CooperFit™ is a cardiovascular fitness test that provides an accurate prediction of a patient’s fitness level by measuring their predicted VO2 max or aerobic capacity. Based on 50 years of research from Cooper Clinic, aerobic capacity can be used to provide a patient’s level of fitness in one of six categories:
- Very Poor
CooperFit™ is performed on a treadmill with the patient running or walking for a specified period of time while wearing a heart rate monitor to measure their VO2.
Beyond the Test
Once a patient’s fitness level is determined, the CooperFit™ program provides cardiovascular exercise recommendations specific to that individual with a retest performed at 12 weeks for those who fall in the very poor or poor categories.
