Speed testing, repeated sprint tests, aerobic based field testing as well as strength testing can all be completed.

  • Speed testing with Witty speed cells
  • Repeated sprint capacity tests to include fatigue index
  • Aerobic field based tests:
    • Yo-Yo IRTL1
    • Bronco Test
    • Bleep Test.
  • Height, Body Weight & BMI
  • Sum of skinfolds (via Harpenden Skinfold Calipers)
  • Strength Tests relative to body weight ratio and repetition maximum (RM) testing to ensure effective load prescription and progression.

In addition, Perform Fitness can ensure that your training is more efficient via accurate heart rate training zone prescription.

S&C programmes

Having a baseline measure for all of the components of fitness creates a fitness profile for each athlete and can track trends and physical gaps in any training programme.

These gaps can then be filled for optimum performance.

Personal Training

Strength assessments can be conducted to help with load prescription and also track progression.

The results can be related to body weight to create a strength to body weight ratio which is a relative score to help compare individuals and also track improvement.

There is a large correlation between strength and speed so the results obtained may indicate further conditioning requirements within other components of fitness.

Heart Rate Monitoring

Session heart rates can be downloaded and discussed with each client or athlete to ensure correct training zones and therefore an optimum physical outcome.

Maximal heart rates should be used from maximal fitness testing to create accurate heart rate zones to base training upon.
