have posters in the gyms explaining heart rate

Please could we have a poster that explains the stats on the cardio machines in the gyms so I know if my heart is going to explode or what the hell the % for weight loss means etc. means.

Hi Chira,

Thank you for your suggestion. I have raised this with a manager at Sport and Wellbeing and received this response:

"Thank you for this feedback. Information about heart rates will vary from individual to individual depending on their dimensions, age and current health status. We would rather sign post people to look at information on the NHS website and would advise you to do the same to make sure you are getting relevant information that will not mislead you. If you would like more information about that please do not hesitate to speak to one of our staff on the gym floor."

Essentially I believe that partly the reason S&W aren't keen for this is to cover themselves legally if there is misuse of equipment based on general advice. Changes in staffing rotas made over the last year has meant that there should always be a member of S&W staff in Jubilee gym, so if you are unsure about how to use any equipment or what the information presented on a cardio machine means I would recommend speaking to them in the first instance.

Best wishes,

Steve Gore, VP Sports
