Uptivo training tracking

How can Uptivo help you reach your goals?

Uptivo calculates Maximum Heart Rate using an individual’s weight, age and sex. From that, it identifies the number of heart beats per minute an individual needs to reach to hit one of the five different training zones.

The training zones represent heart rate ranges, each of them matching a different range of exercise intensity. By using the Uptivo Belt-D (Heart Rate Monitor), and watching the screen in the gym, you can Keep your Heart Rate under control to do specific workouts and reach your personal goals.

Customers earn Uptivo Performance Points s every time they work out with Uptivo by monitoring their heart rate. The speed with which they generate UPPs depends on the training intensity; the greater the commitment, the more points you receive. But be careful not to overdo it: Uptivo rewards intense training, but not overtraining!

How do I get set up?

  1. Download the Uptivo App
  2. Purchase an Uptivo Belt-D (Heart Rate Monitor) from the gym
  3. Let the team guide you through the set up
  4. Watch your progress!

When can I use my Uptivo Belt-D in the gym?

Whenever you like! There will be specific Red Zone Classes, which will be extremely tough. Boxing Blitz Classes and Boxing Conditioning classes are open good opportunities to meet the orange and red zones, and to really see if your pushing – or cruising!

It all depends on your goals:

  • For fighters – hitting the red zone for optimum fitness is a must for 1-3 times a week. Fuelling and refuelling correctly is very important.
  • For people wanting to build strength. Strength training in the green zone, 3 times a week is fundamental.
  • For those wishing to lose fat, 2 strength sessions, and 2 -3 fat burring sessions (these can be done outside the gym) are essential. It’s worth noting that the higher your heart rate gets, the less oxygen you can take, so you can’t oxidize fat fast enough, and so your body turns to another, more readily available energy source to provide fuel for you — glycogen, also known as carbohydrates. It’s important to understand that consistently training in the red or orange zones and undereating is counterproductive.
