This week we are addressing a very common question we get from members and visitors when they walk into our studio and see the specialized system we have for monitoring everyone’s heart rate during their workout.
Why do we monitor heart rate during your workout?
There are multiple reasons to monitor your heart rate and they all relate to seeing progress in your overall health and well-being.
1) Safety First: Wearing a heart rate monitor while working out allows you and your DAS Clini-Coach to make sure that you’re working within a safe range. If you have a history of heart disease, you want to know what your heart is doing during your workout. Over time, you want to see your heart rate take less time to recover from activity (aka. your heart is getting more efficient).
2) Individual Response: The wonderful thing about monitoring your heart rate is that you learn how your body reacts to diverse types of exercise. Some clients experience increased heart rate with strength training while others heart rates increase more with cardiovascular exercise. At Defy Aging, you’ll also find your heart rate skipping a beat on our “Brain Day” workout filled with challenges for your mind!
3) Body Awareness: Knowing your limits as set by safety first and understanding how your body responds to exercise, combine to give you better body awareness. Why is this important? Awareness allows you to become your own health expert and learn to know just what you need, when you need it.
Our intention is to help you redefine yourself at any age. Using the latest technology to help you move better, feel better and have more energy is how we achieve our goals.
Come join us and see how we incorporate technology into our workouts to keep it fun, interesting and motivating.
