& Custom Training Zones
Personalized and Optimized for You
Unlock a variety of Fitness Assessments in the Digifit apps, for the beginner through top athlete. View results online and see your fitness increase over time, develop more accurate heart* and pace zones, and more.
Assessments have been created through the years as a way of determining your cardiorespiratory fitness levels through an approximation of your VO2 max - a measurement of the velocity of oxygen through your body. We have taken those tried and tested assessments and created them as an in-app experience.
These fitness tests offer insight into what's happening physiologically and how your efforts affect your cardiovascular health. Challenge yourself and see how all that sweaty effort is really affecting your body.
There is a wide variety of assessments available. Take them to determine your own personal "zones" - heart rate or pace, or to estimate your own personal fitness level. Some assessments are more accurate than others for certain metrics or determining zones. Some you will find short and fun, while others will test your metal as an athlete.
Our assessments can be split into two groups. Beginner assessments, which are also called sub-maximal assessments, where you aren't asked to take it to the limits of your ability, but instead try to estimate things from a lower effort level. Advanced assessments are maximum effort routines, where we try to interpret your values after you've given us all you've got.
As a rule of thumb, Advanced assessments are better at determining zones or fitness levels than the Beginner assessments. The Advanced ones are designed for people who are used to physical activity on a regular basis however - they can be tough!
The more times you do the assessments, the better (more accurate) the results tend to be. Of course, nothing is more accurate than a full metabolic assessment from a certified testing agency such as New Leaf, but then this in-app upgrade is $3.99 and not $200, and doesn't require a technician.
