Virtual Metabolic Testing


A metabolic approach to training efficiency

The performance you are looking for is composed of a variety of components and metrics, but if you only focus on FTP, power output or heart rate zones, you’ll miss accuracy and efficiency. Whether you are a:

  • Triathlete trying to maximize your pacing strategy
  • A gravel grinder looking to optimize your fueling requirements
  • A beginner trying to figure out how to train a little smarter

you can benefit by doing a metabolic assessment.

The Bottom Line:

  • You'll find out how much fat and sugar you are burning at every power output.
  • You'll get key metrics like VLaMax & VO2Max to help you create the most effective individual training plan for your next event.
  • Insights into your metabolic efficiency to properly fuel your body for maximum performance.
  • Access to a test that's not just for the pros. It's for anyone that wants to train more efficiently.
  • A power meter and bike computer will be required to perform the assessment.
  • Once you purchase a virtual assessment, you will receive an email with the assessment procedures.

With this assessment, you will know your:

  • Anaerobic threshold
  • VlaMax
  • VO2Max
  • Which energy system is your rate limiter
  • And much more!
