PERFORMANCE TESTING:

  Conducted in the “lab” , our performance testing is set up to establish a cyclists or runners “Functional Threshold” power and/or heart rate. “Functional Threshold” is the AVG HR or power, in WATTS, that an athlete can sustain for approximately a 50min to 1 hour time trial.

The Cycling Test:

Our “test” is a steady state progression or “ramp test” performed on a medical grade calibrated Compu-Trainer and has been shown to accurately predict an athlete’s “functional threshold”. Through the test results and discussion you will walk away with a more precise knowledge of how to train more appropriately with HR and / or power zones or levels. Athletes should plan for a MINIMUM of 90 minutes to complete the test and consultation.

The Running Test Process:

The “test” is a steady state progression or “ramp test” performed on a treadmill and has been shown to accurately predict an athlete’s “functional threshold”. Through the test results and discussion you will walk away with a more precise knowledge of how to train more appropriately with HR zones or levels. Athletes should plan for a MINIMUM of 90 minutes to complete the test and consultation.

Blood Lactate Testing:

As a supplement to our cycling or running performance tests, we can adapt them and take blood lactate samplings for even more precise and useful results. Please inquire regarding rates.

Athletes With Coaches:

If you are an athlete who currently works with a coach we would be happy to speak to your coach regarding the testing and even send test results to your personal coach.

Sweat Rate Testing:

Conducted in our “lab”, this running or cycling test is in-valuable for athletes who choose to understand their fluid and hydration needs for specific endurance events. Because these events are different, each test is different and varied based on the distance and intensity the athlete’s key race. Please contact Dave with any questions regarding this process.
