Glen Fitness Studio (GFS) Hearts You

As Valentine’s Day approaches we see the image of the heart everywhere. This familiar symbol which first appeared in the 1200s adorns modern day cards, candy boxes and store displays.

However, the iconic two-lobed shape hardly resembles the real human heart. Heart rate recovery (HRR) is a useful index of a real human heart’s fitness. You certainly realize your heart beats more quickly when you exercise, but are you aware of the time it takes to return to its normal rate of beating?

Kelli and I would like to explore and document your personal HRR. We will establish your baseline heart rate and will occasionally repeat tests to monitor your heart health. Although your Valentine may set your heart a- flutter, GFS will set your cardiovascular well-being on a more stable course!
