The maximum amount of oxygen the body can utilise. Often termed the ‘gold standard’ measurement of aerobic capacity. The data also provides key ventilatory thresholds and HR intensity zones allowing you to train with more accuracy and precision.
This test measures the efficiency of an athletes ability to oxidise fat and carbohydrate over a range of exercise intensities. If you are an endurance athlete this test is crucial for you. During the test, the intensity begins at a low intensity and increases every 3-4 minutes depending on the training status of the athlete.
If you are an athlete or an individual that wants a greater understanding of their health or performance then our performance tests are ideally suited to you.
