Physical exercises stimulates your whole body. You get better blood flow, you are able to handle a higher working pressure, can easier resist the intake of calories, and in addition, you burn calories during a training session. In the last years, heart rate training has become a more and more important ingredient in many exercisers and athletics’ workout. The heart rate is a fairly accurate indicator of the intensity of the workout and most modern training methods in cardio training involves specific goals set by the individual's heart rate.

History of iQniter

iQniter is a Danish company that was founded in 2011 by the owners of FitPartner and Vivifit. Vivifit was founded as a software company and has developed bespoke software as a cloud based solution ever since. In 2011 Vivifit searched the market for the right way to sell the products to the end user. Jørgen A. Nielsen an experienced IT professional innovation manger founded Vivifit and the ownership was extended with Freddie Frydkjær, an experienced IT developer.

The foundation for iQniter was now in place and the goal to provide a cardio training solution worldwide could begin. This exclusive concept uses the Suunto heart rate belts which communicates the data from individuals whilst integrating with a social training page where users can plan, keep track and share their activity with their friends and coaches.

Training Effect

Training Effect (TE) is an even more accurate and versatile measure of exertion than your heart rate. It combines information provided by your heart rate, heart rate variation, and respiratory rate, and tells you the level of exertion and effectiveness of your training.
 
IQniter’s advanced heart rate measurement reliably analyzes your level of exertion and displays it as a Training Effect value on a scale of one to five. When interpreting its readings, the devices consider your heart rate, heart rate variation, and respiration rate.
 
The iQniter Training Report display the Training Effect as a single, easy-to-read value. The effect of each workout on your aerobic fitness can be evaluated by the Training Effect value from the description to the left.

To give you more accurate real time information, the values shown by the iQniter Training Report are given an additional digit, i.e. Training Effect 2 in the table below represents everything between TE 2.0 and 2.9.
 
Training Effect is created through exertion and rest
Training Effect increases faster with training intensity than with training duration. A long-duration, low-intensity workout will not necessarily result in a high Training Effect, while even a short, high-intensity workout may produce a high value.
It is important to note that the numerical Training Effect values do not mean that a workout with a lower numerical value is somehow worse or less significant than a workout with a high value. Both are needed in balanced training. In fact, Training Effects 1 and 2 are the most important ones for endurance. Low-intensity training builds a foundation on which you can safely build workouts with a higher Training Effect. Without a good foundation, high-intensity training will build a wobbly tower that can topple due to too high a load – followed by overstress and decreased performance.
 
It should also be remembered that stress and Training Effect go hand in hand. The stress your body is subjected to during exercise will only be transformed into a Training Effect through rest and recuperation.
