Discover The Right Intensity.

No more crude estimates. Find your precise level of exercise intensity to burn fat, maximize recovery, and optimize your performance.


Vo2max Performance


DexaFit's Vo2max test pinpoints your precise fitness level, pure endurance potential, and cardiovascular degeneration. Learn yours if you want to exercise smarter, avoid overtraining, and detect any early signs of disease.


1. Increase your energy levels and endurance.

  • Proper training at your VO2max improves your body’s power grid. It strengthens your heart, improves blood flow and metabolism, and makes your muscles more efficient. Your VO2max itself also increases.

2. Prevent overexertion.

  • Overexertion is counterproductive to good health and fitness. It can also cause injury, prolong recovery, and stress your immune system. 

3. Diminish your risk of disease.

  • VO2max is a more reliable health and longevity indicator than factors like tobacco use, blood pressure, and cholesterol. Lower VO2max scores can mean lower energy levels and higher risk of certain diseases. 

4. Locate your fat-burning zones.

  • Your VO2max is also the heart rate at which your body is optimized to burn fat. Our analysis also identify your carbohydrate-burning zones and Calories burned during training.

Workout Smarter. Not Harder.

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

  • Measures your Vo2max, Anaerobic Threshold and precise Target Heart with medical-grade technology
  • Identifies your Unique Target Intensity Zones
  • One of the best indicators for ALL-CAUSE MORTALITY risks (i.e., if your Vo2max is low, you increase your risk of early death)

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, causes exercise-related injuries, and stresses your immune system.

But when you know your Vo2max and target zones, 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.

With DexaFit's VO2 testing readily available, you can know the precise level of intensity that will maximize your progress, using the same technology as the pros.

How is a VO2max test performed?

  1. You will wear a heart rate strap and face mask.
  2. The mask is connected to our medical-grade metabolic cart (same one used by the Mayo Clinic).
  3. You will start walking on the treadmill or bike to warm-up. We will gradually increase your intensity over a period of 10 to 20 minutes.
  4. You receive a consultation to review your results and answer any questions
