Heart Rate Monitor Advice From Fitsense Sports

If you’re serious about improving your fitness, make a heart rate monitor part of your training programme.

For many people, exercise and training is an essential part of life. Whether you aspire to be a professional athlete, or you’re training for tough amateur events, you need to have a programme that helps you to achieve your goals safely. This includes the right diet, a personalised training plan and top-quality equipment such as a heart rate monitor.

Training and the Heart Rate Monitor

What benefits will you get from using a heart rate monitor? Used by elite athletes to ensure they are working at the best levels for them, there are a number of heart rate monitors on the market that can help you to improve your training. Anyone who is into exercise knows that a routine that works for one person won’t necessarily work for another. It’s important that you formulate a training plan that takes your personal health and fitness into account so that you’re pushing yourself at the right level.

A heart rate monitor will allow you to:

  • Monitor whilst training – today’s heart rate monitors are lightweight and designed to be used whilst training without compromising your physical requirements. With a simple chest strap and a wrist watch to help you keep an eye on your performance, this is an easy way to make sure you’re working to the best of your ability.
  • Personalise settings – including a heart rate monitor in your routine is all about having control over your training plan. Good quality monitors will allow you to personalise the settings, and change them when necessary as you vary your training programme depending on results.
  • Use for any sport – you don’t have to be a runner to make the most of a heart rate monitor. Many are specifically designed to be multi-disciplinary, so whether you run, ride, swim, climb or play team sports, you can still monitor your personal performance.
  • Download data – serious athletes need to keep track of training and performance data. Try using a heart rate monitor that allows you to download data to your computer, helping you to keep an accurate record of your training programme and its results, building a realistic picture of how your training is progressing.
