Services We Offer In South Florida

Cleveland Clinic Florida's Performance and Fitness Evaluation Program offers a series of assessments which measure various components of fitness and provides information for designing individualized fitness programs.

Aerobic Capacity Test (VO2 Max)

Also referred to as the Maximum Oxygen Consumption Test, this assessment measures the maximum amount of oxygen an athlete can use during intense activity levels. It is a good gauge of cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance levels.

Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)

The Resting Metabolic Rate is an important test for creating a diet plan and individualizing weight loss. It is useful for determining how many calories a patient burns during the day taking into account general activity levels.

Body Composition Analysis

Body composition analysis measures an individual’s percentage of lean muscle mass to body fat. Decreasing body fat leads to improved overall health and well-being. This assessment may include a number of measurements and calculations, including:

  • Skinfold measurement
  • Body weight
Target Heart Rate Zone Analysis

Evaluating an athlete’s target heart rate helps to establish training protocols in which the athlete can gain the maximum aerobic benefit.

Our evaluations and programs are tailored to an individual’s age, sex, sport, activity, existing fitness level and fitness goals. Evaluations may include a thorough medical history and physical examination to detect certain medical conditions like heart disease, high blood pressure and other cardiac risk factors.
