If you are an athlete preparing for a marathon or if you are active and simply want to have an accurate measure of your fitness level, the VO2max test might be for you. This test can be performed on a treadmill or a bike. Throughout the test participants wear a face mask to collect breath-by-breath physiological data and electrodes, for an electrocardiogram (ECG), are placed on the chest to ensure participant safety.
