PERFORMANCE TESTING

Performance Testing is an integral part of training. When working with a coach or following a training plan, testing your performance levels at specified intervals is the key to success.

Periodic performance testing allows you to quantify your training progress by measuring a standard set of performance indicators that are normalized and repeatable. 

Lactate Threshold -LT- (AKA Anaerobic Threshold or Lactic Acid Threshold), Functional Threshold Power -FTP- and VO2MAX are the key performance parameters for athletes of all disciplines. Read here about the benefits of performance testing.

 

We offer performance testing for all cyclists. If you use a heart rate monitor, we determine your LT by HR. If you use a power meter and heart rate monitor we determine your FTP. VO2MAX is determined without needing to worry about your specific training tool.
