"ithlete is an integral component of my athlete monitoring system. It is a validated, reliable measurement of HRV that enhances our ability to identify players that may need modified training. I have used ithlete in elite environments for over 4 years and the recent introduction of the finger sensor has made the product even better."
Dr Craig Duncan, Head of High Performance Sydney FC

"In my role as a strength and conditioning coach, HRV has become a very important information about the daily state of my player (s). How much stress is in their body, how well are they recovered from last training session, what was the sleep quality? These are important answers you get from the system . ithlete is a quick, easy, and non invasive measure of readiness and fatigue. It takes a few minutes, and your test is stored in your phone. With the Team App, I get the test results even quicker on my computer, before the players arrive at the club, so I can make comparison between them, and immediate changes to training."
Alessandro Schoenmaker, FC Twente

"I really like having the HRV number each morning to gauge my workouts from day-to-day rather than trying to follow a weekly schedule."
Jaacob Bowden, Professional Golfer, http://www.jaacobbowden.com

"It's the best monitoring tool I have come across in 10 years of international athletics. It's easy to use and understand and extremely accurate. "
Amir Williamson, International Athletics: Hammer Throw

"I have been using the system personally but also with some pro MMA fighters. It has been an incredible tool thus far. The fighters are buying into the program and having great results."
Mike Perry-RKC II, CPT-(NSCA), USAW, USATF, FMS, Skill of Strenght LLC.

"My personal experience has been so good since I started using it, that I was starting to feel invincible, after years of struggling to manage my health while working and training and having some sort of a life."
Janet Birkmyre, Editor, www.BikeEnvy.co.uk

"The huge bonus of ithlete is that it picked up that I was fighting the cold long before I had any symptoms #clever #trainsmart #hrv. (Twitter)"
Claire Martin, Cyclist

"After about 3 weeks using the system, I have nothing but praise. Its very accurate, a high HRV number does equate to a good performance that day, and the graphical representation is excellent for seeing trends. Overall at the moment I'd say It has made me cut back on my training just slightly (maybe 1 extra day of rest ever 1 1/2 weeks) but it has changed the timing of my rest days. I feel much better for it, am sleeping much better, feel more fresh, and like I have more snap every time out. Its a bit soon to claim it has improved my performance, but certainly if the way I feel is an indication its good-improved performance will certainly be forthcoming. (Roadbikereview.com Forum)"
Slegros, Cyclist

"The impact of this simple tool is profound. Now, if the ithlete tells me I need rest, I can take the day off without questioning my decision. I can recover far better without the deleterious effects of second-guessing myself. Likewise, if the ithlete says I have the green light to train at full gas, I don’t wonder whether I’m pushing myself too hard again. Not only has it helped me to get more from my physical training, but it has also relieved a huge amount of mental and emotional stress."
Amber Pierce, Professional Cyclist

"Honestly, if you're an athlete, S&C/Performance Coach or serious trainer, you should get yourself ithlete as soon as yesterday. (Twitter)"
Alexander Oviawe, Founder & CEO of Precision Sports Technologies Ltd.

Alexander Oviawe, Founder & CEO of Precision Sports Technologies Ltd.

"Stress management in my body is one of my big challenges since I'm now hormonally overdosed, due to past cancer in my thyroid. I was desperately searching for such a tool to track HRV for a personal use without the need of the computer and a big machine…Until I found ithlete! Thank you so much to the whole team for that awesome product!! You can't imagine how happy I am to discover this product and the HRV possibilities :-)"
Rémy Touzé,

"I wrapped up with 9th in US master nat criterium and 30th in road race (60 and 80 starters respectively), so with my 4th in UCI masters worlds road qualifier it was a good year. I credit a lot of my improvement to the HRV program and my being able to track my recovery much better."
Bill Pedler, Road Cyclist

"The Cardiosport strap is definitely better. I feel my results are clearly superior. The old strap (a different brand) would give me the same results...but I'd have to soak it really well and sometimes take a few measurements. So, I'm not really seeing "better" results...but I'm getting them the first time."
David Burton, Track Athlete

"The new initial calibration seems to help a lot with consistency of readings. Love the new features and ability to add TRIMP scores and comments. Thanks for continuing to improve the product!"
Nikemkballer,

"I just changed my testing protocol to do my morning test standing up. When I first got iThlete, I tried doing it standing but my results weren't consistent. I started to do it sitting and it really helped. But now that I've had it a while, and I can breathe normally, and am not anxious about it, my standing results are consistent."
David Burton, Track Athlete

"The new features are brilliant! Like the way you can steady your heart rate using bpm before doing the hrv measurement. Also like the dropbox features. "
Rory Arneil,

"I have used this and have found it valuable. I had a minor problem with the device that was quickly addressed by the company. I highly recommend this."
Anon,

"As a physician I am impressed with the simplicity of the device. It is very sensitive and helps to monitor the intensity of your workout. Tells you if you are exercising too little or too much."
Arawi Belda, Physician

"What a result...nice HRM strap. I was getting bit paraniod about lack of pick up and random readings on my other one...great improvement. has made me feel much better. I like it better than polaer ones that are to rigid and seem to sit away from my huge chest"
Julian Jenkinson, Elite Cyclist & Triathlete

"Amazing app. Thank you for making it even better. I recommend it to all the basketball players I train."
College2NBA, Basketball Coach

"HRV is a holistic measure of the body with many possible parameters. These measures can be considered as a non-invasive way of assessing the body through time efficient means. The endocrine system is regulated by many different processes and HRV is a measure of these processes. Understanding the impact of stressors on the body as a whole has great benefits for the management of individual athletes in the team sport environment and is superior to the use of individual hormonal measures. HRV allows physiologists, sports scientists and strength and conditioning coaches to have a simple yet effective feedback tool on the current state of the athlete, along with the ability to assess trends within the group resulting from the applied training program. HRV is a tool that can be applied daily with a one off cost, and provides a simple yet reliable assessment that is actionable."
Dean Robinson, High Performance Coach, Essendon FC

"HRV has become a useful tool in the assessment of athlete readiness... ithlete has made measurement of HRV affordable, easy to use, and fast."
Darryl Eto, Strength & Conditioning Coach, Houston Rockets Basketball Team

"The ithlete offers a simple and affordable method for athletes to chart heart rate variability. An easy one minute test can be performed in the morning, upon waking, and those results can then be emailed directly to the coach who can help instruct the athlete on what the days training should consist of. Additionally, the graphical analysis that the ithlete provides you with allows you to see trends over daily, weekly, and monthly time frames, so that not only can daily training be modulated, but also, complete training cycles can be formulated depending on the athletes own ability to resist training stressors and make the necessary adaptations. Finally, recovery methods can be strategically employed to help influence the nervous system into a more favorable balance between parasympathetic and sympathetic states"
Patrick Ward, CSCS LMT Performance Coach & Soft Tissue Therapist. Tempe, Arizona, USA

"your device has been a real godsend after a severe bout of overtraining syndrome last year"
Sarah Ledbury, Triathlete

"The ithlete is a excellent product which really re-insures me that I am not over-training."
Jimmy Wilson, Cyclist

"The tool is very well liked, often used by the riders and its amazing how exactly it works. "
Giant Gellert, Professional cycling team

"Last year was a year of injury, fatigue and under-recovery and the data from the ithlete showed that"
Rebecca Irons, Fitness Professional & Ironman Triathlete

"I started using the ithlete June 2010 and I absolutely love it! I've come to rely on the data and with training for my second Ironman this year, it's going to be even more important"
Rebecca Irons, Fitness Professional & Ironman Triathlete

"I compete as a professional athlete and almost always get ill in the lead up to competition - since I've been using the ithlete, it hasn't happened"
Leigh Remedios, Pro MMA Fighter

Kami Semick, World Champion Ultra Runner

Henry Szwinto, 3rd Place Veteran London Marathon Runner

"great for confirming what I feel and forces me to make the right choice about training for that day"
Liz Yelling, Olympic Marathon Runner

"Otherwise peaking and tapering are just guesswork - when am I ready? With ithlete, I know when I'm ready to race."
Nigel Strong, Triathlete
