The Begin program is a 10-week program taught in a group setting or individual setting. The program is designed to have significant impact on a participant's biometrics, weight and lifestyle.

Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Test - $45

The MedGem test is conducted by measuring resting oxygen consumption (VO2) to determine your resting metabolic rate (RMR).  This test will take approximately 10 minutes.  Your body combines food with oxygen to generate energy.  This MedGem test measures the amount of oxygen your body consumes and determines how many calories you burn at rest. Denise will recommend a healthy calorie level based off this number and provide a breakdown of carbohydrates, protein and fat.
