Levergaging the Benefits of Heart Rate Tracking
Heart Tech Plus' founder, Doug's interest in measuring fitness by monitoring heart rate started in 2001.As he trained for multiple endurance rides on both upright and recumbent bicycles, he became convinced of the importance of getting more people, especially school age children, to understand the usefulness of heart rate for measuring physical fitness. Working with physical education teachers nationally and locally, he has gathered information to refine the HTP system, such as including metrics for “moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA)” so that objective measures of school age children’s fitness can be measured.
