FitMetrix. What Does It All Mean?

By March 30, 2021No Comments2 min read

At Power Hour we use a heart rate monitoring system called FitMetrix during our classes. Clients wear a heart rate monitor and get real-time data on their workouts.

Sometimes all the information and icons can be confusing, so here’s a breakdown of what it all means:

Trophy Icon – Effort Points earned based on the time a member spends in each heart rate zone

Heart Rate Zones:

Zone 1: Very Light 50-60% of your maximum heart rate

Encourages the flow of blood, which is optimal for maintaining a healthy heart and recovering after a difficult workout

Zone 2: Light 60-70% of your maximum heart rate

Enhances endurance and the efficiency with which you use fat and carbohydrates as fuel

Zone 3: 70-80% of your maximum heart rate

Helps to delay fatigue caused by lactic acid. Made up of moderate exercise, which helps to improve aerobic fitness

Zone 4: 80-90% of your maximum heart rate

Should be done in short bouts. Improves maximum performance capacity 

Zone 5: 90-100% of your maximum heart rate

Should be done in short bouts. Assist with top-end speed development and performance

Heart Icon – Current heart rate

Flame Icon – Calories burned

Percentage Icon – Percentage of max heart rate. Max heart rate is 220 minus age.
