testing services not for members only!
We are the only facility in the Chicago land area that offers "State of the Art" testing to help with realizing your fitness goals.
We have people that drive over two hours to get tested and the consulting that comes with. These are the best tests in the business!
While opening up leader1ftness in 2006 we also wanted to bring access to high end testing equipment to athletes as well as anyone looking for extremely precise measurements of their present physiology and how to improve their overall health and fitness. We started a second company, Ultimate Test Lab, that is a mobile lab that travels throughout the midwest delivering these high end tests to gyms, schools and businesses that otherwise wouldn't have access to such "high end" testing.
Resting metabolic testing determines exactly how many calories are burned by the body while at rest and then estimates how many calories are burned during everyday activities and moderate exercise. With this information we can help the client get on a caloric intake that meets the needs of their body without going to far over or under what's optimal for fat loss. The test is 15 minutes followed by an indepth review of the results and how to use the info for the most benefit!
VO2 Max testing is for the competitive athlete as well as anyone that's interested in burning fat. Using top of the line Korr "Cardio Coach" equipment we can analyze precisely what training zones you should be in to match your fitness goals.
For those of you looking to lose some unwanted pounds we can perform a sub-Max test to find out exactly where your Fat burning potential is highest. You will walk away knowing what heart rate range to train at and what rate at which you start burning more sugar then fat. Your fat loss workouts just got a lot more efficient!
As body fat testing, rather than simple scale weight, has become "the standard" in this new millennium, Hydrostatic Testing (underwater weighing) has become universally regarded by industry experts as the "Gold Standard" in body fat testing.
The fact that bone, muscle, and connective tissue collectively known as lean mass sinks, while body fat floats is the main principle behind (hydro-densitometry) hydrostatic testing. By obtaining your land weight and water weight (based on buoyancy), our specialized computer program can scientifically calculate you body fat as a percentage of your total weight.
