Welcome to our blog!

Hello all, and Happy Monday!

We are the staff at the Mount Sinai PhysioLab, and we want to welcome you to our brand new blog! We would like to take this opportunity to explain a little about the lab, our mission, services, and our goals for the future.

Our Background and History

The PhysioLab was created in 2016, out of a realization that our research grade tools and assessments could also be used for promoting and achieving personalized health and wellness goals with all individuals, from those seeking to start their fitness journey to those who are elite level athletes. Further, our team of clinical dietitians and exercise physiologists identified the need to combine these services with evidence-based, individualized consultations to prevent and treat disease with lifestyle interventions.

We are based out of the Mount Sinai, St. Luke’s Hospital’s Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism, where we have conducted research projects for the last few decades. Now, this research comes to life with daily client interactions and interventions to help you reach your personal health, wellness, and fitness goals!

PhysioLab Mission:

We utilize data-driven, evidence-based fitness, metabolic, body composition, and lifestyle assessments to better understand clients’ personalized health and wellness goals and needs.


Our Approach

At the PhysioLab, we provide comprehensive services to give a complete picture of your health, fitness, and wellness. These services include body composition analysis, metabolic rate assessment, fitness testing, dietary analysis, and lifestyle assessment.
