No matter what your fitness goals are, the best way to achieve them is to train at the right intensity. Training at the correct intensity leads to better results, sufficient recovery, and more enjoyable exercise. Active Fitness and Leisure, the Carlton Hotel’s new state-of-the-art fitness facility, exclusively offers the Suunto Software heart monitoring system, ensuring that clients get the most from their fitness regime.
“Suunto Software records your activities, be it in the gymnasium or one of our classes, while allowing you to visually keep track of your progress on a screen projected in front of you,” explained Therese O'Mahony, manager of Active Fitness and Leisure. “Suunto monitor displays and records heart rate data in real time during the exercise. This is extremely beneficial to those taking our classes as it allows the instructor to see those who are not pushing themselves or those who are pushing too hard so they can work with them in getting their heart rate to the right level.”
When your session is finished Suunto automatically emails a detailed report of your training session straight to your inbox.
Using Suunto could not be easier. Register at reception, purchase a heart rate belt, and start training. Whether you are part of a team or training individually, Suunto offers an accurate assessment of how you are training, ensuring you get the maximum from your session.
Research has shown that getting your heart rate up to a certain level for a certain amount of time is key for making sure you and your heart get a good workout. “The Suunto monitor software offers three ways of displaying the heart rate during exercise,” Therese O'Mahony added. “It shows the value as beats per minute, percentage of maximal heart rate, or as a continuous graph from the start of the exercise. It also records the heart rate graph for viewing after exercise which will allow you to compare to previous sessions.”
Along with the installation of Suunto software, Active Fitness and Leisure has undergone a total refurbishment to all areas of the club. The gym now boasts 50 pieces of top of the range cardiovascular and resistance equipment along with a state of the art aerobics studio, a luxurious 20 metre lifeguard attended swimming pool, sauna, steam room, and Jacuzzi. Membership rates have been reduced and family membership at Active Fitness and Leisure at the Carlton also includes three children.
