I'll never forget the day I was personal training one of my Silver Sneaker Clients at the YMCA. I knew her fitness level well and thought everything was going fine. When all of a sudden she said, "I'm not feeling too well Kathie." Her face became pale, her eyes rolled back in her head, and she collapsed on the floor.
Immediately I went into the mode I had been instructed on in the many CPR courses I had taken, even though I was honestly scared to death! This had never happened to me in all my 15 years of training.
"Hey, Joseph! Call 911! Sally bring me the safety kit." I somehow calmly blurted out.
Next thing I know I hear my client's Apple Watch talking to me. "Hello, it's 911 we sense a fall, we will call EMS right away. Are you OK?"
To make a long story short, everything turned out okay. EMS came and my client was fine. She had gotten overheated.
My point in telling you this is the fact that an Apple Watch can save your life!
Not only that but I utilize the stats on an Apple Watch to judge the workouts of all my clients. And now that I'm back in the gym I am surprised at how many people do not know how to use the watch for their fitness.
