Body Composition Analysis and Resting Metabolic Rate

Are you too heavy? Are you too thin? How much weight can you lose and still maintain your optimal power? CCNS can help you determine you body composition and appropriate race weight.  CCNS will help you feel confident about your weight standards and establish perfect weight loss goals and programs. 

CCNS will determine your exact metabolic and caloric needs. Determining your resting metabolic rate and caloric needs is crucial to safely and effectively lose weight, gain weight, enhance recovery, and have more energy! CCNS will help you determine your exact caloric needs using advanced calorimetry. 

Lactate Threshold
The test  is conducted by a USAC certified coach.   CCNS finds your fitness levels through direct blood lactate sampling. The tests will allow the coach to determine your Zones and Thresholds at Wattage, Heartrate and Perceived Exertion.

VO2 Max
An excellent way to determine your current fitness level and physical potential. When used in conjunction with a proper training program, VO2 Max testing has incredible value in helping an athlete achieve his or her peak physical condition.

Professional Bike Fit
Bike fit is one of the most important factors when it comes to speed, efficiency and comfort on a bike.
Dartfish motion analysis software uses video imagery of your position and dynamics on the bike to determine your optimal riding position in real-time sports-specific motion. CCNS doesn't stop there... CCNS is one of the only fitting services in the country with sEMG (electromyography) analysis. CCNS can analyze the way every muscle is being recruited to optimize bio-mechanical efficiency and power.

CCNS also utilizes laser guided measurements and Computrainer Spinscan analysis, to give you the most complete and in-depth bikefit possible.

Wind Tunnel Benchmark Test
Determine your coefficient of drag (CDA) for benchmarking purposes.  A quick and easy way to measure the aerodynamic performance of your current setup. 

Full Wind Tunnel Test
  • Photos with precise and comprehensive data from all positions and equipment tested. Clearly showing you which position is most advantageous and efficient for your needs.

  • Turbulence Visualization and Analysis.

  • Biomechanical analysis, not only for your most aerodynamic position, but also the most powerful and comfortable position based on of your individual physiological needs.

  • Demo-access to an extensive collection of the best aero-equipment on the market.

The tests are optional; you are welcome to attend the seminar without being tested but you must register for the seminar if you wish to have access to any of the tests or services.
