Technology: BFT use science and technology to drive positive outcomes for people at all fitness levels. The technology allows BFT to show high level visual content on multiple digital displays so coaches can spend more time concentrating on members in opposed to showing them how to do an exercise. BFT use superior prescribed heart rate tech to drive members results.
BFT³- Heart rate specific tech: BFT have launched their own bespoke heart rate system which doesn’t just reward high rate rates like normal tech does. This completely bespoke system means members are getting better results by hitting the correct zones. For example, being at a 90-99% heart rate in a strength class will not get you the desired outcome of getting stronger and building muscle, so the technology does not reward members for being in the wrong zone, encouraging members to follow the prescription.Backed by Science: The 50-minute workouts are programmed to help reduce fat and create lean muscle. They are organised in 4-6 week progressive blocks to ensure members can keep improving over time.
