Gadgets to enhance your workout
You may not “need” portable music, or a clip-on device that counts your steps, but let’s face it, some the motivation that can be gained by knowing the exact specifics of your body composition.
Music to the ears
Music is the perfect compliment to cardio. With an MP3 player you can have your favorite beats at your fingertips whether you’re on a treadmill at the gym or running in the great outdoors. But before you go buying the first (or cheapest) player you come across there are some important things to consider.
If it takes a bit more than music to keep you motivated, you’re not out of luck. For as little as $10 (you can sometimes even find them for free) a pedometer will track the number of steps you take each day. It’s a helpful little tool that can keep you on track. And if you desire to know exactly how hard you’re working so you can burn optimal calories or increase your cardio capacity, a heart rate monitor is exactly what you need.
