How will the Cardio Screen affect your exercise prescription?

June 23, 2022

Whether you are undertaking the 6-minute walk test or the Astrand cycle test, the purpose is to assess your cardiovascular health and fitness - how well your heart is pumping blood to your body and how well your blood vessels are carrying it. This will let your Health Partners know what an appropriate level of cardiovascular demand is to put you under during classes and 1:1 session; how hard we should be working your heart and lungs to make improvements but keeping you safe at the same time.

With this in mind when you are prescribed classes, your Health Partner will ensure that the class you are recommended will give you the right amount of cardiovascular challenge and may recommend other activities or lifestyle changes to help maintain or improve your cardiovascular health, dependant on your specific goals.
