Accomplished runners, long distance triathletes (half iron, full ironman), ultra runners, competitive cyclists, adventure racers or mountaineers.
IGNITE - Body Composition Package
IGNITE is a testing package designed specifically to help you improve your body composition (fat loss, weight loss) to help you understand what you should be eating and how to exercise for your fat loss goals.
The package combines an RMR test to measure your metabolism so we know how much you should be eating for your goal, and a metabolic efficiency/fat max test to measure your kcal and fat burning rates when you exercise.
