Our Mission

Fortius Sport & Health is an integrated athlete development centre strengthened through philanthropy and focused on optimizing human performance for life.

The Lab

The Fortius Lab is a purpose-built, state-of-the-art human ​​​performance lab open to athletes at all levels. 

While most human performance labs are located in university settings, the Fortius Lab is a purpose-built, state-of-the-art human ​​​performance lab integrated within the Fortius Institute. ​​​ ​​​Our vision is to make applied biomechanics and exercise physiology accessible to all athletes, of all ages and to all levels of competition.

Through the Fortius Lab, we offer tests/analyses that help athletes reach their goals whether that is to compete in the Olympics, run in an upcoming marathon or to walk your dog three times a week. Through collaboration with Fortius Institute Practitioners, our focus is to assist and support in injury management, prevention and to optimize performance through measurement to better understand those variables which cannot be seen or assessed, clinically. ​
