Show Notes

What if you discovered a 60 second assessment you could do each morning with no special equipment that would essentially let you see how your body is responding to various stressors and changes to daily habits like sleep, alcohol intake, exercise and more? Now there is – and the insights anyone can garner from this info can be a game-changer in our lives, regardless of our focused pursuit. 

Welcome to the Catalyst 360 Podcast – your trusted source for engaging, evidence-based health, wellness & performance insights. Today’s guest is Dr. Marco Altini, one of the world’s foremost experts in something called HRV or Heart Rate Variability. Dr. Altini holds a PhD in Data Science & a pair of Masters degrees in Computer Science Engineering & Human Movement Science.  He is also the creator of a powerful app called HRV4Training that has been fully validated for its accuracy. If you’ve been a listener here for long, you’ve heard several guests note the intrigue around HRV. Two guests specifically – with no sponsorship connection – identified Dr. Altini’s tool as the tool of choice and he was very kind to accept our invitation to dig into the details as our guest. A brief note about today’s format: The first portion of our discussion will focus in on HRV & the value it brings to overall health, wellness & performance. We’ll then spend the back half of the discussion focusing on its use to enhance athletic performance along with a few specific questions about deeper layers of the app. So, whether you’re curious about the application to everyday life or want to dig into fitness details, we’ll cover it.
