Lactate Profile

The lactate profile is a test that uses lactate to establish your thresholds. The lactate test involves a step test where every 3-5 minutes the speed or watts will be increased and a small blood sample will be taken. This helps us better identify your aerobic and anaerobic thresholds to establish your training zones.
