DailyBurn Releases Inferno HR, First Interval Heart Rate Zone Workout Series to Incorporate Live Data into Exercise

The New Heart Pumping Program Integrates Heart Rate Data On-Screen, Allowing Users to Accurately Monitor their Progress and Reach Target Zones

NEW YORK, March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DailyBurn, a leading online health and fitness brand streaming premium video workouts to connected devices, released its 14th program InfernoHR, the first interval heart rate zone workout program to integrate participants' live heart rate data on connected TV "primary" workout screens. The Inferno HR program syncs an iOS device with any major Bluetooth low energy heart rate monitor, streaming the live data into the workout display as the program progresses so that users can better understand heart rate zones and modify their efforts to get the best results.

"HR" stands for heart rate training--the most reliable method for monitoring workout intensity. Inferno HR aims to improve VO2Max, the body's ability to utilize oxygen for energy, and lactate threshold, the ability to work at a higher intensity for a longer period of time.  The Inferno HR training creates an EPOC effect (Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption), which increases post-workout metabolism, resulting in continued calorie burn during rest periods and even hours after the workout is completed. 

"DailyBurn is constantly innovating to make working out at home as effective and fun as possible," said Andy Smith, CEO of DailyBurn. "Inferno HR not only brings a new challenge to our roster of programs, but it allows our consumers to monitor their progress real-time with real data, creating one of the most accurate and interactive at-home exercise programs on the market."

Directed by fitness video legend Mason Bendewald, Inferno HR is led by Anja Garcia, renowned fitness instructor and personal trainer. Garcia encourages users and pushes them to their physical limits as they progress through the program which includes four workouts and two active recovery days. Each of the four workouts, Tabata POC, Body Blast, Metcon Challenge, and Build and Burn, target different heart rate zones to achieve distinct goals ranging from calorie burning to stamina building.

Inferno HR adds a new challenging program to DailyBurn's workout series, which include a variety of cardio, strength, yoga, bodyweight and mobility programs, all available 24/7 for $10 per month. DailyBurn is available across a wide range of technology platforms including iPhone, iPad, Android, Apple TV, Roku, Xbox, Samsung Smart TV, Google TV or any computer.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
