Prior to testing, all clients will be provided with a description of all of the assessments in the selected package, including a disclosure of all the risks involved, and will provide their informed consent to proceed. In doing so, clients will assume the risks inherent in each of the assessments.

Eligibility for maximal VO2 testing will be determined using ACSM’s pre-screening algorithm. Those for whom vigorous exercise is not appropriate will not undergo a maximal exercise test, but a submaximal assessment may be performed as an alternative if acceptable to the client.
