Physiological fitness testing is an objective way to:

  • Accurately establish an individual’s fitness level
  • Better understand where current exercising regimen is lacking
  • Determine appropriate training plan to meet an individual’s goals
  • Avoid over-training, which may increase the risk of injury
  • Establish individualized strength, endurance or weight loss objectives
  • Help establish a data-driven nutrition plan correlating with personalized exercise plan that does not rely on estimations or equations
  • Measure “before and after” changes


Each Test: $299
Periodic Retest: $249

CERULEAN Physiological Fitness Testing provides:

1. Comprehensive Assessment

CERULEAN comprehensive physiological testing provides in-depth understanding of an individual’s cardiovascular system, as well as individualized metabolic needs in terms of macro- and micronutrients. CERULEAN’s complete physiological work-up does not just determine VO2 max, but delivers a comprehensive diagnostic test that would otherwise require a referral to the pulmonologist, cardiologist and nutritionist. Our testing includes:

  • Metabolic CartResting Metabolic Rate
    • How Many Calories Should I Consume?
  • Nutritional Assessment
    • What Type/Percentages of Macronutrients?
    • What Should I Look for in a Multivitamin?
  • Pulmonary Function Testing
    • Do I Have Any Underlying Lung Conditions?
  • Hemodynamic Response to Exercise (Rest, Stress, Recovery)
    • Does My Heart Rate, Blood Pressure and Oxygen Saturation Respond Normally?
  • 12-Lead Electrocardiography (Rest & Stress)
    • Do I Have Any Underlying Heart Conditions?
  • VO2 max & Anaerobic Threshold Performance Testing
    • How Fit Am I?
    • How Can I Optimize the Efficiency of My Exercise?

2. Medical-grade Equipment

CERULEAN uses the only metabolic cart manufacturer approved for use in medical-grade research. All technicians have undergone rigorous training in order to guarantee quality of testing that would only be found in physiology labs or hospitals. Furthermore, volume and gas calibrations are performed prior to- and immediately following every test in order to ensure validity of all data obtained.

3. Easy-to-understand Recommendations

CERULEAN understands that the variables obtained during our testing is not always easily understood, so rather than just reporting raw data, CERULEAN analyzes all data in order to create actionable recommendations that can be easily understood and applied to improve the efficiency of any individual’s physical training regimen.

  • bpm-chartMaximal Heart Rate Training Zones- What HR Should I Train at to Reach My Goals?
    • Strategic analysis of HR at anaerobic threshold allows for individualized heart rate zones for weight loss (peak fat metabolism) and improved fitness (transition to glycogen/carbohydrate metabolism) to be generated.
  • Lactate Threshold Training Zones – What training zones are best for me?
    • Analysis of HR/Power at anaerobic threshold allows for an individualized lactate threshold training regimen to be established, which if followed, will allow for high intensity exercise to be tolerated for an extended period of time.
  • Training Recommendations- What Exercises Am I Capable Of/Will Achieve Goals?
    • Based on the achieved relative VO2 max (ml/kg/min) equated into terms of metabolic equivalents (METs), CERULEAN is able to recommend exercises that are safe, yet effective for meeting or exceeding an athlete’s goals
    • Metabolic Equivalents Training decreases risk of overtraining
  • nutrition planNutritional Assessment/Recommendations – How many calories should I eat in a day?
    • Individualized metabolic needs established during a resting metabolic rate test are strategically analyzed to customize macronutrient, micronutrient and supplementation plans specific to an individual’s goals, whether it be weight maintenance, improved fitness or any other.

Individualized Nutrition Recommendation Plans


Regardless of a person’s training regimen, athletic pre-disposition or motivation for lifestyle change, providing the body with the deliberate nutritional fuel that it needs to run at optimal capacity, is essential to being able to reset athletic plateaus, optimize recovery or reach weight management goals.

Nutrition is one of the most difficult and often confusing aspects of a healthy lifestyle, as sports medicine research is often disproving common myths associated with a clean diet. For example, the latest research on nutrient timing optimization suggests that the time when a meal is being consumed is far more important than the food that is being consumed itself, challenging previous black and white ideology of what foods are good or bad for you.

Our Physiological Fitness Testing, not only generate results that allow for data-driven and objective caloric and macronutrient recommendations to optimize a person’s athletic performance or weight management goals, but it also includes a significant amount of education derived from the latest research available.

Physiological Assessment Test + Complete Nutrition Plan: $749

Macronutrient recommendations can be further customized to meet the demands of an individual’s goals or an athlete’s training regimen and competition schedule. Following the Physiological Fitness Test, this program includes an assessment of current dietary habits, goals, and training schedule, in order to produce an entirely individualized 10-day caloric and food consumption recommendation plan (cycled or integrated into meal prep) broken down into:

  • Rigorous Exercise Days
  • Rest/Recovery Days
  • Upcoming Competition (Carb-Loading Cycle)
  • Competition Days

Once you provide us with your schedule, this plan will help you understand what to eat (and more importantly, when to eat it) to truly optimize your performance on competition day, lose weight or meet the goals set ahead. It’s that simple!

Physiological Assessment Test + Ultimate 3-Month Package: $999

Proper nutrition is a game of endurance, not a sprint. It often requires several months of dedication leading up to competition day or to see significant quantifiable results. The Ultimate 3-Month Package includes the same in-depth Physiological Fitness Test and individualized nutrition recommendations plan, but further includes:

  • Monthly Resting Metabolic Rate Evaluation: Avoid plateaus associated with traditional dieting by re-evaluating an individual’s dynamic metabolic needs.

  • Monthly Nutrition Planning review: Each month, the plan provides 10 full days worth of meal planning, which can be cycled or integrated into a data-driven meal prep plan.

    • Rigorous Exercise Days
    • Rest/Recovery Days
    • Upcoming Competition (Carb-Loading Cycle)
    • Competition Days

  • Follow-Up Physiological Fitness Re-Test: A follow-up re-test at the (90) day anniversary, will objectively show the progress that has been made during the (3) month of dedicated food planning, and how it has related to improvements in cellular and cardiovascular health.
