Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)
Do you need to know your rate of metabolism and your daily caloric needs
in order to lose or gain weight? With a simple test, which lasts 10-25
minutes, we can determine your rate of metabolism and daily caloric
needs. Using the results from your RMR test, you can determine how many
calories per day you need to lose or gain weight. This test is
appropriate for all fitness levels.
How can I benefit from a Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Test?
Your RMR or
resting metabolic rate represents the calories your body uses to
maintain vital body functions (heart rate, brain function, breathing).
In simple terms, it is the number of calories a person would burn if
awake, but at rest, all day without activity or exercise.
The RMR test is a simple test lasting 5-20 minutes which involves
breathing into a disposable mouthpiece while your oxygen consumption is
measured. The higher your resting metabolic rate, the more calories you
burn. This test is a great way to measure the effectiveness of your
current nutrition and exercise program. No more averages or guessing
about how many calories you should consume.
Your results are immediate and include the following:
-How many calories you burn at rest.
-Rating of your metabolism as normal, slow, or fast.
-Guidelines to assist you in reaching your goal weight.
