Before You Test

You’re a serious athlete, but train based on how you feel or use formulas or field tests to determine your training zones. Things are ok, but you’re not sure of your current level of fitness or whether you’re maximising your time and getting the best results from your training.

After You Test

You know your ventilatory thresholds and have a good understanding of your current level of fitness and your endurance potential. You have clear training zones for pace, power (on the bike) and heart rate and know when to use the zones. You execute your training with more confidence and can easily track your progress over time.

Here's How
We Do It

The VO2max test measures the maximum or optimum rate at which the heart, lungs, and muscles can effectively use oxygen during exercise. A high VO2max is a sign of a high level of cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance.

 

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

 

We use the data collected during the test to determine your ventilatory thresholds, and establish specific heart rate and pace/power training zones to help you improve your sport-specific performance.
