What is Fitness Testing? Fitness testing is a vital tool for those who are looking to improve their health and fitness. One of the most important tests is VO2Max, a measurement of how much oxygen your body can utilise during exercise, VO2Max is the gold standard measurement of health and fitness and directly linked to mortality and Cardiometabolic disease. Performed on a treadmill, rower or stationary bike, and involves gradually increasing the intensity of the work until you reach your max level. Your heart rate and oxygen consumption are measured and used to calculate your VO2Max score. This number is used to track your progress over time and see how your health and fitness has improved. In addition, it is also used as a predictor of performance potential and to set realistic fitness goals. Who is it for ? Athletes - A VO2Max test can help sportspersons maximise their training.
