Pulmonary Services - Performance Evaluations
Participating in a performance evaluation will help optimize workouts and achieve performance goals. The results of the evaluation will enable you to track performance gains and maximize the effectiveness of training sessions. In addition to the evaluation results, you will receive customized guidelines that can be applied in your training.
For Appointments Please Call:
Maximal VO2 (VO2max) Test
This test reflects your aerobic capacity and therefore athletic performance in events requiring high aerobic demands. In addition to providing a marker of training effectiveness, other information obtained during the VO2max test is useful in the planning of training protocols. The test itself is approximately 8 to 12 minutes of graded running or cycling to exhaustion. During the test there will be EKG monitoring and gas analysis via a metabolic cart.
Cost: $80.00 (Includes Max VO2, Maximum Heart Rate, Maximum Power(Watts), Threshold)
This test assesses anaerobic capacity and power. It is useful for athletes requiring short intense efforts and requires an all-out 30 second sprint on a cycle ergometer.
Cost: $20.00 (Maximal Anaerobic Power)
Body Composition via Skinfold Caliper Testing
This test, when performed by a trained technician, provides an accurate measure of body composition. Whether you are tracking weight loss or looking for a specific composition for performance, skinfold testing is cost effective, convenient and accurate.
Indirect Calorimetry (IC)
This test is the Gold Standard for measuring Resting Energy Expenditure (REE). Meeting caloric needs for an athlete is crucial to maximize individual training sessions as well as avoid symptoms of over training. IC requires the individual to rest in a recumbant position for approximately 10 minutes while gas exchange is analyzed via a metabolic cart.
Cost: $20.00 (Resting Metabolic Rate)
