Athletic Assessment


At Carlisle Performance Systems, your training program (in-person programs only) begin with a Carlisle Athletic Profile (CAP), a proprietary athletic assessment for athletes that has been designed, and proven, to give you (or, your child) a competitive edge.

The CAP is the most comprehensive, data-driven proprietary assessment in the private sector. It’s the entry point of designing a world-class training program geared toward meeting your individual needs and is administered at our Strength and Conditioning facility in San Jose, CA.

It was through the utilization of and collaboration with with sports scientists, sports medicine, sports performance researchers and other athletic professionals that shaped our comprehensive athletic assessment to identify an athlete’s “window of adaptation” to improve speed and agility, while also minimizing risk of injury.

We, along with some of the industry’s most elite sports scientists, have developed a proprietary algorithm that will measure your athletic capacity with a plethora of data points by testing mobility, asymmetry, force production, speed, power and change of direction speed, reaction time, asymmetries left side vs right side, and much more.

By testing literally thousands of athletes over more than a decade, we’ve compiled plenty of data to provide athletic norms and prevent the waste of huge amounts of money on training that may or may not work.

Upon completion of the Carlisle Athletic Profile, we will develop a personal training plan for you which is aimed at raising your athletic ceiling and your specific genetic potential.

We will maximize every one of your training sessions, armed with our strength and conditioning staff’s ability to help you jump higher, run faster, and become more flexible.



The assessment is included in the training that you choose and is completed in the first session.

What exactly do the assessments identify?

No matter which assessment and profile you choose, we will identify what your athlete’s weakest link is to help them improve their overall athletic performance. In addition, we’ll be able to identify your athlete’s strongest links are so we can make the strong stronger.

In essence, the tests are a composite of a certain athletic development skill, which can provide both coaches and the athlete with information to help improve overall performance.

The Carlisle Athletic Assessment & Profile (CAP) is the most comprehensive assessment we have. It includes the testing metrics from each of the three subset assessments (Speed, Jump, and Fitness), culminating in a comprehensive profile of the entire athlete.

The Lightning Fast Speed Assessment & Profile measures acceleration, top end speed, change of direction and asymmetries which may be present between right and left sides.

The Lightning Fast Jump Assessment & Profile measures how fast and explosive you are, how quickly you get off the ground, how high you jump, and any right/left asymmetries while jumping.

The Fitness Assessment & Profile is Carlisle Performance’s upgraded version of the standard fitness tests. Not only do we include the usual fitness assessments like push ups and pull ups, but we measure body composition and conduct a movement assessment as well.

There are also the sports-specific profiles that have different metrics pertaining to the sport.

We recommend testing every six weeks as a way to gauge whether the program you’re doing is improving performance. At Carlisle Performance we assess, we don’t guess.

Our programs are backed by science and get results, so we love assessment time. It’s where you get to show off your gains!

If you’re not yet training with us, you can still come in for an assessment every six weeks to ensure the training you’re doing is as effective as it can be.

We test both individuals and teams. We can even add tests if you have a specific testing requirement for your team.

You’ll receive a login and password to view your results within 48 hours. Another cool feature we offer is longitudinal viewing – meaning if you test every six weeks (as we recommend) you’ll be able to see your test results over time so track your progress and compare some before and after results.

We do not provide normative data because our emphasis for all our assessments is for you as an individual. Everything we do is custom-to-you based on your starting points and your strengths and weaknesses.

We conduct assessments at the beginning of a training program, which you’ll be able to see those results.

Then we typically conduct another assessment after six weeks to show the progress that’s been made.

With our high testing standards, we provide objective data which demonstrates the performance data gained while part of a Carlisle Performance training program.
