polar may 2021

As the pandemic forced us to rethink and modify daily activities, a lot of the tools were already there but maybe were not used to their full potential.

When gyms doors are closed leaving many with no motivation or guidance, Polar has many solutions. As coaches across the country were taking their classes outside, it became clear that precise heartrate tracking is the universal and accessible language of training but more so, recovery.

Polar products are designed to work in symbiosis with all its different apps and software. The ability to link training sessions to the rest of your day is major. Educating participants on monitoring their training load will maximise their Tuesday outdoor Zumba class and will keep them motivated by avoiding the dreaded overtraining.     

With Polar Flow, a free app/web service, the Polar user has access to all data and can also grant access to a coach, via Polar Flow for Coach.

Flow for Coach is a remote coaching platform giving easy access to the client’s training data. You’ll be able to create tailored annual training plans, plan individual training sessions and use the powerful analytics to set and reach goals together. All of it in the same words and data that the client is familiar with.
