Each person has optimal training zones. Exercise equipment and charts that tell you target heart rates are actually just averages based on age and weight. The equipment we use measures your precise target heart rate based on anaerobic threshold, then calculates your unique cardio intensity zones. These zones give you the precise heart rates necessary to optimise each level of exercise and maximise your results.
Knowing your unique intensity zones, you’ll work out smarter, not harder!
Frequently we push ourselves thinking, “no pain, no gain.” The truth is, pushing beyond one’s optimal training zone leads to fatigue and discomfort. It will also cause increased soreness after the workout and may contribute to exercise related injury. When you know your zones and use them for training, cardiovascular exercise is comfortable. Even a beginner can go the distance!
VO2 testing reveals the exercise level that will optimise a person’s ability to burn fat. The term “aerobic exercise” has been commonly used in relation to burning fat. But without VO2 testing, people 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 fat you burn.
