Should we adopt a standard method of describing Heart Rate Training Zones? My argument is that until we (I'm talking about everyone in the fitness Industry) all speak with consistent language, manufactures will continue to put stickers like this on fitness equipment. The Majority of people in your club will see this chart on an elliptical machine and remain confused by (if not down right afraid of) Heart Rate Training.
Nothing will change until there is something to change to.
Where are you on this chart?
Does this chart provide anything even remotely helpful or beneficial?
