Blood Lactate Threshold – COMING SOON

Improve performance and get the most out of your exercise. The level of lactic acid in your blood indicates if you’re working over or under your target cardio intensity. This clinical test determines the five training zones that optimize aerobic conditioning, maximize fitness improvement and fat burning, and improve exercise performance.

Part I – You will wear a heart rate monitor for this 20-to-30-minute test on the treadmill. A Fitness Expert will gradually increase intensity and take a blood sample from your fingertip every four minutes.

Part II – Discuss test results with our expert and devise an exercise plan based on your five training zones. Take home a prescription to improve aerobic stamina, your anaerobic threshold, and weight loss efficiency.

Two-part service; 90 minutes total | $395

Body Composition Screening With Bod Pod

The Bod Pod® is used in scientific journal studies to accurately measure body fat percentage and fat free mass, which is a key predictor of your metabolism, health, vitality and performance. Learn if you have the right fat free mass to meet your goals. After two 40-second measurements in the Bod Pod, your fitness expert will interpret your results and calculate your ideal body weight for health, fitness or performance.

For accurate results: No heavy meals or vigorous exercise 60 minutes prior to testing. Bring minimal clothing to wear during Bod Pod testing (women, bathing suit or sports bra and tight-fitting shorts or capri leggings; men, tight-fitting bathing suit – no board shorts – or tight-fitting underwear).

Metabolic Exercise Assessment – COMING SOON

Measure your aerobic fitness level – your body’s ability to consume oxygen (V02 maximum) – and calculate how many calories you burn per minute during this two-part service.

Part I – Data Collection: You will be fitted with a heart rate monitor and a comfortable mask. You will then exercise for 10 to 15 minutes at progressively more challenging workloads until you reach 90% of maximum exercise effort.

Part II – Data Interpretation: A Fitness Expert will discuss your test results in depth. You will learn your V02 maximum, how your aerobic fitness level compares to others your age, what your V02 maximum needs to be to reach your fitness goals, how to train to improve your V02 maximum, how many calories you burn at any heart rate, the efficiency of your heart (O2 pulse) as well as your precise ideal target heart rate zones. Leave with a clear understanding of your aerobic fitness and a custom exercise program to get you to your goals.
