Metabolic Testing: is it worth it?

What is metabolic testing? you hear lots of different thoughts about it and how it can be expensive and time consuming. At San Diego Training Systems we have a test that takes no more than 1 hour of your time and if you are trying to lose weight, gain lean mass or just simply getting ready for a 5k or your first event this test will give you the information that you need to be successful.

First and foremost you will know your true HR zones, not a guesstimate based on the old formula of 220 minus your age. You will also understand how your body burns both carbs and fat at exercise and where you can optimize that full burn for your events. Additionally you will get your lactate and VO2 max levels that you can apply to different training blocks to improve performance.

This is a great way to understand how with training you can improve how your body will burn fat and carbs. Then by working with a fitness expert you can reach your goals for 2019.
