INSCYD is the most advanced tool to analyze endurance performance in athletes. INSCYD creates a full metabolic performance profile of an athlete. This includes: aerobic capacity, glycolytic capacity, anaerobic threshold, energy cost of locomotion, fuel contribution (Fat vs. Carbohydrate), lactate accumulation & recovery, aerobic vs. anaerobic energy contribution, and many more performance metrics.


Derived from more then 30 years of research and development.

Based on more then 150 fundamental research studies.

Applied by the worlds most progressive coaches to help winning multiple competition in different sports.

Empowered the rise of Europe's most successful coaching business.

... now available for you!

Podium Sports Medicine is proud to be one of the first providers of INSCYD in the United States, and the only provider in the Southeast.

INSCYD testing became popular within professional sports because of its accuracy. For example, detecting anaerobic threshold is 4-5x more accurate when compared to traditional lactate testing. The 2nd most popular feature with coaches and athletes was the prediction capabilities- being able to identify what to train for. Due to the outstanding accuracy of the methods, and compelling performance prediction capacities (proven by Weber in 2003), professional cycling became interested. In 2006, Weber would become head sport scientist of one of cycling’s biggest teams: T-Mobile. During Weber’s time as head sport scientist of T-Mobile Team and its predecessors (Highroad, HTC, Columbia) would become the most successful teams in the history of cycling. Weber would eventually become one of cycling’s most successful coaches of the past decade. This includes more than 9 world championship medals and more than 130 victories to the athletes he worked with over a 10 year period.

During 2007-2015 this method was restricted to pro sports, primarily swimming and cycling. It was used by HTC for pacing strategy, but more importantly, as a tool to test riders before they were signed by the team. Since this technology was so integral to the success of HTC, the technology was kept secret by the team. Only in the last year of HTC, did small STAPS logos appear on the teams website. Since then, this technology has been used by Cannondale, Katusha, the French National Swimming Federation, and more.
