MORE INFORMATION


xperts agree, the heart is the most important muscle in the body and like all muscles, must be exercised regularly to remain strong and efficient. How do you determine when you're exercising your heart safely and effectively? Fortunately, your heart provides the key information needed for determining the safety and effectiveness of your personal fitness program.

Heart rate, which is reflected in a single number (beats per minute) provides a constant report on your body. How hard or easy you're exercising. How fast you're using energy. Too low a heart rate and your body reaps little to no benefits. Too high a heart rate and you'll tire too quickly and run the risk of frustration and injury.

YOUR POLAR HEART RATE MONITOR WILL HELP YOU LEAD A HEALTHIER AND LONGER LIFE. THE HEART RATE MONITOR LETS YOU ADJUST YOUR INTENSITY, SO YOU DON'T WASTE ANY WORKOUT TIME. THIS WILL HELP YOU GET THE MAXIMUM BENEFITS FROM EXERCISE.

 

THERE ARE THREE COMPONENTS TO A GOOD EXERCISE PROGRAM:
AEROBIC ACTIVITY, STRENGTH TRAINING AND FLEXIBILITY EXERCISES

 

Why use a heart rate monitor?

By monitoring heart rate (HR), the simple observation that the harder we exercise, the faster our heart beats is put to good use. Professional athletes and amateurs alike have for decades been relying on the information provided by their heart rate monitor for the following reasons:

A HR monitor is like a rev counter, giving a precise measurement of exercise intensity.

Training at your own pace is possible with a HR monitor.
Direct measurement of HR during exercise is the most accurate way to gauge performance.

Progress can be monitored and measured, increasing motivation. It maximizes the benefits of exercise in a limited time. It introduces objective observation. Are you on the right track? Are you improving?

It is a tool for regulating frequency and intensity of workouts. Because of the feedback it provides, HR monitoring is an ideal training partner.

Everywhere you go people seem to be talking about exercise. The health benefits of physical activity have been celebrated since the earliest days of recorded history, but only a quarter of all adults get the recommended amount of activity. That's at least 30 minutes of moderate activity five or more times a week. Even worse, close to a third of adults are completely sedentary. That is why it is so important to monitor your heart rate while exercising.

Exercise benefits not only your body, but your mind as well. Aerobic exercise prompts the release of mood-lifting hormones, which promotes a sense of well-being. The repetitive cycle of muscle contraction and release that takes place in yoga or in aerobic pursuits such as walking, jogging, cycling, swimming or running increases the level of the brain chemical serotonin, which combats negative feelings. Indeed, there's reason to believe that physical activity might have a positive impact on a number of mental illnesses, including sleep and eating disorders, dementia, substance abuse, depression and anxiety disorder.

The benefits of exercise may sound too good to be true. But decades of solid science confirm that exercise improves your health and can extend your life. Adding as little as half an hour of moderately intense physical activity to your day can help you avoid serious ailments, including heart disease, diabetes, depression and several types of cancer, in particular breast and colon cancers. In addition to the disease-fighting properties of exercise, regular activity can improve the quality of your life and your general well-being in many other ways, such as helping you sleep better, reduce stress, control your weight, brighten your mood and improve your sex life.

Deciding to start an exercise program is a move in the right direction. But getting started is not always as easy as it sounds. Household activities such as sweeping or leisure pursuits like gardening can be a good way to get you moving. But there's no reason to stop there. Coupling this kind of activity with regular exercise will add to your total energy expenditure and your overall conditioning. The best fitness program will include regular exercise as well as physical activity. Your heart rate will help you achieve your goals.

A good exercise program has three components: aerobics activity, strength training, and flexibility exercises. Each of these benefits your body in a different way. Aerobic activity improves your heart health, lowers your risk for numerous diseases, and can lengthen life span. Resistance exercises strengthen your muscles and bones and improve your body's ratio of lean muscle mass to fat. Flexibility training keeps your muscles stretched and your joints limber. Once these three bases are covered with a basic routine, you can think about enhancing your exercising program with other sort of activity. Structured exercise and daily activity will help guide you through starting and maintaining an exercise program that suits your abilities and lifestyle. A heart monitor will safely and efficiently guide you to your goals. A Polar heart rate monitor allows you to monitor your heart rate while you exercise and is an important part of any effective training program and the personal solution for anyone interested in losing weight, improving fitness or reaching their athletic best. The Polar monitor is the number one brand in the world.
