KINEMATIC TESTING

Body: 

Kinematics testing determines the way the body moves. Input from this testing has been essential when designing cardio equipment like cross-trainers that have an elliptical path that mimics natural running.

Biomechanics VO2 Test

Title: 
VO2 TESTING

Body: 

VO2 testing measures how much oxygen exercisers metabolize, which can be converted into calorie burn. Extensive data across a wide variety of exercisers results in “calories burned” displays on Life Fitness equipment that are extremely accurate.
