Cardiovascular Fitness Testing
A VO2 test measures the amount of oxygen your body uses at different exertion levels while you exercise on a bike or treadmill. This is done as you breath through a mask during a short workout. The recorded information is then used to calculate your personal Target Intensity Zones. These zones will give you the specific target heart rate required for each level of intensity. Exercising within your zones will get you results that will amaze you!
This measurement is generally considered the best indicator of cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance. The more oxygen a person can use during high intensity exercise, the more energy a person can produce. Following the test clients leave with an accurate measurement of his/her current fitness level and a plan to improve their fitness level.
