Performance Diagnostics

Performance test on the stationary bike or treadmill: It isn't only professional and amateur athletes who need to know their endurance limits and other parameters in order to achieve best possible training results. It is also important for heart, cancer and diabetes patients as well as sporting newcomers to train in an optimal zone. The first step to customized training is a lactate step test.
