  • Guidelines for heart rate based training
  • Estimation of your ability to perform over certain distances (10km, Half marathon, Cooper test)
  • Comparison between your previous test (assuming the previous test was done at our office too)

Some comments from our customers

We asked our customers to share their thoughts about the test on Facebook:

I used to train way too hard, like so many others. I had the mentality that "it is not proper training unless you really suffer". After taking the test I realized that it is not necessary to suffer every day. In fact, you should be training in a lower heart rate level most days to get the best training benefit.
I really feel like my fitness has improved a lot ever since I started using right heart rate zones in my training! My heart rates were always too high and I used to run way too fast.
I had my first lactate test one month ago. I would definitely recommend it! It is way easier to train now that I know my heart rate zones for ideal training.
