Wanna shed those extra pounds, get really ripped or break your personal record at your next race? Interval training has long been a training strategy of elite athletes. And it’s a smart choice for us mere mortals too. Interval training refers to varying the intensity of your exertion throughout your workout. The benefits abound. According to the Mayo Clinic you’ll burn more calories, improve your aerobic capacity and reduce boredom too.
The latest software release from MOTOACTV allows you to customize your interval plan like never before: pace, time, distance, heart rate – all can be preset. And check this out: you can now define your targets for each stage of any activity including running, walking, cycling and more. You can even build an interval plan that takes you from one activity to another – bike, walk, run, weight lift – whatever you heart desires.
Simply put, you can set a moderate warm up pace for the first 15 minutes, kick it into high gear for the next 30 minutes, and then set the pace for a 10 minute cool down. And if that’s not enough, the built-in audio coach will tell when to shift into the next phase and update you on your achievements like – calories burned, distanced covered, heart rate and more! Pretty cool, huh?
Shake up your workout routine and give interval training a try with MOTOACTV. You’ll feel the difference and see it too.
