training is fun!
May 2, 2019
Uptivo introduces LEVELS, a new feature that makes workouts even more fun and motivating!
Uptivo levels are based on the World Health Organization recommendations and reward your training continuity, by letting you progress on a scale with 10 steps of difficulty: Rookie, Beginner, Amateur, Passionate, Skillful, Outstanding, Tireless, Formidable, Phenomenal, Titanic.
Training continuity is essential to improve cardiovascular health,
to reduce the risks of injuries and illnesses, to combat stress, anxiety and depression.
WHO recommends at least 150 minutes a week of moderate physical activity or 75 minutes of intense cardio-respiratory activity or an equivalent combination of moderate and intense activity.
How does level progression works?
It takes 2000 UPPs every month to maintain your current level and progress to the next level. 2000 monthly UPPs roughly match to the duration and intensity recommended by the World Health Organization.
How do I earn UPPs?
UPPs are awarded in all Uptivo workouts and are based on your heart rate. The speed at which UPPs are generated depends on the training intensity: the harder you work out, the more points you receive.
Be careful though: Uptivo rewards intensive training, but not over-training! You won’t get any points if your heart rate goes past 94% of your Max HR.
Also remember to train in an Uptivo club as often as possible. You earn about 30% more UPPs than training by yourself.
What if I stop?
Uptivo levels are based on WHO recommendations which reward continuity and perseverance when exercising.
If you don’t keep your monthly UPP amount you might lose levels, in particular:
• If you don’t reach 2000 UPPs in the first month after a level up, you go back to the previous level
• If you don’t reach 2000 UPPs in one of the months necessary for your next level progression, you keep your current level BUT the months already accumulated are not considered and your progression to the next level resets
