Everyone wants to be in tip top shape for summer. Who doesn’t want a lean, toned body to show off at the beach? One of the largest hurdles the average person faces is making time to exercise. The answer to this problem is to train smarter, not harder.
As a certified personal trainer, I’m speaking from experience when I tell you my heart rate watch is my best friend. It lets me know when I’m maximizing my time at the gym, and also when I need to get in gear and push harder. Are you training for endurance? With the Garmin Forerunner Fitness Watch, you can track your progress, load it online wirelessly, or share it with other Forerunner owners. You can set courses, share them and compete timed runs on the same courses with other users. It’s a great way to stay motivated on a run.
If you’re less interested in distance running, and more interested in weight-loss, you can adjust your workout to keep your body burning FAT! By keeping your heartrate in your fat burning zone (target heartrate zone), your body will burn calories from your fat stores, rather than other energy sources.
I use mine every time I hit the gym, or head out for a run through the neighborhood. I track my daily progress and compare it weekly to ensure my fitness program will ultimately get me to my goal.
It’s the perfect way to hold yourself accountable without the added cost of a personal trainer.
