KETTLER WORLD TOURS offers different types of training.
The PWC and IPN tests are part of the test programs.
The full capacity tests always go to the selected user's maximum heart rate.
The IPN is basically an endurance test. This endurance test should allow you to assess your stamina in an easy, low-risk way and provide information for your ideal training heart rate and individual training monitoring (Coaching programs).
This information can be stored in your user profile.
The Test program is made up of 5 performance levels. These are customised to the user data and the target heart rate.
For the test to be valid, the first step must be reached without exceeding your target heart rate and at least the second step must be completed. If the second step is not reached the details under Training activity must be decreased. If the target heart rate is also not reached in the 5th level, the test is also invalid. In these cases, the details under Training activities must be increased and the test must be repeated.
Once the test has been completed successfully, the cardio fitness score and the heart rate ranges for fat burning training, basic training and speed training are worked out.
The coaching programs are available after the test. The IPN result of the last test can be viewed in the coaching programs.
The coaching programs are available after a successful IPN test.
2 coaching methods are available: health training and improved performance.
These programs can only be used with exercise bikes. The exercise bike is controlled using performance profiles. The time or distance can be used as the basis depending on the program. The programmes can be individually modified.
A special feature the program offers is Training record. This is continuous and is extended after each step, allowing for customised training. Performance modifications are only possible using the control panel (panel) or the PC keyboard's arrow keys.
With heart rate controlled programs, the performance or speed and incline is calculated using heart rate control. The heart rate control can be configured in Training settings. The programmes can be individually modified.
The Set target pulse program allows you to enter a target pulse before you start training and then it records a profile, similarly to the Training record.
Courses with speed and incline profiles are used for treadmills. The programmes can be individually modified.
A special feature the program offers is Training record. This is continuous and is extended after each step, allowing for customised training. Speed and incline changes are only possible using the control panel or PC's keyboard.
The exercise bike's brakes are switched to the RPM controlled mode in the braking level programs. The program is no longer controlled by the performance but the level. The performance achieved depends on the level and RPM.
Tours are based on an elevation profile modelled on a real tour. For the visual display the tour is given geographical coordinates to illustrate the course on Bing maps. Your own position is calculated by working out the distance covered. This is applied 1:1 with treadmills. With exercise bikes KETTLER WORLD TOURS adds another gearset in between. The exercise bike's braking performance is worked out from the incline and speed.
Only tours from KETTLER WORLD TOURS can be used in Online mode.
