Introduction Cardiorespiratory endurance is the ability to perform dynamic exercise involving large muscle groups at moderate-to-high intensity for prolonged periods. In this lab, we will be assessing cardiorespiratory fitness which is very important when working with any individual in the exercise and fitness profession. We will perform the step test and the YMCA bike test to assess cardiorespiratory fitness. This will reflect the capacity of the heart, lungs, and blood to transport oxygen to the working muscles. A specific piece of information that can be obtained from cardiorespiratory fitness testing is the maximum oxygen uptake (VO 2 max). Information that can be gained from the test is the client’s heart rate and blood pressure at a certain workload. This information can be used to assess which testing protocol to use for the client. Results In the group of five members, four were female and one was male. The mean age of the group is 20.2 years. The height of the members ranged from 5’2 to 5’10. The weight ranged from 117 to 190 pounds.
