Aerobic Fitness / Vo2max Assessment

Unfortunately, the VO2max assessment is currently not available until further notice due to equipment servicing. We will update this page when VO2max testing has resumed.

As assessed by maximal exercise stress test using Cortex Metalyser 3B on either bicycle ergometer or treadmill. The VO2 max is regarded as the gold standard test for aerobic fitness, and describes an individual’s ability to take in and utilise oxygen by the working muscles.

You will be sent a medical screening questionnaire which must be completed prior to testing to check suitability for a VO2 max test. If it is deemed not suitable, we may suggest an alternative submaximal exercise test.

Interested in a package of baseline assessments? See our fitness assessment packages here.

Live availability and online booking for VO2max assessments can be made via ‘You Can Book Me’. Alternatively please email Will Gowers and we will accommodate your request as best as possible.
