At the beginning and then at various stages during a training plan a Performance test can be used to dertermine how well you have responded to your training and what adaptations you have made.  Knowing your current fitness level is vital in evaluating how effective your training has been and for the planning and optimising of future training sessions.


Yourcyclecoach offers several tests that can be used to evaluate your current level of fitness.


All tests are done using a Wahoo Kickr Power Trainer using Perfpro Performance software.

The wahoo kickr allows you to ride your own bike during the test in the position you are accustom to.
