Take a 30-minute advanced fitness test powered by Wattbike

Wattbike is an intelligent smart trainer. We’ll use it to put you through your paces in a wide range of tests designed to explore the efficiency of your heart and bloodflow system. For example, how much oxygen you use, your peak heart rate, and your maximum power output.

Based on your scores, you’ll get an in-depth assessment of your fitness level plus a comprehensive personalised 12-week programme to help you improve your performance and fitness. This will specify your ideal personal training zones so that you can achieve more, more safely.

With the Watt bike assessment the following measurements can be collected:

  • Predicted V02 Maximum
  • Cardio respiratory fitness score - which will link clients to a 13 week watt bike training plan on the WB app dependent on their score (requires a watt bike).
  • More accurate measurement of max HR – useful for heart rate training zones
  • Max minute power – max wattage they can maintain for a minute straight
  • Functional threshold power – max wattage they can maintain for an hour straight
  • Functional threshold – FTP represented as a heart rate
  • Leg balance – if they are more dominant in one leg than the other.

The assessment also includes access to Boost, two lifestyle coaching sessions and access to the My Bupa portal which will hold your personal health report and action plan as well as a range of information, videos and online coaching programmes.

You will also gain 24/7 access to Bupa nurses via our Bupa Anytime HealthLine.

Have an in-depth consultation with one of our expert health advisers

All of our health advisers either come from a nursing background or are qualified in exercise physiology, nutrition or health science fields. During your health assessment, you’ll spend an hour having a range of tests and focusing on your health and fitness goals. Among other things:

  • You’ll use your personal data to choose a lifestyle module, which will then be supported by a year’s behaviour change coaching
  • You’ll have a heart-rhythm screening plus tests for type 2 diabetes, anaemia and cholesterol
  • We’ll do a mobility and flexibility review
  • We’ll discuss your mental health and wellbeing

Spend up to 60 minutes with a doctor

You’ll have chance to talk about whatever’s on your mind – including your mental and physical health, your fitness, and any risks you face. The doctor will run a series of tests if appropriate to your personal circumstances. For women who have concerns, there’s also a breast examination plus a cervical smear for the over-25s. And for men, there are testicular and prostate checks.
