Submaximal fitness assessment (cycling, running, rowing, swimming)
For the regular trainer, this test allows us to determine your training zones by speed or power and heart rate. A useful tool for identifying your strengths and weaknesses, evaluating your progress through to identifying specific training zones. The full price reflects the inclusion of online gas analysis, blood analysis and heart rate analysis.
Maximal Fitness Test VO2 – Maximal Oxygen Uptake assessment (cycling, running, rowing)
During this test you will be asked to exercise until fatigue – a very intense experience reserved for the regular trainer. You will find out your VO2 max, as well as your maximal minute power (cycling) or top running speed. Heart rate response will also be assessed.
Integrated (Sub & Max Test) fitness assessment package
A combination of submaximal and maximal fitness tests, separated by a 15 minute break to give you a comprehensive evaluation of your fitness.
Body composition Assessment (restricted & full profiles)
Completed by a fully trained ISAK Anthropometrist who specializes in body composition, we measure your sum of skinfolds, muscle girths, height and mass. Your feedback will include an estimate of lean mass as well as distribution of your adipose or fat. Restricted Profile idea for ongoing monitoring – optimising performance or making weight, while the full profile focuses on growth & weight category.
Restricted profile: sum of skinfolds & fat distribution, selected muscle girths, height and weight (18 measurements)
Full Profile: sum of skinfold & fat distirbution, muscle mass, limb lengths & breadths, somatotype, growth patterns height & weight (44 measures).
Using a fingertip blood sample, this simple procedure measures your haematocrit – the concentration of red blood cells in your blood – and haemoglobin, the oxygen transport molecule within. This is used to monitor changes in plasma volume – for example as a result of endurance training or altitude exposure.
An isokinetic assessment allows us to accurately measure strength in a group of muscles. This is useful when looking at pre- and post operation scores, rehabilitation or in the case of a reoccurring injury. The assessment can take from between 45 -60min depending on the test protocol.
