It’s 2017 and, like many, you have probably started working on some New Year resolutions. One of the most common resolutions is usually getting into shape and living a healthier lifestyle. If this is one of your resolutions, it might be time for you to give swimming a try, if you haven’t already.
Swimming is a great way to lose weight, get stronger and become more flexible. It’s a whole body work out that helps almost every part of your body including your mind, by relieving stress!
A great way to keep on track with your healthy new year’s resolution, through swimming, is to invest in a Swimming Tracker. Like other fitness trackers, a swimming tracker uses a heart rate monitor to detect your heart rate to evaluate your fitness.
And while a swimming tracker may not be the first thing you think of when you jump in the pool, they definitely have their benefits.
Firstly, they help you track your exercise without you having to do it yourself. This means you can concentrate on your routineor listen to your favourite music (which is made possible with waterproof headphones). You don’t need to carry around a journal to keep note of your workout, you can just enjoy it.
It will also make you accountable. Your tracker will let you know whether or not you are pushing yourself and will keep detailed records of your workout, showing you how you are doing in comparison to other sessions. Even better, if you and your friends use similar trackers, you may have the ability to challenge each other.
This is great if you are the type of person who likes a little friendly competition. You can compete against one another, pushing each other to your maximum potential, without having to try and find a time in your schedule when you can both head to the pool.
A swimming tracker can also help optimize your workout and, if you have health issues that constrain your workout, you can ensure you are getting the most from your swim, without over-exerting yourself.
Lastly, if your tracker can monitor your workouts over time, as most good trackers can, it’s a great way to remind yourself that you are winning the fitness challenge - even if you haven’t reached your ultimate goal.
Depending on the type of tracker you buy, it will let you monitor less obvious factors of success, such as stamina, return to your resting heart rate, stroke length/count, speed and lap count. And any sign of positive change can have a big effect on the likelihood of you completing your resolutions.
