At betaOfitness, everything we do is science based and proven to get you results and help achieve your fitness goals. We stepped up our game by measuring your rate of perceived exertion is by monitoring your exercising heartrate. In. Real. Time.
Ever wondered if your training is as efficient as you’d like it to be? Reaching your workout targets has never been this easy: when you see the heart rate zone you should be aiming at and get immediate guidance from the instructor all along the way, you know you’re on track.
The club members wear their own H7 heart rate sensor or borrow/buy one from the club.
They can sign in using their Polar Flow username and password – it’s quick and easy to do on their own.
Everyone joining the class gets a free Polar Flow web service account where they can follow their progress.
The club members wearing an H7 see their live heart rate on screen. They will learn about the five heart rate zones and how important it is to exercise at different heart rate intensities – it’s the best way to improve.
Once everyone’s in the same zone, it’s Zone Time! And time for trophies, which appear on screen as animated rewards. Seeing their achievement makes the whole group strive harder.
The instructor tells the group which zone they should be aiming at and why. They can see who’s keeping up with them and steer the group to the right direction.
At the end of the class, the group sees a summary of how they did: Who’s the zone master? Or the cool-down champion? Did you find your zone mate?
The training session is also stored on Polar Flow, where members can have a closer look at what they’ve accomplished and how they’re progressing.
Happy, healthy, hooked

Training Philosophy: I have played soccer for over 15 years and have always been around athletics. The benefits of being physically active and in optimal physical health improves your life in ways you would have never thought possible. With today’s generation being less and less active it’s important to take care of the most important thing in the world: your self. The hardest part of going to the gym is actually going to the gym. Make an effort to improve your health today and change the course of life!
Experience: As an athletic training undergraduate student, I was able to maintain a competitive grade point average, 3.64, in a rigorous science based program, while excelling throughout my clinical experiences and working 25 hours part time. Having the opportunity to work with a wide, diverse range of athletes and the physically active population has given me an in depth understanding of athletic training in various settings.
Now as a member of Orthopaedics Plus team as a physical therapy aide, I work with all different types of age groups taking patients through the correct way to perform exercises. In conjunction with a personal training studio next door, I have access to doctors of physical therapy, certified strength and conditioning specialists, nutrition specialists, and athletic trainers.
