Annie (Elite Cyclocross Rider)

“I have had a few performance tests in the past, they have always been for other people to monitor my progress but never had I really understood the results myself. I think that was my main barrier to it, doing the test but not truly understanding the scientific outcome. However, running through the whole VO2 Max test with Craig meant that every element was explained. The actual test itself was over very quickly and concisely due to the high level of kit being used. There was something strangely satisfying about the whole thing, reaching your true VO2 max. The best part for me was the one to one run through of the results, and most of all how I could then go on to apply that to my current training. It consolidated areas that I knew I was ok with, and highlighted areas to go away and work on with my coach. All delivered in an easy to understand format.”

“I have done several ramp tests over the years and this is the best one I’ve done so far. Craig did an excellent job of explaining how the test would work and what to expect, he also gave me very good feedback and encouragement during the test. There was also a detailed explanation of my test results, body composition and blood values etc. I was left with a very clear understanding of my current fitness and what I needed to do in order to be a stronger cyclist in 2016. I would defiantly recommend Craig to anyone who wants to be a better athlete. After the test and consultation I was really motived to get on my bike and start working on the areas that he had identified as weaknesses”

Suzie (Elite Triathlete)

“Thank you Craig for the Vo2 max testing and blood analysis at the OTE performance centre. I have never experienced such a detailed psychological analysis before and this was fantastic. He clearly explained everything before, during and after wards in a scientific but accessible manner, which I really appreciated. The equipment really is top of the range, the bike so smooth to ride, shame the legs gave up when they ran out of oxygen! I will definitely be using the power data to aid my training over the winter and i look forward to retuning to check on my progress.”
