Athletic Testing in Vancouver
High-Performance Athletic testing is essential to an athlete’s journey at Saltus Performance. Regular monitoring of physical fitness and sport-specific performance is crucial in increasing the likelihood of success in competition.
Why is athletic testing important?
It allows a coach to build the athlete profile and better understand where an athlete’s strengths and weaknesses lie, what to focus on in the short and long-term training plans and where they stand compared to key performance indicators. It also provides feedback on how an athlete has progressed throughout training.
High-Performance Athletic Testing starts with the advancements in technology, such as timing gates & force platforms. Using these technologies and scientific studies, researchers have been able to develop multiple athletic profiles. These profiles include characteristics such as necessary strength, power, acceleration, change of direction, and energy demands.
Our coaches can review baseline measurements and assess where an athlete’s strengths & weaknesses are. Then, after your high-performance athletic testing, you can have a custom-designed training program that will drive success on your field or court.
Our comprehensive performance testing protocols assess key performance indicators of sport, an athlete’s ability to accelerate, change direction, maximal power and force-producing capabilities.
