Firstbeat, a leading provider of physiological analytics for sports and wellbeing, announced a new feature in its Lifestyle Assessment called Fitness Level that makes measuring your fitness a walk in the park. Firstbeat will be exhibiting at our WT | Wearable Technologies Show MEDICA 2018.

Traditionally, fitness testing requires maximal effort in laboratory conditions. Now, people of all levels – from gym regulars to those who struggle to exercise regularly can get an accurate estimate of their fitness level as part of the three-day Firstbeat Lifestyle Assessment measurement. All you need to do is walk for 30 minutes at a moderate-brisk pace, says a press release.

Why is it Important to Know Your Fitness Level?

Knowing your Fitness Level can benefit everyone. Good fitness is an essential component of comprehensive well-being. Improved performance, functional capacity, general health, longevity, recovery, and reduced health care costs are just some of the benefits associated with even subtle improvements in fitness. Plus, fitter people have also been shown to experience less stress.

Bad Fitness Doesn’t Mean it’s the End

It’s never too late to improve your fitness, even if your fitness result isn’t what you hoped for. In fact, those with poor fitness can see the quickest results from the smallest increase in exercise. Results have shown that, with three months’ training, it is possible to increase fitness by up to 20 percent.

Because Fitness Level lets you track your progress, it not only opens your eyes to your current situation but inspires you towards a more active and healthier lifestyle.
