Measurements For Optimal Results:
The Harding Medical Institutes nutritional and fitness prescriptions are based on specialized testing and measurements, to provide the best information about your metabolism, exercise endurance, and body composition, so you can efficiently achieve weight loss. In the past these measurements have only been available to elite athletes by using cumbersome, expensive equipment, and were generally only available at hospitals and research centers.
The MetaCheck™ provides an accurate, professional metabolic rate measurement. Measuring your metabolic rate allows for our physicians to construct an effective weight loss plan based on your individual caloric needs. As a result, our physicians are able to give you a specific calorie count to achieve your body composition goals based on your metabolism. This provides a scientific method for your body to burn calories and achieve goals rapidly.MetaCheck™ Metabolic Rate Analysis System – Do you have a slow metabolism?
Resting Metabolic Rate
The resting metabolic rate provides the amount of energy expressed in calories that a person needs to keep the body functioning at rest. Some of those processes are breathing, blood circulation, controlling body temperature, cell growth, brain and nerve function, and contraction of muscles. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) affects the rate that a person burns calories and ultimately whether that individual maintains, gains, or loses weight.
BMI- Body Mass Index
This is a measure of body fat based on height and weight for adult women.
CardioCoach CO2™ : Train Smarter, Not Harder
The CardioCoach CO2™ Testing is the new scientific way to work out. It provides important data, which our physicians use to customize an individual’s exercise prescription.
Advanced V02 Exercise Assessments & VO2 Max
A VO2 test measures the amount of oxygen your body uses at different heart rate levels as you exercise. This is done as you breathe through a mask during an exercise evaluation and your caloric burn is measured. The recorded information is then used by our physicians to calculate your personal heart rate Target Intensity Zones. These specific heart rate zones will give you the specific target heart rates required for each level of exercise intensity. Exercising within your target heart rate zones will get you the results that will amaze you. Target Intensity Zones will maximize your workout with fewer injuries, less fatigue, less pain and result in rapid results.*
The DEXA test allows our physicians to analyze your risk for developing bone fractures. The risk of fracture is affected by age, body weight, history of prior fracture, family history of osteoporotic fractures and life style issues such as cigarette smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. These factors are taken into consideration when deciding the workout program or if specific supplementation for bone health should be taken to minimize risk factors.
Total Body Composition Scans
The total body scan gives accurate bone density, lean muscle mass and body fat percentiles. Our physicians will use this information to design a comprehensive workout program for you to achieve your short-term and long-term fitness and health goals.
