Training Status

A groundbreaking approach to training effectiveness evaluation.

What is it?

Training Status delivers the big picture view to reveal how your training is really going. Are you training to improve your fitness, working hard enough to make a difference, or doing more harm than good? Training Status is your guide to determining the overall effectiveness of your training and recovery and finding the approach that works best for you.

Training Status enables you to instantly determine whether your efforts are productive or unproductive are producing states of detraining, recovery, maintaining, peaking, and receive notification of overreaching. Comparing these findings with your expectations gives you the power to fine tune your plans in the long run to achieve your goals.

Key Benefits:

  • Real data for better decisions
  • Feedback about training effectiveness
  • Determine whether your race preparation is working

Training Status analyzes the patterns in your VO2max and Training Load history to provide interpretation of your current state of training.

How does it work?

To provide this insight, Firstbeat analyzes multiple dimensions of your training and physiology. These are interpreted and assembled to produce a single easily understood training indicator. Changes in your VO2max fitness level are examined and interpreted in light of your current training loads and historical training patterns to reveal your current Training Status.

Because your current training load and training history are essential to the accuracy and usefulness of this feature, you will need to train regularly with your device for a few weeks before your Training Status is calculated and reported. Once enough data is available for a valid assessment, your current Training Status will be revealed and will automatically update as new training activities are recorded.
