SECA – Body Composition Analysis
Stay at the top of your game by knowing what you’re really made of. The SECA Medical Body Composition Analyzer can help you do just that by accurately determining the amount of muscle, fat, and water in your body. It gives segmental muscle mass distribution across the core, as well as right and left upper and lower extremities. This can help to uncover imbalances so that they can be properly addressed through training. Body water both inside and outside the cell is also measured to set goals for proper hydration needed for optimum endurance and performance. Daily caloric needs are estimated as well a measure on overall cellular integrity and health.
The SECA Body Composition Analyzer measures body composition using many frequencies of electro-magnetic waves that result in body composition measurement equal in accuracy to the gold standards of DEXA, hydrostatic weighing, and the Bod Pod – air displacement. The test is easy to administer and can be completed with you fully clothed (bare feet) and takes only a few minutes.

Resting Metabolic Rate Testing
Many athletes have specific goals that require a calculated number of calories in order to achieve. To reach these goals safely and effectively, it is crucial to know your baseline caloric needs. The resting metabolic rate test uses respiratory exchange technology to directly measure how many calories you burn in a resting, fasted state. Using this measurement, your overall caloric needs can be accurately determined to meet your weight and performance goals.
Resting metabolic rate measurement, re-usable respiratory mask, and consultation with nutrition/fitness specialist: $125
Resting Metabolic Rate Re-test: $95
Performance VO2 Max Test
This test allows you to know your true fitness level by measuring how well your body delivers and utilizes oxygen to burn fuel. Using respiratory exchange technology while you exercise on either the treadmill or your own bike, an exercise physiologist will determine your maximal aerobic capacity and anaerobic threshold. From this information, heart rate training phases can be developed to help you train smart and efficiently to bring your fitness and performance to new levels.

Biofeedback for Athletic Performance / Pain Management
Performing well can depend on having a relaxed mindset that allows you to calm your nerves and compete at your best. Biofeedback training is an evidence-based modality shown to improve anxiety of all types. During the biofeedback session, you will be hooked up to equipment that detects small changes in physiological measures such as your skin temperature, heart rate, and respiration. These changes are graphically displayed for you on a computer screen. With the help of a certified Biofeedback therapist, you will use this information to learn specific breathing techniques to help balance your fight or flight (sympathetic) nervous system with your calming and relaxing (parasympathetic) system. Once learned and practiced, these techniques can be used to reduce anxiety, clear the jitters and allow you to relax and simply execute during competition
Biofeedback breathing techniques can also be useful for dealing with chronic pain associated with sports injuries and overtraining.
The biofeedback session usually lasts 45-50 minutes. The length of the individual session and the amount of sessions that you will need depends entirely upon the condition that you are hoping to treat, however many people find significant symptom relief in three to six sessions.
