Have a measurement device (heart rate monitor or pedometer) to reveal work levels throughout a fitness regimen.
Whether it is a pedometer, a heart rate monitor, or using the strides per minute indicator on an elliptical, having a fitness device that gives immediate and concrete results of a person’s performance will allow the individual to gauge the intensity of their workout. According to a study by Jago, et al (2006), fitness devices even allowed individuals to workout at higher levels while in competition, thus improving their overall game play performance. At the end of the day, once a person has their exercise goals established, the device can provide insight into a person’s work rate that will enable them reach a higher level of fitness
