Knowing your maximal aerobic capacity, called your “VO2 max” is very helpful for tracking fitness levels over time, and choosing workouts that are the right intensity to meet your goals. You exercise on a treadmill or stationary cycle at progressively higher intensity until you reach your maximum physical effort. UF Health Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Institute can help you fine tune exercise programs, give guidance on ways to increase fitness or your submaximal fitness zones for better performance or better health. We can also measure your blood lactate for identification of the training
intensity when your body shifts to using more carbohydrates for energy than fats. Come learn about your maximal performance!
