Wearable fitness technology, heart rate tracking devices used by Dennis Romat Fitness


Take your fitness training to the next level using data driven, wearable technology that biometrically tracks your workouts producing better results.


Personal training and wearable technology have become increasingly intertwined in recent years, with wearable devices playing a significant role in enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of personal training programs. 


At Dennis Romatz Fitness, we have all of our personal training clients (including our online fitness coaching clients) and performance athletes wear heart rate straps, watches or similar to biometrically track their markers to progressively scale their workouts.  Our clients all benefit from utilizing wearable fitness technology, thus we promote their use in all of our fitness training programs.


Here are some ways in which wearable technology is impacting personal training:

  1. Activity Tracking: Wearable devices, such as fitness trackers and smartwatches, can accurately track various metrics like steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, and active minutes. Personal trainers can use this data to gain insights into their clients' daily activity levels and patterns. It helps trainers assess their clients' baseline fitness, set realistic goals, and track progress over time.

  2. Heart Rate Monitoring: Many wearable devices offer continuous heart rate monitoring during workouts and throughout the day. This information is valuable for personal trainers as it provides insights into their clients' exercise intensity, cardiovascular fitness, and recovery. Trainers can use heart rate data to design targeted training programs, monitor exertion levels, and ensure clients are working within their desired training zones.

  3. Exercise Form and Technique: Some wearable devices have built-in sensors or use motion tracking technology to analyze exercise form and technique. They can provide real-time feedback on movement patterns, posture, and range of motion. Personal trainers can utilize this feedback to correct form, reduce the risk of injury, and optimize exercise performance.

  4. Biometric Data Analysis: Wearable technology generates a wealth of data that can be analyzed to provide insights into clients' health and fitness. Personal trainers can examine trends in sleep patterns, resting heart rate, stress levels, and recovery metrics to assess overall well-being and adjust training programs accordingly. This data-driven approach allows trainers to personalize workouts and optimize performance.

  5. Remote Monitoring and Accountability: Wearable technology enables personal trainers to remotely monitor their clients' progress and provide feedback and guidance. Trainers can review workout data, offer encouragement, and make adjustments to training programs through online platforms or mobile apps. This helps to keep clients accountable and motivated, even when they are not physically present with their trainer.

  6. Performance Optimization: Wearable devices can assist in optimizing athletic performance by tracking specific performance metrics. For example, GPS-enabled wearables can provide detailed information on running pace, distance, and elevation, allowing trainers to analyze performance and tailor training programs accordingly. This data can be especially valuable for athletes looking to improve specific aspects of their performance.

Polar H10 Heart Rate Sensor


At Dennis Romatz Fitness, training a lot of client means getting to use a lot of different brands of heart rate monitors, strap, watches and tracking devices.

The heart rate monitor that we will always prefer to use and recommend is the Polar H10 Heart Rate Sensor.  We just find that, by far, this particular tracking deice out-performs all other devices when t comes to tracking and providing data and metrics in real time.  Being able to see heart rate fluctuations quickly allows myself and my team to more accurately make changes to intensities in order for our client to train at our desired target heart rates.  Example of this is when I train for weight loss.  Weight loss utilizing using stored body fat as a fuel requires us to train in a lower ventricular (heart rate)  zone...approximately 60% - 70% of maximum heart rate (MHR) is perfect because at this particular heart rate, my clients with burn about 520 calories (Kcals) in a 60 minute training session.  Using the Polar H10, I can peg my clients heart rate at 60% - 70% of their MHR for 60 minutes and achieve the desired results every time...guaranteed.  And this is why I do not train any client without it!
