As input for your Personal Training plan you will do an exercise test. Depending on your A-race-, you either do a bike test or a run test. The bike test is done on a Tacx Neo, on your own bike. We use a treadmill for the run test. The exercise test takes thirty to forty minutes. You start at a low intensity. After your warm-up, the intensity is increased every 6 minutes. In the bike test the intensity is increased with 25 Watt per 6 minutes. The the run test the speed is increased with 1km/h every 6 minutes. During the test we measure your heart rate, wattage (cycling) and speed (running). We also determine your lactate value after each step.
The test data is translated into a test report. This will be sent to you digitally afterwards. The report shows your training zones – in heart rates as well as in watts (cycling) and speeds (walking). You will also find your metabolic profile in the report. This is the ratio between your aerobic and anaerobic energy output at different levels of exercise.
The report concludes with our interpretation of the test data and our advice for building up your training to your personal goal. Together with the data from the intake, we now have all the ingredients to design your Personal Training plan.
Duration and location
The intake and the test take two hours. The location is the test room of 3in1Sports. That is located in De Alchemist, Europalaan 2 in Utrecht. You can park for free, and Utrecht Central Station is a 10-minute walk away.
Personal Training plan accessible via TrainingPeaks
After the intake and exercise test, we write your training schedule of at least 12 weeks. Your schedule is tailor-made, taking into account your capacity and training options and building up to your personal goal.
3in1Sports uses TrainingPeaks as a platform for creating your workouts. You can see your workouts in the app and upload them to your sports watch or cycling computer as structured workouts. After your training, the data will be uploaded to TrainingPeaks.
