Expect detailed training suggestions, hand-outs and an open Q&A session.

Physical Testing:

The combined fee for both tests is $59 for members, $65 for non-members. Separate registration required at: Register for Physical Tests

The tests are optional; you are welcome to attend the seminar without being tested. The tests will be conducted in such a way as to not interfere with your participation in the seminar.

Resting Metabolic Rate: Determine your exact metabolic and caloric needs. Determining your resting metabolic rate and caloric needs is crucial to safely and effectively lose weight, gain weight, enhance recovery, and have more energy! CCNS will help you determine your exact caloric needs using advanced calorimetry.

Body Composition Analysis: Are you too heavy? Are you too thin? How much weight can you lose and still maintain your optimal power? CCNS can help you determine you body composition and appropriate race weight. CCNS will help you feel confident about your weight standards and establish perfect weight loss goals and programs.
