Dr. Bill Campbell, is an Associate Professor of Exercise Science and Director of the Performance and Physique Enhancement Laboratory at the University of South Florida.
PRIDE uses the same fitness assessment tools that are used in Dr. Bill Campbell’s Performance & Physique Enhancement Laboratory:
“The reason why I think it is essential to monitor one’s resting metabolic rate is to make sure that their metabolism is not being harmed when engaging in a lower calorie diet. Losing weight must be done in a controlled manner, and if this is not adhered to, one’s metabolism can and will be suppressed. By following a scientifically based weight loss program and by periodically assessing one’s metabolic rate, we can be sure that each individual is setting themselves up for long-term weight loss success.” - Dr. Campbell
“Of all the different methods to assess body composition, I prefer using ultrasound technology. Ultrasound technology provides very precise measurements (down to the millimeter) of body fat levels at numerous sites on the body.” - Dr. Campbell
COSMED FITMATE PRO MACHINE
The COSMED fit mate pro is a simplified approach to metabolic testing. The Fitmate measures oxygen uptake (at rest or during exercise) with the same accuracy of conventional systems with both O2 and CO2 sensors, but provides an easier test process (no warm-up).
BODYMETRIX PRO ULTRASOUND MACHINE
The BodyMetrix™ System offers the same professional-grade ultrasound technology used by elite athletes and trainers. Proven and trusted ultrasound technology that can accurately measure tissue structure and body composition. Track fat and muscle thickness to monitor and evaluate the efficacy of diet and exercise. Monitor compliance.
