PNOĒ Metabolic Analysis Certification Program

PNOĒ has developed the first certification program on metabolic analysis and biometric screening. It provides you with the fundamentals of exercise physiology and the knowledge you need to conduct resting metabolic rate and VO2max test. It also offers a deep dive into analyzing data from metabolic testing and biometric screening methods to identify limitations and build nutrition and workout plans to minimize or eliminate them.

Join thousands of health professionals who have elevated their practice by becoming experts in metabolic analysis and biometric screening.

Recognized by American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), and Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA).

Get continuing education credits for completing the PNOĒ Metabolic Analysis Certification Program. You will be granted 32 credits for the Foundations and Advanced Certification.

Empower Your Business with the PNOĒ Certification Program

Regardless of access to the PNOĒ Metabolic Analysis System™, our Certification Program is built to be valuable for all fitness professionals interested in expanding their knowledge of metabolic testing.

Expand Your Knowledge

Our program offers foundational education on three vital elements of human physiology: the cardiovascular, respiratory, and muscle metabolic systems. This training further explores how these systems interact and impact a body’s physical limits.

Grow Your Business

Broaden your business’ horizon by becoming an expert in a variety of metabolic/biometric screening services. Speak to your client’s exact needs, whether they range from weight loss to professional athletics, by providing invaluable biometric insight, they won’t be able to find anywhere else.

Provide Effective Programs

Design effective programs for any client with any goal. From targeted training regimes to customized nutrition programs, legitimize your business with the power of effective training based on accurate biometric data.

    The PNOĒ certification is above anything I’ve done so far (and I study Neurology of movement!). Detailed yet not boring, clear, direct and fun! Daniel is great at explaining things that otherwise would be complex.

What you will learn through
PNOĒ Metabolic Analysis Certification Program

Introduction to Exercise Physiology

Learn how the cardiovascular, respiratory, and metabolic systems operate and interact with each other and how they affect performance and health.

Metabolic testing & Biometric Screening

Learn how to complete effective resting metabolic rate (RMR) and VO2max testing and use their data to identify nutrition and training deficits. Then learn how to combine spirometry and VO2max testing to identify physiological limitations and identify personalized training zones and fueling strategies.

Build science-based programs

Learn how to develop comprehensive nutrition and exercise programs that tackle the limitations identified through biometric screening.

Advanced Concepts in Physiological Testing

Learn how to use advanced biometric screening methods, including Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS), to identify physiological limitations affecting multiple human systems. Learn how to prescribe respiratory training during regular training and through the use of specialized respiratory training devices.

Certification Levels

Our Metabolic Analysis Certification Program consists of five modules divided into three certification levels

Level 1

Foundations Certificate

With the Fundamentals Certification (Modules I-III), you will gain a comprehensive understanding of how the three major physiological systems - respiratory, cardiovascular, and muscle metabolism - interact and affect performance and health. We also cover best practices for conducting metabolic tests and analyzing their data to identify physiological limitations and personalized training zones. Lastly, you will learn how to use metabolic analysis results to build personalized and limitation-specific nutrition and training programs for clientele ranging from severely deconditioned individuals to professional athletes.

Level 2

PNOĒ Advanced Certificate

The Advanced Certification dives deeper into metabolic analysis and other forms of biometric screening by introducing testing with the Moxy Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) device. In this module, you will learn how to integrate data from several sources to identify physiological limitations affecting multiple systems of the human body. You will learn how to analyse advanced test cases (medical conditions and sport specific) and become proficient in developing advanced nutrition, exercise, and respiratory training that tackles them.

*Completion of Foundations Certification is mandatory.

Level 3

PNOĒ Expert Certificate

In this module, you will have the opportunity to apply all the theory in Modules I-IV in a practical on site course. During the four-day session, you will use testing and training devices to fast-track the process of turning the insights taught in modules I - IV into an integral part of your training and methodology.

*Courses are being planned now. Email Daniel at for further information
*Completion of the Foundations and Advanced Certification is mandatory
