Vmps offers a range of different performance assessment services that can be used to help structure your training and evaluate your progress toward specific performance goals. Depending on your individual needs, performance assessment can be based on heart rate or power metrics. All cycling performance assessment is done on Vmps’ Computrainers, which set the standard for accurate and repeatable data.
Heart Rate/Threshold Testing
By completing a ramp test on a Computrainer, Vmps coaches can help you estimate your threshold based on your heart rate profile. This enables you to establish specific training zones, which can be used to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of your training. Training by heart rate (in association with perceived exertion) is a very cost effective method of monitoring your training during individual sessions, as well as over the course of a season. Results from a heart rate/threshold test obtained from a Computrainer session can be extrapolated to other activities.
Next threshold testing scheduled for Friday, April 19, 2013 at 6:30 PM. Space is limited to eight people. Reservation is required.

Vmps also can offer several different types of power-based assessments, matching protocols that best meet your individual needs and goals. For athletes who train with power on the bike, Vmps can help you determine your critical power zones and recommend structured training programs based on your power data so that you can best realize your potential. For athletes who are looking for a more quantitative method of tracking their training progress over time, Vmps offers a simple Computrainer testing session that will provide you with data that can be used for comparative purposes as your season progresses.
