Everyone's response to exercise is unique, so what's yours?
Whether your goal is performance or weight loss, knowing your individual response to exercise gives you the tools you need to get the results you want. To get the best results for you, it is very important to know the correct exercise intensity that will provide you the optimum, sustainable burn of fat and calories. The New Leaf Active Metabolic Assessment System uses the same technology found in Olympic Training Centers and Sports Medicine Clinics.
What is the test like and how long will it take?
Depending on your objectives, a Sub Maximal or Peak VO2 assessment will be performed. We will measure your unique response to exercise (whether you are burning fat or sugar) at different exercise intensities. It's simple to perform and requires only eight to ten minutes to complete. Please plan for about 1 hour total for the pretest, test, program and explanation of the results. Assessments may be performed on any aerobic equipment such as bike, treadmill or elliptical.
