I have exercised regularly my entire 59 year life. I also maintained my age adjusted weight which I occasionally checked using a regular "old school" bathroom scale.
When the mobile phone and health monitoring device era arrived I tried some of the tracking apps and other gizmos that are now on the market like a dime a dozen but never found one I really liked enough to buy or one that made me think about my health differently or motivated me beyond my natural inclination to exercise and eat right.
But I was intrigued by the Body Cardio and decided to try it out and I was quite surprised how it convinced me that tracking my health statistics can actually change the way I exercise and impact my health for the better. Because the Body Cardio takes so many comparable readings at the same time I can now track new goals that have inspired me not only exercise differently but to eat in even healthier ways, This is primarily due to the unique measurement called Pulse Wave Velocity which gives me a measurement of how well blood flows through my body and is an important indicator of future health outcomes.
When I discovered that all my other measurements like weight, body fat, body water, bone mass, muscle mass, heart rate were all well within the normal range for my age, but that my Pulse Wave Velocity was below normal, I started doing more research and learned that how my blood flows through my body is significantly effected by salt and alcohol intake which I never paid much attention to because all my usual vital signs and blood pressure were always within the range of normal.
So I decided to cut back on the salt, have only one beer or glass of wine with dinner, not two, and increase the amount of cardio exercises I do to see what would happen?
Within a week of this change in habit, I moved my Pulse Wave Velocity right into the normal range for my age.
But there is more, because my other statistics improved significantly too including losing about 5 pounds I was carrying unnecessarily.
Now I can’t wait to get on the scale every day to see how I am doing and I have become a true believer in health tracking particular the Pulse Wave Velocity measurement . I was so impressed with thus scale I bought a second one for my weekend home.
