VO2max is the maximum or optimum rate at which the heart, lungs, and muscles can effectively use oxygen during exercise and is used as a way of measuring a person's individual aerobic capacity.

A high VO2max is typically a sign of a high level of cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance.

The Test Process

VO2max testing can be conducted on our treadmill or on your own bicycle using our computrainer. The test protocol will be determined by your consultant based on your current ability and goals.

During the test, participants will complete a maximal step test while wearing a mask to measure ventilation, oxygen and carbon dioxide concentration of the inhaled and exhaled air.

At the end of your test, your consultant will spend considerable time with you explaining your results and their application to your training.

How to Prepare

To maximise your test experience, it is important that you follow these basic instructions...

  • No or light training the day prior to your test
  • No training the day of your test
  • Come well hydrated and avoid caffeine and other stimulants that can affect your heart rate
  • Please arrive in comfortable sports attire – shorts, t-shirt or singlet, shoes
  • If you’re completing the test on the computrainer, you’ll need to bring your bicycle and related clothing and accessories.
  • This is a maximal test and we recommend seeking your doctor's approval prior to testing.

The results allow our consultants to determine your ideal fat burning heart rate zone and to recommend exercise and nutritional strategies that will improve your natural ability to burn fat.
