An Inside Look at Morpheus: The World’s First Digital Recovery Coach

Over the last 10 years, just about everyone has tried some sort of new fitness technology. You can now track almost everything about your life, from how many steps you take in a day, to how many hours of sleep you get each night.

The problem?

Let’s face it, none of it has made a real impact on the way you train or the results you’re seeing.

Why?

Simple: information is only valuable if you know what to do with it. All the technology in the world won’t do you any good unless it actually helps you translate that information into real-world results.

Here’s the cold, hard truth: today’s generation of fitness technology hasn’t solved problems, it’s created them.

We have cars that can park themselves and smartphones that we can talk to. Yet the only thing most fitness tech has done so far is create endless mountains of numbers on a screen and colored charts that nobody knows what to do with.

The reason that fitness technology has failed us is largely because it was created by teams of engineers and scientists, people that live in the office and the lab rather than in the gym.

This is why I’ve spent the last two years developing a new fitness technology from the ground up. I wanted to create something built on the foundation of everything I’ve learned as coach who’s spent more than 15 years working with people of all levels and abilities—from housewives and Microsoft executives, to world champions and pro bowlers.

I know what it takes to help people reach their fitness goals and I know where the current technology falls short.

Finally, Fitness Technology that will make you more fit – The World’s First Digital Recovery Coach

Morpheus is the first fitness technology designed by a coach (me) to give you what you’re looking for – a more effective way to train and a faster way to improve your fitness.

I’ve spent more than 2 years building Morpheus, drawing from my years of experience as a coach and combining it with the knowledge gained from analyzing more than 1.5 million HRV data points.

What does the world’s first digital recovery coach do?

To give you a quick overview, I put together a video to let Morpheus explain that for himself…

Your data tells an important story. Morpheus will tell you what it is and how to use it to your advantage

Everything in your life is connected, but the current fitness technology out there only lets you see the dots – it doesn’t show you how they are connected.

This is where the true power of Morpheus is and what makes him so different.

I created Morpheus to tell the complete story of your life and fitness on one single screen. Fitness technology doesn’t have to be complicated or hard to use.

The Morpheus home screen:
Everything you need to know about your fitness

Morpheus Digital Recovery Coach

The Morpheus home screen provides a single, powerful snapshot of your fitness. Forget having to scroll through screen after screen of endless numbers and charts to try to figure out what it all means.

To give you the most complete picture of your recovery, fitness and lifestyle possible, Morpheus does all the hard work for you and analyzes:

1. How much you move: Morpheus taps into popular wearables or uses your phone’s built in sensors to track your steps, miles and total calories. This helps you to help you see the big picture of how much you move. Until now, activity data hasn’t been connected to your fitness or your recovery.

Morpheus doesn’t just track your activity, he helps you uncover how much activity you need to maximize your recovery and improve your fitness.

2. The right training intensity for you: Go beyond plain old, boring heart rate monitoring with personalized zone monitoring. One of the most exciting features of Morpheus is his ability to get you in your own, personalized heart rate zone each and every time you train.

I’ll tell more about this in a minute, but this is the only way to stop guessing and make sure you’re getting the most out of every single workout.

With Morpheus, you can use the included Morpheus recovery band or if you have a favorite Bluetooth monitor, you can use that too. Morpheus works with a variety of devices to gives you the ability to get more out of devices you may already have.

3. Are you getting enough high-quality sleep? Morpheus knows. If you have your favorite wearable or sleep tracking app, Morpheus can tap into the data to give you the inside scoop into how sleep is affecting your recovery. Morpheus can track sleep through Garmin devices, Fitbits and many of today’s most popular sleep apps.

Don’t have one? No problem, just tell Morpheus how many hours you slept last night and he’ll take it from there.

4. Heart rate variability: get your daily HRV measurement in with the new Morpheus recovery band in less than 3 minutes. When it comes to HRV, I made it easier than ever to take your daily reading: no chest strap required. The Morpheus recovery band is designed to slide on your forearm or leg so it’s easier and more convenient.

No more putting a chest strap on, or fiddling with a finger sensor. The new recovery band is the easiest way to take your daily HRV measurement to help Morpheus analyze your recovery and track your fitness.

5. How do you feel? Morpheus connects how you feel to your recovery and what you need to do each to improve. One of the biggest limitations of current fitness technology is that almost none of it takes into account how you actuallyfeel.

Even with all the other data Morpheus can track and analyze, it wouldn’t be complete without taking into account markers like the RPE and performance of a workout, how sore you are, how tired you feel, etc. Through short questionnaires, Morpheus connects how you feel to your recovery and most importantly, what to do to look, feel and perform even better.

Born out of years of experience and the science of machine learning – your personal recovery coach is here to help

I spent years creating Morpheus to crunch all the numbers - your activity, training, sleep, HRV, along with how you feel - and then tell you what it all means in a single number: your daily recovery score.

The single biggest thing that holds most people back from achieving their fitness goals isn't their training, it's their recovery - or their lack of recovery I should say.

They overuse high-intensity training day in and day out because they can’t see the true effects it’s having on their body until it’s too late.

Having an accurate, daily gauge of your recovery is truly invaluable because without it, you’re left guessing. Most people underestimate just how much stress their under, whether it’s from training and/or their daily lives.

So many people end up under-recovered and missing out on the results they could (and should) be seeing.

The Morpheus machine learning algorithms were built on the foundation of my years of experience and understanding of what recovery is and what it looks like, combined with the insights gained from analyzing more than 1.5 million HRV data points.

Morpheus does what no other fitness technology out there has ever done.

He analyzes all the data for you, eliminates the guesswork and gives you an accurate recovery score that you can trust and use to improve your fitness.

The Fitness Game-Changer: personalized heart rate training that’s as dynamic as you are

The way heart rate training is done today is outdated and boring. When was the last time you got excited about it?

The current model of using three or five static heart rate zones based on nothing more than your percentage of max heart rate heart rate zones hasn’t changed since the 1980’s.

Morpheus is the first technology ever created in fitness to use an entirely new approach: Dynamic Heart Rate Training. Instead of static, boring zones based on an outdated model, Morpheus gives you three personalized heart rate zones that change each day based on your own recovery and your fitness levels.

Here’s why it makes such a huge different in your results: this new type of training guarantees you’re training intensity every time you train.

This new approach delivers the next level of personalized training and helps you connect your recovery to fitness in a powerful way that was impossible until now.

Train in the Blue Zone and Accelerate Your Recovery

If you've read any of my articles on training, then you know just how important it is to use training as a tool to accelerate recovery. Without Morpheus, you’re forced to guestimate how hard to push yourself to improve recovery without adding fatigue.

Finding the exact right zone to accelerate recovery has never been easy, until now.

Based on your recovery and your fitness levels, Morpheus gives you a targeted blue zone each day. Stay in the blue zone for 20-30 minutes and it’ll help shift your body into the recovery state. This is where your body needs to be to accelerate both your recovery and your fitness.

Get in the Green Zone and Elevate your conditioning

Conditioning is one of the most important parts of fitness not just because it can improve your performance, but because it can save your life. That's why I've spent so much of my career studying conditioning and helping people of all levels improve theirs.

With Morpheus, training to improve conditioning is as simple as ever.

No more confusion about what heart rates to train at, which zone you should be in, or what types of intervals are best.These things can be confusing, frustrating and easy to get wrong.

Now, just keep your heart rate in the green zone and watch your conditioning steadily increase. It really is that easy.

This is because I designed the green zone algorithm around the level of intensity that I’ve found be most effective at improving conditioning. Your conditioning zone changes each day based on your recovery. Even better, it adjusts over time as your fitness increases.

Stop hitting frustrating plateaus. Stop wondering if your conditioning is really improving. Stop worrying about gassing out. The Morpheus Conditioning zone gives you the easiest path to better conditioning and maximum performance.

Watch out for the Red Zone and Avoid Overtraining

One of the most common challenges people face when trying to improve their fitness is knowing where their true limits are. Competition is in our DNA and the intensity-driven mindset has made it more popular than ever to try and push yourself to the brink of exhaustion every time you’re in the gym.

The Morpheus red zone, known as the overload zone, was designed to give you a clear picture of where your limits are each day to help you make sure you don’t push past them.

The truth is that it all comes down to energy.

Spend too much time in the red zone and sooner or later, you’ll get yourself into a recovery debt and your fitness (not to mention your health) will pay the price.

Finding the right balance between training, stress is a key part of avoiding under-recovering, overtraining and the problems that come with them. Morpheus will help you push your body to its limits without going over.

How to Get Morpheus and Watch Your Fitness Improve Faster Than Ever

I created Morpheus to help put all the pieces of your life together in way that connects your life outside the gym to your life inside the gym.

I’ve spent my career studying the science, working with people day in and day out, and exploring the most effective ways to connect all the dots. I can honestly tell you that Morpheus represents the next step forward in fitness technology.
