Time commitment: 3 visits to the lab on 3 different days separated by at least 72 hours
• Day 1 (~2-3h): Familiarization and screening
• Day 2 and 3 (~1-2h each): Experimental exercise testing Lab
Location: All testing will take place at the Allan McGavin Sports Medicine Centre at UBC.
Benefits: You will receive an objective evaluation of your aerobic fitness (i.e., maximal oxygen consumption – VO2max) as well as $100 upon completion of the study.
