BodyGem Metabolism testing

Using the BodyGem Measurement device, our dietitian calculates your BMR/RMR  (which is the number of calories you burn at rest each day). You will breathe normally into a mouthpiece, while at rest, for five to 10 minutes. For best results, you are advised not to eat, exercise or smoke for about four hours before testing. You receive results immediately and may combine the assessment with a nutrition consultation. $75 for measurement only members and nonmembers/$104 for measurement and one-hour dietitian consultation members and nonmembers. To schedule an appointment, call (513) 246 2606 or email Caitlin Ottaway,
