VO2 MAX Testing & Spinscan ® Evaluation
The Centre is the only facility, open to the public, in KwaZulu- Natal to offer VO2 Max testing. There is currently an increasing awareness of the importance and benefit of exercise to the general population. This has led to rising popularity of sports such as cycling, in particular off- road cycling, triathlon and running. As the interest in these sports increases so has the need for further information as well as scientific based testing and advice for these athletes.
The test includes VO2 max, lactate turnpoint, respiratory compensation point, heart rate training zones, peak power, and Spinscan (torque through pedal stroke and maximum torque angle).
This is all followed up with a comprehensive report of approximately 8 pages outlining results and their interpretation for integration in a training programme.
