Grow your muscles faster with the First Sensor to track Fitness Training and visualize results in real-time, suitable for all exercises. 


                          REAL TIME VISUALIZATION DURING WORKOUT!




Beast shows you in real-time how much you are pushing, rep by rep, whether you are lifting weights, using a machine or performing bodyweight exercises. You can chose to visualize Speed, Power or Strength and monitor your performance live while working out. You can review your results while resting between each set and receive indications about how to make your training more effective: for example the Beast App accesses all your data to suggest optimal weight to use or the number of reps to perform to reach your training goal faster!

             

More than just a feeling or visual feedback: Quantifying your movements is essential to reach better results. By measuring exactly the efforts you perform in the gym, Beasts tracks your improvement and helps you training better. Moreover, it gives you the overview of all workout data collected so far, keeping a diary of your performance and checking how effective each training is.

    AN ACCURATE PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM, MADE EASY        _________________________________________________________________________

First of all, data about your movements is acquired with 50 Hz: this means, for all of your movements, you have 50 measurements per second!

To achieve the a higher level of measurement reliability, and to perform each possible exercise, the Beast sensor is configured as a small magnet, which enables it to be easily plugged on barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells or gym machines and to the body itself for performing free body exercises with the Beast Vest (see below)

_________________________________________________________________________          

_________________________________________________________________________

STRENGTH: more strength means more load. And more load means more muscles!

EXPLOSIVENESS:  you can defeat all your opponents applying force faster!

_________________________________________________________________________

1) Connect sensor to weights, machines or to free body

2) Select Training goal, Exercise and Load on the beast App

3) Start your workout!

                                       CHOOSE YOUR TRAINING GOAL!

_________________________________________________________________________

What is your training objective? Let Beast know and Beast will tell you if you are doing your exercise correctly! Theory of training has been transferred into software to give real time indications, as for example the color of the bar, to increase effectiveness and reduce wasted effort!

Get your athletic evaluation instantly! After each exercise performed, Beast tells you how much you´ve worked to improve your Strength, Power, Velocity, Resistance and Explosiveness.

DATA & ALGORITHM VALIDATION

_________________________________________________________________________

At the department of Applied Mechanics of Politecnico di Milano - Italy highest ranked university of technology - we compared data with a Celesco linear encoder to validate measurements and results: the drift of the speed signal which is typical of accelerometers & gyroscopes instruments has been completely removed, enabling tracking and visualization of all reps in real-time
