Testing can be used as a coaching tool to monitor training and athlete development. Testing services makes it possible to provide individual athletes and teams with physical performance testing and analysis, as well as technique filming on the treadmill. In addition, we can test basic skills sport by sport with the appropriate coaches.

The fitness testing station serves athletes in all levels, from beginners to elite athletes. Santasport Lapland Sports College’s long history with the elite sports guarantees a high level of knowledge, which helps non-professionals as well. Fitness testing not only monitors development, but also helps in designing the training regimen to fit the level of the athlete. This way you don’t have to start exercising with a blood taste in your mouth, and the progress is faster too.

Services also include Firstbeat wellbeing analysis, which measures daily stress and recovery. The measurement is easy and unobtrusive tracking for a few days. It is suitable for anyone interested in their own well-being, regardless of the amount they move.
