I schedule my workouts like I schedule any important appointment in my life. They are non-negotiable unless an emergency arises, like one of my children (or me!!) is sick. I belong to a pretty awesome CrossFit Box; CrossFit En Fuego, and I prefer to workout there, but there are times when I will run or cycle outdoors as training for events or when I work out at home because of sick kids or conflicting schedules.
The reason I show you my calorie burn is because I heart rate train. Why should a person train with a heart rate monitor? The best way to improve your fitness and to see results is to train at the right intensity. So with a heart rate monitor, you can make sure you’re not over or under training, and make each session count. I use a Polar HRM as my training partner and I have evidence of my progress – which motivates me each and every time I train.
