Heart Rate Monitors: Gage students activity levels by monitoring their heart rate in various activities.
Pulse Sticks: Allow students to check their pulse during workouts by placing their hand on the stick that reads their pulse.
Computer (downloadable pedometers): The computer is used for a quick an easy way for students to record their step count for the class. They place their pedometer on the reader and it electronically puts it in the computer under the students name.
