How & Why Do We Analyze Your Workouts

What is this about?

After each workout, you'll see a message with a thorough analysis of your performance and the session's outcome. This message will shed light on the data collected on your fitness tracker during the workout.

We'll analyze your heart rate, the time you spent in each of the heart rate zones, total workout intensity, calories you burned, and many other things.

The content of the message depends on the type of exercise you were doing. For example, after the aerobic activities such as jogging, swimming, or cycling, we'll display your average, maximum & minimum speed, distance traveled, elevation gain and loss, wheel revolutions, stroke rate, and more.

Why do I need this analysis if I work out with a personal trainer?

Putting a skilled personal trainer in your corner is the best way to go. But it's pretty hard to spot the difference between an average personal trainer and a great one. And there’s nothing worse than wasting years and money on sessions with a thought-to-be-great trainer who blocks your way to better fitness results.

We can't keep you motivated in your fitness journey or focused on your form to minimize injury like a great trainer does. But we can analyze your data and send you a workout report with the kind of details your trainer might have never heard of.

The workout analysis helps you track your progress and timely alter your program as you move closer toward your goal.

Besides, you don't have to explain to your new trainer what's your fitness level or how long, often, and intensely you exercise — all these things will be nicely lined up in data charts.

The same charts come in handy when you devise a workout plan on your own — they'll show you how your body adapts to the stress of training and how to hit the sweet spot for getting fit and avoid overtraining.

How to get the workout analysis?

Connect Apple Health, Google Fit, or Samsung Health, and make sure you are wearing your fitness tracker during the workouts. Then, we'll be able to get your workout data and send a report to your feed.

Here are some useful articles on how to connect data sources like

Workout analysis is available only for Premium and Plus users.

What about heart rate zones?

Apart from workout analytics, Welltory gives you the heart rate (HR) zones that work best for your current fitness level.

A heart rate zone is a range that defines the limits of training intensities. Depending on your goals, you may spend time training in different zones. The average marathoner, for example, will spend more than half the time training in low-intensity zones, while the average crossfitter will stick to high-intensity ones.

Our zones are self-adjustable to your resting HR. As your fitness improves, the intensity of each zone will increase automatically.

After each workout, you'll see a colorful chart showing how much time you spent in all four HR zones:

Here’s a breakdown of colors that display your intensity level:

  • Red stands for the Peak zone or the Red Line zone. Here you will increase your strength & performance and develop speed, but be careful: even some serious athletes only train in this zone for 1–3 minutes.

  • Yellow is for the Cardio zone. This type of training helps you increase your muscles’ strength and the efficiency of oxygen delivery.

  • Green represents the Fat Burn zone. Here you'll build up your aerobic base and teach your body to use fat as a fuel source.

  • Blue indicates the light zone. The intensity here feels “easy” to “moderate”. All your warm-up, cool-downs, and active recovery sets also fall into this zone. If you regularly work out here for at least 30 minutes, you'll improve overall health and burn some fat, experiencing little to no discomfort.

  • And the White color on the chart depicts the heart rate that wasn't high enough to make it to the blue zone. We won't show it as a separate bar on the right side, but it will be added to your workout's total time.

If you use an Apple Watch model running a watchOS 9 or newer to track your workouts, the Welltory app can show your personalized heart rate zones adjusted in real time. You can read more about it here.
