Textronics offers online Heart Rate Monitor Coaching
Feb '08
Applying heart rate to fitness training just got easier. NuMetrex, the brand that offers a comfortable alternative to those hard plastic chest straps, is now offering free online coaching to help people apply heart rate data to their fitness efforts.

Whether you're training for a marathon, trying to lose weight, or simply looking to improve your fitness level, a heart rate monitor can be a valuable tool… if you know how to use it.

“There are typically two hurdles people face when it comes to using a heart rate monitor. The first is comfort, which we overcame by knitting textile sensors directly into our NuMetrex fitness apparel,” said Textronics Marketing Director Meg Burich. “The second is understanding how to apply heart rate to your workout. ”

To overcome this challenge, Textronics has tapped two of the nation's top heart rate training experts to provide tips, advice and sample workouts on its free, online Coach's Corner.

• Dr. Alinda Perrine is a fitness authority, author, presenter and master trainer who has completed numerous marathons, endurance cycling races and a cross-country bicycle tour.

• Dr. Ray Browning is a fitness expert and Ph.D. Research Instructor at the Center for Human Nutrition at UC Denver. During his career as a professional triathlete, he captured seven Ironman titles and won the 1993 Winter Triathlon World Championships.
