Testing Services on offer at Trench Health
Whether you are monitoring your health, fitness, body composition or performance - it always helps to have really accurate baseline measurements. As you make positive changes, such as exercising, losing weight or following a high performance training regime, repeated testing can give you the real hard evidence of what you have achieved. Currently on offer at Trench Health and Fitness are DEXA scans, a VO2max test and an RMR test.
Perhaps you are keen to have more than one of the tests Trench Health and Fitness offers? If so, we can organise a testing package for you. Give us a call and we can discuss the details with you.
Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)
RMR Testing measures the amount of energy used by the body in a relaxed state. Metabolic rate is influenced by age, gender, hormones, stress levels, how much lean and fat tissue you have and several other factors.
Lean (muscle) tissue is more metabolically active than fat tissue. This means it burns up more energy so athletes and those with a higher muscle mass generally have higher resting metabolic rates.
This is a good motivation to exercise more and build up your lean tissue!
