Principle No. 5 of Heart Zones Training is a System.
Once you pick the one that suits you, then you know where you are going to spend time in the heart zones. The KISS Principle (Keep It Simple, Stupid) isn’t easy when we’re talking about all the parts of the whole, then integrating that whole into our lifestyle. Yes, we guarantee that Heart Zones Training will work for you, but maybe we’d better throw another old saying into the mix: “There’s no such thing as a free lunch.” You are going to have to work the plan to make the plan work for you.
But don’t forget that you have a “secret weapon” on your side – a proven methodology hooked to a modern training tool, the heart rate monitor, which together produce results. As your body and mind link with the accurate and reliable information from your monitor, you’re able to achieve the small and the big goals that you want.
This system permits you to effectively integrate the different parts of your lifestyle. Without drifting into metaphysics, Heart Zones Training encourages you to see yourself as a whole person and act accordingly; it’s as much about the mind as it is about the body. You can fret endlessly about which controls which, or you can just watch the two work in unison when the mind and body sides of the fitness equation are in balance.
Balance – that is the secret of HZT, Heart Zones Training. With these five points, you can make Heart Zones Training a fitness lifestyle. The lifestyle offered here can take you to new levels of health, fitness, and performance. For those of us who live the lifestyle, it offers a deep feeling of fulfillment and happiness
