Cardio Coach (TM)
The more oxygen a person can use during a high-level exercise, the more energy a person can produce. Cardio Coach™, or maximal oxygen consumption, refers to the maximum amount of oxygen that an individual can utilize during intense or maximal exercise. The Cardio Coach™ Test is the gold standard for determining cardiorespiratory fitness, as stated by many institutions such as the University of Virginia School of Medicine and John Hopkins Cardiology. The muscles need oxygen for prolonged aerobic exercise, and the heart must pump adequate amounts of blood through the circulation to meet the demands of aerobic exercise.
