Fitness Level offers an accurate assessment of users fitness Sports and analytics company Firstbeat has upgraded its Lifestyle Assessment coaching tool to include a new feature that measures users overall fitness.
Called Fitness Level, the feature is a fitness test that is designed to offer an accurate assessment of the user's fitness based on 30-minutes of moderately-paced walking.
It features a unique algorithm that monitors the relationship between the walking speed and heart rate as well as measures oxygen intake versus pace.
It can also be used as a motivational tool, as it tracks users progress, showing them the impact simple exercises and everyday routines can have on their fitness and therefore encouraging them to increase their physical activity.
In addition, it can be used by trainers to keep track of their client's progress and adapt and personalise fitness programmes.
