Fat Max Testing

What’s Measured
The Fat Max test determines an intensity range or zone where fat oxidation rates are maximal.
Why Do it?
Training at the correct intensity ensures that the majority of energy is derived from fat. Regular monitoring of your Fat Max will allow you to determine if your ability to use fat as a fuel has increased.
How Does it Work?

  • Height, weight and body fat percentage are measured.
  • 10-minute, self-paced warm up precedes the test.
  • The test begins at a low intensity and increases every three minutes until the athlete reaches their threshold.

Then What?
The data collected during the assessment is analysed and a detailed report of your results is compiled.
