*** The easiest and quickest way for ANYONE to measure their health and fitness. You don't need to be an athlete to complete the step test. ***

The 3 Minute Step Test or Queens College Step test is one of many variations of step test procedures, used to determine aerobic fitness.

The test is an easy to administer sub-maximal test of cardiovascular endurance and this app does all the work for you so you can concentrate on your test.

*** Procedure of 3 Minute Step Test ***

1.) The athlete steps up and down on the platform at a rate of 22 steps per minute for females and at 24 steps per minute for males. Pace is set by the internal metronome inside the app. The subjects are to step using a four-step cadence, 'up-up-down-down' for 3 minutes.

2.) The athlete stops immediately on completion of the test, where they are guided through the counting of their heart rate for 15 seconds.

3.) The user then enters their HR and this information is then used to determine the level of aerobic fitness and a predicted V02max. The theory is that the lower your heart rate on completion of activity, the higher your aerobic fitness base.

No metronome

This app is useless. It doesn't provide the beat for the client to set their step cadence. What's the point? I can time 3 minutes myself. I feel like an idiot for buying this.

Needs extra equipment

This app is pretty much a timer and a metronome. In order to perform this test you need a step and a way to measure your heart rate. If you don't have those you won't be able to use this app.

No metronome

This app is useless. I paid $4.99 for nothing!
