Know Your Numbers

Are you exercising and watching what you eat and still not getting results? Have you hit a plateau? Your Resting Metabolic Rate, or RMR, determines the exact number of daily calories your body requires to maintain and/or lose weight. When you know your unique metabolic rate, you have insight into your “weight loss window”. An easy test, you simply sit or lie down and breathe! In addition to the RMR, our complete testing panel includes lipid profile, blood pressure and body fat percentage. Marsh Exercise Physiologist, Evan Strewler, will be happy to talk
with you about the value of this assessment.

To schedule your test, call Maria WooChing at 952-935-8529. As blood work requires fasting, tests are scheduled mornings only: Monday through Friday. $75/$90
