Exercise Physiology

If you want to know how fit you are, how fast you are and what needs to change to make your performance, aerobic fitness, or lactate threshold better, we can help.

We can conduct physiological tests, such as VO2max testing (aerobic capacity) and lactate threshold testing (how hard can you go and maintain a high intensity) to help you discover exactly how your body works and how to adjust your training to achieve your goals and optimal results sooner.

Based on your test results we can assess your current performance status, make informed suggestions of how to improve aspects of your training and provide a means to monitor your progression with recurrent testing. 

Physiological testing analyses how the body works. From a performance point of view this is specific to your particular goal/sport and relates to the delivery of oxygen and ability to handle lactate. This allows you to make adaptations at a cellular level which result in improved performance.

  • Lactate threshold (how hard can you go and maintain a high intensity)
  • Wingate test  


We all know that we need to eat well to stay healthy, but when it comes to fueling performance there is more involved. Sports nutrition is about delivering the right fuel at the right time to produce optimal performance. This is not restricted to competition alone, but is also applied to daily training to drive adaptations at a cellular level.
