The Training Zones are related to the workout intensity, each zone representing a different heart-rate range (percentage of your HRmax). Each zone influences the human metabolism in a different way, producing specific body changes and allowing your members to target their training to their fitness goals.

Heart-Rate Training Zones

What are my personal heart rate zones?

In order to setup heart-rate ranges and thresholds for each training zone, Uptivo defines a HRmax value (maximum heart-rate) for each athlete by using their date of birth (age) as specified by the Tanaka formula.

Tanaka: 208 – 0,7 x age in years

Trainers can easily adjust each members’ HRmax to properly reflect their current fitness level and conditioning, or to account for recovery training from cardiovascular conditions and medical therapies that might temporarily affect the heart capacity.
