Heart rate monitoring can be a great training asset by providing you with an insider’s perspective into your own body’s fitness. Heart rate monitoring allows you to accurately measure your workout intensity, recovery levels and long-term progress giving you clear guidance on how to train and reach your individual goals.
Here are 5 Benefits of Heart Rate Training:
- Helps you control the intensity of your exercise routine.
- Helps you fine-tune your program for the best results.
- Gives you plenty of feedback both during and after a session, teaching you more about your body’s reaction to exercise.
- Helps you see how you’re progressing
- Enables you to track and accurately adjust your training program
TRUE Fitness recognized the power of Heart rate monitoring and patented a revolutionary fitness program known as, HRC Cruise Control™. TRUE HRC Cruise Control™, found on all TRUE treadmills, ellipticals, and exercise bikes, allows you to lock in on your targeted heart rate. Once your target is entered, one touch HRC Cruise Control™ will adjust your workout automatically to maintain your target heart rate for the duration of your workout, just like the cruise control in your car.
TRUE also created a series of programs centered around heart rate monitoring. Check out these 5 HRC programs TRUE Fitness equipment has to offer:
