Athlete Testing

I offer a variety of fitness and laboratory based tests which are extremely useful tools for athletes. 

Learn more about your body, and how you can optimise your training, nutrition and hydration to improve your performance.

All test costs include my support and feedback to help you train right, fuel right and perform right. 

Details of all available tests and analysis below can be found below. My coached athletes receive these tests at a discounted rate. Find out more on my coaching page.


Precision Hydration Sweat Testing
£90 Per Test / Discount for group bookings


Many athletes fail to pay much attention to how much sodium is in their sweat. This can be a big mistake as a sodium deficiency (caused by too much water/not enough sodium) can cause cramp, poor performance and hyponatremia which can be fatal in extreme cases.

The amount of sweat/sodium lost can vary up to 15 times between seemingly similar individuals. Everyone loses a different amount of sodium in their sweat, from as little as 200mg per litre of sweat, to as much as 2000mg per litre. This is largely genetically determined.

This means that a 'one size fits all', off the shelf approach doesn't work when it comes to hydration. In partnership with Precision Hydration, I offer in house sweat testing and a mixture of PH products that meet your individual needs. 

During the testing process, I will test your sweat to find out how much sodium you lose and provide you with a strategy and advice sheet.

This test is free for premium or elite coached athletes.
