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.

NEW!  Wrist, arm and chest MyZone trackers are coming soon! Preorder yours today through Scott Parker for only $90! The chest strap is 99.4% accurate. The wrist and arm band is 95% accurate. These new trackers allow you to:
  • 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!

Contact any of our Fitness Center staff to learn more.

New! Member Playlist

Fun Fitness Fact: Research has found that music delays fatigue and increases work capacity.
We asked and you told us! For those that need help getting motivated, here is the first installment of “JCC Members Favorite Workout Songs.” Members of all ages have shared songs they use for workout motivation. This list incorporates a wide range of different musical genres and tastes. Even if you aren’t a fan of some of these suggested songs, appreciation of the arts and appreciation of different tastes should be one of the things we all strive for this new year. We encourage you to keep exploring. Find what motivates you and let us know! Tell us your favorite workout jam and we’ll add it to future lists! Email your favorite songs to Scott Parker at or tell a member of the Fitness Center Staff.
