Improve your time, Maximize Workout
VO2 Max is the measure of an individual’s maximum capacity to transport and utilize oxygen during exercise. Our VO2 Max test measures key data including peak VO2, anaerobic threshold, and the precise amount of calories burned at all exercise heart rate levels. This data can be used as the foundation for customized exercise programs that truly meet the needs of the individual.
An oxygen-measuring mask is attached to the athlete while they are exercising on a treadmill or on a stationary cycle. The athlete is then submitted through increasingly more strenuous exercise while measuring their rate of oxygen use.
VO2 max capacity is more than simply knowing how much oxygen is used. It is a basic benchmark of athletic capacity. Empower yourself with the ability to meet your fitness goals efficiently and safely with no unnecessary fatigue or wasted time.
