As a trainer for professional basketball athletes I’ve been using the CardioCoach for about 10 years. There are other pieces of VO2 test equipment out there, but through my research I’ve determined the CardioCoach to be the most reliable and valid. It is also very user friendly; for the most part all you have to do is hit start and it runs itself!
My favorite thing about using the CardioCoach is the amount of data it gives me. It allows me to be creative as a trainer and formulate a plan of action for how I want to train an athlete individually. It gives them confidence that I am directing this personally for them and not just taking a cookbook approach.
As a trainer that works with high caliber athletes, I am looking for anything to give us an advantage over the competition. We’re always looking at the newest technology that can benefit our athletes the most. The KORR CardioCoach is actually something we’ve seen positive results with, so we definitely will continue to utilize it.
