unlocking human performance
because bike fitting is just the beginning..
we provide physiotherapy to unlock the athletes full potential
we use the latest tools and technology in our studio during a bike fit, but the quality of the fit depends more on the training and skill level of the fitter than the technology used.
we can provide semi-custom and fully custom insoles
we provide education about riding techniques and correcting bad habits
We team up a bike fitter and a physiotherapist to determine the best fit so the body and bike can work as efficiently as possible.

physiotherapy, bike fitting, adjustments to equipment, education & biomechanics.... that is being powered by Fahrenheit Performance.
who is Fahrenheit Performance?
Fahrenheit Performance is a group of Allied Health Professionals and Sports and Performance Enthusiasts who believe in optimising human potential through the manipulation of mechanics and sports science.
Cycling Performance Engineer
Martin has a Masters Degree from Columbia University and an Engineering degree from University of Western Australia. While studying and living in the USA, he was an avid cyclist and competitive racer in the Northern CA amateur racing circuit. Now based in Singapore, Martin founded Fahrenheit Performance and has the role of the Cycling Performance Engineer & Bike Fitter. He works on the interface between the mechanics of the body and bicycle to optimise performance by manipulating physics and biomechanical changes with the rider’s musculoskeletal conditions while increasing performance and reducing injury.
Martin is a certified bike fitter (RETUL Master Fitter, Gebiomized - Level 2, SICI - Certified) and also a USA Cycling Coach (Level 2). He has worked with competitive cyclists in Singapore, USA and Australia.

services we provide
it's all about increasing your comfort & performance
dynamic bike fit
Fftting the bike to the body
A bike fit is the evaluation of the rider’s physical condition and needs, then adjusting the rider’s position accordingly. With the evolution of sports science, cyclists are looking for marginal gains in order to win races, be most aerodynamic and to become a more efficient athlete, but some just want to ride more comfortably or pain free.
Sometimes, it’s about fitting for comfort vs aerodynamics with goal of reducing injuries and improving efficiency.
clinical bike fit
fitting the body to the bike
If a traditional bike fit is fitting the bike to the body, a clinical bike fit also fits the body to the bike. During the functional assessment if there are any pathologies that can be facilitated through physiotherapy then it will be done prior to the start of the on-bike analysis. At times the bike needs adjustments and other times it is the body that needs adjusting. We team up a bike fitter and a physiotherapist to determine the best fit so the body and bike can work as efficiently as possible.
educating the rider about pedaling technique and positional awareness
a lot can be learned from watching a rider pedal and how they sit on the saddle and hold the handlebars.
correcting bad habits improves efficiency and performance.
understanding your strengths & weaknesses
we first benchmark the Riders Power Profile by Index efforts of 5 s, 1 min, 5 min, and Functional Threshold Power [FTP] as they best reflect neuromuscular power, anaerobic capacity, maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and lactate threshold (LT).
this information can then be used to plan an indivualised training program, identify the rider's strengths & weaknesses and target events where they might be expected to achieve the greatest success.
customised training plans
tailored to your needs
based on your power profile we can build a custom training plan to suit your individual needs.
from a weekend warriors just trying not to get dropped on group rides to elite cyclists training to win the national championships, we can plan a plan for you.
all workouts are designed to elicit an appropriate response based on your history and goals.
products we sell
we are not a bike shop however we do sell selected items that compliment the services that we provide.
