Metabolic flexibility is key to achieve your health goals. This assessment will provide you with an understanding into your fat burning and muscles efficiency, true cardiovascular fitness and resting metabolic rate. This will enable you to make informed decisions about nutrition, type and length of exercise to achieve your personal best.
Many calculations exist to estimate the number of calories that you are burning but most of these do not take into account the dynamic nature of metabolism, which often misleads you to think you are eating in a kcal deficit when in fact you are not. Our Metabolic Analysis Test does not fall into this trap, and through it we can also realise what level of exercise intensity your body reacts best to in order to achieve the results you want.
We use the most advanced technology, PNOE, a portable metabolic analyser, designed to provide a reliable method of measuring an individual’s baseline for calorie consumption, fatigue and recovery.
This test has two phases: the resting phase and the active phase. To gain an accurate representation of rest, a few pre-test protocols must be followed which include fasting, no coffee/nicotine/alcohol and no training. This phase of the test will take around 30 minutes in total whereas the active phase depends on the amount of time it takes you to reach your maximum effort. During the test, we can also look at how certain supplements affect your metabolism in real time. This additional information helps us provide you with better advice in terms of nutrition and supplements.
