Physiology is the science of the normal function of living systems. It studies the processes and mechanisms that allow us to survive, grow, and develop optimally. At the lab we use a system utilizing biomarkers, physiological measures and movement data based algorithms to build a picture of the individual person. Our assessment platform, System Based Training™, helps us objectively measure internal power, and determine how efficiently your energy systems are functioning , or if they are potentially over worked or stressed. Applying the information gained from these measures allows us to give truly individualized advice to help prescribe appropriate training parameters and loads to athletes, coaches and everyday people to not only improve performance , but also maximize physical health and wellbeing.
HEALTH, WELL-BEING & WEIGHT-LOSS
Health, Well-being and Weight-loss.
Why use it?
It is a way to “look inside your body” to determine how well you are functioning. This information can be used to help you achieve your well being or weight loss goals. To ensure our bodies are able to function effectively and efficiently they need to have the appropriate energy sources. When your body has the appropriate energy source for different activities it is able to maintain a better balance between energy in and energy out, and doesn’t need to store excess energy as fat. This is important to ensure you are able to achieve your health and weight loss goals.
Who can use it?
This type of testing has been used extensively in the athletic population to help athletes achieve their potential. But, the great thing about it is the same techniques can be used to help anyone, no matter what their athletic background, or complete lack of it
It shouldn’t only be top athletes that benefit from scientific improvements in training methods to make their life easier. This training technique can make anyone’s training more specific and ultimately more effective, not matter what your goals.
We are really excited to be able to offer this type of individualised training technique to the wider population;
- The busy executive who wants to maximise their time spent training, by ensuring they are targeting the right areas
- The parent who only has limited time, and wants to make the most of their training
- The person who is sick of trying fad diets and putting in the hard work at training without seeing weight loss goals that they were hoping for
What are the benefits ?
- Individualised training approach
- Identification of reasons for poor previous results from training
- Aid weight loss
- Improve health and well-being
- Reduce risk of overtraining
- Takes the guesswork out of training, to ensure you are providing your body the stimulus it needs to improve
Level 1 (testing, prescription of training parameters and periodization); on completion of testing you will receive a detailed report outlining your current physiological status. This will provide information regarding current strengths and areas for improvement, it will also identify athletes at risk of over training. From this information, recommendations will be given regarding training parameters to guide you to achieving your goals. You will also have access to our blog and our exclusive Facebook group that will have useful tips and a monthly live Q+A session.
Level 2 (testing, prescription of training parameters and individualized training plan); you will receive all of the great benefits as level one. However, you will also be given daily training prescription. This will give you specific guidance regarding your daily workouts, and ensure that you are effectively targeting the correct energy systems to meet your goals. With this information you can be confident in the knowledge you are going to get the most out of your training. You will also get a progress update phone call to ensure that you are on the right lines, and have no urgent issues.
