Hydrostatic Weighing

Hydrostatic Weighing

£250.00

Description

Hydrostatic weighing is commonly known as “underwater weighing”. This method of measuring body composition uses the hydrodensitometry technique to accurately measure lean tissue which is denser than body fat tissue.

Biomechanics

Flexibility

Flexibility

£65.00

Description

In order to minimise injury risk and maximise performance potential in recreational and competitive exercisers alike, it is paramount to have adequate flexibility. This assessment aims to measure dynamic flexibility, or rather the strength and function of the muscles involved in moving a joint through its full range of motion.

Energy Expenditure

7 Day Physical Activity Energy Expenditure with Actiheart

7 Day Physical Activity Energy Expenditure with Actiheart

£165.00

Description

Test Description: The Actiheart is a compact, chest-worn device that records heart rate and physical activity. This is fitted to electrodes on the chest, similar to an ECG.

Resting Metabolic Rate

Resting Metabolic Rate

£50.00

Description

This is a measurement of the rate at which metabolic processes occur to support body tissues and break down fuel sources for energy.

Heat Acclimation

Heat Acclimation - 1 Session

Heat Acclimation - 1 Session

£95.00

Description

Heat acclimation or acclimatisation is an effective means of improving the body’s ability to cope with heat exposure.

Heat Acclimation - 5 Sessions

Heat Acclimation - 5 Sessions

£370.00

Description

Heat acclimation or acclimatisation is an effective means of improving the body’s ability to cope with heat exposure.

Altitude Training

Altitude Training - 1 Session

Altitude Training - 1 Session

£95.00

Description

Exercising at altitude is notoriously more difficult due to reduced oxygen availability, but can also pose a greater threat to the potentially dangerous side effects of altitude sickness. By performing altitude training in a controlled environment simulating altitude conditions, it is possible to gradually become conditioned and adapted to operating with reduced oxygen supply. Not just suitable for those preparing to compete at altitude, the positive physiological adaptations incurred from altitude training will also potentially increase performance in athletes who compete at sea level.
