Fitness Testing | Overview

Updated: Jun 7, 2023

A deep dive into my experience with a DEXA scan, RMR Test, and VO2 Max test at Live Lean RX in Austin, TX.


As someone who is very motivated by data, whenever I prepare to start on a new block of fitness training, I like to make sure I have a clear understanding of my baseline. I find that having detailed data helps me formulate a plan that I am confident in, and it provides me with progress indicators to keep me on track. This go around, I decided it was time to take that to the next level by getting some professional tests done, taking advantage of the technology that used to be reserved only for elite athletes.

This three-part blog series will dive into my experience with the DEXA scan, Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) test, and VO2 Max test. I felt that doing this deep dive was worthwhile because there currently isn't enough information out there to help people understand why these tests are worth the price, even if you aren't an elite athlete. I am confident that these tests will help you train smarter and increase your likelihood of succeeding at whatever your health goals may be.

All tests were administered by Jessica at Live Lean RX. in Austin TX. Please reach out to her if in the area and let her know where you read about their services. This testing was done independent of insurance for an all-in cost of $235. See the Live Lean website for pricing and to schedule an appointment.
