I thought I would show off a triathlon training dashboard that incorporates all aspects of performance at a high level. The back end to this is proprietary, but it illustrates the importance of looking at the larger picture when achieving peak performance is crucial.
There are six key pieces of information in the above dashboard for the athlete to digest (from top left, clockwise):
- Weight and TM Performance score.
- TM Performance Score
- Daily Workout Score Plot
- Upcoming Events
- TM Performance Variable
- Weekly Goals
How do all of these pieces of information work together? Well, in the above dashboard, you can see a customized example of a triathlete that is rather inconsistent with their training, their life, and therefore their weight and performance score are trending in the wrong direction. This triathlete needs to focus on:
- Consistency of workouts, which will help reduce their life and workout scores
- Eating a consistent healthy diet, reducing their nutrition score
Focusing on these two variables, the triathlete can then start tracking toward improved performance and reduce their TrainingMetrix Performance Score.
Dashboards apply to much more than just business related use cases. Fitness and triathlon training can benefit greatly from a well designed dashboard showing analysis from comprehensive data collection. TrainingMetrix (the company I recently founded) is one of the most comprehensive fitness tracking solutions on the market. I developed it from my three years of triathlon training.
