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.

Testing Packages

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. 

DEXA SCAN

There are many reasons you might chose to have a DEXA scan. Perhaps it's to check your bone density, track fat loss on a weight loss program; lean tissue (muscle) on a strength and conditioning program or simply out of interest to ensure it's what it should be from a health perspective.

VO2max

VO2max is the maximum rate of oxygen consumption measured during exercise of increasing intensity. It gives you a qualitative value of your cardiorespiratory fitness and endurance capacity. Your VO2max can improve as you get fitter. 

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!
