There’s no denying it; the advancement of technology and online media is changing the way that we exercise, but going back to basics may be just what we need?
Just a decade ago, if you went for a run that is exactly what you did. Nowadays, going for a run entails strapping on your newest fitness gadget (wristbands seem to be on trend right now), putting on your carefully selected music playlist, followed by some actual running and then back home to upload your workout efforts onto a social platform – sounds great!
We believe keeping records of your workouts is an excellent way to see how you are progressing and knowing that you have friends and family tracking you online and supporting your goals are a fantastic motivator.
Although does concentrating your mind on your heart rate, running pace and favourite tune stop you from being able to truly enjoy exercising, from feeling the rush of endorphins, hearing that satisfying beat of your feet on the ground?
At Blue Harbour Health Club & Spa, we have the equipment and know-how to help you use both technology and the ‘basics’ to track your progress without being invasive.
Our scales not only measure weight but body fat percentage, the cardio machines are capable of taking your heart rate, or we have a heart rate monitor for free style training and free weight exercises. Plus we can recommend some great ‘tech-free’ fitness programmes you can try that will capture how well you perform certain exercises.
But for those of you who really have your heart set on being the fittest person on your newsfeed, there is a wealth of fitness apps we can recommend too!
To find out more or to look in to your fitness options drop by and see us at Blue Harbour Health Club and Spa.
Until next week… happy training!
