About VO2 Max Test:

By determining the maximum amount of oxygen your body can use by working muscles, VO2 Max Tests provide insight to your overall cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance. VO2 Max Testing is the standard for determining an individual’s physiological makeup as the more oxygen consumed by muscles during physical activity, the more energy that individual is able to produce.

Having a higher VO2 max rate is directly correlated to reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. If your ability to consume and utilize oxygen is low, then it could mean your heart and lungs (cardiopulmonary system) are not working well together, thus putting you at a greater for chronic disease.
