WHAT IS A MYZONE BELT?
Myzone is an innovative wearable heart rate-based system that uses wireless and cloud-based technology to accurately and conveniently monitor physical activity. It delivers a fully connected solution for the Y. It is successful due to its accuracy at 99.4%. It is the tool for anyone who wants an accurate, gamified and motivating wearable. Myzone monitors heart rate, calories and time exercising in real-time and converts that into Myzone Effort Points (MEPs). MEPs focus on rewarding effort rather than fitness.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Myzone's innovative heart rate belt straps to your chest, are or wrist, which then wirelessly transmits real-time heart rate stats to an app on your phone AND to a television display on the wall of your group exercise class. You can also view your zones, challenge friends, review your activity, connect with friends, view your calories and effort in real time, achieve Myzone Status ranking and more through the Myzone app.
WHO CAN USE MYZONE?
This one is a pretty short answer—everyone can use it! Because your workout is guided by your own heart rate, workouts that use Myzone technology are a great fit for all fitness levels.
Your belt conveniently displays key heart rate metrics, with color-coded "zones" and percentages of max heart rate. These colors/zones help you push yourself into max effort and recovery throughout your workout, resulting in a high-calorie burn, even AFTER your workout is over!
WHICH CLASSES USE MYZONE AT THE Y?
You can find Myzone technology in the following classes at the Y.
- Better You Bootcamp
- Cycle Classes at the Jamerson Family YMCA
Of course, you can use your Myzone belt whenever to track your activity by using the Myzone app! Earn Myzone Effort Points (MEPs) for any activity you do by using the Myzone app — keep up with your workout buddies!
