Training Camps in Southern Utah —
From KORR Medical Technologies, maker of our VO2 Max Equipment:
“A VO2 Max Test is a measurement that reflects a person’s ability to perform sustained exercise. It is generally considered the best indicator of cardiovascular fitness
and aerobic endurance. The actual measurement is ‘milliliters of oxygen used in one minute per kilogram of body weight.’ It is suitable for a wide range of individuals, from the sedentary to elite athletes.
“A complete VO2 Fitness test can give trainers and clients the tools to set realistic goals and assess improvement… Many people are inefficient exercisers, with no understanding of what specific heart rate, intensity or duration would best help them reach their specific goals such as fat burning, endurance training, or cardio conditioning. An initial VO2 Max test can clarify the specific target heart rates that will enable each individual to reach their fitness goals more effectively, with less fatigue and fewer injuries. Periodic retesting provides motivating feedback as the fitness program progresses.
“The test also determines the number of calories burned during every level of exercise…
“VO2 Max is a valuable tool for serious athletes to assess performance and evaluate training regimens. Even though extensive training can sometimes cause an athlete to reach a plateau in VO2 Max, he can still use his VO2 Max test results to make further improvements in performance. This is accomplished as he pushes to increase anaerobic threshold (AT) and maintain that threshold for longer periods of time. This enhances both endurance and cardiovascular performance.”
Proper biomechanics apply to all sports, not just bike fit.
Many of our athletes are trail and road running this time of year for run-specific fitness, cyclocross or triathlon conditioning, as well as cross-training for downhill and cross-country skiing, road cycling and mountain biking, etc.
Whatever your sport(s) of preference, the Pose Method® can prove indispensable to help reduce the risk of injury, and to make you a more comfortable and efficient human machine.

Be on the lookout for write-ups we’ll be posting regarding the importance of functional as well as fitness training.
We will be in NorCal early December to ride with one of our sponsored teams during a winter training camp. Then we will be available in Sacramento and the East Bay (Walnut Creek/Danville) to conduct VO2 & lactate threshold testing at discounted rates to anyone interested.
Look forward to riding and working with some of our California riders!
If we better welcomed & encouraged beginner athletes, we’d have more people to enjoy our sports with, as well as test ourselves against.
