So how can we quantify, measure, track, and improve physical health, so we can better protect ourselves against disease, and ultimately live longer? It’s a big ask. But Wattbike has the answer:Cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) testing.
WHAT IS CRF?
In simple terms,CRFtells you how effective your body is at transporting oxygen to the places where it’s needed the most. CRF quantifies the functional capacity of an individual and is dependent on the current state of a linked chain of processes in your body; your respiratory, cardiovascular and skeletal muscle systems. CRF is therefore health related - where low CRF is associated with high risks of premature death from all causes, and a high CRF is associated with a reduction in premature death from all causes.
Wattbike is a pioneer of indoor cycling technology, so we created an easy-to-do, accessible, and accurate test that gives each individual their CRF score and predicted VO2max to show them their current health and fitness benchmarks. Individuals are then assigned a personalised, effective training plan that will increase their CRF score at the end of the recommended training block. This isthe Wattbike Health Assessment.
