Cardiorespiratory fitness plays an important role in our overall health in preventing cardiovascular diseases (e.g. heart attack), metabolic syndromes (e.g. diabetes) and it is also associated with our bone mineral density. To improve our cardiorespiratory fitness, exercising at the right intensity is important. Hence, an analysis of your current fitness level is important in designing the right exercise plan for you.

What you can get from the test: (depending on the type of tests performed)

  1. Fitness level
  2. Aerobic and anaerobic training thresholds
  3. Most effective intensity to burn fat
  4. Pacing strategy during an endurance event
  5. Refuelling strategy during long endurance events
  6. Individualised training program
