Did you know that, when applied in a goal-based setting, ARDA’s proven, patented methodologies have resulted in nearly 9 out of 10 participants achieving their fitness goals? This is in contrast to just 1 in 10 participants in a control group achieving their goal without the help of the ARDA.


Performance Lab ran a formal five-year study on 1,500 primarily non-active, non-experienced and recreational participants to measure the outcomes when prescription of training was automatically matched to physiology and experience — that is to say, when specific fact based advice was provided according to pre-defined rules. The goal was to measure what and how much effect we observed in performance outcomes, behavioral change, physiological change and self-motivation.

To validate our outcomes, we repeated the study each year for five years on many of the same people, with some additional new participants each year. We ran a control group of 100 whereby the participants were expected to complete the same goals but without the measured support given to the test group.

Goal-based Outcomes

Interestingly, just 9% of the control group made it to the designated event, with varied performance outcomes. In contrast, in the ARDA group, 89% of participants reached the start line of their desired goal event and 100% of those who started the event completed the event. This result was achieved for five consecutive years!

Physiological Outcomes

Physiological or health outcomes in the ARDA group included a 22% improvement in aerobic fitness, 5% reduction in BMI, 11% reduction in heart rate and a 5% reduction in cholesterol.

Results from reassessments and surveys indicate that:

  • 97% enjoyed the experience
  • 97% would do it again
  • 72% rated higher energy levels
