Would you like to know your Metabolic Rate?

Our MetaCheck Metabolic Rate Test is a simple, 10 minute breath test. During the test, the air you breathe out is analyzed to determine exactly how much oxygen your body consumed. You will receive a full page printout that will compare your metabolic rate to predicted normal values based on your height, age, weight, & sex. It will also suggest caloric intake based on your metabolic rate. Body fat and weight will also be measured on our scale.  

Contact Stephanie to schedule your appointment & learn about test preparation. By appointment only. Stop by fitness office to view a sample printout.
