Metabolic Testing and Training Package

The MedGem indirect calorimeter, a state-of-the-art, handheld device, accurately measures oxygen consumption (VO2) to determine resting metabolic rate (RMR). Your metabolic rate is the speed at which your body expends energy. Knowing your personal metabolic rate while resting is vital for weight loss/gain and determining your proper caloric intake. An initial 60-minute appointment will provide you with your resting metabolic rate and fitness consultation on key components for your workouts so you can get back on track and meet your weight loss goals. Two 40-minute follow-up consultations with Ridgeview's exercise specialist will provide you with modifications to meet your fitness goals.
