Beep Test is an application designed to test your fitness. It is also known as the Bleep Test, Yo-Yo Test, Multi-Stage Fitness Test, Pacer Test, or Shuttle Run Test. Beep Test gives you a Beep Test timer for your iPhone™ and iPod® touch.
The application may be used to time and track your tests. It will also provide values for your VO2 max, MET, and also a general assessment based upon the user's age and gender. The beep test is a fantastic way to measure your fitness and is used by trainers, coaches, police departments, defence forces, and many others.
The beep test involves the runner running between two markers 20 meters apart. The runner must complete each 20 meter run before the beep sounds. The starting speed is 8.5 km/h and will increase by 0.5 km/h each level. A single beep test consists of 21 levels. Each level is a series of shuttles, that is 20 meter runs. At the completion of each level, approximately every minute, the required speed will increase and the runner must run faster. If the runner can not reach the end of the shuttle before the beep for 3 consecutive shuttles the test is ended.
