VO2max is the body’s maximal ability to uptake oxygen. Utilizing the same system as Olympic training centers, NASA, and professional researchers, Science of Speed coaches can analyze your results to provide you with information that can help you compare your fitness level to athletes at all levels.

VO2max testing can also provide coaches and athletes with heart rate ranges. With the information provided from our research grade metabolic cart, we can determine the validity of a true VO2max and peak heart rate.

Testing takes roughly 1.5 hours*, and the final minutes of testing are carried out at maximal intensity. During the test, a mouthpiece is inserted in the athlete’s mouth to capture all expired air, which is then compared with inspired air concentrations.

*if paired with a lactate threshold test, time to completion is roughly 2.5-3 hours.
