Did you know that 95% of all recreational athletes simply just run past their fitness goal? They train with rules of thumb, inaccurate measurement methods and usually in excessively high pulse areas. Keeping that in mind, Dynostics has created a system for performance and metabolism analysis. Dynostics enables an effective and holistic body management: The smart performance and metabolic analysis ensures optimal training and tailor-made nutrition based on their individual pulse values. The sports scientist and sports therapist Manfred Günther has analyzed the performance and the metabolism of more than 20,000 people in his diagnostic centers. Based on these empirical values, he continuously developed the performance diagnostics further. With his expertise, he provided important momentum in developing DYNOSTICS so that now all recreational athletes can efficiently train according to individual heart rate values – a long overdue step with great potential for a new training standard. Dynostics is based in Bad Wörishofen, Germany.
