  • Case: Selqee

    logo-selqee-1280Despite of the fact that training programs are in the very core of fitness training, the tools to prescribe and deliver them are far from optimal. Strength training programs are mainly a bare list of prescribed movements without an explicit and systematic plan for personally optimized weight, repetitions and resting time. There’s no real time feedback nor analysis based on actual training session for the trainee or personal trainer. This applies even into mobile app based training programs, only exception being perhaps heart rate driven cardio training apps, which however, are not optimal for strength training. The challenge has been both receiving the training program and collection of training session feedback without requiring too much fiddle from the end user. To get best training outcome the program should be created and updated based on each actualized training performance. Selqee’s Repmax does exactly that. It’s a mobile app that allows personal trainer or trainee to set a certain goal, like gain muscle mass or increase strength endurance, after which the app creates a training program which changes in real time based on actual training performance. All this with excellent user experience…Read More
