Elite athletes know that VO2 max testing is the gold standard way of measuring cardio fitness. It is an extremely challenging test both physically and mentally.  The great thing about the test is that it is able to accurately determine components of cardio fitness such as:

  • Peak oxygen consumption
  • Calories burned at different heart rates
  • Anaerobic and anaerobic thresholds
  • Max heart rate tolerance
  • Target heart rate intensity zones

From the results, specific heart rate training zones can be determined for the assessed. This will assist in enhancing training programs and improving performance quickly.

Many people would recognise the VO2 max test as an exclusive test for elite endurance athletes. However, the test is of great benefit to all levels of athletes and has clear value to triathletes. 

Whether your goal is to enhance your fitness, lose weight, burn fat, or strategically plan out the various stages of your next triathlon, the VO2 max test will help you achieve your goals! 

The VOmax is the ultimate indicator of cardiovascular fitness, and Triathlon NSW's partner Precision Athletica now brings you CardioCoach technology to ensure you’re training at your full potential to achieve your goals.
