Polar FT7 Heart Rate Monitor Giveaway.
Right after Christmas my friend Michelle came to visit and we were having a big discussion about all things exercise and diet. And, ironically, we continued to outline our fitness and health objectives through a dinner of chips, queso, and fajitas. But Michelle had a lot of great tips because fitness is kind of her hobby. As opposed to me. Fitness is more like my job that I don’t like but have to go to anyway because I enjoy food. Anyway, I told her that I was going to be reviewing and giving away various fitness and health related items on the blog after the first of the year. And she immediately said, “Oh! Are they sending you a Polar watch?” I said, “What is this Polar watch you speak of?” So she showed me hers because she is disciplined and doesn’t leave home without her running shoes and workout accessories. And she explained that it monitors your heart rate, tracks your workout, tells you how many calories you burn, and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, lets you know when you’re burning fat. I’m all about the burning fat. So I spent the last few days of December desperately hoping for this Polar watch that I’d never even heard of but now felt like my life wouldn’t be complete without it. You can imagine my excitement when the nice UPS man knocked on our door one day in mid-January and delivered my very own Polar FT7 heart rate monitor.
It comes with a strap that you wear around your chest while you work out and I worried it might annoy me, but it’s actually comfortable and I got used to it without any problems. Of course I was highly motivated by the need to know how many calories I was burning and if my fat was melting away. Sadly, I usually feel like a run should burn at least 1500 calories and that is not the case. And the Polar heart rate monitor confirms this. But I love it anyway because it helps me make the most of my workout and the EnergyPointer feature lets me know when exercise shifts from fat burning to fitness improvement. I can’t recommend it enough. It’s everything I hoped and dreamed it would be. Now if I could just figure out how to burn 1500 calories during my morning run.
