Family Wellness is excited for the launch of MYZONE in the Cycling Stadium!
The system works by having members wear a heart-rate monitoring belt that sends their readings to the screen in the cycling stadium in real-time. Through a series of personalized, color-coded tiles, users always know precisely what heart-rate zone they are in at any given moment during their workout, allowing them to put in optimum effort to obtain maximum results. This data is recorded within the user’s online personal activity report, accessible either through the MYZONE website or the free MYZONE app, allowing them to log in at any time to see how close they are to reaching their goals.
While MYZONE will be used in the Cycling Stadium, you can use your MYZONE belt during any concerted physical activity, whether that’s at a gym or sports facility, out walking or anything that makes your heart work! You can download the free app and monitor your zone any time outside of the stadium.
Knowing what intensity you are working at is essential to ensure you get the most from your exercise sessions and get the results you want. It also assists you to train safely and effectively when not under the guidance of a trainer or coach.
MYZONE Physical Activity Belts will be available for purchase for $60 + tax starting November 1st at the front desk. The belts will use personalized heart rate readings to inform exercisers of their workouts’ intensity levels in real time on the screen in the cycling stadium starting Saturday, November 4th! Ten demo belts will be available for participants to try out in their cycling class for the first week to see how it works.
MYZONE sets your resting heart rate to 100bpm (beats per minute) as standard. When you first register your belt it is recommended that you perform a resting heart rate test. This involves sitting or lying comfortably while wearing your belt for 10 minutes, ideally in the morning. When you next upload your data at the MYZONE Console your resting heart rate will recalculate to your actual resting value. You can also ask your coach/trainer/teacher to adjust your resting heart rate if it does not Appear to be accurate or if you have completed a resting heart rate test.
