We test our athletes at our PHASE IV Scientific Health and Performance Center in Santa Monica, California. This scientific metabolic testing is at the foundation of Sports Performance Science. Our testing allows us to see what is happening inside your body during exercise, and provides the data to create accurate heart-rate training zones. This allows for 100% productivity from your workouts, maximizes fitness outcomes, and prevents over training injury.
Why VO2 test? As exercise intensity increases so does your heart rate. As your heart rate increases your body’s preferred energy source shifts from primarily burning fat to burning carbohydrate. Whether your goal is to lose weight, look better, or perform at your best, finding the "Optimal Fat Burning Exercise Heart Rate Zone” is the starting point for all science based exercise and training programs. By training in the proper zone you will teach your body to burn more fat all day long and during exercise; allowing you to achieve your goals faster and with greater efficiency while reducing unwanted body fat. Proper heart rate training is essential to optimizing your exercise efforts. Only VO2 testing provides the precise exercise heart rate zones you need to improve your health and achieve ideal body weight. Our portable testing lab is available for teams and club sports.
