Physiological Analysis

Physiological Analysis

Receive comprehensive analysis to monitor your physiological progress as you train - how quickly does your body recover? what is your target heart rate? how many calories do you need?

Bridge Program, $300 for 8 sessions

The Bridge Program is geared toward clients who wish to enhance their physical performance post rehabilitation. A trainer will design a sport specific exercise training program that will mitigate the client’s performance for their return to sport/activity. Athletes can utilize this program to improve strength, agility, and proprioception. As needed, the trainer will consult the designated client’s physical/occupational therapist and/or physician for programming guidance.

VO2 Max, $250 for 2 sessions of Resting Metabolic Rate and VO2 Max or $200 for 2 sessions of only VO2 Max

VO2 Max testing is geared toward clients who are interested in completing a cardio fitness assessment that measures peak oxygen consumption, calories burned at different heart rates, aerobic and anaerobic threshold, as well as target intensity zones. A VO2 test measures the amount of oxygen the body uses at different exertion levels while exercising on a bike or treadmill.


Resting Metabolic Rate, $250 for 2 sessions of Resting Metabolic Rate and VO2 Max or $100 for Resting Metabolic Rate Only

Resting metabolic rate (RMR) testing is geared toward clients who wish to identify their unique target caloric zones in order to lose weight or support their caloric needs during training. The exercise physiologist and physical therapist will advise the client as to how many calories they will need to intake in order to stay in the weight maintenance zone or the weight loss zone based on their unique resting metabolic rate (RMR). The calculated RMR will also be used to estimate calories burned during exercise and during normal activities of daily living.


Lower Extremity Testing, $200 for a 5-6 month testing protocol

The Lower Extremity Testing helps assess leg symmetry after an injury to determine an athlete’s readiness to return to play. The testing assesses balance, agility, and strength with movement screens, force plates, the Optojump system, and Wattbike.


Wingate Test, $75 for test, exercise program prescription and demonstration

A Wingate Test is a 30 second all out sprint performed on our Excalibur Sport Lode Ergometer. This mechanically braked cycle is renowned worldwide as the gold standard in ergometry. The rider is instructed to pedal as fast as possible while the torque remains constant at a rate depending on the body weight. Power = Torque x velocity. Wingate testing is appropriate for individuals who are interested in finding out about their anaerobic power. Anaerobic power is a reflection of how efficiently the body’s energy system of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and phosphocreatine (PCr) pathways work. This energy system gives you high power for short durations.

Pedal Force Measurement is included with the Wingate Test

The Lode Ergometer has built-in modified strain gauge technology that measures forces exerted on the pedals during exercise and is supplied with angle detection. Forces, power, and torque results per 2 degrees of each revolution and efficiency calculations are monitored and recorded while the client cycles. This can help identify which leg is dominant and at which angles the client is able to produce the most power.
