“It showed me what I needed to do to get that intensity. Being a track athlete and being as fit as I am, it showed me how much I actually have to work to get into that zone. I can’t just take it light and train light if I want to improve.” – Justin Lehmkuhler, 8th grade PE student at Woodford County (Ky.) Middle School who conducted an independent study project in PE using the IHT Spirit System. He later presented his findings at the University of Kentucky.

“It’s getting better and better. I think I just figured out how I can use the data to reinforce the idea that you need to be active.” – John Kruse, PE teacher at Nobel Charter (Calif.) Middle School, Los Angeles Unified School District

“The other thing I noticed with the kids is that they’ll run over to the computer to check where their heart-rate is, to see if they’ve met their goal yet. If it’s toward the end of the hour, they will step aside and do a bunch of jumping jacks, push-ups or something to get their heart rate going again if they haven’t met their goal. I think that’s pretty cool.” – Ben Hemberger, PE teacher and basketball coach at Fosston (Minn.) High School
