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.
