STAR Training Program

We all have our own reasons to take up training. Some of us train to improve fitness or health, some enjoy the social aspects of the sport, while others exercise to manage their weight. Motivation is the key to a successful training program. The STAR Training Program feature is developed to maintain training motivation through all week and every week. It helps physically active people to improve their aerobic fitness more compared to general training recommendations – and with lower total training time and intensity[1].

With the STAR Training Program, you can choose whether you want to maximize performance or improve fitness, or lose some weight. The STAR Training Program then crafts you an aerobic training program with weekly targets, expressed in total exercise duration in three different intensity levels on one week. Your task is to train at all three intensity levels in order to reach optimal results. The type of sports or exercise is free for you to choose.

When you plan your training week, remember to alternate heavier days with lighter ones, and not to schedule all your sessions for the weekend. Spread them out evenly throughout the week for better results. After a full week of training, the STAR Training Program gives you clear feedback. If you train right, it will reward you for a good week of training. In addition, it adapts to your training habits to update your training program for the next week, keeping you motivated in reaching your long-term training target.
