  • Flight time
  • Form
  • Ground contact time (broken down into initial contact, foot flat, propulsive phase)
  • Side to side asymmetries (left vs. right leg)
  • Stride angle (related to IT Band syndrome risk)
  • Stride length

This information assists us in developing a custom plan for you as well as injury prevention. 

With this 1 hr service, you receive:

  • Biomechanical analysis and cueing to improve form
  • Videos of "before" and "after" sent to your email
  • Assessment of strength and range of motion
  • A specific plan to correct these imbalances

custom training data for you

lactate threshold data

  • Determine your body's Lactate Production Threshold
  • Maximal Effort Test
  • Client Receives tailored report within a day
  • 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
