HOW IT WORKS

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

 The VO2 max test is done to determine your aerobic capacity. Poor fitness level is associated with an increased risk for chronic illnesses, such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular health. 

Conversely, good fitness level significantly reduces your likelihood of developing chronic illness. For  active individuals  and athletes, VO2 max assessment is vital for training and  performance. 

 

WHAT RESULTS WILL I RECEIVE?

A Certified Exercise Physiologist will review your results. You will receive online access to your results (test results with interpretation) within one business day.

 

WHAT IS THE TEST PROTOCOL?

Prior to the test you will undergo an EKG to ensure that you can safely perform exercise testing. The EKG is safe, painless, and a quick test that measures the electrical activity of your heart. The  test will be  done on a cycle ergometer, which is similar to a stationary bicycle.  During the test, you may be connected to a metabolic cart that measure the amount of oxygen that you breathe in and the amount of CO2 that your body produces through your breathing. You will then complete a short warm up. 

During the test, your blood pressure, heart rate, and heart activity will be monitored for safety. During this test, the intensity will gradually increase and you will be required to work harder and harder until, ultimately, you are working as hard as  you  can  work. This should take somewhere between 10 and 20 minutes. Once you reach the point at which you cannot work any harder, the test will be complete.  

 

 How Must I prepare?

The VO2 max can only be done after we receive an approval from your regular doctor. This referral form is intended to inform your doctor that you are participating in this test and ensure that your doctor feels this is appropriate and safe.

 

 How Often Should I test?

There is no set time frame that we recommend that our clients retest, but many like to retest throughout their training for endurance events. By performing several tests, they can see if their training is effective or if they need to make adjustments.
