VO2Max Test by SportsPlus
For members by members part 3!
We have linked with SPORTSPLUS, the sports performance assessment expert. They offer us a club discount for the hardcore performance-oriented Team Sonic triathletes! The assessment will be resulted as your VO2Max or sub-max indication to reflect your level of physical fitness. The test could be done by treadmill or bike trainer, we also get the option to add Lactate Acid test and body composition analysis that would produce a result of your BMI, body fat ratio and distribution....etc....please refer to the attachment for detail.
Contact Dr. Dennis Whitby for appointment, and thank you Edwin Wong for the link up.
Sonic Time Trial
Stage 1 (4km run) was successfully held in Shek O in the foggy morning after the valentine day, we had 21 good souls joining the time trial, first cross the finish line: Ivan Yeung for the men, Stephanie Bina for the ladies. We had a very foggy ride after the run.
Ranking see Sonic web:
Stage 2 (10km bike) was planned on Bride Pool Road but it crashes with Cycling race so the new time trial venue need to be confirmed again mainly for safely measurement. More detail to come this week!!
