CoachMePlus | Q&A with Firstbeat’s Head of Sports Veli-Pekka Kurunmäki

Nov 15 2016 in News

In a recent interview with CoachMePlus, Firstbeat’s Head of Sports Veli-Pekka Kurunmäki discussed how top coaches and elite sports teams are incorporating information derived from heart monitoring into their training programs. Topics discussed include heart rate variability and how Firstbeat’s cutting-edge analytics transform it into insights and  competitive advantages on the field and in the training room.

“Heart monitoring has a lot more to offer than just beats per minute and target zones. For example, a lot of people don’t realize that the time between consecutive heartbeats is constantly changing, and coded into those changes are respiration and lots of other information about how the body is performing and recovering. At Firstbeat, we develop and apply the smart analytics necessary to give coaches, trainers and athletes access to all the information the heart has to offer.”
