With our VO2 max tests we help you reach your athletic potential and get the most out of your training. Our VO2 max testing helps piece together your athletic puzzle through assessing: cardiopulmonary function, power output and aerobic capacity.
VO2 Max Test
A VO2 max test is the best assessment there is for determining your bodies ability to utilise oxygen and energy. V02 max is a key performance indictor that is utilised at top level sports all around the world. It identifies how much oxygen your body can use to generate energy. Understanding how your body works to create energy allows for your training methods to be optimised to maximise performance.
Why undergo a VO2 Max test?

What does the test involve?
- A V02 max test is a graded exercise test completed on either an exercise bike or treadmill. A graded exercise test is where the exercise begins light and progressively becomes harder throughout
- During the assessment you will be monitored through a gas analysis mask and a 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG). These measurements give us the most comprehensive understanding of how your body creates energy to reach a maximal state
- The test is stopped when you choose to or when the exercise physiologist identifies you are at your physiological maximum
What do you get out of the assesment?
You receive a detailed report that includes:
