Watch The Clock: 3 Ways A Watch Can Improve Your Sweat Sesh

We all have those *essential* gym items — headphones, a water bottle, a headband + [one of our personal favorites] a watch! This may seem like a random addition to the list, but a watch is actually a perfect item to help you crush your sweat sesh! You might feel like it really isn’t essential, but trust us when we say it truly helps you stay on track with your fitness + health.


A watch is the perfect way to get the most out of your #FitGoals. Keeping track of your workouts is key when trying to achieve your goals. With a watch, you can record how long your workouts are + slowly increase their time as you progress. How will you know how much to increase your workouts by if you don’t know where you initially started? *You won’t.* A watch is essential for timing HIIT + tabata workouts as well as making sure you’re resting the right amount of time between reps.


Sometimes, you don’t always realize whether you’re working yourself too hard, or not hard enough. Working out too hard can lead to injury, while the opposite will deprive you from reaching your fitness goals. Wearing a watch will help make sure you are right on track with the workouts you are performing. If you’re planning on running a race, you can make sure your pace isn’t too fast [so that you won’t get tired out too early] or too slow [so you can meet your goal!]. Let your watch give you feedback when you’re not too sure how your workout is going so that you can avoid overexerting yourself or depriving yourself of a good sweat sesh!


Some of our favorite posts are transformation pictures — it is great to see how far our fellow CHAARGies have come with their fitness goals. Tracking progress is an important aspect of creating a fitness goal — it is such a *refreshing* feeling to see how far you’ve come since the beginning. An easy way to track your progress is to wear a watch while performing your sweat sesh. Whether you are running, doing HIIT, or any other cardio, you should time how long each session lasts. As you continue these workouts, you will notice you are able to do perform them much longer + by wearing a watch, you will be able to check exactly how much you progressed since the beginning — especially during Fit Plan Fit Tests!

Choosing the right watch might be tricky depending on what you like to do to *sweat it out*, the amount of different kinds there are out there, + how expensive some might be, but don’t worry, we got you covered : )
