Exercise economy

Price: £150
Duration: 1.5 hours (approximately)

The efficiency by which athletes transfer raw metabolic power to mechanical power (velocity) is known as 'exercise economy'. In a group of otherwise similar athletes, economy makes the difference between a top, bad or indifferent athlete.

For example: the more efficient you are, the more power/velocity you can generate for the same oxygen (O2) cost. So, the less oxygen it requires to achieve the power output, the better.
