Performance & Fitness Assessments

VO2max & Lactate Threshold Test

These tests allow assessment of maximal exercise capability at maximal and submaximal levels. The parameters analysed have been shown to be directly responsible for endurance performance; the information collected would allow assessment of your current fitness level and can be used to inform analysis of training data and prescribe exercise accurately. You will be provided with comprehensive report from your test within 72 hours. You may also want to discuss training programming and monitoring with our team.


The intensity which you optimally burn fat has been shown to be highly individual. So if you are looking to lose weight through exercise this test which will include analysis of expired gases during exercise will allow us to identify your optimal fat burning intensity as well as your aerobic fitness level.

Strength & Power Assessments

These assessments innovatively combine force and velocity data from our force plates and high speed cameras to accurately calculate your power output. This means we can identify optimum loads specific for your strength and conditioning plan, ensuring progression. Whether you’re an amateur athlete looking for some structured exercise plans, or an elite performer looking to fine tune your physical performance, HPL’s state of the art facilities can provide a bespoke platform for you. The HPL can also offer team-based S&C packages should you want to bring a team of athletes in.
