FORMULA

We take into account your effort through our HR Factor, your height and weight through our BMI Factor (this number is usually unkind to stocky people, but is to your advantage here ;)) and apply these factors to your actual time.

In short, actual time (in seconds) X BMI Factor X HR Factor = Weighted Time.
