Although RMR/Vo2 testing is not required to follow heart-rate based training, it is by far the most accurate way to determine your training zones as well as where you need to train during your workout. You can estimate your values by finding out your max heart rate (roughly 220 minus your age) and then use the following percentages to determine your own training zones. The wahoo fitness app delivers an amazingly detailed performance report directly to your phone after each workout. However, to get the results, you must be wearing a compatabile ant+/ble heartrate monitor and cadence sensor, both of which are for sale in our store. These devices will work with your phone in and out of the studio, for any workout, anywhere!

Zone 1

Zone 1:Very Light

50% - 60% of your maximum heart rate

Training in this zone encourages the flow of blood, which is optimal for maintaining a healthy heart and recovering after a difficult workout.

Zone 2

Zone 2:Light

60% - 70% of your maximum heart rate

Training in Zone 2 enhances endurance and the efficiency with which you use fat and carbohydrates as fuel.

Zone 3

Zone 3:Moderate

70% - 80% of your maximum heart rate

Zone 3 training helps to delay fatigue caused by lactic acid. This is the last aerobic zone before crossing the anaerobic threshold. Training in this zone is challenging but sustainable for most athletes.

Zone 4

Zone 4:Hard

80% - 90% of your maximum heart rate

This is an anaerobic zone which by definition implies the absence of oxygen resulting in a negligible amount of fat metabolism. Therefore, our bodies are primarily using carbohydrates as a fuel source. Athletes in Zone 4 may mutter only a few words at a time.

Zone 5

Zone 5:Maximum

90% - 100% of your maximum heart rate

This is the top of the heart rate chain and leaves you gasping for air after only 10 to 20 seconds of work. This is also known as the anaerobic threshold - going to this zone for short bursts is truly where cardiovascular improvement is made.
