Another tip for body fitness by Mike Geary

Even for recreational activities that I enjoy, such as hiking and mountain biking, these involve large variations in intensity depending on the steepness of the climb at any given time, ground conditions, ascent vs descent, etc... and this means a lot of heart rate variability, which is a good thing.

This is vastly different than what you see most people do at gyms where they get on a treadmill or elliptical and go the same exact pace (and heart rate) for an hour or more... booooorrrrring! (and ineffective too).... Mike Gears
