As an athlete, you already know the importance of staying physically active, but what you may not realize is that there are fitness accessories available to help you use your workout time more wisely and effectively.
Heading into a workout without a goal is as useful as planning a vacation without a destination in mind. At the same time, when you're working out regularly, it's hard to keep track of what you hope to achieve with each individual workout when your long-term goal is first and foremost on your mind. That's where fitness accessories come in.
Items like GPS units, heart rate monitors, pedometers, foam rollers, massagers, sandbags, sport watches, stopwatches, and even water bottles can keep your workout on track by giving workout reminders, aiding with recovery, delivering pace and distance data, tracking heart rate and calories burned, estimating fat-burning percentages, and keeping you hydrated.
