My latest obsession is the mio alpha “high performance heart rate sport watch”! The mio is a great fitness performance and tracking tool. It is different from others in the market because you don’t need an uncomfortable chest strap. The monitor sits comfortably on your wrist like a watch and connects via bluetooth to your mobile device.
With this I’m able to complete effective heart rate training, interval training, save my workouts and track my progress. I also ask my private training clients and cycling students to wear the mio during their session to optimize their workout.
It’s a lot of fun to see the difference between a traditional resistance training workout vs. a circuit style resistance training workout. Obviously the circuit style workout burns more calories and works when you are trying to drop some extra pounds.
The mio connects to almost a slew of apps to help you track your performance and reach your fitness goals.
