VO2 Max

Fitness Testing

VO2 Max is the ULTIMATE indicator is cardiovascular fitness. In the past, VO2 testing has only been available at hospitals and universities. But now EP Rehab Specialty brings this technology to you!

Get the most out of your workout

Decrease Fatigue and Injury

Each person has optimal training zones. Exercise equipment and charts that tell you target heart rates are actually just averages based on age and weight. Our laboratory grade equipment measures your precise target heart rate based on anaerobic threshold, then calculates your unique Target Intensity Zones. These Zones give you the precise heart rates necessary to optimize each level of exercise and maximize your results. With Target Intensity Zones, you’ll work out smarter, not harder!

Frequently we push ourselves thinking, “no pain, no gain.” The truth is, pushing beyond one’s optimal training zone leads to fatigue and discomfort. It will also cause increased soreness after the workout and may contribute to exercise related injury. When you know your zones and use them for training, cardiovascular exercise is comfortable. Even a beginner can go the distance!

Burn more FAT!

VO2 testing reveals the exercise level that will optimize a person’s ability to burn fat. The term “aerobic exercise” has been commonly used in relation to burning fat. But without VO2 testing, fitness professionals have had to rely on crude estimates to determine what level of exercise intensity would be “aerobic” or fat burning. Now, with VO2 testing readily available, you can know the precise level of intensity that will truly maximize the amount of fat you burn.

How Is A VO2 Test Performed? (It’s as easy as 1-2-3!)

1) Put on a heart rate strap and face mask. The mask is connected to our analyzing device.

2) Begin to exercise on a treadmill or cycle. You will be instructed to gradually increase your intensity over a period of 6 to 20 minutes.

3) Our equipment will indicate when the test is completed. You can cool down while your Target Intensity Zones are calculated and printed in a simple, insightful report.
