Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)

Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)

Resting Metabolic Rate (“RMR”)

How many calories do you really need for weight loss, fat loss, increased lean mass, or sports performance?

RMR (“Resting Metabolic Rate”) measures the amount of energy necessary to support vital bodily functions while at rest. RMR typically comprises 60-75% of one’s total daily caloric expenditure, making it an important component to any health-related fitness goal. Many prediction equations are inaccurate for determining proper nutritional recommendations for weight loss/gain goals. The most efficient way to measure RMR is through indirect calorimetry, a precise measure of oxygen and carbon dioxide concentration in inspired and expired air. Completing a RMR assessment will provide a detailed analysis of your individual metabolism to pinpoint the ideal blueprint for success.

Halevy Life’s Metabolic Lab provides clinical-grade metabolic profile testing, using state-of-the-art technology, to determine RMR, and provide a detailed analysis of your individual metabolism to pinpoint the ideal blueprint for success.

Maximal Oxygen Consumption (

Maximal Oxygen Consumption ("VO2 Max")

Max Oxygen Consumption (“VO2 Max”)

Are you an endurance athlete, runner or triathlete? Curious about your cardiovascular fitness?

VO2 Max is the highest rate at which oxygen can be taken up and utilized by the body during intense exercise, the highest capacity of one’s aerobic fitness. Not only is VO2max an important indicator for the ability of an athlete to perform endurance exercise (i.e. marathon, triathlon, etc.), but it also provides a good measure of cardiovascular health.

Completing a VO2 Max test at Halevy Life’s Metabolic Lab, using our clinical-grade equipment, will provide you with a detailed analysis of specific training zones to improve cardiovascular health and aerobic performance. Aside from better performance on your next race or athletic event, an increase in VO2 Max will increase endurance, decrease risk for cardiovascular disease and increase energy reserves.

Anaerobic Threshold (

Anaerobic Threshold ("AT")

Anaerobic Threshold (“AT”)

What is your maximum performance threshold?

Another great test for runners, triathletes, and other endurance athletes, Anaerobic Threshold is the intensity of oxygen consumption in which anaerobic metabolism is accelerated, presented by an increase in ventilation disproportionate to oxygen consumption and/or an increase in lactic acid accumulation.

Whereas VO2 Max is a measure of aerobic capacity, AT is a measure of an athlete’s ability to perform at a percentage of max without physiological limitations. Therefore, AT and speed at the anaerobic threshold is considered the ultimate physiological predictor of aerobic performance. Testing your specific anaerobic threshold will provide our staff with a precise analysis of data to prescribe specific training zones to perfectly transfer into your health-fitness goals.
