Aerobic Capacity (VO2) Max

Screen Shot 2016-12-07 at 1.01.10 PM.pngA VO2 Max Test is a measurement that reflects a person’s ability to perform sustained exercise. It is generally considered the best indicator of cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance. The actual measurement is “milliliters of oxygen used in one minute per kilogram of body weight.” It is suitable for a wide range of individuals, from the sedentary to elite athletes.

Achieve Better Results With a VO2 Assessment!

A VO2 assessment can greatly improve the effectiveness of your workout.  Whether you’re new to exercise or trying to break through a training plateau, knowing your aerobic capacity is your first step to better conditioning. The test takes less than one hour.

Who can benefit from aerobic capacity testing?

Anyone wanting to exercise smarter: Knowing your ideal heart rate training zone has never been easier.  And it’s especially important when you first start to exercise, or when you notice staleness in your program.  The fact is, too many people mistakenly exercise too hard and exceed their ideal heart rate.  When you know your ideal training zones you’re less likely to over-exert yourself.  Your VO2 assessment will also tell you the number of calories you burn during every level of exercise.  

Athletes wanting to train harder: Athletes know there’s no substitution for hard work.  You also know that hard work combined with smart work gives you the potential for great accomplishments.  Your complete fitness test will include your peak or maximum measured VO2.  If you are able to perform at your maximum effort level, then this will be your VO2 max – the maximum amount of oxygen your body can consume. This information is shown along with your Aerobic Threshold and Anaerobic Threshold. Sub-max testing is also an option.

The bottom line is you can achieve better results in weight loss, general fitness, or athletic performance with an aerobic capacity assessment.
