What is a performance assessment?
Every athlete has different needs for optimizing their performance. Performance improvement can be related to fitness, strength, speed, balance, agility, etc., or a combination of these abilities.
Conducted in our state-of-the-art physiology lab at the Bell Sensplex, your performance assessment provides the measurable variables that will drive the foundation of your training regimen and how your improvement is evaluated.
What does PEAK Centre fitness assessment involve?
Our physiology lab at Peak allows us to conduct hundreds of different assessments 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 we conduct include:
Elite athlete training
Are you an elite athlete looking for the edge on your competition? Our cutting edge sport science lab can assist you with your needs.
Budding young athletes
We have specifically tailored assessments for every sport, designed to help young athletes develop including movement screens and LTAD testing.
High power sports training
Information that will help you recover quicker between bursts of efforts for high power sports such as hockey, football, tennis, soccer etc.
Have you hit a plateau and wondering why your fitness or sporting performance is not improving? No matter your sport or activity, our lab assessments will help you determine what adjustments are required to get you over the hump.
Do I need to take the performance assessment?
Yes. Every Peak training program starts with an assessment. We have an extremely friendly and encouraging staff, highly trained with lots of experience to guide you through the assessment.
What will I learn about my physiological make-up?
Here are a few examples of information you will get out of your physical assessment:
- 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 allowing training at your maximum potential for extended efforts of 30 minutes to 2 hours.
- Intensity allowing you to develop physiological aptitude with the objective to participate in competition at a high-level.
- Assessment of your current state of general fitness.
