VO2 Max is the ULTIMATE indicator of cardiovascular fitness. In the past, VO testing has only been available at hospitals and universities. But now Dexa Body brings this technology to you!
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 CardioCoach measures your precise target heart rate based on anaerobic threshold, then calculates your unique Target Intensity Zones. These Zones give you the precise heart rates neces- sary to optimize each level of exercise and maximize your results. With Target 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!
VO testing reveals the exercise level that will optimize a person’s ability to burn fat. The term “aerobic exercise” has been commonly used in relation to burning fat. But without VO 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 VO testing readily available, you can know the precise level of intensity that will truly maximize the amount of fat you burn.
