    Lawrence, it seems the link to HIT Lab, inc no longer functions. In fact, I’m not even sure from Googling it that Tim even has an official website for HIT Lab any more. Can you confirm this? If he does have a website, can you please put the corrected link here or send it to me?

      Hi Rich. I just tested the link above and it works fine. Tim doesn’t have a website for HIT LAB, just a Facebook page:

        So then, how do you know what services they provide? It doesn’t list them. On our site, in which we specialize in HIT and Weight Loss, we also offer Metabolic Testing here:

        I was hoping to learn more about how he runs his testing services and fees.

            Lawrence, I already spoke to him by phone. Seems we have much in common regarding business philosophy and HIT methodology. We might even do a few collaborative projects together!
