VO2Max Testing – with Cardio Coach Plus
One-Size-Fits-All Does Not Fit Anyone Well
Ever wondered about VO2Max testing? Standard cardio equipment uses an age-based scale that estimates optimal heart rate zones where you are supposed to maximize your workout. But you, the individual, have a unique anaerobic threshold and meeting your fitness goals requires knowing this number and using it properly.
WHAT AM I TESTING?
The exact amount of oxygen consumed with each breath. There is a direct relationship between calories burned and the amount of oxygen consumed.
If you know how much oxygen you are using, you can determine the exact number of calories burned at every level of exercise.
Your results serve as a medical foundation for a truly personal and optimal exercise program. You should re-test every 3-6 months to track your progress.
Cardio Coach Plus:the gold standard in VO2Max testing, finding scientific heart rate training zones for individual patients at every level of fitness. Resting metabolic rate is tested through a simple breathing exercise performed while comfortably seated.
Cardio Coach has been independently validated at the University of Southern California in a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.
