Contact Sportstest West Midlands
All my clients have different sporting abilities and goals. I believe strongly in the individual and would much rather have a telephone conversation or a face to face informal chat than email. Drop us a line and I'll call you back for an informal chat about what we can do to help you achieve your goal.
Sports Test Locations
Unit 34, Pillaton Hall Farm, Pillaton, Penkridge, Staffordshire, ST19 5RZ
Whilst we are in the heart of the countryside, our main fitness testing facility is located conveniently in the centre of country just a few minutes from the motorway networks of M6, M6 Toll, and M54, and around 15 mins from the M5, making it very easy to get to if you are travelling by road.
If travelling by train, there is good services to Stafford, Wolverhampton, Lichfield and Rugeley. All are about 20-30 mins by taxi to the laboratory.
If you want to stay locally, we are minutes from the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which provides excellent cycling (road and off-road), running, walking and outdoor activities. You can stay onsite at the camping/caravanning site at Pillaton Hall Farm, or there are a range of good hotels locally, if you wished to stay overnight.

When first returning to the UK from his PhD studies in Cape Town, Dr Palmer spent 5 years lecturing Sports Science at Kingston University During time he forged some close associations with the staff and athletes at Sigma Sport. 2019 sees a return to Kingston with Dr Palmer using Sigma Sports as a West London base for testing cyclists.
Sigma Sports have now grown to one of the most esteemed bike shops in the UK. As well as carrying an incredibly wide range of cycling brands, they also have extensive offerings for triathletes and runners, and are able to offer a bike fitting service.
Whilst Dr Palmer is only able to offer the Sportstest services from Sigma on a Friday, he is able to offer both early and evening appointments. Please contact us for further details and availability.
National or international!?
We are also able to offer the same high level of testing at a venue to suit you. Our apparatus is fully portable (with the exception of our treadmills), and so we are able to visit you either nationally, or internationally!
Whether you are a club, or a group of friends – a minimum of 3 people is required, with a maximum of 5 per day. For cycle fitness testing all we need is a suitable venue (well ventilated, with good power availability, suitable work surface etc.) and we can come to you. For running and triathlon testing, there will need to be unrestricted access to an appropriate treadmill.
We are able to offer our mobile testing both during the week, or at the weekend. For more detailed information on this service, please contact us.
