Assessments

VO2 max – VO2 max is a measure of the maximum volume of oxygen that an athlete can use. It is measured in milliliters per kilogram of body weight per minute (ml/kg/min). This test will help you find your optimum training zones and will help you in scoring your overall fitness.

Metabolic efficiency testing (MET) – MET uses the concept of indirect calorimetry and is like on other physiological assessment. Metabolic efficiency assessments look at different variables and are beneficial for validating your current nutrition plan in relation to your health and performance goals. An incremental MET assessment provides information regarding at what exercise intensity (power, pace, speed or heart rate) the body uses fat and carbohydrate and when the “switch” between the two nutrients takes place. It is this assessment that identifies if you have a metabolic efficiency point (MEP) or not. Finding out this information will benefit you by structuring your nutrition and training to specifically lengthen your metabolic efficiency point into your race pace so less calorie intake is required.
