Beep Test Score Calculator

> for more information, see the Beep Test Home

To calculate your predicted VO2max from your 20 meter shuttle run test result, enter your level and number of shuttles for that level in the boxes below, and then click the "calculate" button. For a listing of the number of shuttles for each level, go here.

For example, if you scored 8-5 on the beep test, you would enter 8 in the first box, and 5 in the second.

Enter your Age* :
Sex : Male Female

Enter your level (e.g., 8):
Enter your number of shuttles (e.g., 5):

* rating is only based on ages > 17 years

But what does this mean?


VO2max = 31.025 + (3.238 × velocity) - (3.248 × age ) + (0.1536 × age × velocity)
