Polar – The perfect training partner

Since 1977, Polar has catered for all levels of fitness with its cutting edge heart rate monitors and excellence in sports science.

Installed as the exclusive supplier of heart rate monitors to the LMA since 2006, Polar’s partnership provides the country’s 92 FA Premier League and Football League managers with access to Polar’s market leading products and support services.

Nearly all Premier League football clubs now use Polar heart rate monitors in their training and as a core tool for monitoring fitness as well as the majority of Championship & Football League clubs and a number of youth teams.  

Already popular with a number of clubs and players, the Polar V800 http://www.polar.com/uk-en/products/maximize_performance/running_multisport/V800 combines integrated GPS and 24/7 activity monitoring into one device in order to support a more holistic picture of a player’s regime and to better help identify the ideal balance between training and rest/recovery.  

As well as using individual heart rate monitors, teams also use the Team², http://www.polar.com/uk-en/b2b_products/team_sports/polar_team2_pro which provides accurate physiological information for real time or post session analysis. Coaches can build a record of each player’s condition, their overall performance and create reports that compare the whole team or an individuals training session.  Precise fitness data motivates players and gives coaches a unique training aid to make immediate changes to training and to tailor fitness programmes accordingly.   The data also helps to eliminate major injures and prevent over training.

Today, Polar employs 1,200 people worldwide, it manufactures all products in its fully owned factories, has 21 subsidiaries globally and manages a distribution network supplying over 35,000 retail outlets in more than 80 countries.  

Polar is proud to also have long term partnerships with the PGMOL, Prozone, British Athletics, England Hockey and the RFUW all of whose athletes benefit from Polar technology in their training.
