The EnterTrainer. What a wonderfully genius gizmo. Hook the wireless heart rate monitor to your chest, sync the unit to your television set and the kit will reduce the television volume unless you maintain your chosen exercise heart rate. That’s right, if you slow down pedalling or walking or rowing or whatever, the TV volume decreases and eventually the telly goes off. Genius. Love it! $139.00 and we want one. Now!

The EnterTrainer combines a wireless heart monitor and a universal remote control and may be used with any type of fitness equipment or activity. In response to exercise, The EnterTrainer turns on any TV and maintains volume in direct relation to heart rate. If heart rate goes below a chosen workout target zone, the volume gradually lowers and ultimately the TV turns off. The TV power and volume are restored once the desired workout level is again achieved. The device, about the size of a softball, can be mounted on exercise machines or placed nearby for activities such as push-ups, weight training, jump rope or while exercising to a video routine. Personalized workout levels are calculated based upon user age and workout goals (aerobic, fat burn or cardio)….
