Does Your Portable Fitness Device Really Work?

Using a portable fitness device with her sports training.

One of the latest workout trends to emerge, portable fitness devices train people to get fit like never before. Unlike going to the gym, a portable fitness device lets you work out in short intervals whenever your schedule allows it. Still, many people are understandably curious if these portable devices can really provide the same benefits as a traditional workout.

Health Benefits

A portable isometric fitness device creates a wide variety of options when it comes to working out. You can target any area of your body and work at the strength and intensity of your choice. While you won’t bulk up like with lifting weights, you can easily achieve the other health benefits of traditional workouts: toning, strength, endurance, and weight loss. Isometric fitness is designed to be low impact and easier on joints. Therefore, isometric exercise can be more effective for some people, such as those recovering from an injury. Also, you’ll get to enjoy plenty of health benefits, such as a decreased risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Tracking Accuracy

Another question that frequently pops up is how accurately a fitness device can track your movements, heart rate, and calories burned. Fitness trackers often come under scrutiny and some measure up better than others. Most, however, do a pretty good job at accuracy, and the numbers will still give you a good idea of where you’re at in relation to your goals.

Long-Term Effects

Because they’re built to be convenient and fun, portable fitness devices really work. This is one of the best reasons to buy an isometric device. The fact is that when most people try to commit to going to the gym, their schedules quickly end up getting in the way and they stop working out altogether.

With a portable fitness device, however, you can sneak in a workout just about anywhere, meaning you’re more likely to stick with it long term. In addition, the games you can play while working out make it fun and keep you coming back for more. In other words, portable fitness devices often exceed other workouts in sustainability and long-term benefits.
