• What is my percentage of body fat?

Energy Metabolism and Body Composition Testing

Since 2002, the HNRU has been conducting research into body composition and energy metabolism.

We now offer these services to the general public at our state of the art facility located at the University of Alberta.

Are you interested in knowing how many calories you burn in a day to help with your fitness or weight loss goals?
Have your resting metabolic rate tested by professionals. Choose from the whole body calorimetry unit or the metabolic cart.

Do you want to know your percentage of body fat to kick start a new fitness program or gauge how far you have come in your journey?
Have your body composition measured by highly trained staff with the BodPod.

Covid-19 Update

These services are on hold for now. We are working hard to limit the risk of COVID-19 in our community and are only operating for research study visits at this time. In the meantime, if you wish to be contacted once our services re-open please get in touch: hnru@ualberta.ca or 780-492-2196.
