  • Athletic Performance - Understanding Performance Capacity and Motor Skills Testing


Motor skills such as balance,agility, speed, power and strength are important components of sports performance and injury prevention. Tests are specifically designed to measure these skills specifically for each type of sport/exercise. 


Y- Balance - evaluates the vestibular and non-vestibular balance. It also assesses your functional mobility and asymmetries between your right and left limbs which can lead to future injuries.

Hexagon - measures agility, coordination and dynamic balance. It is important for quick footwork and rapid changes in direction.

Pro agility 5-10-5 - evaluates the capacity of rapid changes of direction at 180 degrees turnability at high speed. Agility and change in direction are determining factors for many sports and can be trained by increasing joint stability and explosive capacity. 

Lateral bounce - evaluates lower limb power capacity in a lateral direction. This movement targets quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes power and knee and ankle stability.

Medicine ball lateral throw - measures trunk and core strength and rotational power. It is important for strong  rotational movement and to keep the trunk stable while performing powerful moments with the lower body.

20 m Sprint - evaluates peak velocity and acceleration capacity. Quicker take-off and acceleration is important for short distance competitions and good for making strategic plays for team sports. 

Repetition maximum (RM) - The back squat and bench press repetition maximum tests are considered the 'gold standard' for assessing the strength capacity of lower and upper limbs in a non-laboratory setting. Strength impacts performance in different ways. A stronger muscle-tendon unit can improve movement technique, power, and rate of force development.


Comprehensive report including: acceleration, peak speed, change in direction and agility times, balance scores and asymmetries between left and right limbs. Values are compared to reference values. Includes Fit3D Scan and Analysis including body composition and posture analysis.
