Get More From Your Workout

We all have optimal training zones. But most fitness tests only tell you target heart rates based on averages based using age and weight.

Our DexaFit Cardio Fitness Test actually measures your precise target heart rate using your anaerobic threshold and identifies your unique Target Intensity Zones.

These Zones give you the precise heart rates and feedback needed to optimize your exercise and maximize your results.  You’ll work out smarter, not harder!

Less Fatigue. Recover Faster. 

Frequently we push ourselves thinking, “no pain, no gain.” But the truth is, pushing beyond our optimal training zone leads to fatigue and discomfort.

It increases soreness after your workout and causes exercise-related injuries. You also experience more stress on your immune system.

But when you know your target zones and use them for training, you train smarter and not harder. Some even say their exercise becomes 'comfortable,' yet they're getting better results!

Burn More Fat. Feel More Energy.

VO2 testing reveals the exercise level that will optimize a person’s ability to burn body fat. The term “aerobic exercise” has been commonly used in relation to burning fat.

But without VO2 testing, fitness professionals have had to rely on crude estimates to determine what level of exercise intensity would be “aerobic” or fat burning.

Now, with VO2 testing readily available, you can know the precise level of intensity that will truly maximize the amount of body fat you burn.

How is a VO2 Fitness Test Performed?

It's as easy as 1-2-3...

  1. Put on a heart rate strap and face mask. The mask is connected to our medical-grade metabolic cart (same one used by the Mayo Clinic).
  2. Begin to exercise with a light warmup. Your DexaFit tech will instruct you to gradually increase your intensity over a period of 10 to 20 minutes.
  3. Once the test is complete, you will cool down while your Cardio Fitness report is calculated and printed in a simple, insightful report.
  4. You will receive a consultation to review and discuss your results.
