Bike VO2 max testing - £100

The cycling VO2 max test gives you a range of data to help improve your training and ensure your training is most optimal use of your limited training time.

The test involves a max ramp test where we start a very light resistance and gradually increase the intensity until you reach volitional fatigue. While doing the test you will be wearing a mask which is connected to a device that measures Oxygen consumption (O2) and Carbon Dioxide consumption (CO2) as the percentage of each of these gases change we get an accurate data to identify strengths and limiters to help you guide your training.

This session includes:

  • Identifying of Aerobic and Anaerobic Threshold
  • Maximum Oxygen uptake (VO2 max)
  • Detailed report with analysis of the results including training zones and training recommendations

Add on options:

  1. Add Fat and Carbohydrate and running economy testing +£80

Run VO2 max testing - £100

The running VO2 max test gives you a range of data to help improve your training and ensure your training is most optimal use of your limited training time.

The test involves a max ramp test where we start with a walk and gradually increase the velocity until you reach volitional fatigue. While doing the test you will be wearing a mask which is connected to a device that measures Oxygen consumption (O2) and Carbon Dioxide consumption (CO2) as the percentage of each of these gases change we get an accurate data to identify strengths and limiters to help you guide your training.

This session includes:

  • Identifying of Aerobic and Anaerobic Threshold
  • Maximum Oxygen uptake (VO2 max)
  • Detailed report with analysis of the results
  • Detailed report with analysis of the results including training zones and training recommendations

Add on options:

  1. Add Running economy testing +£50
  2. Add Fat and Carbohydrate and running economy testing +£80
  3. Add biomechanical assessment +£80

Fat vs Carbohydrate combustion testing - £100

Identifying carbohydrate and fat combustion rates can be very beneficial when training for endurance events as this can help identify the appropriate pace or power to train at to ensure muscle glycogen depletion doesn't impact your performance. Knowing the exact point where carbohydrate consumption peaks will allow you to calculate fuelling strategy.

This session includes:

  • Identifying of Carbohydrate and fat combustion rates
  • Fat Max identification
  • Carb max identification
  • Detailed report with analysis of the results

Add on options:

  1. Add VO2 max testing (Bike or Run) +£50
  2. Add Running economy testing +£50
  3. Add VO2 max testing (run only) and running economy testing +£80
  4. Add biomechanical assessment +80

Running Economy Testing

Identifying the maximum amount of oxygen that can be used (VO2 max) is beneficial to understand as it sets the upper ceiling of Aerobic capacity, however if you are an endurance runner, the amount of oxygen you use at sub maximal intensities becomes critical to improving performance. Running Economy is a measurement of your ability to turn oxygen into mechanical work. The less oxygen required to run at each respective pace the more efficient a runner will be. Combining the VO2 max test with running economy testing allows us to get a clear picture of the runners current fitness and economy and identify where improvements can be make to become fitter and/or more economical.

This session includes:

  • Identifying of running economy at various velocities
  • Fat Max identification
  • Carb max identification
  • Detailed report with analysis of the results

Add on options:

  1. Add VO2 max testing Run +£50
  2. Add VO2 max testing (run only) and running economy testing +£80
  3. Add biomechanical assessment +£80
