Triathlon

Are you training for a triathlon, have a big event coming up, or want to get the most out of your training?

We can help you optimise training and enhance performance, through physiology testing and physiotherapy.

Physiology Assessments

A physiology or fitness assessment allows us to find out how your body performs as it does, as well as where your strengths lie, and what aspects of your physiology might be limiting your progress.

Getting your training intensities correct and working on the right things at the right stage of the year means you aren’t wasting precious training time.

The risks of injury, illness and overtraining can also be reduced as a consequence.

Physiology assessments will help you maximise your run and bike training in the time that you have available to train.

Who is it for?

Anyone can access our service. Test protocols are adapted to suit the individual, whether you are a beginner or experienced athlete.

How much does it cost?

A standard test (VO2max and submax) is £150 plus VAT.  If you book a run and a bike test, or if two people come in together for testing, you would get a 10% discount, and if you book a second visit within 12 months of the first you would get a 10% discount.  Bespoke test protocols and packages for groups can be delivered so please contact us for exact pricing.

Ultra-Endurance

If you are training for an Ironman, information about your fuel utilisation (how much fats/carbs you use) can be key.

Our carbohydrate stores are limited, so maximising your ability to use fats as a fuel is vital for success in long endurance events.  Understanding your fuel metabolism will allow you to tailor your training and your nutrition appropriately.

Our standard running and cycling physiology test protocols are adapted slightly, and the tests are carried out in the morning, after your standard race day breakfast, to give us as accurate information as possible about the amount of fats and carbs you use. 

Your feedback report will include a section explaining these results, advising on training adaptations to influence fuel use if necessary, and guidance on how much carbohydrate you need to be taking on during a race.  We will also look at both bike and run data together, to see how your fuel utilisation on the bike might be influencing performance in the run.

 

How much does it cost?

The extended physiology tests (VO2max and submax including fuel utilisation) is £175 plus VAT.  If two people come in together for testing or you book to do both bike and run test, you would get a 10% discount, and if you book a second visit within 12 months of the first you would get a 10% discount.  Bespoke test protocols and packages for groups can be delivered so please contact us for exact pricing.
