PNOE Active

Our breath analysis test and personalized programming can be the game-changer you’ve been searching for to surpass your personal bests.

Breath analysis, also known as metabolic or VO2 max testing has long been recognized as a fundamental assessment for measuring athletic performance and creating improvement plans. However, this valuable knowledge was only accessible in sophisticated athletic settings. That is until PNOĒ made the full potential of breath analysis available to athletes of all levels.

We want to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of how PNOĒ can revolutionize your performance:

Identify performance limitations.

Your ability to perform physical activities hinges on the efficient transport of oxygen to your muscles and the release of energy from stored nutrients. You can focus your nutrition and training where it matters most by pinpointing the weak link in this chain—whether it’s your heart, lungs, or cells. Breath analysis is the only scientifically proven assessment to reveal this crucial information.

Track progress with accurate markers.

Assessing performance improvements without relying solely on race results or personal perceptions is key to success. Breath analysis offers reliable metrics such as VO2 max, anaerobic threshold, recovery capacity, fat max point, and movement economy to help you gauge your progress and make data-driven decisions.

Get a personalized plan to break your records.

PNOĒ’s team of experts leverages insights from analyzing over 100,000 metabolic profiles to design a comprehensive plan tailored to your unique biology. By detecting the factors hindering your performance and identifying personalized nutrition, and training, we can help you shatter your records.

Everyone who knows the power of breath analysis believes that biology, not psychology, defines success. Through breath analysis, also known as VO2max or metabolic testing, we can unlock the secrets to optimizing your nutrition and training for your specific metabolism.

Let’s dive into what a breath analysis test can reveal and how it can revolutionize your athletic journey:

  • VO2 max: It’s the maximum amount of oxygen your body can absorb and utilize during exercise. VO2 max serves as the strongest predictor of your athletic performance and improvement. By understanding your VO2 max, you’ll have a clear measure of your aerobic capacity and endurance potential. This knowledge allows you to tailor your training programs to improve oxygen uptake, enhancing performance and endurance.
  • Movement Economy: Movement economy refers to how efficiently your body moves. It encompasses running or cycling form, biomechanics, and muscle activation patterns. Improving your movement economy reduces energy consumption and minimizes fatigue accumulation during training and competition. This translates to more efficient movement, enhanced performance, and the ability to sustain higher intensities for longer durations.
  • Training Zones: Your body responds differently to different training intensities. Training zones are specific heart rates or power ranges where your body optimally adapts and improves. Training within these zones allows you to target specific energy systems, build endurance, improve speed, and maximize your overall performance. Understanding your training zones empowers you to train smarter, optimize your workouts, and achieve your desired goals more effectively.
  • Fuel Usage: Understanding how your body utilizes fats and carbohydrates during exercise is essential for optimizing nutrition. Different training intensities and sports require varying amounts of fuel sources. By knowing your fuel usage patterns, you can strategically plan your nutrition, ensuring you have the right macronutrients to support your energy needs. This knowledge allows you to maximize performance, prevent fatigue, and optimize recovery.
  • Optimal Bike Fitting: Cycling efficiency is crucial for endurance athletes. Optimal bike fitting refers to finding the ideal position that allows your body to perform efficiently, consuming the least energy while maximizing fat utilization. Ensuring proper bike fit can enhance your power output, minimize energy waste, and reduce the risk of discomfort or injuries. This ultimately leads to improved performance and a more enjoyable cycling experience.

 

Training zones reflect the different metabolic states your body experiences as you transition between exercise intensities. In simpler terms, they are specific heart rate ranges corresponding to different exercise intensities, each triggering individual metabolic responses within your body.

  • Zone 1: This is typically used for warm-up or active recovery. It helps prepare your body for more intense exercise or aids in recovery after challenging workouts.
  • Zone 2: Training in this zone focuses on developing mitochondrial function and improving your fat-burning efficiency. Engaging in Zone 2 workouts enhances your body’s ability to utilize fats as a fuel source, optimizing endurance and energy utilization.
  • Zone 3: Zone 3 training targets strengthening your lung muscles and improving heart function. It helps enhance cardiovascular fitness, allowing you to sustain moderate-intensity exercise for longer durations
  • Zone 4: This zone aims to boost your VO2 max and enhance your ability to sustain high-intensity exercise. Training in Zone 4 improves your body’s anaerobic capacity and VO2max through improvements in buffering capacity.
  • Zone 5: Training in Zone 5 is all about maximizing your VO2 max and peak power output. Focusing on high-intensity intervals improves your body’s ability to perform at maximum speed or power, unlocking your true potential.

 

It’s important to note that training zones are highly individualized and depend on your unique metabolism. Generic equations or wearable devices can be off by up to 25%, making personalized training zones essential for accurate and effective training.

Your training zones should serve as the compass guiding every training session and race day. By tailoring your workouts to target specific zones, you address your body’s specific needs and weaknesses, fostering growth and improvement.
