Full Physiological Test follow-up – $200

Lactate Profile – $150

* A credit card is required for registration, but payment is not due until day of service.

We work with athletes from all sports including cycling, running, triathlon, mountaineering, skiing, Crossfit, hiking, team sports, obstacle racers, and general fitness enthusiasts.

Full Physiology Assessment:
Before the actual testing begins we will use Musclesound™ glycogen scanning technology to gain valuable insight on how fueled, recovered, and healthy the athlete’s muscles are.

The Full Physiological Assessment pairs Lactate Profiling with O2 & CO2 gas exchange analysis to give the athlete the most comprehensive picture of their physiology.  With the data we collect we can customize training zones in relation to Power, Pace, Heart Rate and Perceived Exertion.  We can also suggest ideal race paces, power outputs or heart rate targets.

You will also learn how much carbohydrate and fat your body burns (in grams per minute and calories per hour). Gain insight into the cellular mechanisms behind your performance and discover how to boost metabolic adaptations.

Following your assessment, you will meet with your Exercise Physiologist to review the data, discuss application of the data to your individual goals, and discuss any pertinent questions. You will receive a complete report that covers all aspects of your evaluation, plus individualized training intensities and fueling recommendations for peak performance.

Swim Physiology and Stroke Analysis
Take advantage of our Endless Pool in our state of the art flume room where we will assess your physiological response to various swim intensities to improve your performance and recovery while providing multi-angle underwater video analysis to make stroke mechanic recommendations as they pertain to your individual physiological response to swimming.  You will receive a complete report detailing the results of your test along with individualized pace, heart rate, and stroke rate based training zones to get more out of each training session and optimize your swim performance.

Swim Physiology – Lactate Profile
We will assess your physiological response to various swim intensities to improve your performance and recovery. You will receive a complete report detailing the results of your test along with individualized pace, heart rate, and stroke rate based training zones to get more out of each training session and optimize your swim performance.

Muscle Fuel Assessment powered by Musclesound
Included in all Physiological Assessments, we can assess muscle glycogen storage (i.e., your fuel tank) through non-invasive ultrasound and provide individualized guidelines for optimizing fuel storage and performance.

Sweat Check – $40 add-on
Dial in your hydration with our Sweat Check. During your physiology assessment we will measure sweat rate and sweat sodium losses to provide guidelines for improving hydration status.
