The Heartzones system has been used in the United States for 5 years across hundreds of schools. The system is used in sessions to educate children about the activity levels required to increase their percentage of time spent in the moderate to vigorous activity (%MVPA) zone during activity sessions.
Non Stop FitKid have worked with Heartzones to develop the system further for All Day use. This enables schools to assess activity levels throughout the school day to identify the least and most active children and to assess the impact and sustainability of interventions on these groups of children and on individuals. The teacher has full control of the data without having a large administration load.
FIT Stars are displayed on the Big Board as a way for students and teachers to evaluate student performance during class. FIT Stars appear on students’ tiles based on the duration to the class, with a goal of earning 5 stars per class period.
FIT Points are earned based on the amount of time that students spend in the different heart rate zones. Each zone scores different amounts of points based on the intensity of the zone. The formula for FIT Points is: FIT Points = Frequency (F) x Intensity (I) x Time (T).
MVPA or moderate to vigorous physical activity is displayed prominently on display #2 of the Big Board. A burst is added behind the MVPA percentage when a student is above 50% MVPA.
