Planning for the Exercise Schedule

I went to the YMCA today and met with Andre "Training Consultant" with my exercise protocol in hand. He read through the information and asked me a few questions about how much exercise I could do now etc etc. He wanted to plot all the exercises , as specified, into the YMCA's fitness computer system.

At our local YMCA, they use a fitness tracking program called Technogym. The system allows the consultants to enter as many workout routines as required along with the time, intensity level and HR zone. The customer uploads the information from a kiosk in the gym onto a fitness "key" which you plug into the exercise machines as you use them. The key downloads the information to the exercise machine and ensures you stay within the set exercise parameters.

So long as I can stagger from one machine to another and plug in my "key" I will be able to get the benefits from the prescribed exercises without using too much of my brain. This is a bonus, as you would understand if you suffer from POTS or OI, since some of the time our brains are in a holding pattern.
