Athletic Mentors-Metabolic Efficiency Class
April 13, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmCost: $135
New this fall, Athletic Mentors is offering a Metabolic Efficiency (ME) class that includes our cutting edge metabolic efficiency testing and a supplemental 2 hour companion class.
Prior to attending the class, the participant will schedule and complete a 40 minute Metabolic Efficiency test at Athletic Mentors in Richland. The sub maximal effort test is performed on a treadmill while wearing a mask that is attached to a metabolic cart. The cart captures and measures the participants’ breath, analyzing in real time the volumes and concentrations of O2 and CO2. This allows us to determine the participants’ proportion and type of “fuel” (fats and carbohydrate) used to meet their individual energy demands at increasing intensities.
The supplemental companion class is a group participation, lecture-style class. We will discuss some fundamental metabolic physiology, as well as, nutritional and exercise based strategies that will aid in improving ME over time. The participants will learn how to interpret and apply their own test results in making informed lifestyle and training decisions, amplifying their journey of improved athletic performance and long term health.
