VO2 Max Testing

Low cardio-respiratory fitness has been linked to poor health outcomes but is not often tested or treated. With an improved cardio fitness comes better health outcomes.


What is it? Measuring your cardio fitness using a highly accurate test bike called a Monark Ergometer.

How do we test? 

  • You complete a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire to ensure your suitability for the test or get GP clearance.

  • You cycle on the ergometer bike at a constant workload for 7 minutes. Your heart-rate is measured each minute and your steady state heart rate is  determined.

  • Your VO2max is given as poor, fair, good, excellent 

  • We will offer advice on how to improve your fitness

How much does it cost? $60
