Energy Lab is known as the reference in the field of training guidance. Both recreational and competitive runners could already visit the labs in Leuven, Paal-Beringen, Ghent and Rotterdam for a fitness test, extensive training advice and a fitting training schedule.
Running fitness test
Not only top athletes need a supported training schedule. As a recreational athlete, you can also achieve your goal more easily and efficiently with a customised schedule. With this running test we map your current fitness and you reach the finish.
Body composition analysis
To measure is to know. Thanks to the advanced DEXA scan you get a comprehensive muscle, fat and bone analysis of your body. Together we discuss the results in function of your objective.
Bij Energy Lab kan je ook terecht voor loopbegeleiding op maat. Hierbij sta je in nauw contact met je persoonlijke coach die je programma’s opmaakt, je trainings- en wedstrijdgegevens controleert en bijstuurt waar nodig. Er zijn 2 specifieke loopformules beschikbaar die verschillend zijn qua doelgroep en frequentie van contact.
Running condition test
It motivates me! As a very recreational, starting and not so young athlete, it is thanks to the good explanation and the feasible schedule that I have not yet given up on running. On the contrary: it motivates me to train 3 times a week!
Body composition analysis (DXA)
You get a good explanation of what all values mean, and a good insight into how your body is composed. I found it very interesting to see all percentages in black and white. Also a very nice welcome, very pleasant atmosphere. You also get good tips on how to reduce your fat percentage. Definitely recommended if you want to be more aware of your body.
Start 2 Run
The ideal app for novice runners, with this app you learn to run 5 km in one go in 30 lessons! After that, there are different series to build up to greater distances or better speeds! You can link these with Strava so that your achievements will automatically appear there too! You will also receive useful tips & tricks from warming up to nutritional advice! Do you want to learn to run then this app is definitely for you!
