Tony Heinz, director, Standardized Fort Carson Army Wellness Center, attaches the breathing cord to 1st Lt. Aaron Berg, battalion medical officer/executive officer, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 1st Battalion, 68th Armor Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, so the Fitmate Pro can measure his cardio respiration when he starts the VO2 Max test at the Standardized Fort Carson AWC, Jan. 11, 2013, in preparation for the VO2 Max competition in February. VO2 Max is the scientific term used for cardio respiratory fitness, and is the maximum capacity to transport and use oxygen in the body. “I’m in the competition to see where I rank amongst other soldiers, and to challenge myself,” said Berg. “It gives you a baseline approach to see where you need to improve.” (U.S. Army photo by Spc.
