About Metabolic Efficiency Tests

Our Metabolic Efficiency Tests determine the amount of energy (calories) your body uses when in motion, by either running on a treadmill or cycling on an upright, power based stationary bike.

During the test, a comfortable mask will be placed over your mouth and nose to measure the amount of oxygen your body uses and carbon dioxide produced. The test will begin with a low and comfortable warm up, with intensity increasing in wattage or pace every two to four minutes thereafter. A Sparks Systems testing administrator will be monitoring the rate in which the body consumes oxygen, as well as heart rate and rate of perceived exertion (RPE). Once sub-max or maximum effort is reached, and the peak level of oxygen consumption recorded, a two-minute cool-down period will begin to assess how quickly your cardiovascular system recovers.

After performing a metabolic test, clients will be provided with their individual testing report which includes their metabolic efficiency point, aerobic threshold, lactate threshold, VO2, individual heart rate training zones and a preliminary overview of the best action plan suited for you to reach your goals.
