“Other than I can’t see my Heart Rate Monitor… I love watching videos in your Spinning class John!”

I’ve become a huge fan of using video in my classes and using Zone based Heart Rate training to guide intensity.  But a dark room that’s conducive to watching an Epic Planet or Global Ride DVD makes reading a monitor, without a constant back-light, a real hassle.

Spinning cycling class Blink heart rate monitor

I never leave home without my Blink

Enter my new favorite fitness toy! A Blink Heart Rate Monitor

It shows three different colors (Blue – Yellow – Red) that correspond to a Two Threshold / Three Zone Heart Rate training system. I have a lot of information about 2T/3Z if you follow that link.

It’s as low tech as you can get… Just the Time, HR and the blinking light so you can see your training zone in complete darkness.
