I can see your future…

…and in it you’re wearing a Polar FT4 heart rate monitor.

If you haven’t entered my giveaway to WIN a FREE heart rate monitor then today’s your lucky day! This is the same monitor that I wear for all of my workouts, and it’s the greatest thing since … well, I don’t eat sliced bread, but you get the idea.

Click here to enter, and remember, you earn extra chances to win each time you SHARE the good news with your family and friends on Twitter and Facebook.

I want YOU to win, so ENTER now!

If you missed last week’s video on the benefits of using a heart rate monitor, find it below. Calculating your personal “fat-burning zone” is simple and, once you know what it is, your heart rate monitor can help you stay in the zone.

As we observe Memorial Day this weekend, we honor those who died in service of our country. And as tempting as it may be to sleep in on Monday and take it easy, getting in a workout is gonna make you feel so much better. Because – as I always say…

Have a happy, healthy week!
