We can schedule our follow-up meeting to review your results and recommendations if a part of your selected package to make sense of the results and to create a personalized plan for you based on goals if weight loss, performance and/or longevity!

Here is an overview of the process so we can be prepared in advance.

  3. Activity specific goals as cycling or running?
  4. Sport specific goal – endurance, power or speed…track cycling or road cycling?

Preparation prior to the RMR test guidelines:

The PNOE Metabolic test is a comprehensive analysis of your metabolism, which measures your body’s ability to utilize oxygen and produce energy during both rest and exercise. Before undergoing a PNOE Metabolic test, there are several preparations you should consider:

  1. Refrain from eating or drinking anything except water for at least four hours before the test (3-5 hours)
  2. Avoid alcohol and caffeine for 24 hours before the test.
  3. Avoid engaging in any strenuous exercise or physical activity for at least 24 hours before the test. This ensures that your body is rested and ready for the test.  No intense exercise or any exercise of more than one hour 24 hours prior to testing.
  4. Wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes suitable for exercise.
  5. Avoid wearing any jewelry or accessories that may interfere with the test equipment.
  6. Inform the testing technician of any medical conditions, medications, or dietary supplements you are taking. These may affect the results of the test.
  7. Arrive at the testing facility at least 10-15 minutes before the scheduled appointment to allow time for registration and any necessary paperwork (do homework listed above three days before the test)
  8. Follow any additional instructions provided by the testing facility or your healthcare provider, such as avoiding smoking or using any inhalers before the test.

By following these preparations, you can help ensure the accuracy and effectiveness of your PNOE Metabolic test results

Exercise Test: Be sure to complete the question on the scheduling link intake form to learn the recent history of fitness program so we can determine the best protocol for your needs and goals.

Testing overview:  If doing both the RESTING and the ACTIVE testing together, we will start with the RMR test first (apx. 10 minutes) then we will set up for the exercise test which is divided into three parts:

  1. 3-minute warm up
  2. 9–12-minute exercise test
  3. 2–3-minute recovery


What markers does the PNOE Metabolic Test provide you?

The PNOE Metabolic exercise test covers several markers related to your metabolism and energy production during exercise.

These markers include:

  1. VO2 Max: This is the maximum amount of oxygen that your body can utilize during exercise, and it is a measure of your overall cardiovascular fitness.
  2. Anaerobic Threshold: This is the point during exercise where your body begins to rely more on anaerobic (without oxygen) energy production, and it is an important marker of exercise intensity and endurance.
  3. Aerobic Efficiency: This is a measure of how efficiently your body can use oxygen to produce energy during exercise, and it is influenced by factors such as your heart rate, breathing rate, and muscle activation patterns.
  4. Fat and Carbohydrate Utilization: This measures the relative contribution of fat and carbohydrate metabolism to energy production during exercise, which can help optimize your training and nutrition strategies.
  5. Respiratory Exchange Ratio (RER): This is a measure of the ratio of carbon dioxide produced to oxygen consumed during exercise and is used to determine which fuel source (fat or carbohydrate) your body is using during exercise.
  6. Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR): This measures the amount of energy your body uses at rest and can help determine your daily caloric needs.

By measuring these markers, the PNOE Metabolic exercise test provides a comprehensive analysis of your metabolism and can help optimize your training, nutrition, and overall health.
