We offer two VO2 max tests, a basic and advanced test

What is a Basic VO2max Test?

Maximal Oxygen Uptake (VO2max) is one of the physiological determinants of endurance performance. VO2max is the maximum rate at which your body can effectively use oxygen during exercise. During exercise, the more oxygen you can use means the more energy you can produce. There are a variety of protocols used to estimate VO2max, but none are as accurate as direct testing, which we use in this test to give you an accurate appraisal of your exercise performance.

You will complete a ramp test until exhaustion with expired gas analysis, and a basic report will be provided to you giving your VO2max, training zones (both heart rate and power), and other details. No post-test consultation is included in this test package.

How long does it take?

A Basic VO2max Test takes 30 minutes.

What do I need?

When attending your test please come equipped with your bike, kit and bike shoes. It is also advised to bring a drink of plain water and a towel.




What is an Advanced VO2max Test?

The Advanced VO2max test will include the same protocol and test procedures as the Basic VO2max test; but importantly, this test package comes with a discussion of your results and training advice given by our experienced Sports Scientists or Coaches. If you’re looking to get a full grasp of your current performance levels, develop a good understanding of what training will be necessary for your performance improvement.
