Gold Standard Measure of Aerobic Fitness

At UPANDRUNNING Dubai our VO2 max service allows you to determine the maximum amount of oxygen your body can use during physical activity.

This gold standard measure of aerobic fitness will enable you to monitor the effectiveness of your training regime and assist you in future planning and program development.

The Process

The test will be performed on our specialised treadmill or bike trainer (You may use your own bike, if not we have one available). You will wear a heart rate monitor and a mask with an analyzer attached to measure your oxygen consumption.

 

The intensity will increase at regular intervals by speed or incline in order to raise both oxygen demand and heart rate. The test will last anywhere from four to thirty minutes, which is entirely up to your maximal level of fitness.

 

We encourage you to keep going until you can’t go any further. Once complete, you will cool down, hop off the treadmill or bike and go through your results. Here you will receive a personalised printout of your fitness profile, including your VO2 max score, your maximum heart rate, your aerobic and anaerobic thresholds, and four tailored training zones.

 

This comprehensive analysis of your personalized fitness level, along with recommendations from our sport science and human performance specialist, will help take your training and performance to the next level.

Once booked, we want to ensure you achieve the most reliable results. Therefore, you will need to adhere to certain criteria:

 

  • 24 hours before testing: no alcohol, caffeine or excessive exercise.
  • Within 2 hours: no food, tea, coffee or cigarettes – water is okay.
  • Prior to testing: complete our pre-exercise questionnaire.

TESTIMONIALS

"Very quickly after seeing Jen my life was changed, not only because I felt physically better, but because she is someone who takes care of the problem, studies the case and provides clear explanations."

MARTA NICOLETTA
GRATEFUL TO JENNIFER RATH

"Such a major achievement to be able to do these swims again, and the same with my spinning. Without the constant support of UPANDRUNNING these activities would not be possible."

MARIA
THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT

"My son recently hit his head while playing rugby. He rested but a couple of days later he developed a headache. After testing at UPANDRUNNING he had suffered a minor concussion. UAR were extremely professional and knew exactly what to do."
