Testing Process

Want to know what you will be doing during the test? Well we can tell you and we can show you. Simply watch the video to the right...

  • Stage 1 - Getting to know you. We will chat about your previous sporting history to find out your goals, aims and target events.

  • Stage 2 - Body Composition - Height, weight and body fat analysis to help us target required nutrient intake (if required) and to help track changes over time

  • Stage 3 - Testing Stage - You will spend 35 minutes on your bike on our lab based ergometer, the first 15 minutes are a controlled warm up where we look at your fuel metabolism at an endurance and threshold effort. This is followed by a 5 minute break before starting your progressive max test.  

  • Stage 4 - We will spend a significant amount of time reviewing your results with you, providing you with your heart rate and power training zones, fitness strengths and weaknesses along with building a targeted overview training plan


"I like the style of coaching from Garry. It's a different, structured approach, he always get the peaks right." 


We achieve this through science based Sportstesting which allows us to determine your power and heart rate zones and ultimately get you training smarter NOT harder.
