New training system uses IoT to motivate and track exercise intensity levels
A common notion is to walk 10,000 steps a day to improve ones’ physical fitness, so pedometers have been a popular wearable health device from before the days of fitness trackers and smartphones. However, simply walking 10,000 steps does not improve physical fitness or improve lifestyle-related illnesses. The international standard of improving physical fitness is to measure the maximum oxygen intake and to have the individual work at more than 60% of that. Interval training uses an individuals’ peak aerobic capacity to efficiently and effectively improve physical fitness.
