Trakrs & Why They Are so Important
Heart rate monitor tracking technology has revolutionized the fitness industry and has become an essential tool for anyone looking to improve their workout results. Whether you’re a professional athlete, a weekend warrior, or just starting to get into fitness, heart rate monitoring can provide you with valuable information that can help you achieve your fitness goals faster and more effectively. A review published in the European Journal of Sport Science found that heart rate monitoring can help improve the effectiveness of cardiovascular training (Gant et al., 2013). The authors concluded that heart rate monitoring can provide valuable information on how hard the body is working during exercise and help individuals optimize their workout for better results.
At Twisted Cycle, our Trakrs measure the number of times your heart beats per minute, giving you a clear understanding of how hard your body is working during a workout. This information can help you determine the intensity of your workout and make adjustments to get the most out of your exercise routine. By monitoring your heart rate, you can ensure that you are working at the right level of intensity for your goals, whether that’s to build endurance, increase strength, or burn fat. Don’t know what your heart rate is supposed to be when working out? Don’t worry! Our Trainers are with you every step of the way! Telling you when to push and when to take breaks is their specialty.
One of the most significant benefits of out Trakrs is the ability to track your progress over time in the Twisted Cycle App. By consistently measuring your heart rate during your workout, you can see how your body responds to different levels of intensity and make adjustments to your routine as needed. This can help you stay motivated and on track toward your fitness goals. A study published in the Journal of Sports Sciences found that using a heart rate monitor can help increase motivation and adherence to exercise (Matsumura et al., 2019). The authors found that the ability to track progress and see results through heart rate monitoring can increase motivation and help individuals stick to their workout routine.
