Training with precision requires an understanding of your physiological response to exercise. This response is highly individual and is determined through standardized measurements of specific variables, such as heart rate and lactate, while exercising at progressively greater workloads. Physiological assessment is the foundation upon which all effective training strategies are based and progressively modified.
The Gears Performance Centre offers two levels of physiological assessment, Standard and Enhanced, that are differentiated by the depth to which we examine your physiological response to exercise.
Standard Assessment – $150
The Standard Assessment is commonly referred to as a Lactate Test. Lactate testing is designed to accurately determine individual training zones based on your blood lactate response to increasing workloads. This assessment will also provide an objective means by which to benchmark and monitor your fitness levels.
Enhanced Assessment – $350
The Enhanced Assessment takes a more thorough look “under the hood”. By incorporating oxygen and respiratory analysis, Dr. Gannon determines specific performance limiters that are holding you back from optimal fitness and performance improvements. We all have limited time to train, this assessment will give you laser-guided precision on where to spend your valuable training time, ensuring a maximum return on investment. This is a great opportunity to spend one-on-one time with Greg and explore how your body responds to exercise and determine what parts of your engine potentially need a tune-up. A one-hour follow up consultation with Dr. Gannon is included in the assessment fee.
