Cortex VO2max Testing

XpertHealth uses the Cortex VO2max testing system for CardioPulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET).  The VO2max test is a highly specialized performance test to help determine your current cardiopulmonary fitness level.

Testing is performed on a stationary bike or treadmill and uses specialized equipment to collect data on your heart rate, breathing, and work performed.  The test provides information on your maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max), ventilatory thresholds, respiratory exchange ratio, maximal heart rate, and heart rate zones.

Based on the data obtained during the test, our Xperts can provide you with a customized training program to assist you in distance, speed, or power.  XpertHealth is here to help you reach your personal training goals and will conduct regular follow-ups.

Testing Procedures

The VO2max test is conducted on a stationary bike and lasts from 12-20 minutes. You will be monitored by our Xpert throughout the entire test. Please expect 45-60 minutes for the total appointment as our Xpert will explain the test and results thoroughly.
