VO2 TESTING

VO2 max is the measurement of the maximum amount of oxygen a person can utilize during vigorous exercise. The assessment is often utilized to establish the fitness state of an athlete prior to or during the course of training. It is one of several tests used to determine an athlete’s performance capacity. This testing allows for observation of macronutrient utilization at different intensities of exercise.

    • Used for all levels and types of athletes
    • For any exercise mode, method, or apparatus
    • Testing available out in the field in actual sporting conditions
    • Progressive intensity test
    • Training zones determined from data
    • Caloric consumption (fats/carbohydrates) at varying heart rates
    • Comprehensive training workbook delivered via email

Require that you wear a mask and breathe through a tube attached to a PNOE metabolic cart where gases will be analyzed.
VO2 testing takes approximately 45 minutes per discipline.

Cost: $150 per test/mode

LACTATE TESTING

Lactate threshold is the point where buildup of lactic acid begins. Your muscles are producing more lactic acid than the organs can clear. It is maximum effort level that an athlete can train at for a considerable amount of time.

    • Used for all levels of endurance athletes
    • For repetitive, longer duration sports
    • Progressive intensity test
    • Utilized for racing strategy
    • Useful in determining training zones

Require that you give a blood sample (through a simple lancet device similar to what a person would use to test blood sugar levels) applied to a test strip and analyzed in a blood lactate analyzer.

Lactate testing takes approximately 45 minutes per discipline.

Cost: $150 per test/mode

RMR TESTING

Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) test measures the number of calories that your body burns per day at rest. It indicates your individual energy quotient.  This is the amount of energy that comes from fat and carbohydrates. The test will guide you how to “eat for your metabolism” and achieve your goals.

    • General population and athletes
    • Weight loss, weight maintenance, or weight gain

Requires breathing into a tube with your nose pinched while lying in a relaxed position.

RMR analysis takes approximately 30 minutes.

Cost: $150 

PHYSICAL INVENTORY AND ANALYSIS

Finding out where you are physically right here and now is key to knowing what you need to do to get to where you want to go.  Three services are provided to do this.  Each service can be purchased individually or as a package to get the complete picture. This is only offered on certain dates throughout the year.

Dexa Scan – provided by BodySpec technicians right at the Sport Speed Lab store. Your scan will assess your body composition.  A digital report will be generated which includes body fat percentage, lean body tissue, and bone density.  All data will be broken down into specific body parts to give you an even more in-depth look at what lies beneath the skin.

Fee – $55

Functional Movement Screen (FMS) – comprised of seven fundamental movement patterns that require a balance of mobility and stability. The tests place you in extreme positions where weaknesses and imbalances become noticeable. If these basic movement patterns are not available, many athletes will begin to compensate for poor movement patterns, particularly with the dynamic demands of their sport. If these compensations continue, then poor patterns will be reinforced, leading to poor biomechanics and potentially, injury. The FMS and dynamic postural analysis will be performed by a licensed Physical Therapist and you will receive a generated report on the areas that you need to work on and areas where you have strengths to build on. You can use this information to make changes in your current workout regimen, share it with your coach, or opt to come back for a 1:1 consultation (at an additional cost) with the Physical therapist.

Run Vo2 Test – VO2 max is the measurement of the maximum amount of oxygen a person can utilize during vigorous exercise. The assessment is performed by a degreed exercise physiologist. It is one of several tests used to determine an athlete’s performance capacity. This testing allows for observation of macronutrient utilization at different intensities of exercise. You will gain insight into how your body is performing under different workloads and whether the type of work you are doing is getting you closer to your goals.

Fee – $150

 

DEXA + FMS = $150 (27% savings)

DEXA + VO2 = $150  (27% savings)

DEXA + FMS + VO2 = $225 (37% savings)
