“ActivePulse lets every iFit client personalize their treadmill workouts without complicated calculations and constant manual adjustments,” said Mark Watson, president of iFit. “ActivePulse provides a workout that not only caters to one member; It is assigned to that member on the basis of how their heart rate is during the workout. “

Daily variables such as hydration, sleep, and stress have a direct effect on heart rate, so the effectiveness of a given workout can vary from one day to the next depending on heart rate performance. iFit ActivePulse scales and scales the intensity of any iFit program to optimize it based on their heart rate at the time – even with advanced algorithms gradually “learning” their unique behavior patterns over time. to include.

Has been done. With various heart rate zones tailored to fitness goals such as building endurance and promoting recovery, heart rate training is widely accepted as the smartest way to achieve consistent and measurable progress toward specific fitness goals goes.
