Heart Rate Settings Policy
Regular physical activity is known to produce health benefits and decrease the risk of disease. Heart rate is the best metric to ensure the physical activity is of adequate intensity and duration to produce the desired benefits. Intensity and duration have an inverse relationship. As intensity goes up, duration will need to go down and vice versa. In addition, the same inverse relationship can be used to get the desired benefits while being adjusted to meet the personal abilities and time constraints of participants.
In order to maintain a standard that produces personal health benefits and supports the initiatives that Jaynes has for improving the health risks for employees, the following options for heart rate settings are available to participants:
65-75% of your max heart rate with a weekly goal of 90 minutes in and above your zone
70-80% of your max heart rate with a weekly goal of 75 minutes in and above your zone
75-85% of your max heart rate with a weekly goal of 45 minutes in and above your zone
Participants can choose the setting that best fits their personal abilities and commitment to being active. They may change their settings to any one of the three options at any time by contacting their coach or clicking the button below.
Manual Credit for Time In Zone
Manual credit for exercise time in heart rate zones is reserved for technical failures and non-routine extenuating circumstances only. The following are examples of when manual credit would be warranted:
Technical issues with the cardio monitor or the Nuvita platform that prevented downloading of cardio minutes.
Dead batteries may be included as a technical issue, but not multiple incidents of dead batteries
Examples where manual credit is not warranted include:
User error—user does not understand how to properly use the equipment
Participants forgot their cardio monitors
Participants lost their cardio monitor
Participants accidentally turned off their monitors
Participant is on vacation, sick or traveling for business reasons and don’t have their monitors with them
Participants wish to use a device that is non-compatible with Nuvita platform
Current compatible devices include Nuvita Bluetooth monitor, Garmin VivoSmart HR, and Apple Watch
In the event of a technical failure it is the participant’s responsibility to contact Nuvita technical support as soon as possible when the failure occurs. Technical support must validate a technical failure has occurred before manual credit will be given.
A report of those receiving manual credit is provided to Jaynes Management on a weekly basis.
Participants may experience hardships (injury, illness, etc.) after starting their Nuvita programs that impair their abilities to complete their programs as originally designed, for some period during their programs or for the duration of their programs.
Nuvita professionals will modify participants’ programs in order to allow participants’ to continue to use the heart rate monitor during the hardship period. Heart rate zones will be set at a level that is achievable during the hardship, even if that level requires the zones be set to resting levels. Hardship status does not remove the requirement to use the heart rate monitor and record the achievable physical activity or complete program elements that do not require physical exertion, such as lessons.
Validation from a physician in writing is required to be placed on hardship. Hardship forms can be downloaded by clicking here. Those with an on going hardship are required to renew their hardship with their physician and submit a new form at the beginning of each challenge.
It is the responsibility of the participant to notify their coach AS SOON AS POSSIBLE at the onset of the hardship. Failure to notify the coach in a timely manner may result in not receiving credit retroactively.
A report of those on hardship is provided to Jaynes Management on a weekly basis, although to protect privacy the nature of the hardship is never disclosed and remains confidential between the particpant and the Nuvita coach.
