Set The Bar...Measure Your Progress
The only way to really improve your fitness is to know where you start. Knowing your physiological parameters is essential for quality training and improvement. At the start of every training program CCNS athletes undergo testing in order to determine their strengths and weaknesses.
Complete Fitness Analysis
A Complete Fitness Analysis includes a full battery of testing to determine your FTP, Lactate Threshold, Anaerobic Threshold, Aerobic Threshold, VO2 Max, Fat Oxidation Rates, Gross Efficiency, Fractional Use of VO2 Max at Threshold, Resting Metabolic Rate, Hematocrit, and Body Composition.
Whether you are years into using a power meter or just starting out to nail your first 5K, CCNS can help. We love seeing athletes gain confidence from knowing what is truly important to get faster.
VO2 testing is an excellent way to determine current fitness levels and physical potential. When used in combination with a proper training program, the data collected from your testing session has incredible value in helping an athlete achieve their peak physical condition.
Aerobic Assessment ( Lactate Threshold / FTP Testing )
CCNS provides aerobic assessments and testing using hospital and university-grade physiological testing facilities to endurance athletes in various disciplines.
Whether you are a cyclist, a runner, or a rower, knowing how intense your training needs to be to gain the maximum return is crucial. Your unique response to our Olympic training center testing protocol through gas analysis and direct blood lactate sampling helps create detailed training recommendations and zones. This test will determine your FTP, Lactate Threshold, Anaerobic Threshold, Aerobic Threshold, VO2 Max, Fat Oxidation Rates, and Gross Efficiency.
Resting Metabolic Rate Testing
Knowing your Resting Metabolic Rate and corresponding caloric needs is crucial to effectively and efficiently dial in your body composition, enhance recovery, and have more energy in general! CCNS uses advanced calorimetry to pinpoint your exact caloric needs to make sure you go down the right path towards dialing your nutrition.
Body Composition Analysis
In the quest for more speed, and endurance, the athlete often defaults to "lighter is better." With a Body Composition Analysis, CCNS coaches will help you determine your body composition and ideal weight for performance AND healthy living. In addition, we will help you feel confident about your standards for body weight as we establish weight goals and nutrition programs.
For those that see success in the smallest details, CCNS is capable of providing Hematocrit Testing, Glycolytic Hemoglobin Testing, Albumin Testing, and Creatinine Monitoring. Learning the characteristics and composition of your blood supply provides valuable context to your unique strengths and weaknesses. Blood analysis is one of the best and most scientific ways to improve your training regimen to fit your body's specific needs.
