At the same time, learn about your own exercise response, get a free VO2max test and a free scan analysing your bone density and body composition. Also find out what these measurements can tell you about your health and fitness.

You are invited to participate if you fall into one of the following categories:

UNTRAINED: No regular exercise at present and for the past three months.

MODERATELY TRAINED RUNNER: Average weekly training distance of 20-30km at present and for the past three months.
