Fitness Assessment 

The willingness to train is imperative in order to reach your goals. 

Knowing the most direct route to success and checking in to make sure that you are improving under your current training regime is essential.  

Let our lactate testing and functional threshold power testing give you the knowledge to set proper training and racing zones on both the bike and run:  

  • lactate testing on H3 Direct Drive Trainer or Treadmill via portable lactate testing machine. (Coming soon),
  • Functional Threshold Power Test using your own bike on our H3 Direct Drive Trainer.

Lactate Testing (coming soon)

Lactate threshold is commonly known as the exercise intensity or blood lactate concentration that one can only sustain for a specific period of time. Through the use of our state of the art Lactate Analyzer we can determine specific threshold levels (aerobic and anaerobic) by taking blood samples at specific points during exercise. Can be done using our treadmill for the run or on our direct drive trainer for the bike. 

FTP Test

FTP stands for Functional Threshold Power, which is commonly defined as the highest average power you can sustain for an hour, measured in watts. Through the use of your own bike on our direct drive trainer and using Trainer Road software we can determine what your individual zones are and how to effectively train with these numbers.
