Scientific Assessments

We are able to provide a wide range of scientific exercise & sport science assessments

designed to provide you with a comprehensive analysis of your current physical condition


Physiology

Lactate Profile Assessment: £95

This test measures your blood lactate response to an exercise test using finger tip blood sampling. This can be done on your bike attached to a computerised turbo trainer or on a treadmill. These data can be used to calculate your heart rate and power based training zones and allows you to carefully monitor your fitness and performance changes.

 

VO2max Assessment: £145

This test measures your breath by breath oxygen consumption using the very latest technology. This can be done on your bike attached to a computerised turbo trainer or on a treadmill. This provides the gold standard measure of aerobic fitness which can be used to calculate your heart rate and power based training zones and scientifically monitor your exercise capacity, fitness and performance changes.

 

VO2max & Lactate Profile Assessment: £195

This test not only measures your blood lactate response to exercise but also measures your breath by breath oxygen consumption using the very latest technology. This can be done on your bike attached to a computerised turbo trainer or on a treadmill. This provides the gold standard measure of aerobic fitness, your exercise economy, calorie expenditure and carbohydrate and fat usage during exercise in addition to determining your heart rate and power based training zones. This is the ultimate service to determine your exercise physiology and allows you to carefully monitor your exercise capacity, fitness and performance changes.

 

Body Composition Assessment: £45

This assessment determines your current body composition by measuring the amount of fat and lean muscle mass you have. This allows you to accurately monitor changes in your body composition.

 

Haemoglobin Analysis: £25

Haemoglobin is the oxygen carrying component of your blood.  A normal concentration is essential for the optimum delivery of oxygen to active muscle tissue.  A low concentration of haemoglobin (anaemia) is often associated with feelings of fatigue, tiredness and under-performance in exercise and sports competition. A high-value is often seen in high level endurance athletes.  This test involves a simple finger tip blood sample under resting conditions.

 

Nutrition

Nutritional Assessment: £75

Following completion of a 7-day food and physical activity diary we will analyse the information and identify any deficiencies in your current diet in relation to your level of physical activity, exercise training and sports competition. During your consultation we will provide specific nutritional advice to improve your fitness and performance in your specific sport.

 

Performance

Field-based performance assessments: £250/half day
These assessments are ideal for clubs, squads and teams, where large numbers of people need to be assessed. The assessment will be tailored to your sport and can include: body composition, flexibility, power, speed, agility, endurance, speed/endurance.

 

Movement Control & Injury Management

Musculoskeletal Screening: £75

In association with our on site physiotherapy partners, Ocean Physio & Rehab, we are able to offer clients a musculoskeletal screening assessment.  This assessment involves completing a series of low-intensity movements which tell us how well your body moves, which of your muscles are under or over-active and if you have any muscle imbalances which may increase your chance of injury and limit performance in your chosen physical activity or competitive sport.

 

Bike Fitting: £200

Working with one of key partners, The Bike Shed, we are able to offer our clients the Specialized Body Geometry Fit.  Body Geometry Fit is a bicycle fit system consisting of trained fit technicians, specialist fitting tools and a unique fit assessment process.  The combination of this system enables you to ride faster, longer and in greater comfort.  The bike fit process takes approximately 3 hours to complete.

 

All our assessments include a feedback session and written report
