VO2 Test

The VO2 Test is a simple exercise test which measures your fitness levels, fat burning, provides you with heart rate training zones as well help identify areas in your fitness that you need to improve.

The test is tailored to your fitness level and sport.

Anybody looking to improve their performance or understand their fat burning.




RMR Test

The Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) test measures your kcal burn at rest. This enables us to provide you with a kcal and macro breakdown specific to your metabolism.


Pair with a VO2 test to measure you fat burning during activity.


Who is it for?


Anybody who is looking to understand how much to eat. Especially useful if your goal is weight loss/fat loss.

The metabolic efficiency test is a long form VO2 test which focuses more on fuel usage (carb:fat) at different intensities. This longer test is also more accurate at defining your aerobic threshold, which is important for long distance endurance athletes.

Inscyd Remote Testing

If you find it difficult to come to Birmingham, we also offer remote metabolic testing through INSCYD. This powerful analytical software helps provide a metabolic profile, training zones and fuelling data.
