VO2max OR VO2max With LACTATE
Whether you’re looking to decrease your race time, improve your power on hills, or increase the effectiveness of your training program, the VO2Max and VO2Max Lactate Threshold analyses provides a unique profile of your cardiovascular fitness.
Using state-of-the-art metabolic equipment, our applied exercise physiologist takes you through a progressive exercise test on a bike or treadmill. Using this data, they provide actionable recommendations for you to improve your training and help you reach your fitness goals.
BODY COMPOSITION ANALYSIS
Unlike a traditional scale, body composition testing uses skinfold and girth measurements to assess what proportion of the body is fat mass compared to fat-free mass (i.e., lean mass, bone and muscle). By tracking these measurements over time, and not just your overall weight, we can determine if changes in your weight are due to a change in fat mass or fat-free mass.
This information can help your registered dietitian or strength and conditioning coach build a dietary or training plan that is tailored toward your body composition.
3D GAIT ANALYSIS
Looking to hit a new PB? Struggling with a chronic running injury? Our 3DRun analysis has the ability to capture small imperfections in your running technique, like stride width, cadence, knee/foot position and step length. We also analyze your running mechanics (how your hip, knee and ankle work together).
Small positive changes to running technique and mechanics can add up to a significant difference over a longer race distance. Based on your results, our recommendations may include gait retraining, mobility work, strength work or shoe changes that can all lead to increased performance, injury prevention and injury management.
JUMP & HOP TESTING
“I don’t jump in my sport, so jump testing isn’t relevant to me.” — Wrong.
Jump testing at Fortius is used to assess a number of factors, including strength and power. It also assesses asymmetries in loading between left and right legs which can help to identify potential areas of increased injury risk, or monitor progress during injury rehabilitation.
Jump testing is measured using a dual force plate system and kinetic impulses.
