VO2 MAX Testing
Why VO2 MAX is an essential part of your fitness journey
VO2 Max is the ULTIMATE indicator is cardiovascular fitness. In the past, VO2 testing has only been available at hospitals, universities and pro athletes, but this technology is available to you! A VO2 Max test will help you to specifically identify the right intensity zones to hit your fitness goals. Whether you want to burn more fat or improve anaerobic fitness, you'll have the right data to be successful.
What are the key benefits of a VO2 Max test?
Get the most out of your workout.
Each person has optimal training zones. Currently, cardio machines and exercise charts that tell you target heart rates are actually just averages based on age and weight. Your VO2 MAX test measures your precise target heart rate based on anaerobic threshold, then calculates your unique Target Intensity Zones. These Zones give you the precise heart rates necessary to optimize each level of exercise and maximize your results. With Target Intensity Zones, you’ll work out smarter, not harder!
Decrease Fatigue and Injury
Frequently we push ourselves thinking, “no pain, no gain.” The truth is, pushing beyond one’s optimal training zone leads to fatigue and discomfort. It will also cause increased soreness after the workout and may contribute to exercise related injury. When you know your zones and use them for training, cardiovascular exercise is comfortable. Even a beginner can go the distance!
Burn more FAT!
VO2 testing reveals the exercise level that will optimize a person’s ability to burn fat. The term “aerobic exercise” has been commonly used in relation to burning fat. But without VO2 testing, fitness professionals have had to rely on crude estimates to determine what level of exercise intensity would be “aerobic” or fat burning. Now, with VO2 testing readily available, you can know the precise level of intensity that will truly maximize the amount of fat you burn.
With the information you gain from an RMR test, you can eliminate the guesswork of dieting and exercise. You can set daily calorie targets to increase, maintain or decrease your total body mass. You’ll know what your nutritional requirements are as well as how much and how long to exercise.
HOW IT WORKS
(It’s as easy as 1-2-3!)
- Put on a heart rate strap and face mask. The mask is connected to the CardioCoach device.
- Begin to exercise on a treadmill or cycle. Your trainer will instruct you to gradually increase your intensity over a period of 6 to 20 minutes.
- The CardioCoach will indicate when the test is completed. You can cool down while your Target Intensity Zones are calculated and printed in a simple, insightful report.
- You’ll review your results with your lab technician and discuss any questions you may have.
