TZ Tip!  Some cardio activities include both an indoor and outdoor option. Encourage clients to switch up their location and get a breath of fresh air while they complete their exercisesocially distanced of course! Afterwards, head to the web app to view a client’s progress on an activity by filtering on indoor or outdoor. 

Training in the zone.

Encouraging clients to train according to heart rate zones is a fantastic way to ensure they’re challenging themselves enough amidst a workout. 

We’ve now made it incredibly easy for a client to view their heart rate zones as they’re training with new colored bars, colored to indicate each heart rate zone.

Training according to heart rate zones, of which includes 5 zones and divided according to the percentage of a client’s maximum heart rate, helps clients recognize when they need to push harder. 

This is perfect for ensuring that clients maintain the right intensity during their workouts and avoid plateauing in their training, especially important as clients naturally grow accustomed to cardio activities the more they train! 

New colored bars to indicate each heart rate zone

Note: We have removed the ability to set heart rate targets based on specific durations of time or distances to go along with clients’ cardio sessions due to low usage. If you’d like to see us add in heart rate zone interval training instead, head over to our idea’s forum to up-vote the idea!

TZ Tip!  Compile more guidance for clients on heart rate zone training by uploading a document and attaching the PDF as a meal plan. If clients’ want a tailored approach to their cardio activity on heart rate zone training, set up a video call appointment and help them with a customized plan! 

Celebrate the little victories.

Keep clients motivated and celebrate their small wins along the way!
