Test Results

We regularly test and re-test our athletes throughout their training programs. Positive test results ensure the athlete’s custom training plan is “working.” If results do not show improvement, it allows us time to ask, why, and make the necessary adjustments PRIOR to race day.

Test results provide us with valuable data for creating future workouts in order to maximize fitness gains for the athlete.  Ultimately the data will help to establish their race day strategy. Needless to say, the end goal is to put our athletes in optimal position to have the best race possible.

We are proud of our athletes and the hard work and dedication they put toward training. Below are a some of the test results we have seen recently.
