    V02Testing Triple Sports Presents: V02 Max Testing
    Know Your Fitness!

    Triple Sports knows you want to get the most out of your training and we're here to help.

    We have two solid days of V02 Max testing lined up for you on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 15 and 16 - with a 60-90 minute follow-up lecture at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 17. The testing is by well-known fitness expert Richard Diaz, of Los Angeles-based Diaz Human Performance. For you runners or cyclists out there, a single test (run or bike) will run you $149 For you triathletes, a dual test (run and bike) is $239

    So now your question is: What exactly is V02 Max and why should I care what mine is? Simply put, V02 Max is a scientific measure of your body's ability to transfer energy aerobically. V02 Max is recognized as the single most important measure of one's fitness and is used to maximize performance for elite and Olympic athletes.

    A V02 Max test measures your oxygen consumption, heart rate and carbon dioxide emission as resistance on the bike or treadmill is incrementally increased. There is a point when your oxygen consumption no longer increases to meet the increasing workload. The maximum oxygen consumption achieved is considered V02 Max.

    A V02 test will tell you exactly how your body responds to exercise. Knowing this takes away the guesswork in your training. You'll know at what heart rate you should be working to burn fat and obtain maximum results. Knowing your V02 Max will help you reach your goals, whether it's faster race times, weight loss or greater cardiovascular fitness.

    Swimmers It's Too Hot!
    Stay fit and beat the heat

    No getting around it, it's hot. So how to maintain your exercise regime when the mercury has long ago passed 100? Most of you know what to do - get out early and stay hydrated - but a little reminder never hurts.

    Heat doesn't have to be dangerous, but it can be. To stay safe while staying fit, make sure you drink plenty of fluids. For those of you exercising 60 minutes or more, be sure to eat some calories and replace your electrolytes - and don't wait until after your long run or ride to do it. Nuun, a handy new hydration product out of Seattle, is a great way to get those valuable electrolytes back in your system without loading up on sugar and other unnecessary ingredients.

    It's not always easy to get out the door by 5 or 6 a.m., but your body will thank you if you do. Beating the heat is a great way to continue your fitness routine without overly taxing your body. Be sure to wear sunscreen - no matter what time of day.

    Finally, use common sense. If you choose to go running at 3 p.m., make sure you give your body time to acclimate to the extreme heat. Stay hydrated and don't overexert yourself.
