    PHYSICAL ASSESSMENTS

    Anthropometrics and Vitals:

    General Health Assessment

     

    15 minute assessment - $50

     

    Anthropometrics are used to assess the size, shape, and composition of the human body. Common methods used to gather these measurements include waist and hip circumference, waist-to-hip ratio, and body mass index (BMI). Your vitals are your resting blood pressure and resting heart rate. All of these parameters can be compared to norms to see where your health lies in comparison to the general population.

    BodPod:

    Body Composition Assessment

     

    30 minute assessment - $125 (initial) / $95 (follow-up)

     

    The body is made up of various parts – fat tissue, muscle tissue, bones, connective tissues, water, etc. Your unique body composition can affect many facets of your health and fitness from disease risk to physical function and athletic performance. Body composition analysis with the Bod Pod is the gold standard for providing a simple, accurate, and useful method for evaluating fat mass and fat-free mass.

    METABOLIC ASSESSMENTS

    Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR):

    Resting Caloric Expenditure & Metabolic Assessment

     

    1 hour assessment - $200 (canopy) / $300 (chamber)

     

    An individualized measurement of the amount of calories you expend per day at rest. During the assessment, we measure resting energy expenditure and estimate total energy expended per day. You receive information about your resting oxygen consumption (O2), resting energy expenditure (REE) in calories/day, and whether you are primarily burning fat or carbohydrates.

    We offer 2 modes of testing

    Canopy: measurement of the energy burned at rest while awake and not moving, speaking, or talking with overhead canopy [pictured top]

     

    RMR Chamber: gold standard measurement of energy burned at rest while awake; can also measure energy used to digest food (thermic effect of food) in completely sealed room [pictured bottom]

    FatMax Protocol:

    Substrate Utilization Assessment

     

    1 hour assessment - $550

     

    The FatMax protocol, developed by Aster Jeukendrup in 2002, is a multistage, graded exercise test designed to measure fat oxidation at different exercise intensities ranging from very light to near-maximal or maximal effort. From this assessment, you will obtain information about the FatMax and FatMin, which are the intensities at which fat oxidation is at its highest and its lowest, respectively. We will be able to formulate an individualized exercise prescription with an emphasis on fat and weight loss.

     

    Please note, the FatMax protocol requires physician clearance. See our physician referral/medical clearance form HERE. Please print the form, complete it, and bring it with you to your appointment.

    Continuous Work Rate Exercise (CWRE):

    Substrate Utilization Assessment

     

    1 hour assessment - $550

     

    This assessment is an endurance protocol (~45min - 60 min) which allows you to better understand how well your body uses both fat and carbohydrates for energy during exercise. This can be used to quantify the total number of calories you burn during an exercise bout for fueling and refueling purposes, as well as the intensity of the exercise bout and the total number of calories that are coming from fat vs. carbohydrates.

    We offer 2 modes of testing

    Metabolic Cart: measurement of the energy burned during exercise on a stationary bicycle, while wearing a mask attached to a portable metabolic cart [pictured top]

     

    Exercise Chamber: gold standard measurement of energy burned during exercise; can perform any type of exercise that can be completed within a small room (treadmill, stationary bicycle, weight lifting, yoga) [pictured bottom[]

    Mitchondrial Function Protocol:

    Advanced Assessment for Weight Loss & Longevity

     

    Requires two, 1 hour assessments (on separate visits) - $1,100

     

    This assessment is our own unique and advanced exercise protocol, created by Dr. Dori Arad and Dr. Fred DiMenna, to evaluate fat burning capacity and mitochondrial function. The GET is the point during exercise at which your body is producing more carbon dioxide than it can clear, you may have heard this point referred to as the “anaerobic threshold” or “lactate threshold.” The GET represents the upper end of moderate-intensity exercise and the work rate at this intensity has been shown to correlate with maximal fat burning capacity. This assessment will help you understand if you have reduced fat burning capacity during exercise. Two step protocol:

    1. VO2max test: 1 hour assessment
    2. CWRE (as described above) at the gas exchange threshold (GET):

    Sport-Specific Exercise:

    Exercise Caloric Expenditure & Metabolic Assessment

     

    1 hour assessment - $550 (metabolic cart) / $650 (metabolic chamber)

     

    This assessment allows you to evaluate your normal exercise routine to better understand how many calories you burn, and whether you are primarily burning fat or carbohydrate. Work with our on-staff Certified Exercise Physiologist to develop an exercise protocol that is most appropriate for you performance goals.

     

    Please note, the Sport-Specific Exercise assessment requires you send the PhysioLab your usual exercise regimen at least one week in advance.

     

    24 hour Metabolic Chamber:

    Total Energy Expenditure (TEE)

     

    24 hour assessment - $2,200

     

    An individualized gold standard measurement of energy expenditure during rest, sleeping, exercise, eating, and performing activities of daily life over a single day. This assessment provides vital information that can be used to create a specific and personalized program for weight loss, athletic performance, or general health.

    FITNESS ASSESSMENTS

    VO2 Maximal Testing:

    Cardiorespiratory Fitness Assessment

     

    1 hour assessment - $550

     

    This exercise assessment represents the maximal rate at which your body can consume oxygen (VO2Max) for physical work and is considered the best measure of aerobic fitness. Aerobic fitness reflects the ability of your heart, lungs, and blood to deliver oxygen to your working muscles during an exercise bout. Additionally, it reflects the ability of your working muscles to use that oxygen to support maximal exercise. Aerobic fitness is used to assess health status and determine one’s risk of chronic disease(s).This testing can be done on the treadmill or stationary bicycle and is safe for all populations with physician clearance and supervision  

     

    Please note, VO2 Maximal Testing requires physician clearance. See our physician referral/medical clearance form HERE. Please print the form, complete it, and bring it with you to your appointment.

    Submaximal Testing:

    Cardiorespiratory Fitness Assessment

     

    1 hour assessment - $550

     

    This exercise test is often used to estimate VO2Max by utilizing established prediction equations for various protocols. Such equations consider the heart rate response to one or more submaximal work rates. Submaximal exercise testing is the most valid and reliable method for predicting cardiorespiratory fitness when done in a laboratory setting where work rate can be accurately measured. Additionally, these tests can provide information about the individual’s functional response to exercise through measurements of heart rate, blood pressure, rating of perceived exertion, and other objective and subjective indices. Safe for all populations.

    NUTRITION AND LIFESTYLE ASSESSMENTS

    Nutrition Adequacy Assessment:

     

    3-day food log analysis - $200

     

    Analysis of a self-reported 3-day food log to determine adequacy of your diet in regard to macronutrient and micronutrient distribution. Comparisons will be made to the US Dietary Guidelines and Dietary Reference Intakes. Learn where your diet is adequate and where improvements can be made.

    Lifestyle Consultation:

     

    1 hour assessment - $250 (initial) / $100 (follow-up)

     

    Counseling and review of dietary, physical activity, and clinical/wellness data with Registered Dietitians and Certified Exercise Physiologists. Work together to develop a personalized wellness program and make long-lasting changes.
