SelfLoops Group Fitness
With the SelfLoops Group Fitness solution you can monitor indoor sessions and cardio workouts. This service is successfully used around the world by personal trainers, gyms and in training events.
Now we have created the SelfLoops Group Power, to monitor bike power sensors in indoor group sessions. For people that are serious about performance!
You can only improve what you measure
We are constantly improving our platform. We have added metrics to track your performance and fitness form. Coaches can manage the team calendar, monitor the athletes performance, create training plans, write race reports. Only 45€/year! Sign up at our website (1 month free trial).
Stream your trainings in real-time, with the SelfLoops telemetry. It can be used both indoor and outdoor. And you can stream single or group of athletes at the same time. Make your trainings and events more entertaining. Measure your aerodynamics. Read more about it at our website.
Today we are announcing the Fitness & Freshness graph. The graph allows you to manage your trainings to reach your perfect level of form, not too overtrained and not too undertrained.
To be able to see the graph, you need to train with a bike power meter or just a heart rate monitor. This is an advanced feature available to all our premium members.
The Selfloops Android application has a new look, a better looking design with improved usability. In the new version is also possible to analyze the activities directly from the application. And if you want the full analysis, just log to the website.
The Selfloops Group Fitness application allows real-time group monitoring of heart rate sensors and cardio training . The information appears in the smartphone/tablet display, but it can be projected in a external larger screen if the device has a video output port (e.g. a HDMI port as some Android tablets)
The scope of the app is to make people aware of their fitness performance and to train more effectively when real-time intensity feedback is given. Furthermore, with this app coaches can monitor their class and train people according to their fitness intensity zones.
The number of contemporaneous heart rate sensors supported theoretically could go up to 50 as this is the limit of the ANT+™ standard (the position and the processing power of the receiver may negatively affect this number).
The ANT+ standard is used by Garmin and many others. Therefore, to use the application, your smart phone or tablet must support ANT+. If your smartphone does not natively support ANT+, you can add external accessories to enable it, e.g. our ANT+ accessory (for Android 2.3.4 and higher) or the Garmin USB ANT stick with a USB OTG cable (for Android 3.0 and higher).
HOW IT WORKS
At the start of the session the application will gather data from sensors in proximity.
If the user is registered, a square will pop-up with her name, otherwise she will appear as an anonymous user. You can edit the anonymous user and register her for a future automatic identification. You can also manually register users, if you know the heart rate monitor device number.
Only users with heart rate monitors in proximity will be shown during a session.
In Android devices that natively support ANT+ you have to DISABLE the WiFi for this application to work. The two radio protocols share the same antenna in these devices and ANT+ cannot work continuously.
