Dr Garry Palmer   Sportstest

Sportstests' Dr Garry Palmer provides the ultimate personalised coaching & sports testing for cyclists, triathletes and runners. Whether you're a beginner or an elite athlete, knowing your personalised training zones will help you improve faster and to a higher level.

Testing provides a wealth of information such as your Vo2 max, aerobic threshold, lactate threshold, aerobic capacity and much more. Knowing how hard to train and where your weaknesses lie will help you become a better athlete.


How do we differ from the thousands of other coaches available?

Most coaches will use text book learnt advice in order to coach their athletes. That's fine but if you want proven, real results with less training time then you need a different approach. At Sportstest, we take a scientific approach to coaching to ensure that you are progressing towards the targets we set for you. Equally, due to the science we use, we can determine your specific heart rate and power zones so we can get you training smarter, not harder.
