This way we are confident that what is then programmed to your electronic computers / watches
from the assessment is a true and accurate reading of your REAL as opposed to THEORETICAL Heart Rate Threshold. This assessment will provide you with your heart rate zones, which will give you a better gauge at your current fitness levels and assist in your training or fitness regime.
With the advent of GPS enabled devices, smartphone and watches – there are many people now starting to train with proper records. Unfortunately the method of Heart Rate zones created by these devices based purely on age is defunct and inaccurate and can be downright dangerous.
Understand your HR zone and how to train with it is so important in ways which cannot be replaced. Regrettably many coaches in many sports choose to ignore this method of training simply because they are themselves untrained or ignorant of the methodology and techniques to do so.
A proper HR zone established over time, fitness and designed with techniques can ensure that an athlete functions within the current metabolic rate and work between aerobic and anaerobic when needed.
This is an assessment not just for all sports people and athletes but anyone who wishes to train effectively and improve their fitness.
