Been Fit at Fit Werx Before? Have Things Changed? Time for a Review?
The Periodic Fit Assessment is for riders and triathletes who have been fit at Fit Werx in the past five years, but who are ready for a review because something has changed (injury, advanced rider skill, riding more/less…); you want a refresher on their posture and technique; you want to verify things before buying a new bike; or you just want to keep digging deeper into the details of your positioning potential. The assessment is a streamlined version of our full fitting procedure that eliminates redundant elements that are unlikely to have changed, like skeletal measurements. It is priced at a discount as it takes less time than your initial fitting.
If you choose, we can make some or all of these changes to your bike immediately following your fit to guarantee that the position on your bike matches the position established on the Size Cycle (parts & labor priced separate).
Like a New Bike Fit or an Existing Bike Fit, you will receive a digital workbook that documents your position and technique before and after your fitting and includes all the key measurements needed to establish your position on any bike.
Time: 2-3 hours. The information from this fitting can be used anytime in the future to help you find the right new bike and the majority of the cost of this fit may be credited towards the purchase of a new bike through Fit Werx at anytime. Contact us for additional information or to schedule.
Periodic Fit Assessment Steps
Not all fit systems are the same or produce consistent results. We pride ourselves on viewing rider positioning scientifically and using a system that we have developed through our training, background and experience.
We offer attention to detail that is found in only a very small number of places in the country and we offer an array of services that is unparalleled in any other single location.
Like your original fitting, a Periodic Assessment starts with a detailed interview about how you are using your bike, things that have changed since your initial fitting as well as your current goals, challenges and injuries you would like addressed.
We reassess your range of motion, flexibility and stability in key cycling muscle groups as these can change (for better or for worse) over time. Your range of motion and muscle stabilization are important variables when it comes to proper alignment on the bike and building a position around your individual capabilities and needs. This helps us maximize your strength, comfort and efficiency on the bike.
If we see changes, we’ll reassess your feet, cleat set-up and alignment. If you did not get them during your initial fitting, often we will recommend cycling footbeds and cant wedges to accommodate for pronation/supination and forefoot varus/valgus. We make sure to put your feet, legs, pedals and shoes into the most aligned and powerful position possible.
4) Size Cycle Positioning & Postural Session
We set the size cycle up to your current riding position and put you back on it so that we can work with you to modify and polish your position and technique as efficiently as possible. Whether it be nagging saddle issues, muscle discomfort, cramping, aerodynamic potential or a host of other items, we’ll focus on the places that will benefit you the most (which is different for each rider). A full motion capture and technique analysis session is included, just like your original fitting, and we also use saddle pressure mapping and other tools as they make sense for the rider and their goals/issues.
