Often, training progress is difficult to compare. For professionals, measuring times, weights lifted or distances with casual athletes is hardly useful. For beginners, the fabulous values of the sports stars are often one thing above all: frustrating motivation killers. Beat81 therefore pursues a different approach to individual training progress, which also makes unequal training partners comparable: the heart rate. The goal of every workout is to stay above 81 percent of the individual's maximum heart rate for at least 15 minutes, because according to Beat81, that's when the body burns calories and fat most effectively. With the Beat81 wristband available for members, you always have your heart rate in view, collect points per minute and can thus measure yourself against like-minded people. In addition to HIIT courses, Beat81 also offers other training programs for muscle building, body shaping or fat burning.
