Summer is a great time of the year to work on that beach body, and cardio training and running play a major part in the process of getting into shape. Helping you stay consistent and motivated is Under Armour’s revolutionary Record technology. Scrapping away the fitness tracker models, Record uses its innovative system to measure your fitness levels, set a baseline and work upwards from there. By measuring your energy levels using a chip that’s embedded with the heel of its shoes, the Record technology assesses your power output each day to check how ready you are for your day’s workout.

The Record chip calculates your readiness for a workout taking not just fitness levels into consideration, but also fatigue from previous workouts, as well as adequate rest and recovery time. Through a standardised set of jumps, where you jump up 6 times from a standing still position, with your hands on your hips while wearing a pair of Under Armour’s Record-Equipped shoes, the chip measures your flight time, and translates that into the amount of power that your body can churn out. This data is plotted over a period of time to set a baseline, and when used with the UA MapMyRun app on your mobile device, will start customising smart and effective training plans for you that optimise your energy levels.

To keep you looking lightning white hot as you blaze up the tracks, here are this summer’s Under Armour Record Equipped Shoes in all-white colourways.
