Train Smarter

 

Want to be part of the future training?

During this year's World Championship in Triathlon Multisport, you will get a unique opportunity to acquire new knowledge in an exciting and innovative framework when the Sports Innovation Lab focuses on innovation under the heading “Train Smarter”. It's free to participate.

The side event will open the doors for enriching presentations by researchers and former top athletes such as Rasmus Henning, followed by many exciting companies who, through presentations and workshops, will talk about training optimization and improvements of sporting events.

The presentations and workshops will invite to test experimental, dialogue and feedback between companies and participants. The focus will be the athletes, where the future’s training will be discussed. The topics will be many and range from new heart rate measurement to training planning - or even rehabilitation and captivating fan experiences.

"We have the desire to create a good framework for knowledge sharing and innovation during this year's World Championship. We do this by putting the athlete in the center when we open the doors for the "Train Smarter" side event. Besides the fact that athletes can share knowledge across 50 nations, more universities and companies are invited to contribute to the "Train Smarter" side event, where athletes through dialogue and feedback with companies can be introduced to new knowledge in training and equipment, " - says Morten Fenger, Director of the Danish Triathlon Federation.

The Sports Innovation Lab is financial supported by Industriens Fond.

StepUP Air

We can now reveal another company, which is participating in the innovative side event TRAIN SMARTER:
StepUp Air is a heart rate monitor, which also measures the breath. Respiration is the fastest response to how the body responds to the performance. Therefore, it becomes possible to know exactly when you are in the different training zones, that is, when you train aerobically or anaerobically. This knowledge is also a prerequisite for organizing optimal training where the physical limits are challenged and improved and where the injuries are prevented.

Join TRAIN SMARTER and become more aware of how StepUp Air can help you and your workouts!
