Our team is committed to optimizing your health, your body—and your life! And sometimes when it comes to improving overall function, the missing link is nutrition and diet. After all, nourishing our bodies with proper fuel allows for maximum recovery and is critical in helping us reach our fitness goals. Being proactive about your nutrition will ensure that your energy levels are high so that you can achieve optimal health. This is especially important if you have sustained an injury and you are on the path to recovery.

What is metabolic testing?

Your resting metabolic rate (or RMR) reflects the number of calories you burn when in a resting state (e.g. sitting in a chair). An awareness of your RMR can estimate your calorie requirements for everyday life, helping you ensure you’re nourishing your body adequately for exercise or weight management. The MedGem™ device is the hand-held machine that measures your RMR and can be used anywhere to provide fast and accurate results. The test itself involves breathing normally into the device for 5 to 10 minutes. Your results are available immediately.
