Exercise testing services are offered to assess the individual’s cardio-respiratory (aerobic) fitness levels and also suitability for exercise. This will enable an effective exercise intensity to be prescribed and also ensure safety during the exercise sessions. The individual can choose between a comprehensive fitness assessment involving maximal exercise testing and muscular strength and endurance test or a basic fitness assessment involving sub-maximal exercise testing and muscular endurance test. Resting metabolic rate assessments are also available to accurately evaluate the individual’s daily caloric needs. This will then help the individual plan out a balanced diet with appropriate calories to achieve weight management goals.
