Skills Challenge

Workout smarter, not harder. Our trained staff perform resting heart rate tests which enable you to know your daily caloric expenditure and target heart rate zone specific to your body's need. 

Resting metabolic testing reveals how many calories your body burns at rest, giving you the data you need to plan a weight loss, gain or maintenance plan. 
Active metabolic testing reveals your optimal heart rate training zones to help you understand the number of calories you burn during every level of exercise. This information provides valuable feedback when designing a weight loss program or looking to make further improvements in athletic performance.
