Smart Coach

Your online, digital coach

What is it?

Smart Coach contains the combined knowledge and experience from some of the world’s greatest athletes and coaches, working with us to ensure you get the right amount of training, at the right intensity, at the right time. Smart Coach is completely different to other training programmes as there are no canned sessions blindly churned out. Our training intelligence analyses your activity then updates your next training sessions, making sure you recover sufficiently but pushes you hard when needed.

In today’s world, we’re under so much time pressure that every second counts. Smart Coach adapts to your lifestyle, recognising when you’ve been able to do some training and when you haven’t, then automatically adjusting your programme so you maximise the time available. Whether you’re training for fitness, weight loss or an event, the system is clever enough to integrate multiple goals and give you the perfect combination and blend of training sessions each week.

How does it work?

Trainsmart Interactive time line

After you’ve entered your targets and goals e.g. if you have a weight loss target or are training for a 10km run, Smart Coach assesses your ability level and designs your training plan. In a perfect world, you follow your programme and everything goes brilliantly. Unfortunately, life’s not like this; you miss a session or two, go too easy some days or too hard others, go on holiday or get injured etc.

Smart weekly targets

Designing a training programme which adapts and adjusts to your lifestyle is really tricky. We do the complicated stuff behind the scenes, leaving it as simple as possible for you to see what to do each week. Smart Coach sets a target for you to spend a certain amount of time training at each intensity. When you upload training sessions into the system, Smart Coach fills up each column with training time. It helps you stay on track by making sure you don’t do too much training at the wrong intensity. Your target each week is to fill up every column to 100%.

A peek inside

Trainsmart Interactive training intelligence

Smart Coach is really clever the way it works, but no-one ever sees it as everything happens quietly in the background. We thought it would be cool for you to see an illustration of what happens just to create one tiny part of your training plan – your session time. For example, how does it work out how long your training session should be?

 

These are some of the variables Smart Coach analyses, when it decides to schedule a 45 minute session in your training programme:

– What activities/sports you do

– Your ability level for each sport

– What you are training for e.g. weight loss, fat loss, events

– What phase of your training you are in e.g. for events, your training programme is periodised. This means your session duration and intensity varies each week as you progress through your plan and approach the event date

– What training you have done over the past several weeks e.g. if you have done a long or hard session yesterday, you are going to be more tired than if you rested. Your perceived fatigue level is cross-referenced to ability level and sport i.e. an advanced athlete will have a stronger physiology than a beginner and so can recover quicker. It also depends on what sport you did, as a high impact sport like running will have a greater fatigue effect than cycling or swimming.

– What activities and sports you’ve recently done

– The duration

– The intensity

– Your target training hours for the week

– Your completed hours

– Your preferred training days

– How many days are left in the week

Smart Coach analyses your training for the week and compares what you’ve done with what you should have done e.g. if you’ve done too much high intensity training, it will design low/medium intensity sessions so you don’t over-train. Taking all these things into account, it designs a session with the optimal duration to achieve your weekly target. Phew!
