I was very excited to be given the opportunity to try out the Pear mobile device through my relationship with FitFluential. I've been familiar with the Pear product for nearly a year now, after signing up for Rock n Roll Marathon Series, St. Pete and New Orleans. Pear is a mobile heart rate monitor that works with an app for iPhone 4s and iPhone 5. You strap the heart rate around your chest and it communicates by bluetooth to your virtual coach on whichever workout plan you select, from running to spinning and strength training. It has smart training systems that coach you in real-time, creating the ultimate workout experience, inspiring you to reach your goals.
My very first run with Pear reading my heart rate didn't go so well. I was told quite often that I was above zone 2 and learned very quick that I do not run in the correct heart rate for training. It's no wonder I get over heated and dizzy. The zone I was supposed to be in is shaded blue and the dark blue line is my heart rate.
Along with the 26.2 starter plan, I also received Bodyweight burn 1, a workout that can be done anywhere, anytime. The second workout is Tread N Shed, a workout that is done with a treadmill and dumbbells. These workouts use the HIIT protocol and are geared for intermediate to advanced fitness levels. I haven't had an opportunity to check either of those plans out yet but will report back as soon as I have done so. After reading about both, I feel they will be great bridal bootcamp workouts!
