|Personal Fitness Polar Equipment Computer Requirements|
All CVA Personal Fitness students are required to use the provided Polar Watch and Heart Monitoring equipment. Students are provided access to a Polar-sponsored website called Healthy Schools in order to upload their workout data. Ideally, students will be able to use a computer at home to upload the information. However, CVA provides weekly, face-to-face help sessions where students have access to computers to upload their workout data.
The equipment used for uploading Polar watch workout data is
