The adaptive and personalized Polar STAR Training Program helps you to reach your training targets. The training program gives you the optimal intensity, calorie, and time targets for your training and allows you to decide what kind of exercise you want to do and when.
The Polar STAR Training Program is based on your fitness level, activity level, training goal and user information (weight, height, age and sex).
Your training computer gives feedback on your performance after each training session and once a week. By analyzing your weekly training results and changing fitness level, the training computer adapts to your training habits and gives you training guidance for the following week.
When you create Polar STAR Training Program choose your training target. Your choice is
- Improve fitness if your target is to improve your current cardiovascular fitness level and you are able to train regularly.
- Maximize fitness if your target is to maximize your current cardiovascular fitness level, you have been training regularly for at least 10 -12 weeks and training nearly every day is not a problem to you.
