  • North Lakes Fitness Assessment, Orientation, and Testing
    The assessment gauges your current fitness level to determine your fitness needs and goals. In the assessment, a certified fitness professional takes your blood pressure and performs a flexibility measurement, a muscular endurance test, a cardio-respiratory endurance test, and a maximum strength test. In addition, the specialist will use the Ironman Tantia Scale to determine your metabolic age, body fat percentage, body water percentage, muscle mass, bone bass, basal metabolic rate, and visceral fat. Cost is $50 per person. Call (940) 349-8287 to schedule an appointment.

  • Metabolic Testing
    This test determines how many calories your body burns and calculates how many calories you should eat to lose or maintain weight. This is a great way to troubleshoot a frustrating plateau.

    This initial test is $35. A $25 follow-up will be available as needed. 
  • VO2 Testing
    By measuring your heart rate and oxygen consumption (VO2), we determine how many calories you burn while exercising and your true target workout zone.
