It all started more than 10 years ago at the German Sport University (DSHS) in Cologne. There, as young sport students, we made our first experiences in the field of training support of endurance athletes. Back then we often found that the lactate threshold test which was a classic at that time, was not only imprecise, but also provided very little information on the individual training of athletes.
Therefore, we developed a special test method: STAPS diagnostics. It is not only more precise, but also provides information on physiology and energy metabolism of the respective athlete. Thanks to our diagnostics and the training recommendations and plans deriving from it, STAPS has become the most successful training institute in the German-speaking area in the past few years. No matter whether you are a hobby athlete or World Champion – STAPS is your top address on your journey to athletic success!

STAPS Aero- & BikeFit
The decisive prerequisite to a successful development of performance on the bike is a unity of athlete, equipment and bike. For an ideal riding position two criteria are relevant: your aerodynamics – and with it an air resistance that is as low as possible – as well as your stability and comfort on the saddle. We offer you various bike fittings in our laboratories or on the track in which our experts analyze your riding or aero position by means of state-of-the-art technology. This way, we will find the ideal discipline-specific position for you step by step!
Our bike fittings take place in our highly technological gebioMized concept labs that are characterized by state-of-the-art video analysis, pressure measurements at the contact points saddle, foot and arm pads as well as the option of custom-made saddles and insoles. Our aero optimizations in which our aero fitter measure your air resistance in real time and find the individual position that combines perfect aerodynamics and ideal stability take place on indoor tracks.
Use your full potential – with our Aero- and BikeFits
From Alpine crossing to triathlon long-distance race – we got the ideal fitting for you!
