WHAT IS A FITNESS ASSESSMENT?
A fitness assessment is a method of measuring your body’s specific response to exercise, it is a snapshot of your current fitness level.
Many types of assessments exist, however, not all of them provide the individual information necessary for proper exercise training. Predictive equations, estimation charts and perceived exertion levels provide no direct information regarding your current individual fitness level and also fail to track fitness improvements over time. Each analysis is specific only to you and how your body responds to exercise.
What does it involve?
Our physiology lab at Peak allows us to conduct hundreds of different assessment types in order to accurately measure your body’s specific response to exercise. We are able to customize the assessment depending upon the purpose.
Just a few examples of customized assessments

- How to burn the most body fat during the effort, using your own optimal fat burning zone.
- How to train in your own optimal endurance zone, allowing you to crank up your endurance for efforts lasting more than 2 hours
- Intensity that allows you to training at your maximum potential for extended efforts of 30 minutes to 2 hours.
