We care about your performance. We know you do too. So we’ve launched new performance testing services.

Running analysis 

For beginning endurance athletes or experienced racers, having a better understating of efficiency and economy of movement is one of the keys to injury prevention and improved performance.

Let our frame by frame video gait analysis help you correct any stride patterns that may be leading to injury or discomfort and help you find your most efficient stride:

Coaching Association of Canada

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. 

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.
  • Functional Threshold Power Test using your own bike on our H3 Direct Drive Trainer.

Lactate testing

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.

Sandy Wilson is the consummate professional. My running injury was diagnosed efficiently, the treatment was highly effective and my rehabilitation program easy to follow. What more could one ask for?

Repair my body past what I thought was possible

I have been going to see Sandy for a few years now for various sporting injuries. She is great at what she does, and I highly recommend her and I send all my friends to see her. She is very strong and has worked out knots/scars in my muscles to repair my body past what I thought was possible. I have tried other practitioners in the past and have always felt like they ignore what I say and just do what they feel is best without telling me why they are doing it- Sandy takes the time to listen and

One of the most medically rewarding journeys I’ve been through

  I’ve been to plenty of physiotherapists across Victoria, and none of them have lived up to the standard that Connor Willis delivers! I was referred from Babylon Telus to Dr. Thibodeau (who is also incredibly amazing), who suggested I go to physio. From Dr. Thibodeau’s suggestion, I decided to try their in house physiotherapists, since the location was near enough to be convenient. And I’m incredibly glad I did. If you’re looking for a physiotherapist who is knowledgeable, patient, and good at what they do – Connor’s got your back! (Literally, if you have a back injury, which I

If you have a sports injury look no further

Fantastic care from Christy Mader, if you have a sports injury look no further, this is someone who really knows what she is doing!

Past the brook is a large expanse of ocean with a large tanker ship in the center in the distance. On the other side of the water there is a snow covered mountain range. The sky is dark and grey.

Helped me recover from many sports injuries

Dr. Veronica Hewstan at Arbutus Physiotherapy is a very attentive and caring Chiropractor. She has successfully helped me recover from many sports injuries using both the Active Release Technique to eliminate the soft tissue pain in my shoulder and the Graston Technique to reduce scar tissue in my knee over time. Thanks to Dr. Hewstan my body feels great!

The first person I contact to assess and deliver treatment

Whenever I have an injury in need of diagnosis, Sandy Wilson is the first person I contact to assess and deliver treatment. Her advice on returning to training and racing comes from the fact that she is an athlete herself. Her treatment plans always get me back out there running and being active faster than I would have ever thought possible in the initial stages.
