Fitness Packages

Sports Package $45

Athletes and physically active individuals can use the information collected from the package to build a physical profile or benchmark for setting goals. Assessments include: treadmill VO2max test along with lactate threshold, nutrition assessment, body composition assessment via DXA.

Cardiovascular Fitness $20

This test will determine the participant's maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max). VO2max is considered the "gold standard" for determining an individual's cardiorespiratory fitness level. The cardiovascular fitness assessment will involve an exercise test performed on a treadmill or cycle ergometer. Lactate threshold may also be included for an additional cost.

Bone Density & Body Composition Evaluation $30

Body composition is measured by dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scan which is considered to be the "gold standard" for measuring body composition. Results from the test include percent body fat, lean body mass, fat distribution, and total bone mineral density. Hip and spine BMD are also included. *Do not wear metal for this procedure, i.e- button on jeans, zippers, & jewelry. Work out attire is recommended.

Individual Fitness Services

Anaerobic Power Capacity Test $10

Anaerobic power and capacity are assessed by a Wingate cycle ergometer test. Results from the test will include peak power, mean power or capacity, and fatigue index.

Muscular Fitness $5

The evaluation of muscular fitness involves endurance and flexibility assessments. The test includes evaluation of push-ups and curl-ups. Flexibility is determined for the shoulders, lower back, and hamstrings.

Lactate Threshold $6

Lactate threshold is the accumulation of lactate in the blood during exercise. Lactate threshold can provide an estimation of cardiovascular fitness and anaerobic endurance. It is assessed through the collection of blood from a finger prick during different stages of the cardiorespiratory fitness or the anaerobic power test.

Body Composition/Skinfold Measurement $7

Body composition (% body fat and muscle mass) are estimated by this method. The body composition assessment involves the measurement of skinfold thickness at three to seven different body sites. Circumference measurements are also included.
