The core of CoachAppOne is a stopwatch with two lists: A list on the left side with participants not finished. To the right, all finished participants
When each participant finishes their task, simply tap the name….and the time has been noted 😉
New in version 1.5.1:
Now you can design your own timing schemas.
… and name the laps to your comfort 🙂
CoachAppOne is divided into three main functional areas:
1) Choose: Select runners from your own list of CAO Contacts or from your iPads address book.
2) Test: Select Stopwatch or Beep test and press start.
3) Publish: Mailing of the results list to specified email addresses, for further handling in spreadsheets or alike.
Inside “Choose”, you select your runners amongst own created “CAO contacts”, or from your iOS Address book. The access to your iPad’s Address book is optional. To change the setup, tap the “info” icon at the bottom leftmost part of the screen.
To choose a Contact as a runner, simply tap the contact and the contact will appear in “Runners list”.
In “Test” view, you will find the Runners list at your left, the selector of testform in the middle, and the Results list to your right.
After selecting either “stopwatch” or “beep test” in the top selector, you can press “start” when all participants are ready.
When the clock is running, you can note the runners result by tapping. Tapping the runners name will move the runner to the results list together with the time or beep test result.
Please note: Using stopwatch it is recommended to use this app for longer distances, e.g. one mile, to ensure that not too many crosses the finish line at the same time. 15 participants arriving at the exact same time is too great a mouthfull when using this app.
From version 1.4.0 of CoachAppOne, multilaps has been added as an extra feature. You can even give each lap its own name, e.g. “Swimming”, “Cycling”, “Running”.
In version 1.5.1 this multilaps facility has been enhanced, so that you can create your own running schemes.
The end result is possible to send as a csv fil, showing all intermediate times registrered.
On the “Publish”tab you will be able to send the result list via your iPads standard eMail program. It is possible to attach a plain text file, or a comma-seperated-values file (csv file). A csv file is useful for loading the results list into a spreadsheet program, for further evaluation and follow-up.
It is the hope of CPI Hyllested that this application will provide coaches, of all kinds, a unique possibility to follow up on their teams performance and hereby their teams overall physical condition.
Please do not hesitate to send an email to CoachAppOne@CPI-hyllested.dk for commentary, support or suggestions for future improvements of this app.
First choose participants as when using stopwatch. Choose “Beep test” and tap “start”. When each athlete reaches their maximum, simply tap his or hers name, and the perfomance is registrered.
Below is what the testscreen looks like in the iPad app:
What is a beep test ?
The basic idea of the beep test is that of testing the maximum performance of an athlete.
The scheme of beeps is constructed so that afterwards you will be able to calculate the participants maximum aerobic endurance, also known as VO2 (ml/kg/min)
Basic elements of a beep test:
For conducting a beep test with CoachAppOne, you will need:
1. A running distance of 20 meters, marked at both ends
2. A loudspeaker attached to your iPad
3. preferably a display monitor/screen/projector of some sort.
Your team should place themselves at one end of the running distance. When you press “start” a countdown will begin from 5 to 0. At zero you will hear a “ding-ding” which indicates the beginning of the test. The beep test consists of 21 levels with a varying number of shuttles in each level. Each shuttle is marked with a beep, and when the level changes, a lower “dut-dut” will sound. To begin with, at level 1, each shuttle will take 9 seconds. At level 1 you will be running 7 shuttles. At the next level, each shuttle takes 8.5 (8.47 to be accurate) seconds, which will be run 8 times.
Should you reach the end of the test, level 21, shuttle 16, you will have been running the last shuttles at 4 seconds each. The total running distance of a complete beep-test is 4.8 kilometers in 22 minutes and 10 seconds……Not many people will make it to the end of a full beep-test 🙂
