CHC Mens 1st @ SMART Training Gym Churchtown
By Sarah Murtagh
CHC Men 1st were invited down to try out some new technology SMART Training Gym Churchtown has just introduced into the Gym. SMART Training is owned by fellow CHC mens 1st player - Jonny Bruton.
Heart rate monitors were secured on to each member of the 1st and they were able to watch their hear rate rise and fall in real time during the workout! This technology is being introduced to SMART Training classes and Personal Training from September onward. Because your effort is measured by your heart, everyone can compete no matter their fitness level. This tech tracks fitness effort, rather than less accurate numbers like calories. The result is a tailored workout where an unfit person could do better in the rating system than an athlete, if they put in more effort.
Unlike other wearable technologies, this technology is also accurate no matter what exercise you choose. The tracker works in any situation, be it running, cycling, track events or even in team sports like Hockey. Its also extremely accurate measuring 99.4% EKG accuracy.
