Blood Lactate Testing
“Thank you for the testing, I found out more about my own fitness and nutrition than I knew there was to know!”
What is it?
The blood lactate test is done to determine your lactate threshold during exercise. During an exercise test, blood lactate samples are taken along with other data points at gradually increasing intensities.
Why would I need it?
As intensity increases, lactate production increases and reaches levels that are reflective of a loss of aerobic efficiency. In general, low levels of lactate are the sign of an efficient aerobic system. High lactate levels at easy workloads are a sign of an underdeveloped aerobic system, while high lactate levels at maximal workloads are a sign of a well-developed anaerobic system. Over time and with correct training, lactate levels at given workloads will decrease, indicating an improvement in aerobic conditioning and allowing training at higher intensities.Body Composition Testing
Find out your body composition on a medical grade body composition analyzer. This shows your percentage of muscle and fat, as well as where the muscle is distributed (between each arm and leg) and fluid status (total body water and intra and extra cellular water). This information provides a great snapshot in time in order to measure the efficacy of weight loss, muscle changes, etc.
