Understanding Metabolic Fitness
Metabolic Fitness Assessments
Choose from two types of assessments to assess your Metabolic Fitness Efficiency, conveniently at your location or in a small semi-private studio setting located in Issaquah.
Detailed reports are provided with each assessment to explain every detail of your fitness results. These assessments have been proven to benefit individuals of all abilities and fitness levels. You will learn how to maximize your time, fitness training and performance and get the results you want!
Metabolism is all the processes that occur in the body that turn the food you eat into energy your body can use. Essentially, the body transformation of food into energy (calories) needed for important life processes.
Why Assess Your Metabolism
Metabolic testing provides individualized, real data on the number of calories needed to survive each day, the number of calories you burn during exercise and also indicates the exact exercise heart rate to maximally burn fat.
Resting Metabolic Rate
Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) measures your calorie utilization while at rest needed to maintain the body’s vital functions. If you want a weight loss plan that really works, you have to target your individual metabolism and forget about charts and averages. There is no such thing as one size fits all. Each person’s resting metabolic rate is based on genetics, eating habits, and fitness level. Knowing your RMR is the first step towards balancing your caloric intake with the amount of calories you burn each day.
This test can be used to maximze your weight loss, overcome plateaus or just maintain or even gain weight. Athletes find this an extremely useful tool to calculate how much they need to consume for optimal athletic performance and recovery. A resting metabolic rate test is a simple test that can help you to achieve your training or weight management goals.
Active VO2 Metabolism
Oxygen usage and carbon dioxide production are very specific to each person and provide a very detailed analysis of how the body uses fat and glycogen as exercise intensity increases. This is one of the most comprehensive physiologic test INFITNESS has to offer. It provides insight into the performance of the aerobic system by evaluating cardiorespiratory and metabolic function.
During a test, exercise intensity measured in watts or speed is increased while data is provided every 15 seconds. Aerobic and anaerobic thresholds are determined as well as peak VO2. The ability to sustain a high percentage of ones VO2max rather than VO2max itself is an important characteristic of a strong endurance athlete.
An individual fitness program will be designed using heart rates corresponding to your personal threshold for any training program, and/or fitness program providing desired fitness results.
