What is a VO2 Max Test?

A VO2 max test is a physiological assessment that measures the maximum volume of oxygen your body uses in response to exercise at increasing intensities.

This is used to determine your aerobic capacity and your physical fitness.

Benefits of VO2 Max Testing

VO2 max testing is used to assess the effectiveness of your training and conditioning. It can also be used to identify whether you may benefit from additional training or are at risk of overtraining. VO2 max testing also helps us to assess an individual’s endurance and physical performance potential in specific sports.

  • Aerobic Capacity Assessment: Gain insights into your body’s ability to utilise oxygen during exercise, providing valuable information about your cardiovascular fitness.
  • Training Effectiveness Evaluation: Assess the effectiveness of your training and conditioning programs to optimise performance and avoid overtraining.
  • Endurance Performance Potential: Understand your endurance and physical performance potential in specific sports, helping you tailor your training regimen for competitive success.

What to Expect From the Test

During the test, participants engage in exercise on a treadmill or Wattbike, gradually increasing intensity until exhaustion, while wearing a mask that measures oxygen consumption. This comprehensive assessment provides data on your aerobic capacity and physical fitness, allowing our experts to tailor training recommendations to your specific needs.
