Fitness Testing

Your time is  precious, so make sure that the time you spend in the saddle is as  efficient as possible. You can't train efficiently without first knowing  where you stand fitness-wise.  We can help you by identifying your Lactate Threshold (LT).  LT is the max steady-state effort that you can maintain without a  significant increase in blood lactate levels.  LT is the best predictor  of potential race performance.  Once we identify your LT, we can build a  custom training plan to help you improve.  LT should be tested  regularly to determine a training plan's effectiveness.  In The Spin  Lab, we use two fitness tests to identify LT: A Lactate Threshold Test  and a Power Ramp Test.  Schedulean appointment, and start training efficiently today.

Lactate Threshold Test

The best predictor for potential race performance

$200

Duration:  1 Hour

An LT test is the most accurate fitness test for pin-pointing your lactate threshold. After warm-up, the test measures and records cadence, power output, heart rate, and increases in blood lactate levels over a period of timed incremental increases in resistance.


Power Ramp Test

Simple - Affordable - Accurate

$100

Duration:  1 Hour

A Power Ramp Test is a simple method that accurately identifies LT. No finger pricks, no blood, but similar results. After warm-up, the test measures and records cadence, power output, and heart rate over a period of timed incremental increases in resistance.
