We specialise in intelligent weight management through metabolic testing.
People often talk about metabolism and how it affects your health and wellbeing, but do you actually know how your metabolism works? Your resting metabolic rate is one of the most crucial factors affecting how your body maintains its weight in a healthy range which gives you the energy you need for day to day activity.
Your metabolic rate will be used to calculate your required calorie intake in order to achieve your goal. Current research confirms that the key to weight loss or gain lies in energy balance. It is so simple... burn more calories than you eat and you will lose weight, eat more calories than you burn and you will gain weight.
Oxygen consumption is directly related to calorie burn all you have to do is breathe into a mouth piece for 12-14 minutes, the air you breathe out is analysed to determine exactly how much oxygen your body is consuming. Once the test is complete we will know exactly how many calories you are burning each day, so now we will know how many you need in order to achieve your goal.
Depending on what you are looking to achieve there are a number of different packages available:
