Energy production is key to every result in sports and fitness.

Our Services

  • Sports Performance Training
  • Gait Analysis/Orthotic Assessment
  • Endurance Training Programs
  • VO2 Peak Metabolic Profile
  • Resting Energy Expenditure Measurement
  • Weight Loss Programs
  • Body Composition Assessment
  • Hospital/Physician Services

A VO2 Peak Metabolic Profile will:

  • Measure your fitness level
  • Determine anaerobic or lactate threshold
  • Determine how many kcal you can burn in comfortable exercise
  • Give you 6 personal heart rate zones for training
  • Estimate Resting Energy Expenditure
  • Assess body composition
  • Provide you with an 8 week training program based upon your goals and needs
  • The test reflects your fitness level, so for recreational exercisers, the test is relatively easy, where for professional athletes the test is relatively difficult!
  • This test can occur on a treadmill or bicycle ergometer.

Reliable and accurate body composition

Body Composition Analysis

Body Composition is far more accurate at determining your ideal weight, whether it is for health or sports performance than BMI.

There are only two methods that determine segmental muscular mass, which is important to direct the emphasis in your exercise program. Too little muscular mass and your aerobic training suffers from a lack of engine. Too much emphasis on resistance training, and your won't get results because aerobic/anaerobic training burns 3x the kcal of weight training. Knowing the balance is key!

The InBody 720, which uses sophisticated bio-electrical impedance, not only measures body composition, but measures segmental muscular mass to determine your training program direction and the efficacy of your current program. The test takes 90 seconds, and then the information is used to give you an exercise outline that will help you achieve your desired results.

In our tests, the InBody 720 and the DEXA scan were identical in results. However, a DEXA scan test normally takes between 8-15 minutes, and most people don't like lying in a tube! The difference is we have more time to work with you on your exercise plan, and that is where results are born, training smarter for your physiology!

Digital Scaning = Better Resutls

Your feet are key, and we scan your feet and gait with sophisticated sensors to determine functional abnormalities that may be causing your pain, affecting other joints and may be affecting performance.

We use a 3DO scanning pad combined with a complete foot measurement, and an OptoGait system to view how you stand, walk and move. We can then advise you on the best type of shoes, actual shoe size for your foot, and what, if any level of in-shoe support you need.

We can outfit you with a simple supportive insert all the way of to a medical grade orthotic. 50-60% of the time, people return their orthotics because they didn't work or fit. Our return rate is less than 2%, far better than the industry average!

We do charge for the analysis because not everyone needs a footbed or orthotic, and if you don't we don't recommend one!

Lactate Threshold test

Heart Rate/Lactate

Heart Rate/Lactate

Lactate Threshold Testing

Lactate Threshold testing uses actual blood samples to map the accumulation of blood lactate over resting levels.

During this test, you will run or cycle approximately 40 minutes with small changes in speed or resistance, with measurements every 3-4 minutes.

Data is then plotted against starting values to determine exactly where lactate was produced and was not cleared.

For the ultra-endurance athlete this test is useful at finding data that will indicate a pace or speed which can be maintained long-term, such as during a marathon. However, we believe that for strength/power athletes and fitness enthusiasts, this test is a duplicate of what is derived from the VO2 Max test, and largely unnecessary unless you are an ultra endurance athlete.
