This unique style of evidence-based training allows members to experience training at different heart rate intensities. It also allows the coaches to see who’s keeping up with the class, steer the group in the right direction and provides added safety precaution for coaches and ensure that they are consistently training in a safe and healthy hear-rate zone and yet maximizing their efforts.
“Polar, the pioneer of wearable sports and fitness technology, prides itself in helping users train smarter to achieve their training goals. With the introduction of Polar Club, a unique cloud-based training system that allows TripleFit coachhes to provide real-time guidance during classes as well as manage, track and analyze the quality and quantity of group exercise classes, members get to enjoy a premium training experience and be better motivated with evidence-based results. Moreover, Polar takes your workout sessions further with its Polar Flow online platform and app. When syncing Polar devices like the M600, A360, and M200 with Polar Flow, users will not only be able to view details of their workout, but also receive guidance and suggestions for improvement and keep track of their long-term progress,” said Edwin Ong, Polar Singapore General Manager.
“Blending our hear rate and activity tracking tools with TripleFit’s cutting-edge performance classes will not only help people get active and achieve their fitness goals but also ensure that their fitness experience is personalized and easy to understand, bringing them closer to reaching their goals,” added Edwin.
“TripleFit’s collaboration with Polar is truly one-of-a-kind, and you can see it in action during our EnduroFit classes. Monitoring heart-rates is considered the best way of measuring intensity in cardiotraining with endurance-based components such as HIIT or Bootcamp style training. This provides our coaches and members with science-backed data on how they are performing during the class,” added Henrik.
