VO2 Max Test
What is VO2Max?
Your VO2Max is one of the best markers for fitness and performance. Although not the only metric that matters, your VO2Max represents the ceiling of how much oxygen you can breathe in and convert to energy. The more energy you can convert, the more power and speed you can produce.
As well as being a measure for fitness, VO2Max testing provides you with much more than just this.
Based on your VO2Max test, we can accurately pinpoint your training zones (not the max heart rate nonsense), which enables you to target your training to achieve a specific outcome. This means you know what heart rate, power or speed you should be aiming for within each session.
Identify your strengths and weaknesses:
From a VO2Max test, we can compare your results to optimal values, which helps us decide your fitness area that needs more work. Is it endurance, high intensity exercise, or do you need to be more efficient? A VO2Max test can tell you this.
Who will benefit from a VO2Max test?
• Athletes - A VO2Max test can help sports people maximise their training to target them as individuals and for their specific sport. It can also help reduce the chances of injury by monitoring how hard you push.
• If you want to get fitter - If you’re looking to get fitter, a VO2Max test can target your training around your physiology and makeup. Knowing your VO2Max helps make your workouts more effective and efficient, so you get results more quickly.
• If you want to lose weight - A VO2Max test is not just for athletes. If your goal is weight loss, we can help you understand what intensities you burn the most amount of fat and how to burn the most amount of kcals.
