My first Polor monitor came with my Nordic Trak back in 1997. It was built into the unit and I discovered a whole new way to monitor my heart, something I never did before. I always "felt" I must be working out hard if I sweat or "felt" like I was. Let me tell you now, both of those are deceiving and you cannot base any real workout on that criteria. At that time I was 210 pounds and my BP was 142/96, I was 45 years old. Within one year I was in the 190's but more importantly my BP was going down. Then in 2000 my doctor explained to me the benefits of cardio circut training so I then went into a circut training program on my Nordic Trac for a couple of more years. I knew at that time the value of this heart rate monitor but I was chained to this machine. So in 2005 I purchased my Polar F11 which I still use today. After studying all the products Polar has to offer this unit was the best for what I enjoyed to do. I purchased the Polar beca! use of its history and the reputation in quality that stood before them. I am now 59 years old, my weight is 184 pounds with a body fat % of 17 and resting heart rate of 55, and a consistant Polar Index Vo2max of 42-43 which is at the high end for a guy my age. I have completed two sessions of P90X and currently doing the P90X PLUS routine. Let me tell you, I could never get trough any of these intense workouts without my Polar monitor! I tell peopel it is the speedometer or tachometer of your heart and have you ever tried to drive a vehicle without one? Almost impossible. I also am a personal tainer. This is one of the very first things I reccomend to any client after explaining to them the benefits of monitoring that fantastic pumping machine God has blessed us with! Thank you Polar for helping me regain my health and maintain it for years!
