My journey (a Polar video debut)

I received a special email this week with a link.

A link to a video that has been weeks in the works.

A video of a compilation of moments over the past few years of my journey, proving that anyone can do this.

There are so many resources and tools we have available to us as we fight on our healthiness journey. Websites, apps, programs, gyms, services, gadgets… the list goes on and on. At times, it can feel pretty overwhelming. And that’s without even all the fancy technologies out there that record this, tract that, report your abc’s and catalog your xyz’s. There are so many things to learn about when fighting for healthiness — and it is tools like a Polar HRM that help bridge the gap between being overwhelmed & being knowledgeable, powerful and purposeful. This is a journey — it means the minute we figure something out, we have the opportunity to look at what is next.

My Polar HRM has been there for me. Before the Ambassador program, before the FitBloggin’ Sponsorship and before the video, it was me and my Polar HRM. {click the links to read past posts & previous thoughts on Polar!}

I am a firm believer in leveraging not only our own strengths but also matching it with the tools and resources from outside our self, from companies like Polar, in order to more efficiently catapult our dreams into realities. A special thank you to Polar for sharing real stories like mine, with the intent on hoping to motivate and inspire others to fight for their own healthines goals.

I hope you enjoy the video! Stay tuned tomorrow for a post years in the works!

    What a well produced, sincere, authentic piece of multimedia. I understand it’s marketing material, but it’s meaningful and makes a clear connection of product -> value. I love that Polar is the type of company that does this. …and I love that you were featured for it. Your story, your message, your conviction…comes through so loud and clear 🙂 To distill so much into so little time…job well done.

  2. Wow, I love the video!!! I love seeing bloggers I read regularly in a video. I also use a HRM regularly. I switch back and forth between Polar and Garmin.

  3. The video was absolutely beautiful!! You are such an inspiration and thank you so much for sharing. I teared up a little bit, but am so grateful that you have shared your journey with so many people!!

  4. Jen, the Polar video had me in tears even before they got the the part about your mom. Your story is just so imspiring.
    Thanks for continuing to share your journey with us all!

  5. Gosh, I am just speechless — I LOVED it! What a fantastic vehicle for telling your story. You did SUCH a great job. I feel all warm and fuzzy, I am so glad that this is what I watched just before heading to bed!

    Congrats, and as always, thanks for sharing. You inspire people even more than you know 🙂

    PS — When I read your posts, in my head I always hear a voice with light MN accent. I smiled at hearing your voice on the video — to my NY ears, there is just the hint of a very cute one 🙂

  6. Jen! Love this! Thank you for sharing! You had me in tears. So proud of you! xoxo

  7. Well done!!!! Again, thanks for sharing your story–very inspiring….

  1. […] the gym. In fact, lemme be 1,000% honest and share that I have not been to the gym since I shot the Polar video about a 1.5 months ago. Before you get too nervous I lost my mo-jo, I have been running 3-4 a week […]

  2. […] of July and most recently have gotten five days a week for the past couple weeks. To go with my Polar HRM, I have a Polar Flowlink that syncs my data up online. I love being able to look at all my workouts […]
