The below video explains what a VO2 max test is and whether or not you should include lactate analysis. Please watch this video as well as the one below it before your scheduled appointment.

The below video was originally recorded to help you understand your data post-test. However we highly recommend you watch the video prior to your test so you have a basic understanding of what the numbers mean. We will not have time to explain what all the metrics mean unless you pay for an additional 30-minute consult. In order for us to give you the best training advice, it’s important that you watch the below and familiarise yourself with the basics explained.
