A comprehensive report highlighting relevant findings and personalized recommendations are provided.

A comprehensive analysis including:

  • Movement screen or musculoskeletal evaluation to identify any flexibility or strength limitations that may impact your swing
  • Video analysis of swing mechanics using video capture technology
  • Comprehensive report highlighting relevant findings and personalized recommendations to make swing improvements

The overhead musculoskeletal screen is for overhead athletes of all ages and abilities, including baseball, softball, lacrosse, tennis, and volleyball players. The screen includes assessments of:

  • Range of motion, flexibility, and strength
  • Sports specific movement
  • Power and endurance

Scientific analysis of power output – useful information for athletes where power production or explosiveness counts.

For clients trying to lose or gain weight, or who want to design an individualized nutrition plan. RMR is measured in a rested, fasting state to obtain the most accurate representation of the minimum amount of calories your body requires to function.

The Caloric Expenditure Profile measures the number of calories burned at various intensities of exercise. The number of calories burned from fat versus carbohydrate stores is also measured. This information is useful for planning fueling for endurance events and for establishing training zones. 

The gold standard for body composition analysis, this scan accurately measures body fat, bone density and muscle mass.
