Enhancing Accessibility and Convenience

Our mission revolves around bringing our specialized expertise and knowledge directly to our customers, far beyond the confines of our San Rafael main testing facility or our East Bay satellite facility. By extending our services to the East Bay and South Bay areas — including Concord, Walnut Creek, Alamo, Danville, San Ramon, Dublin, Pleasanton, Fremont, Milpitas, San Jose, Santa Clara, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton, Redwood City, San Mateo, South San Francisco, and San Francisco — our primary aim is to offer unparalleled convenience and accessibility to our customers across the entire Bay Area.

Key Features of Our Mobile Service:

  • Pnoe Mobile RMR Testing: Discover your true resting metabolic rate (RMR) conveniently at home or in your office. Comprehending your metabolism is vital as it offers valuable insights not just into your body’s calorie requirements but also into the delicate equilibrium between fat and carbohydrate utilization. This knowledge helps in setting achievable goals for weight management, healthy eating, improved performance, and longevity.
  • Pnoe Mobile Metabolic VO2max Testing: This comprehensive assessment measures the maximum rate at which your body consumes oxygen during incremental exercise. It not only sets a benchmark for personalized fitness goals and boosts athletic performance but also identifies current cardiovascular, respiratory, and metabolic limitations. By pinpointing these areas, Pnoe testing enables targeted interventions to enhance VO2max, overall performance, and metabolic health.
  • Accurate Heart Rate Zone Training: Finally learn your true heart rate zones for effective training and put an end to relying on generalized and inaccurate max heart rate estimates provided by gadgets like Polar, Apple, Garmin, Fitbit, etc.

Why Choose Us?

Our services are anchored in precise data analysis and offer an array of benefits:

  • Personalized Approach: Each metabolic test we conduct is tailored to the individual’s metabolic particularities, helping you achieve your health and performance goals efficiently.
  • Informed Training: Armed with accurate data, you can maximize workout efficiency by targeting specific heart rate zones that align with your objectives, be it improving endurance, fitness, longevity, fat burning, or metabolic health.
  • Professional Expertise: Dr. Jay brings expert knowledge and decades (22+ years) of experience in metabolic testing to your preferred location, ensuring professional quality testing outside a traditional lab environment.

How It Works

For those interested in RMR testing, ensure you have a quiet space to sit or lie down. VO2max testing participants must have access to their own preferred exercise equipment, such as a treadmill or a Wahoo Kickr bike or Smart Trainer for cycling. Our team will handle the rest, bringing our portable metabolic analyzer directly to you.

What additional costs are associated with mobile metabolic testing services?

For mobile metabolic testing, we apply a “mobile add-on” fee to cover travel-related expenses and setup at your location. Specifically, the fee for mobile RMR testing ONLY is $300 per visit. For mobile VO2max testing, OR combined VO2max and RMR testing, the fee is $400 per visit due to the additional time requirements for vo2max testing. This add-on fee covers our travel time, fuel, tolls, and other logistics necessary to provide you with our specialized services directly at your doorstep.

Which geographic locations in the San Francisco Bay Area are eligible for mobile testing services?

Our mobile metabolic testing services are available across the nine major counties of the San Francisco Bay Area. These include San Francisco, Marin, Sonoma, Napa, Solano, Contra Costa, Alameda, Santa Clara, and San Mateo. This broad coverage ensures that we can provide our specialized services to a wide range of clients throughout the region.

Can I use my recumbent bike or Peloton for VO2max cycling testing if I don’t own or have access to a Wahoo trainer with ERG mode?

While we recommend the Wahoo Kickr bike or Smart Trainer for their “ERG” mode capability, which allows US to control the wattage accurately, it is still possible to conduct the test on other stationary bikes like a recumbent bike or Peloton. These bikes require you to manually adjust wattage by changing cadence and resistance, which can be less ideal but still yields accurate results. Please contact us to discuss the specifics before booking your cycling VO2max test without ERG mode equipment.
