Heart Rate Monitoring

Polar heart rate monitors show your students the effect of exercise on their body. This means you can objectively assess students of all abilities while safely motivating them with instant feedback on their activity. Ultimately, heart rate monitoring ensures all students are exercising at the right intensity, helping them reach their full potential.

Benefits of heart rate monitoring:

  • Helps you teach your students about the health benefits of exercising in the different target zones
  • Lets you give your class accurate, real-time feedback on any exercise
  • Make every exercise individual, letting each student work out at a level that is perfect for them
  • Allow personalized teaching and feedback with fair grading based on individual effort

Exercising in the right heart rate zone

While heart rate monitors help your students find their personal exercise intensity, they also tell them what zone they should be exercising in for optimum results. Target heart rates and heart rate zones are calculated as percentages of the maximum heart rate (HRmax) and are displayed on screen to keep your students on the right track.
