Posted on September 14, 2015 at 2:15 PM

So recently  I have been urged by my clients and friends to try a fitbit.  I have seen them popping up everywhere and find them very intriguing.  I have much experience with regular pedometers.  Non-techy.  The ones you wear on your hip and have to measure your stide length to make sure it counts your steps accurately.  I am very definitely a fan of getting your 10,000 steps a day in.  I think that is important regardless of your fit level or goal.  I have been part of a few programs where we have given out the old school pedometers, taught how to use them and even provided challenges.

The fitbit is a little different.  And I like it.  I did not really get much for instructions.  You just turn it on and sync it to your device and off you go.  I have been using the fitbit charge which will track my steps, milage, average calories burned, flights of stairs, active minutes, sleep and water/nutrition.  I find it to be accurate and handy.  Except that when you meet your goals the watch looking device will vibrate, when I am not expecting it and while I am at the store or where ever, my eyes get a little huge wondering why my watch is angry with me.  Then I look and see that I made a goal and immediately I am excited again.

The best part--the fitbit will sync to my dotFit page!  This means you too can use fun gagets that require you to log info less will show me what you have been doing and I can still provide your individualized program.  Its difficult to create a safe and healthy program to everyone when there are many unknowns.  That's where I come in.  I will know your goal, fitness level and any past or current injury.  Your workout will be perfect!  So once a day you look at your workout and get it done and once a day you sync your fitbit to your page and vola...You are making your goals and feel great too.

Now I would also recommend the fitbit HR.  The charge that I use does not track heart rate.  I not only find heart rate to be very important, but I do like to create cardio programs for you that include heart rate.  Your resting heart rate will tell you in general how effecient your heart is working.  The fewer beats per minute, the healthier your heart is.  It should be between 60-75 beats per minute.  If you are a competitive elite athlete you might be down to 45-60 beats per minutes.  This means that your heart can pump out enough blood with one pump to all parts of your body well.  If you can't get enough blood out per pump then you have to pump more which can over time lead to an enlarged heart.  So keep an eye on your over all resting heart rate and if it starts to regularly go down, you are NOT dying!

Also a good cardio program is based on your heart rate recovery time.   The less time it takes for your heart rate to come back down after an intense bout of exercise is good.  So my workouts vary quite a bit, but includes you watching your heart rate.  This is great for weight loss as well as sport specific training.  Each sport has its own demands and this program can accomodate that.
