Paddling Ergometer Testing
Paddling ergometer testing is being offered to teams and individuals interested in testing and monitoring their paddling specific fitness. The paddling ergometer that we use is the latest from Kayak Pro. Experienced and novice paddlers alike have been impressed by the similarities between real on-water paddling and the new paddling ergometer. Paddlers will be provided with an individual time for each paddler over a set distance (500m, 1000m, or 2000m). In addition, the software that accompanies the machine will provide individual data on average stroke rate, average meters per stroke, and average speed (m/s).
This testing will provide coaches with valuable feedback on paddling specific fitness for each athlete on their team. It will also allow for paddlers and coaches to measure individual improvements over a set period of time.
The testing can take place at the Mississauga Canoe Club or at any training site available to teams in the GTA. Testing for teams outside of the GTA can also be arranged.
In addition to the above mentioned data, teams (and paddlers signing up for 'individual' testing) will also be provided with a dvd copy of their testing session.
If interested, please contact Doug Tutty at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can provide you with cost options and demo session for coaches and team captains.
