The fat burn test is a metabolic efficiency test that measures how your body is using its energy during
During the test, participants will complete a ramp test, on a treadmill or their bicycle, while wearing a
mask to measure ventilation, oxygen and carbon dioxide concentration of the inhaled and exhaled air.
We use the data collected during the test to determine your fuel utilisation in each of your training
zones. We then identify your fatmax, the exercise point at which fat burning peaks, and your crossover
point, the exercise point where you transition from burning primarily fat to carbohydrate.
These points are essential for determining the state of your metabolic condition and making necessary
recommendations about how you can optimise your training, diet and lifestyle so that you lose excess
body fat, and improve endurance performance.
