Maximize your time and workouts to achieve your goals faster.
Stop settling for generic cookie-cutter training plans or paying thousands of dollars for a coach.
Bannister creates 100% personalized training programs that adapt and adjust on the fly based on your real training performance for a fraction of the cost of a coach.
So, it doesn’t matter if you get sick or take a day off; or, on the other hand, if your body is adapting better than expected to the training…
By reading the data from your sports watch, with our proprietary CSI (Cardiovascular Stress Indicator) algorithm and real-time adaptations, you will always have an optimized training program to take your performance to the next level.
How does Bannister creates a truly personalized, adaptative program?
With Your Age & Sex
Your age and sex are super important to create a personalized training program. Especially to analyze the stress specific runs put into your body and the time it needs to recover.
For example: the stress a twenty-year-old female body experiences in a 60-minute long run is very different than the stress a fifty-year-old male body experiences.
With Your Cardiovascular Fitness
Bannister associates your cardiovascular fitness to set up your heart rate zones.
Runners usually use the outdated “220 minus your age” formula. But it doesn’t make sense that a 40-year old runner’s heart rate zones are the same as the ones of a 40-year old couch potato.
That’s why Bannister takes into consideration your resting heart rate to create your running zones. Scientific research supports this approach.
With the proper heart rate zones, you will feel strong in every run.
Assessing Your Running Fitness
An easy way to understand the importance of assessing your running fitness and incorporating it into your training program is to think about swimming and running.
Swimmers are fit athletes; runners are fit athletes. But get a runner in a pool, and they will be dying in 200 meters. Make a swimmer run, and they probably won’t last much.
That’s why it’s super important to assess your running fitness before starting any training program so that your training pace is aligned with your current running capacities.
Bannister assesses your running fitness with a simple 6-minute test.
With the results of this test, Bannister can create your speed sessions and estimate your race finishing times. You will be able to successfully complete your workouts and objectively measure your improvements over time.
Adapting and Adjusting Your Program in Real Time
It doesn’t matter if you get sick or take a day off; or, on the other hand, if your body is adapting better than expected to the training…
By reading the data from your sports watch, our proprietary CSI (Cardiovascular Stress Indicator) algorithm makes real-time adaptations to your program, so you always have an optimized training that takes your performance to the next level.

No special equipment is required; you can do every session in your home, GYM, park, or wherever you want.
