Metabolic Testing
RMR, VO2 Max &
Anaerobic Threshold
Whether you are looking to loose weight or increase peformance, metabolic testing can help you reach your goals. Our resting metabolic rate tests rates your metabolism and gives you a gauge of how many calories per day that you need to maintain or lose weight. Our VO2 - anaerobic threshold tests let you know your true heart rate zones to get the most out of your fat burning ability while you do your cardio workouts. Runners and cyclists can also take their sport and racing to the next level by getting heart rate zones to help with realistic heart rate training goals. Check out the links below for more info about both tests and call us at 713-523-2577 if you have questions about testing and how it can benefit your fitness goals.

$99.00 per person @ the Houston Downtown YMCA
Great for the beginner or intermediate weight trainer who wants a 3 1/2 hour crash course on how to get started with a safe and effective weight-training program. These classes include 1 hour of classroom instruction on the importance of effective weight training, how to design your own weight training program and other training tips from certified fitness trainer, Michael Merlino. Following classroom instruction 2 1/2 hours are spent on the weight room floor reviewing proper form and technique of Michael's recommended weight training exercises. Towards the end of the workshop participants are split up in teams of 2 to practice each exercise and receive feedback from Michael. Each participant also receives a written workout plan along with an exercise summary that reviews how to perform each exercise. Classes are limited to 8 students and held at the Downtown YMCA on the second Saturday of each month from 2:30-6:00 pm. See our current class schedule below. All participants must also pay a $10.00 YMCA guest fee and may incur additional parking fees to park downtown.
