You need one! They take the guessing out of how many calories you burn during your cardio session. Get one with a chest strap and make sure it asks for your info- gender, age, weight, height- Polar is a great brand- I have never regretted spending the $$$- The best piece of fitness equipment I own.

Modify to Keep it interesting

doing repetive things can get boring, and your body can get so used to it it doesn't help as much - modify by doing 10 sets straight, then adding something different like head turn s or leg lft sfor the next 10, alternate- or do your whole circuit in reverse, or change your route....
