What Is VO2 Max Exercise Testing?
At My Concierge MD our team of doctors are committed to our patients’ preventive healthcare and maximized exercise plans. That end, we offer VO2 max testing, rarely performed in physician’s offices. The VO2 max test is different from a stress test and help us assess overall fitness, cardiac health and lung function.
VO2 exercise testing or VO2 max test can provide direct information about a patient’s body, fitness level, endurance as well as serve as a guide to improve exercise and weight loss programs.
VO2 max, which is a key indicator that is measured during test, refers to the maximal capacity of a person’s body to transport and use oxygen during incremental exercise. This will demonstrate a patient’s physical fitness.
Benefits of VO2 Exercise Testing
We have unique bodies, and at My Concierge MD, uniqueness of our clients is our specialty.
When a patient exercises aerobically, the most critical component of their workouts is the intensity. In fact, most people work out too hard, and their regimen is not focused as specifically as it could be. The VO2 max test is the only way to determine the best intensities for one’s workout regiment, for those wanting to lose weight, train for endurance or athletes wanting to build up sustainable speed or reach their goals faster and with less difficulty. We will teach you how to increase vo2 max effectively.
