Synergy ONE Clinical Services:
The Synergy ONE mission is to promote sound guidance to the general public on strategies for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight & lifestyle through the Synergies of Optimal Nutrition & Exercise. We practice our mission daily by applying evidence-based science, math, and state-of-the-art technology to health, fitness, wellness, and sports performance. Visit our Synergy ONE page for more info.
1. Clinical Health Appraisal & CVD Risk Assessment
This process includes a thorough review & evaluation of your Medical History, including Lab Tests (if available), and an assessment of your Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Risk Factors to determine your American College of Sports Medicine Risk Stratification, and whether or not you need to be referred for a Medical Evaluation & Physical Exam before participating in Exercise Testing
2. Synergy ONE Optimal Nutrition & Exercise Web Pro & Go Mobile App
The Synergy ONE App is a professional meal planning and nutrition & exercise logging tool. Your personalized meal plan, grocery list, daily caloric goal and weight control goal are setup by your counselor on your web cloud account, then pushed to the Synergy ONE app. The nutritional and weight management goals include your daily calorie budget, goal weight, Body Fat %, macro-nutrient ratios (proteins, carbohydrates, & fats) and other important factors that attribute to better overall health, wellness, performance, and weight control. This is a great weight loss program that allows you to be more cognizant of how certain factors can affect the overall success of your fitness program.
3. Body Composition Assessment
Based on ACSM Guidelines using a 2 compartment model (fat mass & lean mass), we determine your Body Fat % and take your circumference measurements at specific anatomical locations. With your weight and Body Fat %, we can calculate your Lean Body Mass (muscle, organs, skeleton), which is the metabolically active piece that we try to preserve & maintain while reducing weight and Body Fat %.
4. 3-Day Nutrition Log Nutrient Analysis
With your 3-Day Nutrition Log, we create a model of your current eating habits and compare your energy (calories) and macronutrient (proteins, carbohydrates, and fats) intake against recommendations from predictive equations. We can identify overconsumption of energy and micronutrient (vitamin & mineral) deficiencies in order to recommend foods to meet the published RDAs (Recommended Daily Allowances).
5. Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Test, Report, & Interpretation
Metabolism, quite simply, is the conversion of food to energy. Metabolic rate is a measure of how much food, or fat, is converted to energy in a day. Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is the measurement of how much food, or energy, is required to maintain basic body functions such as heartbeat, breathing, and maintenance of body heat (core temp) while you are in a fasted state of rest (baseline homeostasis). That energy is expressed in calories per day. So, an RMR test shows precisely how many calories you burn at rest in a day. With your RMR test results, your history, and your specific goals, we design personalized nutrition programs with daily meal plans & grocery lists to be delivered directly to your Synergy ONE Web Pro & Go Mobile profile. We use the Synergy ONE platform to monitor your nutrition & exercise, and to chart your body composition changes. The reports that we can generate from your data that we collect are remarkable!
6. Functional Movement Screen (FMS) + Corrective Exercise Rx (CExRx)
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is the innovative bio mechanical screening system used by the Corrective Exercise Specialists at TOPS Athletics. We use it to identify limitations or asymmetries in seven fundamental movement patterns that are key to functional movement quality. Based on your screen, your TOPS FMS Certified Coach (FMSC) and Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) will develop a customized Corrective Exercise Prescription (CExRx) tailored to meet your needs, continually tracking and updating your plan as you progress. You will receive a hard copy of your FMS Report and your CExRX, and you will have access to your profile & records through our web platform.
7. Synergy ONE 7-Day Meal Plan from RMR w/ Grocery List
Your Synergy ONE Meal Plan contains 7 unique days of Breakfast, Snack 1, Lunch, Snack 2, Dinner, & Snack 3 (optional) based on your 3-Day Nutrient Analysis, your RMR Test results, and your specific goals. Your likes & dislikes are factored, as well as any over-consumption or deficiencies. Through your Synergy ONE Web Profile & Go Mobile App, you have the ability to exchange foods within the same food group, and our algorithm adjusts the portions of your exchanges to keep you within your daily caloric budget. By shuffling the days (labeled Day 1 - Day 7) in your plan, and by utilizing your exchange utility to create variety, a 7-Day Meal Plan should last, at least, 1 month. After 6-8 weeks, your RMR should be retested, and your meal plan adjusted accordingly to your new metabolic rate.
8. Cardiovascular Fitness (VO2) Test + Custom Cardio Plan (Cardio Rx)
This test, also know as a VO2max or VO2submax test, determines your level of Cardiovascular Fitness by measuring your Oxygen consumption and Carbon Dioxide expiration at various Heart Rates based on systematically increasing exercise intensity. Your level of Cardiovascular Fitness is compared to Relative Norm Charts based on your Gender & Age. The test also pinpoints your Aerobic Threshold (AeT) Heart Rate (Fat Burning Zone), your Anaerobic Threshold (AT) Heart Rate (HIIT & EPOC Zone), and your true Maximum Heart Rate. It also precisely calculates the exact number of calories your body burns at any given Heart Rate, as well as the number of Fat Calories and Carbohydrate Calories at each Heart Rate, so you can accurately track Caloric Expenditure and design precision Custom Cardio Plans based on your tested fitness level and specific goals.
