During performance diagnostics, training and metabolism under stress are analysed. In addition, conclusions can be drawn about the function of the heart and lungs.
Spiroergometry is the most accurate way to collect performance data and is clearly superior to lactate measurement, for example. Breathing is measured and analysed in an exercise test. Values such as VO2max, CO2 output, respiratory equivalents, etc., contribute to an accurate picture of performance. With this form of performance diagnostics, we not only determine the actual condition, but also why it is the way it is. Where do you have development potential? In which area have you trained too much or too little so far?
The most important data
First of all, there is the VO2Max. It indicates how much oxygen you can use in the muscles for energy production. Simply put: how big is your engine?
We determine it precisely, using a mixed chamber system, which is superior to breath analysis.
The breathing thresholds VT1 and VT2
Next to VO2Max, often THE topic in performance diagnostics or in discussions among athletes. Again simplified: Where are my performance limits for certain periods of time. Here, too, the value is determined with pinpoint accuracy. Here, too, the determination is made with pinpoint accuracy. The result can be output in heart rate, watts or pace.
Metabolism and performance diagnostics
All measured data are in a way also a result of the metabolism. But what is burned and when? Sugar and fat are the main energy sources. There is also protein, which is only relevant in sprinting. So it is important for us to know when sugar replaces fat.This is important in endurance sports, but also when it comes to losing or building up weight, for example.
The advantage of performance diagnostics with me
In the Schaffhausen area, I am the only provider who can offer mobile diagnostics at a high level. The data collected is evaluated according to scientific standards. My experience of more than 15 years and work at the highest level help just as much as the quality of the equipment used.
The setting of the tests can be chosen by you – at home, in the gym or over lunch in the office.

FAQ Performance diagnostics
Q: How well do I have to be trained for the test?
A: Not at all. You take the test to be able to train properly.
Q: What should I eat before the test?
A: Something light, 2 hours before. So not necessarily a huge pasta party. A light breakfast, or even some fruit. Drinking is no problem, but only sugar-free, coffee only if you are used to it.
Q: Can I still train the day before?
A: Before you do the test, you should be regenerated. That’s why I don’t recommend training beforehand. Endurance or strength training the day before will affect the test result.
