Use a Heart Rate Monitor

A Great Way To Make Exercise More Effective

For the past 20 plus years people have come to train with us. Almost everyone wants to lose fat and tone up. A heart rate monitor (HRM) can to help you reach your goals. You can see what your pulse rate is by looking at the readout on your wrist. This keeps you accountable and makes your workout not only safe but more precise and effective. You don’t want to work too hard, but you want to make sure you are putting in enough effort. A heart rate monitor is a useful tool to find this “sweet spot” of heartbeats per minute. Most people who have never worked out are amazed at how little they need to do to get “aerobic”. We’ve proven that you don’t need to overtrain to get results. Clients who find the right balance find it easier to stick with a program.

Don’t worry about figuring out your target zone. Every heart monitor comes with a simple chart so you don’t need to do any math. You can spend about $40 or $400 and the difference is mainly bells and whistles. All you need is a simple design that is easy and quick to set up and get going. Chest strap models are the most reliable. Any good heart rate monitor can provide you with real time feedback to help you work out smarter and better.
