Exercise and Fitness
i would like to have a fitness evaluation. ie:treadmill stress EKG, VO2 max, RMR, bodyfat, etc. Were can i get evaluation done?
Depending of the facility, some fitness centers or health clubs may be able to perform all of the tests you are talking about. However, some of the tests (i.e., VO2 max, EKG, RMR) because of the invasiveness and equipment needed, are generally performed by a cardiologist, family physicians, etc. At our facility, University Fitness at the University of Cincinnati, we can perform body compositions and test your muscular strength or flexibility.
