    Default Medical/Fitness Testing

    Does anyone know of a clinic or lab in the DR that does the following tests:

    DEXA Scan (Dual XRay)
    Bodyfat/Composition
    VO2 Max

    These are for setting a baseline before doing a fitness/diet regime, usually for athletes or people with health issues.

    A quick test for body fat is to go for a swim. If you sink when you exhale, you're body fat is fine. If you still float, you could lose some fat.

    You can roughly calculate VO2 Max on a stationary bike.
