Field-based fitness and performance assessment

As with laboratory based assessment, field-based assessment is used to monitor changes in fitness over time, identify physical strengths and weaknesses and help in the process of designing individual training programmes.

Field-based assessment means we'll travel to perform the assessment at your training venue. Field assessments have an added benefit that they are often more sports specific, especially for games sports such as football, basketball, netball and cricket.

Field tests can range from vertical jump test and sprint tests, using photo electric cells, to the multistage shuttle run test to predict aerobic fitness – as well as other sport specific tests of repeated sprint ability, speed, agility and power. Our physiologists have worked with a wide variety of professional and semi-professional squads.
