LOVE the gym!

Hi! I just joined a gym last week and I am loving it! I feel amazing after and look forward to it all day. I was worried about hurting my shoulder so I had put it off for a while but after getting the okay from my therapist I started and am so glad I did!I have seen a few posts where HRM are mentioned. Should I get one? If so does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

    If you are really focusing on the calories you consume and the calories you burn, then yes, you should get one, or, just learn from my and others' HRMs that the machines at the gym are about 15-20% overestimtaing the loss.... I have the polar f6... its about 100 bucks but I got mine brand new on ebay for 70 and it was SOOOOOO worth it!

    I agree with Alina, the Polar F6 is awesome. I got it for $80 at a sports store when it was on sale, but it retails for $100. I've found that most machines overestimate, but when I do other things on the treadmill (skipping, side shuffles, non-running activities) the machine underestimates. It's a great investment.
