Fitness Wave (https://fitnesswavenorcal.com/) is coming to OTF DTSV! They're offering 3 tests:
Hydrostatic Body Composition: Hydrostatic weighing is considered the gold standard for body composition testing. It is based on Archimedes principle which states «that when a body is submerged in water, there is a buoyant counter force equal to the weight of the water which is displaced». Since bone and muscle are denser than water, a person with a larger percentage of lean body mass will weigh more in the water and ultimately have a lower body fat percentage versus someone with less lean muscle mass. By obtaining your land weight and water weight (based on buoyancy), Fitness Wave's specialized program can calculate your body fat as a percentage of your total weight.
Resting Metabolic Rate: Testing your metabolic rate will determine how many calories you need to eat daily in order to reach your goal weight. It can indicate if your weight struggle is due to your metabolism. You can retest to reveal how your metabolism has been impacted by dieting, and exercise.
VO2 Sub Max: An initial test clarifies precise target heart rates that enable individuals to exercise with greater efficiency. VO2 is the rate of oxygen uptake, or consumption, measured during exercise. The maximum rate of oxygen uptake is called the VO2max or maximum VO2. VO2max is the ultimate measure of fitness and is reported in milliliters of oxygen per kilogram of body weight per minute or ml/Kg/min. To achieve a high VO2max, a person must have a fit heart and lungs and significant lean muscle mass that is well conditioned.
