Elite athletes know that VO2max testing is the gold standard way of measuring cardio fitness. It is an extremely challenging test both physically and mentally. The great thing about the test is that it is able to accurately determine components of cardio fitness such as:
- Peak oxygen consumption
- Calories burned at different heart rates
- Anaerobic and anaerobic thresholds
- Max heart rate tolerance
- Target heart rate intensity zones
From the results, specific heart rate training zones can be determined for any level of fitness capability. This will assist in enhancing training programs and improving performance and results quickly.
Many people would recognise the VO2max test as an exclusive test for elite endurance athletes. However the test is of great benefit to all levels of athletes and has clear value to people who are beginning or mid way through exercise programs.
Whether your goal is to enhance your fitness, lose weight, burn fat, or strategically plan for your next sports event, the VO2max test will help you achieve your goals!
The VO2max is the ultimate indicator of cardiovascular fitness, and available right here in Sydney Olympic Park at Precision Athletica.
