Sports Nutrition

In sports performance, it goes without saying that timing is everything. This also applies to your nutrition in the lead up to and during the event. Knowing when to have your carbohydrates, protein, etc (and in what proportion) is important. At BodyPlan we also offer sports nutrition and dietetics services. Please phone our friendly team to find out more.

Metabolic Rate Testing – at BodyPlan we offer Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) testing. This information allows you to know how many calories you burn at rest. It gives you valuable information about the amount of energy you use and should be re-assessed when you feel you may be experiencing a plateau (where you are putting in all the effort but not seeing the results).

VO2 Testing – how big is your engine? VO2 testing assesses your aerobic capacity and what can ascertain what heart rate zones you need to be working in to achieve the results you are looking for.
