Why train with a heart rate monitor?
Polar heart rate monitors help your clients and employees lose weight, improve fitness and stay healthy while safely working out. As we all recognize - going harder and faster isn’t always the best way to reach fitness goals.
Individuals need to listen to their heart and train at the right intensity. Exercise can be divided into different intensity zones, each with a corresponding health and fitness benefit. With a Polar heart rate monitor, individuals always know which zone they are in with a quick glance at their wrist.
Target Heart Rate Calculator
To calculate your maximum heart rate, subtract 220 minus your age (220 - Your Age = Maximum heart rate.) For example, a 30 year old’s maximum heart rate = 220 - 30 = 190
Level 3 moderate range = 190 x 70-80% = 133-152bpm
