What is a FatMax Test?

The FatMax test identifies the intensity level at which you maximise fat burning during exercise. This test is valuable for those seeking to optimise their training and nutrition strategies for weight loss and endurance performance.

The test helps identify the specific heart rate or intensity level at which fat bruning is at its highest, this can lead to workouts that will optimise fat burn results and help with weight loss.

Why take a FatMax Test

  • Optimise Fat Burning: Identifying the intensity at which the body burns the most fat can be useful for individuals aiming for weight loss or improved body composition.
  • Endurance Training: Athletes and fitness enthusiasts can use FatMax data to tailor their training zones, optimising endurance performance while preserving glycogen stores.
  • Personalised Exercise Plans: FatMax testing allows for the development of personalised exercise plans, ensuring that you train in the most efficient zone for your specific goals.

What happens during the test?

The test is performed on a treadmill, you will be asked to walk or jog slowly whilst wearing a face mask attached to our monitoring system. The system will measure both your respiritory gases (oxygen and carbon dioxide) and your heart rate, in order to determine the point at which fat burning peaks.
