Maximise Your Potential with VO2 Max Testing
Improve your lifestyle with Vidacare’s VO2 Max testing service, available in our health screening clinic in Blackrock, Co. Dublin. This technique, once exclusive to high-performance athletes, measures your body’s maximal oxygen consumption during exercise. Conducted on a treadmill, bike, or rower, it equips you with detailed insights into your fitness level, thereby aiding in the design of more effective training programs.
Improve Your Health & Wellbeing
Understanding your VO2 Max offers a window into your overall health. There’s a clear correlation between VO2 Max and mortality, with a higher VO2 Max protecting against cardiovascular diseases and reducing risks of lung, gastrointestinal, and prostate cancer. Moreover, it’s linked with decreased dementia risk and depression symptoms. Therefore, improving your VO2 Max positively impacts your health, both currently and in the future.
Resting Metabolic Test
In addition to the VO2 Max test, Vidacare provides the Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) test. This test calculates the number of calories your body burns at rest, which is crucial for those planning weight management and exercise regimens. The RMR test is simple, non-invasive, and takes around 10 to 14 minutes. After the test, Vidacare ensures a thorough discussion of the results to facilitate the design of effective training strategies.
Why have a metabolic test?
Vida Care assists in intelligent weight management through metabolic testing.
People often talk about metabolism and how it affects your health and wellbeing, but do you actually know how your metabolism works? Your resting metabolic rate is one of the most crucial factors affecting how your body maintains its weight in a healthy range which gives you the energy you need for day-to-day activity.
Your metabolic rate will be used to calculate your required calorie intake in order to achieve your goal. Current research confirms that the key to weight loss or gain lies in energy balance. It is so simple… burn more calories than you eat and you will lose weight, eat more calories than you burn and you will gain weight.
