The Fitness Laboratory is a state-of-the-art lab designed to assess the physiological effects of exercise on the human body. Data from laboratory testing provides precise and accurate answers to the following questions:

  • What is my body fat percentage?
  • What is my “fat burning” range?
  • How many calories do I burn at rest?
  • How many calories do I burn during exercise?
  • What is my ideal target heart rate?
  • How fit am I?
  • What is my cholesterol level?
  • Where do I stand compared to others my age?


The purpose of the Fitness Laboratory is to provide scientific support to those striving to achieve improved performance, health and wellness. The program includes testing, other assessments and a consultation with a certified exercise physiologist who will interpret test data, provide tips on how to apply your results and make your exercise/training program as successful as possible.
