Metabolic Testing

Metabolic Testing

VO2 Max Testing

Improve your time, Maximize Workout.

VO2 Max is the measure of an individual's maximum capacity to transport and utilize oxygen during exercise. Our VO2 Max test measures key data including peak VO2, anaerobic threshold, and the precise amount of calories burned at all exercise heart rate levels. This data can be used as the foundation for customized exercise programs that truly meet the needs of the individual.

An oxygen-measuring mask is attached to the individual while they are exercising on a treadmill or on a stationary cycle. The individual is then submitted through increasingly more strenuous exercise while measuring their rate of oxygen use.

VO2 max capacity is more than simply knowing how much oxygen is used. It is a basic benchmark of athletic capacity. Empower yourself with the ability to meet your fitness goals efficiently and safely with no unnecessary fatigue or wasted time.

Resting Metabolic Rate

LEARN HOW TO BE EFFECTIVE!

Measuring Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) helps when constructing personalized weight loss programs and will offer you a more effective way to manage caloric intake.

Everyone's metabolism and caloric needs are different. Your body's metabolism is affected by factors such as genetics, age, gender, height, and activity. After our test, you will learn:

  • How many calories you can consume without gaining weight
  • What caloric deficit is required to lose weight
  • Your personal metabolic requirements
  • How many calories from exercise should be included in a balanced weight loss program
  • How many calories are burned from fat compared to carbohydrates

What really makes No Limit Fitness different is our sense of community and our passion for fitness and sports performance. We have a "start together, finish together" mentality. It doesn't matter if you've never picked up a weight in your life, if you are training with the groups, or training individually, you are in the family. Our passion for fitness is noticeable from the moment you walk in the... door, if it's not then we have not done our job. The environment is positive, encouraging, and fun. We want you to want to be here. It is our responsibility to help you see that fitness is a way of life. Your strength, conditioning, flexibility, and overall fitness level is a life-long process, not just a short-term goal and your nutrition is an ongoing science experiment, not just a New Year's resolution.

Smarter Team Training has been developed to focus on athlete and team development, performance, and education.

By incorporating the SMARTER Team Training programs into your year round athletic development program you will decrease your injury potential, increase individual athleticism, and maximize your team training time.

Coaching athletes or teams is a skill that requires experience, practice,... knowledge of proper training principles, and enthusiasm. We approach each workout with the same passion and energy as our first. What you can accomplish is not defined by what you can do on your own, but what we can achieve as a SMARTER team.

The seven phases of the STT program are Speed, Movement, Agility, Reaction, Technology, Education, and Resistance.
