Lactate Testing: $100

We offer comprehensive on-site lactate testing and analysis in our Methow Valley training base. Using a straightforward blood-lactate test we can determine an athlete’s Aerobic and Anaerobic thresholds (AeT and AnT, respectively), which are the two crucial ventilation points we use in prescribing training intensities. Cheaper than a full metabolic test, lactate testing has the advantage of being mobile which allows us the ability the perform the test anywhere from a running trail, a road or track, or the side of a mountain. Whatever your sport, we’ve got you covered.

This simple testing protocol involves a warmup followed by a series of progressive intervals and samplings. Taking a blood lactate sample is very easy and pain-free, using the same sterile lancets used for blood sugar monitoring with diabetics. The sample is then fed into a handheld meter that quickly delivers a result. We use a data set of 8-10 point-readings to derive a lactate curve and analyze it for your two thresholds.

Testing includes administering the test, all the supplies, and follow-up analysis. You’ll go home with a summary of your results and training recommendations based on your unique profile.

Training Plans

Do you need guidance to reach a goal race or adventure? Our plans will help you build up your fitness and give you confidence to get there.

If you have the accountability to get workouts done and know when to adjust things based on how your body feels, a training plan can be a great way to try some new workouts, and progress in different ways. Remember that training plans by definition can't be completely personalized, so modify based on your history and how your body responds. Questions?
