BioForce HRV Answers

Ever since I made my FREE Report detailing the launch of BioForce HRV available last week, I’ve been literally flooded with emails from people asking various questions about the details. I’ve even gotten several text messages from people that have my number asking if I’ll reserve them one of the first systems. Needless to say, people are very excited about BioForce HRV! I wanted to take a minute to answer some of the more common questions I’ve received so far…

Q: “Do I have to have a smartphone in order to use BioForce HRV?”

A: No, aside from working on any phone with the apple iOS or Android OS, BioForce HRV will also work on the ipod touch as well as Android based tablets. It will not, however, work with PCs or laptops at this time. If you do not have an iphone or Android phone, the least expensive option to run the software is an ipod touch and this is what I’ve personally used to run it on and it works very well.

Q: “What is HRV technology and how does it work?”

A: In short, heart rate variability is a powerful technology that measures how much stress the body is under and how well it is recovering by looking at the autonomic nervous system. It is this system that is responsible for coordinating the body’s adaptive responses and by measuring its current state, we can get object look at whether the body is under stress or recovering from it or anywhere in between.

The technology has been around for close to 50 years and was developed by the Russians, but it’s also been widely used in the medical fields and there is a great deal of research validating its use. I’ll be discussing the technology more as I get closer to launching BioForce HRV as well.

“Q: I bought Ultimate MMA Conditioning, does that make me eligible to get access to the pre-sale a day earlier than everyone else?”

A: Yes, any customer that has bought my book, DVD, Polar RS100, Special Strength Training or any other product is considered a customer and as a special thanks, all customers will be given a 24 hour window to pre-order BioForce HRV before anyone else. Anyone who buys one of my products before BioForce HRV will be given this opportunity

Q: What happens after you sell the initial 250 BioForce HRV Systems?

After the first 250 systems that I am making available for pre-sale on the 13th are gone, people will be given the option to buy the system and be put on the waiting list for the next shipment to become available. I anticipate these second phase orders going out sometime in mid to late January. Those who purchase one of the first 250 systems will have their orders shipped out January 1st.

Q: “I’m not a competitive athlete, do I still need to use HRV?”

Anyone that trains hard and values their time should use HRV to monitor and manage their training. The technology helps personalize training in a way that’s simply not possible any other way and this individualization ensures you’ll get the best results possible.

I’ve used HRV for more than ten years to train everyone from world champion fights to housewives to Microsoft executives and everyone in between. Aside from fitness and performance, HRV also provides information that correlates very strongly with overall cardiovascular health and overall wellness, not to mention life expectancy. HRV is a very powerful tool that has broad implications and you do not need to be a world class athlete to get the most out of it. Anyone that wants to get the most out of their hard work and is ready to get more out of their training in less time should be using BioForce HRV.

Q: “What’s the difference between BioForce HRV and the ithlete app?”

The BioForce HRV app is built using the ithlete’s platform, but there are several difference between the two apps, both in terms of how the HRV test is done and also how it is reported. The changes that were made were done so based on my 10 years of experience using the Omegawave.

BioForce HRV was designed with the same function and testing protocol as the Omegawave in mind and it correlates very highly to the same readings the Omegawave provides. BioForce HRV uses a different testing protocol and different thresholds to determine states of overtraining than ithlete, so if ithlete and BioForce HRV were to be used simultaneously, they would likely not always provide the same training recommendations and there would be some disagreement between the two.

Q: “Are you going to show me how to use HRV in my training?”

Absolutely! HRV won’t do you much good if you don’t know how to use it so making sure that it’s simple and easy to use is my first priority. All BioForce HRV Systems will come with “The Ultimate Guide to HRV” training manual that will teach you everything you need to know to get the most out of HRV technology.

The great thing about HRV is that the information is provides is very easy to use when you understand how the body works. I’m going to teach you step by step about the training process and how HRV fits into it. This manual is based on more than 10 years of my work and literally thousands of HRV tests performed on hundreds of athletes. By the time you’re done reading the training manual, all your questions will be answered and you’ll be ready to put the power of HRV to work for you.

Q” “I’m a coach or personal trainer, can I use BioForce HRV with my clients?”

BioForce HRV was designed to be used by one person per app and does not support multi users at this time. The next stage of development, however, will be to let coaches and trainers view the HRV results of all their athletes/clients from a central website. This will give you the power to manage the training programs of a large number of people very practically and easily.

Also, if you are a trainer or coach, I will soon have a reseller option available for you to resell the app to your clients and athletes. All resellers will be required to have purchased the app and used it themselves, however, because this is the only way to learn how HRV works and how it should be used. I strongly recommend anyone interested in becoming a BioForce HRV reseller to get the system for themselves ASAP and begin using it to learn how it works firsthand.

Q “How much will BioForce HRV cost?”

I will be providing all of the details of the cost to order BioForce HRV when we get closer to launch, but I will say that it will be affordable for everyone and very reasonably priced. The system will start at under $200 for the base package. There will be two packages available, one with just the app, hardware and training manual and one that also includes the Polar RS100. If you don’t have a heart rate monitor, you will at least need a wireless transmitter and the system is compatible with most Polar models and others.

BioForce HRV also comes with a lifetime money back guarantee. If you use it and don’t feel like it’s everything I have said it is and it doesn’t help you get more out of your training, you can return it at any time for a full no questions asked 100% money back guarantee. This means you can try BioForce HRV absolutely risk free and experience it for yourself without having to worry about whether or not it is worth the investment.

Q “How can I get my hands on BioForce HRV?”

As long as you’re on my email list, I’ll be giving out all the details of when and where you can get BioForce HRV. If you haven’t yet downloaded and read my FREE Report, make sure to do that now so you can get all the details. Anyone who this report will be sure to get all the details on how to get BioForce HRV when the pre-release becomes available on December 12th for existing customers and December 13th for everyone else.


  1. Joel, This sounds epic! I can’t wait! One question: if I buy the software for example for an iphone I own at the moment, but then upgrade the phone at some point in the future, will I have to purchase the software etc again to have it on the new phone?


    1. Hmm…I believe any apps that you purchase get stored in your itunes and you just synch your new phone with your itunes and you won’t have to repurchase anything. Whatever the case may be, this app is no different than any other iphone/android app but I do believe you’ll probably lose your HRV data that’s been recorded in the old phone, but I’ll have to check on that

  2. Hey Joel, I’m really looking forward to this. Your ultimate mma conditioning book was awesome and I really gained a lot of knowlede about what my training was doing.
    I also have ithlete and the receiver. Like Radnai asked earlier, would it be necessary to buy another receiver or would the one I already have work as well?

    1. No, unfortunately Polar doesn’t make their current bluetooth open source and there are literally only a couple of phones that work with them right now. Fortunately, their new Bluetooth 4.0 transmitters are only a few months away from being released and I will be incorporating these into future generates of BioForce because they will be open source. Within the next year or so, this new Bluetooth, also called “smart bluetooth” or “low energy bluetooth” will become the new standard and you’ll see a lot more devices using it, including BioForce HRV

        1. Henry,

          BioForce HRV 2.0, which will be coming out in the following weeks, will be compatible with the Polar H7 Bluetooth Smart Strap. The Wahoo fitness one does not transmit the raw R-R interval data so it will not be compatible, but it works great with the Polar H7.

          1. Any update on 2.0 coming out with the Bluetooth support? Back in September you mentioned it would be a few weeks, but I still see version 1.1 in the iOS App Store.

  3. Joel,

    What is the status on the Bioforce HRV training manual? I have not received any info about it and just wanted to check to ask for a time line on its release.

  4. Hey Joel!

    I’ve been using your methods to train some of my clients with excellent results. I was wondering if you are going to release Bioforce HRV for Windows phones? Especially now with the new Lumia 920, I would love to use it with your program.

    – Johan, a fan from Finland

    1. Johan,

      I’d love to make it available for windows phones, but right now there is just not enough demand to justify the cost of development. If Windows can grab a bigger share of the market so that it makes sense, I will be more than happy to make it work for Windows, but right now there’s just too few people that use Windows mobile phones
