VO2 Max Testing*
Metabolic cart testing is used to measure your unique optimal training zone. The optimal training zone is when you exercise at different intensities to meet different fitness goals. Some intensity levels burn more fat, some increase endurance, and some focus strengthening your heart. Metabolic cart testing and VO2 testing can help find your target intensity zones and pinpoint your specific heart rates required for each level.
Fagan Sports and Lifestyle Medicine's staff uses the CardioCoach CO2 metabolic cart to accurately measure carbon dioxide and oxygen entering and leaving your body during exercise. Having a board-certified physician, exercise physiologist, and nutritionist to interpret your physiological data is the key to ensuring that the exercise program and nutrition program will accomplish your goals.
