  • Determine your body's Lactate Production Threshold
  • Maximal Effort Test

  • Program Specific Heart Rate workouts
  • Pin Prick test for real-time reading

what is lactate threshold Testing?

We offer a pin prick test to directly read lactate levels during a maximal effort running test
Lactate threshold is defined as the intensity of exercise at which lactate begins to accumulate in the blood at a faster rate than it can be removed. This is problematic because as a result, unbuffered acid is added to the blood and hinders performance
You can tailor training programs to increase your lactate threshold and aerobic capacity by training just below this threshold

compression boots

At Custom Performance we utilize Normatec and Air Relax Compression Boots to offer athletes a speedy recovery time. Compression air is released to massage the targeted area and help promote the release of fluid build up and inflammation. Unlike other compression treatments that use "squeezing", our compression boots utilize a pulsing which is more effective.
