Body fat measurement is a great tool to track both diet and workout program progress. Both dieters and athletes inevitably reach that dreaded plateau where they are no longer gaining or losing weight for a period of time. A quality body composition scale such as the Tanita models, help you see what your body fat level is doing during weight loss or training. Frequently even though you are not losing or gaining weight, you will see your body fat going down, and on some models, your muscle mass going up. This is a great motivational/feedback tool that makes it easier to stick with your program and keep working hard. We have all listed Tanita models in stock, and all ship fast with free UPS shipping! We also (unlike Amazon.com) double-box our Tanita scales, so your scale arrives in new condition.
A quality dietary scale is an important part of any diet or weight loss plan. The ability to accurately determine portion size is a key aspect of controlling calorie intake. We offer a number of dietary scales to fit any budget. All of our scales are durable and easy to clean up. Top of the line models such as the Salter 1400 and Escali Cibo even allow you to input the type of food you are weighing and then gives you complete nutritional info on the food being weighed.

With fall (and cooler temps) just around the corner, it's time to get started with a walking program. The Bodytronics QuickSteps walking program is a simple, yet very effective program to get you walking to a healthier lifestyle. The 20 page QuickSteps manual includes everything you need to get going, plus a logbook to track your progress. Along with one of our great pedometers you will be walking healthy in no time.
We frequently have inquiries about timers that do not make any noise. These timers are frequently used in testing environments such as SAT, LSAT, etc. We have developed a simple and inexpensive timer for this application, the Scholar silent timer. The scholar is a single countdown timer that is quick and easy to set, and makes no alarm noise. If a more powerful timer is needed or if vibrating alert is needed, consider the Control Company 5033 vibrating timer, or Time Now Invisible Clock vibrating super timer. These three silent timing options will fill most testing and noise-sensitive applications.
Polar has just added a great new model to their lineup, the CS300 Cycling Heart Rate Monitor. This new model replaces the venerable S520 as the entry-level model for cycling and cross training. The CS300 is anything but an entry level model, however. It allows you to configure 2 bikes in setup, so you can switch bikes without having to reconfigure your monitor each time. It also allows you to upload your workout data to polarpersonaltrainer.com for detailed review. If cycling is part of your workout routine, make sure to check out the Polar CS300, in stock and shipping now with free 2nd day shipping!
Today is the last day to take advantage of the Polar back to school sale. We just made a large buyout purchase of last years' Omron HEM-609 wrist blood pressure unit. We are offering this unit at an insane price of just $39.95 each! Better buy one before we snap back to our senses :)
Are you a swimmer who would like to monitor your heart rate while swimming? If so, we suggest using a Polar heart rate monitor with the T31 type chest transmitter. The T31 is completely sealed and performs very well in the water. For basic monitoring we suggest a lower-end model like the Polar FS2. For midrange monitoring we suggest the Polar FS6. For high end monitoring we suggest one of the Polar S-Series models, plus the T31 coded transmitter. The Polar Wearlink transmitter can be used in the pool, but it's belt life will suffer.
We are frequently asked which type of blood pressure monitor is the best and/or most accurate. As with most such questions, there are a number of factors to take into consideration when purchasing a blood pressure monitor. We stock two basic types of blood pressure monitors, wrist type and the more traditional arm cuff type. Wrist type monitors are smaller and easier to take with you if you travel. They are equally accurate with the arm cuff type monitors if you follow the use instructions carefully. Wrist type monitors are much more sensitive to arm position, and any arm/wrist movement during measurement can skew your results. The latest wrist models by Omron include a feature that checks the position in relation to heart level to try and eliminate positioning problems, but movement still can be an issue. That being said, the arm cuff designs are the best choice for frequent trouble-free measurements. They are a little larger, but are much easier to use. We highly recommend arm cuff models for most users, unless the smaller size of the wrist model is desired, or if you are able to follow instructions very well and are able to hold still while taking the measurement. The bottom line is that either type of monitor is equally accurate if used as instructed by the manufacturer. For a limited time get 5% off any blood pressure montior over $60.

A quality pedometer is more than just a gadget. Pedometers are an excellent motivational and tracking tool and an invaluable part of any walking program. A quality pedometer will help you track and achieve your goals and motivate you to keep walking by giving you instant feedback on your progress. We have a great deal on the Omron HJ-105 in purple and yellow colors right now. Just $13.95 each (normally $18.99) or just $9.95 each when you buy 5 or more! Perfect for walking clubs or the upcoming holiday season!

Today we would like to talk about a great new product, the PowerGlove Basic strapless heart rate monitor. For years many of our customers have asked for a strapless heart rate monitor that gives an accurate and reliable continuous readout. There really has not been a viable solution until now. The PowerGlove that we offer is only available at Bodytronics, and has one simple feature - Continuous display of heart rate. No confusing operation, no extra modes - just put it on, turn it on, and go. This unit is perfect for recovering heart patients who still have a painful scar and can't wear a heart monitor with a strap. In our testing the PowerGlove tracked very reliably and was comfortable to wear during most any exercise. The PowerGlove has an internal rechargeable battery pack that powers the unit for about 8 hours on a charge. A wall charger is included, so you never need to buy batteries. For a limited time use coupon code GOPG at checkout for $5 off the PowerGlove!
