Our Applied Sport Science team combines expertise in biomechanics, physiology and coaching. Based on the initial consultation and needs analysis, we offer a multitude of health and fitness assessments customized to meet your specific objectives.
We offer weekend warriors access to data that will help them train “like the pros”, and support for individuals of all levels looking to make lifestyle changes and prevent injuries.
CUSTOMIZED ASSESSMENTS INCLUDE:
- Progressive endurance tests on a bicycle ergometer or treadmill (VO2 Max)
- Cardiac stress test: monitoring your heart rate and rhythm during exercise to determine your risk for cardiovascular disease and identify potential abnormal heart rhythms.
- Pulmonary function: important for assessing conditions such as asthma, exercise-induced asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
- Body composition and resting metabolic rate (RMR): If you’re trying to lose weight, put on muscle mass, or just improve your overall health, our anthropometric assessments can help you set realistic goals and monitor your progress.
THE FORTIUS DIFFERENCE
Our assessment tools both within the lab and beyond allow us to more accurately prescribe and customize your training, provide diagnostics to evaluate potential causes of injury and guide rehabilitation, and evaluate performance and monitor progress.
We have the capability to conduct a multitude of different assessments, a number of which are unique to Fortius.
A key point of difference is that following the assessment we provide interpretation and insight to translate the data into information that is meaningful. During the debrief we also take the next step to relate the findings to your specific objectives and provide practical recommendations that you can apply to your training and treatment, thereby providing the tools to ultimately achieve the desired outcome.
