Want to end the summer healthy and feeling fit? The perfect start is by getting a heart rate monitor to track your progress.
My husband and I work out pretty religiously and have said for years we need to get heart rate monitors, but have yet to do so. Why have we waited? They seemed pricey and I never felt the “real” need for one.
However, through recent studies we have learned the importance of being able to monitor your heart rate. First, a low resting heart rate is a good indicator of overall body health and fitness. Additionally, training your body to burn fats as its primary energy source (as opposed to sugar sources which are not as efficient and are needed for other important bodily functions) has proven to be extremely beneficial during exercise and for general health. In order to re-train your body to burn fat as its primary fuel you must exercise within a specific “fat-burning” heart rate zone. The reason is simply that when your heart is working too hard it goes into ‘emergency mode” and burns the quickest and easiest form of fuel, sugar.
Ever since we’ve been enlightened with the importance of heart rate monitoring we’ve been using the Beets Blu Wireless Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor which does an excellent job of simply and clearly monitoring and tracking heart-rate levels.
Beets Blu Wireless Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor works around your chest (for the most accurate readings) and connects to your phone via Bluetooth. The Beets Blu app is simple to use and can be adjusted to fit your individual fitness needs and goals. Settings can be adjusted to Endurance, Running, Walking, Fat-Loss and will alert you when you go over or under your target heart rate zones. It also documents how many calories you have burned, workout history and will sync to your favorite running apps. Your fitness routine is much more controlled when wearing the Beets Blu Wireless Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor!
