Get the most out of each workout by incorporating heart rate data into your training. Workout Trainer PRO+ members now have even more heart rate insights to help them optimize their athletic performance.
Compare & Analyze Heart Rate
This new feature helps members and trainers alike review their performance, and their clients’ performance, against past workouts. This will help measure progress over time, all the way down to the exercise level.
More specifically, you can select two different workouts you’ve completed and compare key metrics such as your overall BPM and HR zones, as well as exercise-specific BPM and HR zones. Get in the fat-burning zone when embarking on a new weight loss journey, or train to lower your resting heart rate during rest periods to progress in your athletic endeavors. Whatever your personal goal may be, monitoring your heart rate whilst exercising will help you see and feel the results faster.
Insight at this level can help inform you that you may want to tweak your workout to bump up the intensity as you make progress, perhaps adjusting weights or reps, and maybe swapping in a more challenging (or easier) version of an exercise.
We establish your HR Zones based on your Max Heart Rate, which is calculated based on your weight and heart rate over the course of each workout. The weight we use is the one you have added to Workout Trainer or shared through a health aggregator app like Apple Health, Google Fit, and Samsung Health.
Warm Up = 0-59% of HR Max
Fat Burn = 60-69% of HR Max
Vigorous = 70-79% of HR Max
VO2 Max is 80-100% of HR Max
You may want to target certain zones as you repeat workouts to hit your performance targets.
