The most advanced Apple Watch app, Selfloops Spark
Spark is the only application for Apple Watch that supports the Group Fitness heart rate tracking service with users having to wear just the Apple Watch to join a class (no need for additional accessories or heart rate monitors.)
The Selfloops Spark Apple Watch app can connect to rowers, treadmills and bikes using the FTMS Bluetooth protocol. It is the only app that can do this tracking.
You can also stream your heart rate data over the Internet with our Selfloops Streams service for live classes using your Apple Watch.
Create an unlimited number of plans and sell them through the Selfloops Store. You’ll earn additional income and grow your list of potential athletes.
It is easy
The Selfloops platform offers an advanced calendar in which you can easily create training plans. To create a plan you just drag and drop new workouts. It is also possible to create libraries of training plans and reuse part of those libraries to create new plans.
A platform for coaches
Through the Selfloops website a coach can create the training plans, compare the assigned workouts with the actual workouts and provide the necessary feedback to the athletes.
Athletes can connect to 3rd party services
The Selfloops website is integrated with 3rd party applications and services. This means it provides a place where the athletes and coaches can sync and analyse data and have all the information in a single integrated view.
We have just updated the Fitness & Freshness graph with the ability to choose a custom date range. This new feature will allow coaches and athletes to monitor an athlete’s form during a longer period of time, for example, during the entire season, with dates you are free to choose.
The Fitness & Freshness graph is used to monitor an athlete form and physical condition. The input data to the graph is biker power and heart rate data. The training load is measured by the Training Load metric when used with bike power data and by the TRIMP score when the data come from heart rate monitors.
The Training Load and the TRIMP score are metrics that summarise and provide a stress score coming from training. These metrics measure the volume of a certain workout by taking into account the time spent and the bike power and heart rate data.
For athletes, overtraining is a problem as much as not training enough. To improve sports performance we need to stress our body and push our limits. At the same time, too much stress risks to break ourselves with injuries and stress related issues.
A good coach is able to administer and monitor the workout load of the activities in order to push the athletes to better results and outcome. This work requires a delicate act of balance between stress and rest. The Fitness & Freshness graph is one of the tools that allows coaches and athletes to monitor their training load and balance.
