A VO2 max test involves a graded exercise test on a treadmill or your own personal bike. The test begins at a very light intensity and gets slightly harder each minute until maximum exertion is reached. Approximately 6-12 minutes depending on your fitness level. The subject wears a mask and the volume of expired air along with the percentages of oxygen and carbon dioxide from this data. Results are printed and discussed.

Process of Test

You will be invited to sit in a comfortable position. A nose clip will be placed on your nose. You will be given a MetaBreather mouthpiece to breathe into. You will be breathing in fresh air from the room, but the gas that you breathe out will go through a tube into the metabolic analyzer to measure your metabolic rate. Make a tight seal with your lips around the mouthpiece to ensure that all the air you exhale will be analyzed. After about 10-15 minutes the device will beep, indicating it is finished. Results are printed and discussed.
