Weight loss is not the only thing our patients want. They want a healthier body and a body that can help them do the things they want to do, and feel the way they want to feel. A good way to look at successful weight loss is to think in terms of improving your body composition. Less fat, more muscle, healthier organs, are all a part of the transformation we hope to achieve for everyone that walks through our door.
Body Composition Testing helps to measure where you are now and will allow you to keep track of how you improve over time. The N.E.W. Program Testing Center offers highly accurate, gold standard body composition testing. It is simple to get an accurate measure and see how you’re doing on your program.
Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) will give you an idea of how many calories your body is burning throughout the day. Although we burn more calories when we exercise, even athletes spend only a small portion of their actual day exercising. Most of the day is spent doing other work or activities. A higher resting metabolic rate is an excellent indicator of what we call our “baseline metabolism” and is an important marker for fitness.
The N.E.W. Program Testing Center offers RMR testing and we encourage our clients to use this measure as a way to track your overall fitness.
