Comprehensive Physiological Testing for Cycling, Running, and Triathlon

Training is hard work – why not make sure you’re getting the most benefit possible? Performance testing can provide you with the accurate data you need to target your workouts for maximum effectiveness. We offer metabolic, sub-max, and VO2 max testing on our state-of-the-art ParvoMedics’ TrueOne 2400 Metabolic Analyzer. This is the same machinery used at the National Institute of Health, U.S. Olympic Training Centers, and the exercise physiology labs of many top universities. The cost is $200 and includes testing, analysis of results, documented training zones, and recommendations for advancement.

A performance test will provide you with the following data:

  • Heart rate and power training zones for recovery, endurance, tempo, lactate threshold, and anaerobic threshold.
  • Functional Threshold Power (FTP) and optimal fat-burning wattage.
  • Lung capacity and maximal oxygen uptake.
  • Correlation between heart rate zones and critical metabolic processes based on Respiratory Exchange Rate.

In simple terms, these physiological quantities allow us to evaluate clients’ initial fitness and mark their progress over time. Although it is known infamously as the “torture test,” everyone can find satisfaction in the hard evidence that the assessment provides. We all know there is nothing better than seeing hard work pay off!
