Why VO2 Max?

How can this help my training at EPT?

Each person has an optimal training zone. The charts you’ve seen are simply estimates. VO2max testing measures your precise target heart rate based on your aerobic and anaerobic thresholds. It then precisely calculates your individual heart rates in order to maximize your results.


Knowing your intensity zones allows your EPT trainer to provide a more detailed prescriptive program, and track your progress.

About Testing

How is the test performed?

You will put on a heart rate strap and face mask. The mask is connected by a hose to the testing device. You will begin to exercise on either a treadmill or stationary cycle. Your trainer will gradually increase the intensity over a period of about 5 to 20 minutes. Your anaerobic threshold will be detected by the device, which will indicate that your test is completed. You can cool down while your VO2max results are calculated and printed in a simple, insightful report.

How long does it take?

About an hour; the actual time may depend on fitness level.


How quickly do you get results?

Results are viewed in real-time and available immediately.

Testing Fee: $150
