Here is a quick walk-through of how to get started with the Firstbeat Sports Cloud:
Registering your account
You will receive a welcome email from Firstbeat titled "Welcome to Firstbeat Sports". This includes guidance on how to register to Firstbeat Sports and how to log in.
Clicking the Register button in the welcome email opens your web browser.
This is what the password registration page looks like:
You can choose the language for this page using the language selection flag in the top right corner. Available languages are English, Finnish, French, Spanish, German, and Portuguese.
Create a strong password to protect your data. Remember, it must be at least 10 characters long.
Once the password has been entered twice, click Save. The site will confirm your registration and you can proceed to the login page.
When you are logging in to the Firstbeat Sports Cloud for the first time it will walk you through the steps to get started. This is called the Setup Wizard.
There are five steps to get started:
- Personal information
- Default settings
- Team management
- Coach accounts
STEP 1: Personal information
Enter your personal information, including; name, email, preferred language, and time zone. You can also add a photo to your profile. Remember to click the Save button if you have made changes!
STEP 2: Default settings
Select the default units and HR zones you want to use during real-time monitoring.
STEP 3: Team management
Create your team and add the athletes to your account and to the team. Click the Create new button to start creating your team.
Give your team a suitable name and click OK to proceed and start adding the athletes. Athlete profiles need to be added one by one. Add athletes by clicking the Athlete management button.
Enter at least the required information. To add a new athlete profile, click the Save and add new button.
If you want to add a picture click the empty image above the required information.
STEP 4: Coach accounts
Add other coaches to your account so they can view and access team data. Click the Add new coach button to add another coach.
If you do not want to add other coaches, skip this step by clicking the Next button.
STEP 5: Download
Download the Firstbeat Sports: Coach app to your iPad, or Firstbeat Sports Monitor software to your computer.
This step will automatically recognize the computer operating system. In this example image the computer OS was Windows so the red Download for... button says "Windows". If you have a Mac, the red button would say Download for Mac.
To install the Firstbeat Sports Monitor software, follow the on-screen instructions. Once the Firstbeat Sports Monitor is installed successfully you can log in and the data you just entered into the Firstbeat Sports Cloud will sync to the Firstbeat Sports Monitor. Then you're all set for the monitoring!
Note that you can always skip the whole setup wizard and do the steps one by one. If you want to start the setup wizard later you can do that by selecting the profile menu from the top right corner and from there the Setup wizard button.
