Are you performing at your peak?

SportsTest are offering and RCUK readers a special 10% discount on any tests booked in June and promotional prices on Science in Sport nutritional products, heart rate monitors, Garmin GPS systems and SportsTest Kit.

The racing season is now fully upon us, but
Sportstest are offering a wide range of testing packages to suit the needs of all athletes and clubs:

  • Fitness testing – to highlight your strengths and weaknesses, and focus your training with a personalised training programme
  • Heart rate zones – to remove the guesswork, and improve your performance more effectively
  • Assessment of body composition – to target the correct intakes for your training needs, and help you achieve your ideal competition weight
  • Advice – to optimise your performance on the big day, on ideal preparation, fluid intakes, and tapering

Testing would cost you £150 per discipline i.e. running or cycling £270 for both – and this fee would cover a 2-2.5 or 5 hour appointment with Dr Garry Palmer where you will receive a full physiological assessment, including assessment of your peak power output, VO2 max, power to weight ratio, maximum heart rate, endurance capacity (sub-maximal efficiency) and threshold determination. During the appointment you will have every opportunity to discuss your individual goals and concerns with Dr Palmer.

So why not invest some money in yourself and make 2006 your best year ever.
