Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Tests

Posted on 12th December 2018

At the start of December, we had the lovely people from Trailmed come to our offices to carry out Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Tests (CPET) on a number of runners. This is the “gold standard” health and performance test; a superbly detailed and accurate way to test your engine! The comprehensive physiological test tested heart, lungs and metabolism to find out exactly how fit the runners were and how they can train more effectively, and so improve more with goal directed training. The sessions were extremely well received by the runners and the feedback they received was really useful. These tests are for everyone who is interested, definitely not just for accomplished runners. They provide sound, science-based information and the team have lots of experience to allow them then offer you the best advice on how to make the most out of your training and see the biggest improvements. Trailmed will be back again next year, and, in the meantime, you can find out about them at
