"By integrating Polar heart rate monitoring education and technology with NESTA's comprehensive certification programs, trainers and club owners now have an effective way to plan, measure and assess a club member's efforts. This intelligent approach to fitness and weight loss will improve member results, boost retention, and increase club revenues."
