Resting Metabolic Rate (Resting VO2)

Approximately 45 minutes

Discover your resting metabolic rate by laying still and breathing into a mouthpiece connected to a metabolic cart. Useful for determining calorie expenditure.

Wingate Test (30-Second Anaerobic Power Test)

Approximately 20 minutes

Measure your power output during a 30-second maximal effort test performed on a Monark cycle ergometer (stationary bike). Beneficial for athletes requiring explosive power in their sport (e.g. jumping, sprinting, etc.).

Blood Lactate Threshold Test

Approximately 60 minutes

This is a test for endurance athletes who are serious about training. The test involves pricking the finger during each stage of the exercise test (on a treadmill or cycle ergo meter) to measure lactate concentration in the blood in response to the increasing exercise intensity. This testing is generally intended for those who are already training regularly and want more information or confirmation about their performance and training thresholds.

Bod Pod

Approximately 10 minutes

Determine your body composition (fat and fat-free mass). A full test requires about 10 minutes, and provides highly accurate, safe, comfortable, and fast test results.
