HeiaHeia.com, Fazer (the #1 consumer brand in Finland), and SATS (the #1 Fitness Center Chain in Northern Europe) have teamed up to create a super-simple way to create a training program tailored for your personal needs.
A feature asked for by thousands of HeiaHeia users, the training program generator is an easy way to create a training program that fits your own activity profile, and is a natural part of your social training log on HeiaHeia. The first programs on the system have been created by SATS, the leading fitness center group in Northern Europe with over 300 000 members. The use of these programs, as well as HeiaHeia.com, is free of charge.
A great reason to try out a training program could be your New Year’s resolution: promise yourself to go through a 2-month Gym program or a 1-month “Getting started” program – we promise you’ll feel good about yourself afterwards! ; )
Here’s how to use it:
#2 Select what kind of a program you want
#3 Fill in your details and assess your fitness level by answering three simple questions
#4 Pick how hard you want the program to be
#5 Choose when you want to start (note: the programs have been designed for a weekly rhythm, so it’s best to start on a Monday)
#6 Preview your program: each week has a theme (each exercise is described in more detail when you click it open later on in your training log)
#7 You are ready to start!
#8 Using the program is easy: all the planned entries have been entered to your training log. As a given exercise “happens”, just click to make an entry as you normally do – you are then asked, if you want to approve / edit / remove this planned entry.
#9 Deleting a program: you can delete a full training program by clicking it open from your training log timeline, and then clicking “Delete”
Please note: do not risk your health by following a program and not listening to your body! If you feel tired or ill, remember to rest adequately. You can always remove and restart a program.
The programs are at this point available in two languages: Finnish and English. I.e. if you use HeiaHeia in Swedish, German, Spanish, Italian, or Russian, you’ll be shown the programs in English.
All feedback on the programs and anything else is very much appreciated! Also, please tell us if you’d like to see other kinds of programs in this tool.
