Resting Metabolic Rate and Calorie Profile

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.

DEXA (DXA) Scan

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

Sports Training and Nutrition
