Fitness Testing

The key to working out smarter...

Knowing your fitness is a decided advantage over just straight "working out". With the knowledge of your VO2 max, Anaerobic Threshold, and Body Fat Analysis, our personal trainers can customize and optimize your workout plan.

  • VO2 max, the amount of oxygen the body uses during exercise
  • Anaerobic Threshold (AT), the point at which your muscles start to produce lactic acid, and burn more sugar than fat.
  • Body fat analysis, including Muscle mass and Water content testing provides the information for a true analysis of your body composition and a good gauge for going forward.

If you are interested in getting fitness testing, please contact us.
