New Myzone Technology in Fitness Center
We are proud to bring Myzone technology to the Fitness Center and new JFit Functional Training Space. MyZone helps you track workouts, set goals and maximize your results. Myzone belts are now available for purchase from the Member Services Desk.
What is Myzone? Myzone is a wearable heart rate based system that uses wireless technology to accurately monitor physical activity. Myzone delivers an accurate, gamified and motivating experience with up to 99% accuracy. Myzone participants use a small heart rate monitor worn on an elastic strap (MZ3 belt) around their upper torso. This device monitors the participant’s heart rate, calories and time exercising. This data is then converted into Myzone Effort Points (MEPs). MEPs focus on rewarding effort rather than fitness and can be displayed in real time on connected television monitors. Through this display, participants are able to compete with classmates in various data categories. Participants can track their data privately if they wish.
- Switch between wrist, arm and chest with ease.
- Track your physical activity so you can earn MEPs in the gym, outdoors and when you swim (water resistance up to 10m).
- Track your exercise in the water when worn on the wrist.
- Instantly know which zone you’re in when worn on the wrist, thanks to the flashing indicator light.
- Store 36 hours of exercise data so that you can work out phone-free.
- Show live workout stats that you can view via the app, on your smartwatch or on the screen in your gym.
- Connect with your favorite cardio machines. See your heart rate on the machines!
