QAthlete provides important insight into your body’s response to exercise by allowing you to measure physical workload, daily stress reaction and recovery, effectiveness of fitness training and EPOC.

Training effect indicates the performance and exertion level of an exercise session. Knowing training effect can lead to optimized performance. With QAthlete, view the positive training effect of successive workouts on physical fitness and physical condition during the measurement period. Discover the actual effects of your workout in order to train more safely and more effectively.
EPOC (Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption)
EPOC, or the amount of oxygen consumed after exercise during recovery, is the best parameter for measuring training effect. Harnessing this information is vital for targeting the optimal workout zone in order to improve fitness without overtraining. Using science and mathematics to train your body, QAthlete puts the laboratory at your fingertips to empower users with this valuable assessment.
Physical Workload and Recovery
Efficient and effective workouts are essential to improving physical fitness.

Reports based on scientific measurements allow you to prepare programs based on your body’s specific abilities, enabling you to progress and push the limits of performance without overtraining or risk of injury.
Weight Management & Energy Expenditure, Calories Burned
Effective weight management is exclusively based on the balance of energy intake and energy consumption. While the science is simple many people have a difficult time with maintaining a healthy weight. QAthlete facilitates goal-orientated weight management by providing an exact estimation of the total daily energy consumption as well as the effects of everyday activities on energy consumption.
Daily Momentary Mental Stress and Relaxation
Stress is present in our lives in two major ways: momentary stress and cumulative stress. Momentary stress occurs during our working lives as well as during sleep and can accumulate over time. Continuous increases in momentary stress leads to long-term, cumulative stress which can result in physical and mental breakdown. It is, therefore, important to measure momentary stress, recover quickly from it and understand its effect on our bodies. QAthlete is a proven method of measuring the physiological reactions of stress and recovery. QAthlete is also designed to help and analyze your sleep and improve it.
QAthlete simplifies weight management and regular exercise by providing multiple tools for tracking, monitoring, and managing workouts and diet. QAthlete’s unique compilations of daily energy consumption and expenditure keep both athletes and everyday individuals on track and accountable to personal goals and peak performance.

QAthlete assists in setting realistic goals, creating plans for reaching those goals in a timely manner and utilizes powerful tools and reporting to ensure daily progress adds up to ultimate success.
Stress has two major aspects: momentary stress and accumulative stress. Continuous increase of momentary stress leads to increase in long-term accumulative stress and health level.
Stress could be either physical, mental or both.
Physical stress is caused by long-term exposure to negative factors, such as: irregular lifestyle; physical overload; environmental toxicity; cigarettes; alcohol; drugs; improper diets, etc.
Mental stress can be caused by factors like: insecurity; negative emotions; mental overload; confusion; rejection on a social level; family problems; boredom; low self-esteem; etc.
This system is based on over three decades of profound scientific and medical researches of highly renowned medical professors and different scientific institutes.
Stress means different things to different people. In common language, people recognise a state of having too much expected of them, of being under pressure or strain, of being barely able to cope with some external demand which is both excessive and prolonged. It has a number of synonyms, but they all carry the connotation of unreasonable demands being placed on the individual in an emotional, mental or psychological sense.
A similar concept underlies the term stress in the physical sciences, a deforming force exerted on an object or structure that, if not resisted, would damage or destroy the object. The analogy is graphic and obvious. Scientists in the biological and health sciences also use stress in similar manner with subtle differences. They refer to environmental demands that affect an organism which, if not resisted, would damage or destroy it. It can also be applied to whole environmental systems. The common theme is an external factor that, if not resisted, would damage or destroy the system.
