Testing is conducted at our Fresno Location
Whether you're a weekend warrior or a professional athlete, sound training, based on scientific principles, is the only way to reach your potential and achieve your goals.
We use physiological testing to determine training parameters and to measure how each athlete is adapting to their customized training plan.
Depending upon the needs and goals of the client, Pinnacle Training Systems offers three different types of tests:
VO2 Max Testing
- Establish your current cardiovascular fitness level.
- Establish heart rate zones needed to set important training parameters.
- Determine your anaerobic threshold which provides valuable information upon which to build an individualized program.
- Monitor your body's adaptation to training.
- Ensure you are training at the correct intensity to prevent injuries.
- Special discounts are available to groups within a team or club. E-mail email@example.com for more details.
General VO2 Max Testing
$200 for 1st test, $150 for follow up testing
VO2 Max Testing for Coaching Clients
$125 for 1st test, $125 for follow up testing
Lactate Threshold Assessment
Determining your lactate threshold has scientifically been shown to be the most consistent predictor of performance in endurance events. The LTA allows us to precisely determine your training zones based on power (cycling), pace (running) or heart rate (cycling and running). This test also provides the athlete with optimal paces for racing. Power, heart rate and/or pace at threshold is also determined. Lactate at threshold and peak power can be used by the athlete to precisely monitor their training. Watts/kg of body weight at threshold is also determined as this is an important assessment of climbing ability. The entire test takes about 1 hour including warm-up, cool down and consultation. Follow-up testing on a regular basis provides the athlete feedback as to whether or not their training program is providing them with the physiological adaptations that is required for optimal performance.
Testing Prices: $150 1st test, $125 follow up
Maximum Aerobic Power Testing
The MAP test is an incremental test the examines the athlete's heart rate response to an increase in workload. Based on the results, we can predict your anaerobic threshold and can determine your heart rate and power training zones. After the test, a consultation is provided whereby the test results are explained and how to apply the information to your training. This is a cycling test that uses your own bicycle on a lab-calibrated CompuTrainer Pro 3D stationary ergometer. The entire test takes about 1.5 hours including warm-up, cool down and consultation. Follow-up testing on a regular basis provides the athlete feedback as to whether or not their training program is providing them with the physiological adaptations that is required for optimal performance.
