Elite Testing Available to Anyone
We know how seriously recreational, age group, and amateur athletes take their performances. 

We have recognised this and made state-of-the-art sport science testing available for anyone looking to get the best out of themselves.
Understand Your Physiology
Every race has a starting line, in testing terms, this is your current level of performance. Understanding what makes up your physiology allows you to clearly see where you're at compared to your performance goals.
Find Your Training Zones
We don't use a generic formula, or percentage of an estimated FTP. 

These are REAL numbers based on your physiology and testing data to ensure you can lock in on the correct Heart Rate, Pace or Power in your training.
Maximise Your Training Time
We not only analyse the data, but we identify your physiological strengths & weaknesses to provide accurate training recommendations to get the most out of your training. Helping you to cut out the junk and make the most of every session.
What's Included With The Testing?
VO2 Max Numbers
We provide you with the number EVERY endurance athlete wants to know. What is your VO2max?

VO2max is the maximal amount of oxygen taken in, transported and utilised by the body per minute. A key component of the endurance athlete formula for success. Endurance athletes are aerobic machines, your VO2max indicates the size of the aerobic engine.

Functional Threshold
Functional Threshold, Anaerobic Threshold, FTP; All of these mean the same. It is the theoretical intensity you could maintain for ~45-60mins.

Arguably the most important predictor of performance is your Functional Threshold in relation to your VO2max. You'll find out exactly what Heart Rate and Pace/Power to hold at threshold.

Individualised Training Zones

We don't believe in generic equations or estimating percentages for Training Zones. We carefully analyse your testing data to obtain accurate training zones based on Heart Rate and Pace or Power. 

Not only do we identify your individualised training zones, we provide an explanation of what these mean and the types of training sessions to complete to maximise the use of the numbers..
Detailed Summary Report
You may think this is a lot of information to take in. Correct! What we do is break it down simply for you and provide a detailed summary report clearly outlining all of the important pieces of information including your VO2max, Functional Threshold and Training zones.

In addition, we provide specific training recommendations in your report to help you make the most of the data and waste no time in implementing the best training possible to improve your physiology.
All of the Data
Love to look at the data? As well as a detailed summary of your data, we also send out the raw data where you can click through 10+ graphs including how well your muscles are extracting oxygen, the amount of air you breathe in per minute, how heart rate changes with exercise intensity and loads more!
How We Eliminate the Guesswork...
We measure every bit of data we could possibly need to give you the best possible training advice tailored specifically to you.

We directly measure how much air you're breathing in, your breathing rate, your heart rate, how much oxygen your muscles are extracting & using, how much oxygen your heart is ejecting out every heart beat, your power/pace, your lactate, your energy expenditure... Everything! We use science to COMPLETELY  take the guesswork out of your training!

Eliza boosted VO2 max by 17%, ran 43 seconds/km quicker at functional threshold, reduced her heart rate by an average of 13 beats every work load, could extract 12% more oxygen into her muscles per minute, and improved the efficiency of her heart by 33% in just 4 weeks of training. 
Josh boosted VO2 max by 16% at a heart rate 3 BPM lower, reduced his heart rate by an average of 8 beats every work load, significantly improved his ability to tolerate and clear lactic acid, and improved the efficiency of his heart by 17.5% in 4 months of training (and, most importantly, reduced his 10km time from 39 minutes to 35 minutes). 
Simon changed his functional threshold power from 270 watts at 163 heart rate to 300 watts at 172 heart rate in just 3.5 months. He used to produce 10.7mmol/L of blood lactate at 170 HR, but now produces only 3.9mmol/L at 172 HR.

Frequently Asked Questions
What do I complete the VO2 test on?
A treadmill, bike (ours or yours), or rowing ergometer.
Who is this test best for?
Anyone who completes a sport which involves more than 2 minutes of continuous movement. Common sports include triathlon, cycling, running, swimming and rowing, but we also get people from crossfit, mountaineering, obstacle course & adventure racers and even ARMY & Police recruits.
I'm just a weekend warrior/recreational athlete. Can I justify the cost?
Absolutely! In a recent survey we sent out to our client list of 513 people, 94% indicated that they were "weekend warriors/recreational athletes" or "compete in amateur age group competition". Only 5% were at the "top of their age group/pushing elite" and 1% were "elite" status.

The beauty of this is that it's you guys and girls who actually have the most to gain from this test. The elites are chasing 1%er improvements, whereas you can chase 10, 15 or 20% improvements by changing the way you approach your training and using science and data to direct this.
I'm interested, but I'm not at peak fitness yet.
Doesn't matter. Identifying your zones will get you to peak fitness faster! We get athletes coming off 12 month breaks, to those in the middle of a program, to those who have peaked. The information and data you receive is applicable to all stages of a training program. In fact, you'll reduce your likelihood of injury because you will be able to get fitter by training less so you are less likely to suffer an overuse injury. You'll be able to train less because your training will be more focused, goal oriented, and targeting specific physiological weaknesses (AKA NO JUNK!)
What use is having the data if I don't have the knowledge to use it?
We spend 20-30 minutes after your test interpreting your data in jargon-free language so even the newest athlete can understand it. We walk you through your training zones, identify your strengths and weaknesses, and then give you specific training advice on exactly what you need to do to improve your performance. We also email you educational video links and blogs we've written created specifically to give you the knowledge to use your data. We offer an affordable consultations for extra education and advice which you can add-on during the online booking process.

We also offer a weekly coaching service if you don't have a coach to help guide you. We use your data from your VO2 max test to ensure that every minute of training counts and that every session has a specific goal which gradually builds towards your performance goal. We schedule this around your work:life commitments, training history, injury history, and goals.
Do I need to come back for another test at a later date?
It is recommended that you re-test every 3-4 months to measure improvements and readjust your training zones, this is why we recommend the 4 test package to keep track of your progress.
If I buy the 4 Test Package, how long do I have to use it?
The 4 Test package has a 3-year expiry, meaning you can use the tests when you need them to best aid your training and preparation to race. 
I want to come in, but Mulgrave is too far away.
We offer portable services for group testing of 5 or more people. If you can round up a group of people who are interested, we will travel to your location to undertake testing at no extra charge. Contact us below!
