The first step in our program is a focused physical exam and fitness assessment. This assessment is perhaps the best piece of information you can get on your current state of health. The results will serve as your baseline for making improvement and setting goals.
Each component of the complete body work-up offers a unique perspective that contributes to a whole body analysis. From these results, Dr. Edwards develops a unique program to help cultivate a lifestyle of health and vitality as you age.
Resting Metabolic Rate
Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) testing is used to determine your unique caloric zones for weight loss, lean muscle gain, sports performance enhancement, or general health & wellness goals. These results help to develop your personalized nutrition program and exercise guidelines. An RMR Test is simple & non-invasive. The process consists of breathing into a mouthpiece for 12 minutes while your oxygen consumption is measured.
What to Expect During the RMR Test:
- You will be invited to rest in a comfortable position.
- You will be given a MetaBreather mouthpiece to breathe into.
- You will be breathing in fresh air from the room, the gas that you exhale will go through a tube into the metabolic analyzer to measure your metabolic rate.
- After approximately 12 minutes, the device will beep, indicating that the test is complete. Then, we interpret and apply the results to your personalized nutrition program.
