Why Are Heart Rate Monitors the Most Important Thing You Can Buy to Achieve Your Fitness Goals?

How Hard Should You Be Working?

How hard you should be working depends on a number of factors, and our best suggestion is to meet with a personal trainer to set up your heart rate device and to determine what zones you should be working in based on your own unique goals. Read more about how hard you should be working in our recent blog post:

When Your Heart Rate Monitor Doesn't Have a Visible ID Number - How Can You Pair It?

In some cases, compatible BYO heart rate monitors won’t have their device ID visible anywhere on or in the device, and you’ll need to take some extra steps to find that number so that you can set up your device to work in Elevate Classes (see instructions above). Here are the step by step instructions for those people who find themselves in this unique situation.

Step 1. Verify that your device is on the list of compatible devices here.

Step 2. Download an app to your phone called WASP Util (this can only be done on an iOS device currently):

Step 3. Go to your phone settings and connect to the network called Gold’s Gym using the password goldsgymdigital

Step 4. n the WASP UTIL app, you should see the WiFi network listed at the top of this home screen. Additionally, you will see any receivers that are connected to that network:

Step 5. Click Sensors at the bottom of the screen. All types of devices will be displayed, organized by their type:

Step 6. Find the Heart Rate category. All Heart Rate monitors currently powered on will be listed in this section.

Step 7. The RSSI number to the right of a monitor indicates how close it is to the receiver (the screens in the club used to display heart rate information). The closer the number is to 0, the closer it is to the receiver. Using the Heart Rate monitor you would like to pair, bring it as close to the receiver as possible (make sure the device is on and actively reading a heart rate).

Step 8. The monitor’s Device ID is the leftmost number shown. In the example above, the heart rate monitor’s Device ID is 34815.

Step 9. Add the Device ID using the directions in the “Pairing For Classes” link at the top of this page.
