There are 2 types of Metabolism Testing protocols that FRESH! performs for our clients.

Here are some of the questions to help you determine which test is right for you:

  • Do you want to lose weight?
  • Do you have nutritional challenges to overcome?
  • Are there lifestyle habits that sabotage your ability to get results?
  • Do you do regular cardiovascular exercise (or do you want to)?
  • Are you training for a specific event?
  • Do you want to experience the benefits of heart rate training?

Answer these questions. The responses will determine the best starting point for you and which tests would be best to perform.
