Bag work, running, stairmaster....they all work if you are motivated to do them. If you do a search, there are on line resources to evaluate your cardio fitness based on your resting heart rate. VO2 Max testing would be fun (HA!) but hard to get access to without shelling out money to trainers or doctors.
