Logipace is the only iPhone app specifically designed to INSTANTLY improve athletic performance. Logipace was shown in a randomized controlled clinical trial to improve a 3-mile run time by an average of 45 seconds, just by using the app.
Cardio-Locomotor Synchronization (CLS) occurs when a rhythmic activity, such as running, biking, or walking, is performed in sync with the heartbeat. CLS has been shown in many published studies to improve the efficacy of the activity, increasing the volume of blood pumped by each heart beat, reducing blood pressure variability, and lowering maximal oxygen consumption.
Logipace uses CLS to enhance performance of any rhythmic activity, as well as lowering the stress on the heart and musculature. The app records heart rate real-time using the Wahoo Heart Rate Monitor (ANT+ Interface for the iPhone 4/4S) or uses a target heart rate defined by the user. The app then determines the optimal pace frequency within a comfortable range that best matches a harmonic of the heart rate, and plays one of four different beats at that precise frequency. By matching his or her stride to the beat, the user is using the power of CLS to perform better and make the activity easier on the body.
In addition to CLS, respiratory rate is also entrained by locomotor rhythms. Synchronization between rhythmic activity and breathing has also been shown in numerous published studies to have significant benefits both to performance, but also to reduce stress on the body.
Logipace uses Respiratory-Locomotor Synchronization (RLS) along with CLS to maximize efficiency and minimize the impact from strenuous exercise.
Logipace is very simple to use:
