Main Laboratory – West Midlands

Unit 34, Pillaton Hall Farm, Pillaton, Penkridge, Staffordshire, ST19 5RZ

Whilst we are in the heart of the countryside, our main fitness testing facility is located conveniently in the centre of country just a few minutes from the motorway networks of M6, M6 Toll, and M54, and around 15 mins from the M5, making it very easy to get to if you are travelling by road.

If travelling by train, there is good services to Stafford, Wolverhampton, Lichfield and Rugeley.  All are about 20-30 mins by taxi to the laboratory.

If you want to stay locally, we are minutes from the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which provides excellent cycling (road and off-road), running, walking and outdoor activities.  You can stay onsite at the camping/caravanning site at Pillaton Hall Farm, or there are a range of good hotels locally, if you wished to stay overnight.


Central London – Le Beau Velo

Ground Floor, 2-8 Scrutton Street, London, EC2A 4RT

Since 2011 we have been working in collaboration with Le Beau Velo in Central London.  This gives us a base for full fitness and VO2max testing for running, cycling and triathlon in the heart of the City.

Le Beau Velo is a unique facility which, whilst at heart is a bike shop offering a personalised fitting service and selling hand made Italian Frames from the likes of Legend, Fondriest and Formigli, they are fast becoming the destination of choice for athletes in the know as they now provide a base for sports related physiotherapy, chiropractors, and pain management clinics.  They are also soon to be offering podiatry and nutritional support services too.

Whilst Dr Palmer is only able to offer the Sportstest services from Le Beau Velo on one day per week, he is able to offer both early and evening appointments.  Please contact us for further details and availability.


Sportstest to YOU

National or international!?

We are also able to offer the same high level of testing at a venue to suit you.  Our apparatus is fully portable (with the exception of our treadmills), and so we are able to visit you either nationally, or internationally!

Whether you are a club, or a group of friends – a minimum of 3 people is required, with a maximum of 5 per day.  For cycle fitness testing all we need is a suitable venue (well ventilated, with good power availability, suitable work surface etc.) and we can come to you.  For running and triathlon testing, there will need to be unrestricted access to an appropriate treadmill.

We are able to offer our mobile testing both during the week, or at the weekend.  For more detailed information on this service, please contact us.
