What is a Metabolic Test?

A metabolic test is a type of medical test used to measure the rate at which your body is able to process and use energy.

The test measures how much oxygen your body consumes while at rest, or performing an exercise activity, such as running on a treadmill.

It usually involves 2 tests – the Resting Metabolic Rate test and the VO2 Max test.

By measuring both the amount of oxygen consumed and carbon dioxide produced, health professionals are able to gain an understanding of how efficiently your body is using energy.

These tests can help provide insight into how well fitness and nutrition plans are working.

The results of a metabolic test can be used to help make adjustments to create an individualized plan that is tailored to your needs and goals.

The information is can also be used to determine whether you are at risk for certain diseases, such as diabetes or heart disease.

Metabolic testing is typically conducted by health professionals, such as doctors, physiotherapists, or registered dietitians.

It is the only truly data-led approach to discovering how your body is performing and to guide bespoke training and weight loss plans.

The Device

The PNOE device we use is a powerful and precise training machine. It measures an athlete’s oxygen uptake, or VO2max, while they exercise in order to gauge their current level of fitness and track progress over time.

It offers real-time feedback on heart rate, oxygen uptake, and energy expenditure, allowing athletes to see and adjust their performance based on the data.

It is also compatible with a variety of sports watches, fitness trackers, and gym equipment so athletes can easily integrate it into their existing training routines.
