Hundreds of aspiring triathletes were treated to elite level athlete testing at the Triathlon Plus Show as Surrey Sports Park launched the Surrey Human Performance Institute for Triathlon.
The Surrey Human Performance Institute, which was the Official Training Partner of the Triathlon Plus Show at London’s Excel Arena, offered triathlon fans the chance to be guided through a 2 hour testing programme. Nearly 200 visitors took part in the testing programme which included body composition testing, in addition to swimming, cycling and running tests.
The Surrey Human Performance Institute, located at Surrey Sports Park, offers health and performance assessments to a variety of clients. The testing facilities provide clients with the opportunity to learn about their health and optimise their training. Surrey Human Performance Institute will also be holding a weekend triathlon training camp for all levels, offering expertise, testing and advice on how to train smarter over the weekend of 5th and 6th April at Surrey Sports Park.
Mark Garfoot, Performance Sport Manager at Surrey Sports Park, said;
"We were very pleased to offer Surrey Human Performance Institute’s testing services to a range of athletes at The Triathlon Plus Show. We look at all the pieces of the puzzle that make up the modern-day triathlete and the athletes that took part in our testing programmes were provided with data which will help them train and compete at a higher level and hopefully allow them to enjoy triathlon even more."
Joe Wainwright, Surrey Human Performance Institute Manager, added;
"One of the biggest myths is that these tests are designed for elite athletes, in which they are, but they can also be applied to any athlete. Our services focus on four key performance assessments. These include body composition, cycling and sub maximal lactate test, running sub maximal test and a swimming lactate test as well. The information that we developed from these test will allow those that took part to adjust their training programmes in order to be more competitive in the future.”
