Traditionally, physiological testing has only been available to the elite or wealthy. METS Performance Consulting recognises this significant gap and understands the commitments recreational, amateur, age-group and sub-elite athletes put into their training and competition performances. As a result, we have created a Victorian-based company which provides elite level metabolic testing at the most affordable prices and easily accessible locations. We have the option to be completely mobile* - meaning we can come to you anywhere in Victoria completely free of charge. Our testing protocols and data accuracy is reliable, and our testing unit has been trialed and validated by the Australian Institute of Sport.
We offer services aimed at all athletes looking to improve their performances, as well as the general population looking to lose weight and lead a healthier lifestyle:
- VO₂ max/submax testing: Find out your current VO₂ max value along with your anaerobic threshold, power/speed thresholds, training zones, energy expenditure, maximum heart rate and lactate inflection point (optional).
- Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) testing: Find out how many calories you burn at rest so you can develop a dietary program guaranteed to lose progressive, steady and healthy weight loss.
- Performance Consulting: Easy to understand consultation session which covers HOW to train and WHY you should use these methods. It covers everything you need to know in a single consultation to develop your own training program if you choose not to hire a coach.
- 3 month training programs: Online program designed specifically for you using your unique physiological data, individual training zones, training history and goals.
METS strives to take the guess work out of training protocols and provide the most up to date, scientifically proven training methods to optimise competition performance and individual training goals. All testing, coaching and consultations will be conducted by Accredited Exercise Scientists who have obtained a minimum of a bachelor's degree in Exercise and Sports Science and gained membership with Exercise and Sport Science Australia (ESSA).
