Metabolic measurements

Resting metabolic rate (RMR)

An understanding of your energy needs provides a sound scientific basis for any weight loss or maintenance plan. This technique, which involves resting on a bed for 40 minutes combined with an assessment of your daily lifestyle energy requirements, will provide an accurate assessment of your daily caloric needs. This can then be matched with your energy intake if you are wishing to lose, maintain or gain weight.

Substate utilisation and energy expenditure 

Our state-of-the-art metabolic equipment will measure your energy expenditure and substrate utilisation in real-time at rest (see RMR) and during a range of activities. This technique allows our exercise physiologists to measure the maximal rate of fat utilisation and total energy expenditure that could target a more individual and efficient weight management strategy.

This assessment can also monitor the effects of training and plan for nutritional intake to match energy expenditure during short- or long-duration exercise.
