygen utilisation dynamics to identify if you are uptake, delivery or utilisation limited as an athlete

  • Substrate utilisation during exercise (how your body uses fats and carbs to fuel exercise)

 

You will receive an in depth report summarising the results and implications for your training and nutrition., and if you are a Nutrition client, the results will be integrated to your nutrition recommendations
