Get the Most Out of Your Pre-Summer Workouts

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

Garmin Forerunner 405Everyone 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 everytime 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.

Franck Muller at Abt

Friday, November 19th, 2010

If you are one of the 200,000 plus drivers going outbound on I90/94 everyday, you will have noticed our billboard.  Currently we are pleased to advertise luxury time piece manufacturer, Franck Muller.

“The master of complications, he looks at life with a twist” says Tony B. a Time Watch sales representative.  “Everything in a Franck Muller watch is a Franck Muller part.  They even grind their own crystals which is uncommon for watch manufacturers”.  When purchasing a Franck Muller watch you know you have something unique and timeless.

If you are interesting in getting a Franck Muller time piece as a gift or for yourself, stop by our store, or give us a call at 888-228-5800.

The Watch Fair: A Wonderful Time

Monday, October 25th, 2010

The Watch Fair at Abt this weekend was extremely successful.  Hundreds of people came by to search for their perfect time piece and mingle with representatives from high-end manufacturers.  Some of the extremely limited pieces that were brought in were even sold.  “A few of Ball’s beautiful 18karat gold watches were purchased by some thrilled customers”, said Torrice a Watch Store representative.

Other limited pieces on display were Movado’s special line of watches, designed by artist Kenny Scharf.  They are definitely an intriguing, albeit odd design on five specially styled watches. They are so limited only 150 of each was made.

For the full line of our watches and watch accessories, check out our watch homepage.
