Demystifying Performance Testing

Performance testing SOUNDS cool, but what is it really? What should you as an athlete expect to get out of it? Do you have to be at a certain "level" to benefit from it?

We'll answer all of these questions and more at Demystifying Performance Testing with Playtri Head Coach Morgan Hoffman.

This presentation will include an exploration of the technology, science and equipment behind:

Metabolic testing
Blood lactate testing
Sweat testing
Swim, bike & run analysis

...as well as PRACTICAL applications for testing data from all of the above. Sadly, many tests on the market today do little more than provide data for the sake of data - learn what to look for as an athlete so that you can make smart investments in your health and performance.
