Tony Heinz, director, Standardized Fort Carson Army Wellness Center, inputs information for Capt. Sarah Reynolds, commander, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 2nd Battalion (General Support), 4th Aviation Regiment, 4th Combat Aviation Brigade, 4th Infantry Division, so she can begin the VO2 Max test at the Standardized Fort Carson AWC, Jan. 11, 2013, in preparation for the VO2 Max competition in February. The competition measures a soldier’s fitness through the use of Fitmate Pro, machine able to measure oxygen consumption. “We believe the VO2 is scientifically based. It measures oxygen consumption, which is the key ingredient for cardio respiratory fitness; how much your lungs and heart are able to absorb during cardio respiratory fitness,” said Heinz
