Our Physiological Assessment is designed to determine your capability to adapt to physiological stress. Whether you are looking to compete at a sport at a high level or trying to return to work, we look at the amount of stress your body can appropriately handle so you can be healthier, improve quality of life and improve your mentally and physically performance.
We have access to some of the most advanced non-invasive technology in the health industry to help monitor your progress and determine if changes or alterations may be needed. The objective of the Physiological Assessment using a combination of VO2 max, MOXY and Phase Angle is to discover where you can improve your physiology for optimal health and performance, and develop a plan with measurable goals to help you achieve the goals that are set. Each test is conducted and interpreted by an experienced Exercise Physiologist and meets with each person to discuss test results, providing in-depth interpretation and training recommendations.
A VO2 Test can greatly improve the effectiveness of your workout and provide information on your health and performance. By improving ability to utilize oxygen, the overall function of the body become more efficient, meaning better overall health and increased performance. Whether you're new to exercise or trying to break through a training plateau, knowing your aerobic capacity is your first step to better understand on where improvements can be made. Too many people mistakenly exercise too hard or are not exercising hard enough. When you know your ideal training zones, you get the most out of every exercises session.
MOXY is a part of the new wave of physiological testing. It is a small, non-invasive sensor that utilizes infrared light to continuously monitor oxygen saturation (SmO‚‚) levels in the muscles of athletes while they exercise. It is designed to provide accurate, real time measurements of the percentage of hemoglobin-and-myoglobin-carrying oxygen in the capillaries and cells of muscle tissue, where oxygen is consumed to produce energy. MOXY helps identify optimal training intensity zones and provides feedback on the physiologic systems limiting performance.
Phase Angle (PA) is commonly accepted as a prognostic indicator of morbidity and mortality, and is proportional to the ratio of body cell mass to fat-free mass. As health status changes, so does an individuals PA. Low phase angles are consistent with malnutrition, infections, chronic diseases, most types of cancer and abusive life style, such as chronic alcoholism. A low phase angle is consistent with an inability of cells to store energy, cell death or a breakdown of the cell membrane. A high phase angle is consistent with improved cellular health, body cell mass and overall health.
