Lose weight, improve your fitness and #rethinkyourday with Polar-Win a Polar FT80

It's no secret that Polar changed my life. I write about it often on the blog and on my social media channels. Not only did they change my life, but I also believe that they saved my life.

And I'd love to pay it forward by gifting one of my readers a Polar FT80.

The FT80 is not your average, run of the mill, beginner heart rate monitor. This computer that you wear strapped to your wrist is a MUST for the fitness enthusiast who wants to improve their strength and cardio.

What do you have to do to win?? It's simple. Watch the video below, and follow the steps on the Rafflecopter!!
