My Zone
What is MyZone?
MyZone is a wearable heart rate belt that tracks heart rate, calories and time exercising. MyZone converts these readings into MyZone Effort Points (MEPs) which rewards effort rather than fitness.

The Myzone heart rate belt pairs with the MyZone app which shows your real time heart rate, calories burned and intensity during your work out.

How does it work?
MyZone calculates your maximum heart rate using user information that you input into your app. MyZone then records and displays your heart rate during your workout as percentages of your maximum heart rate. The closer you are to your maximum heart rate, the harder you are working and the higher the amount of MEPs you will receive.

MyZone displays this information by highlighting which zone you are working in: Grey, Blue, Green, Yellow and Red. A different number of MEP points are awarded for each minute spend in different zones.

How does this benefit me?
By training in the different colour zones, it allows you to take complete control of your workout ensuring you’re getting the best out of every session. It allows people of different fitness abilities to come together and have the same level of intensity in their workouts. You can plan workouts by time spent in each zone and try for new records with your MEP points!

You can track your progress by viewing daily, weekly and monthly MEPs total. You can also add other MyZone users via the app and can view how you compare against your friends and even instructors!

The MyZone belt also connects with third party apps and equipment such as FitBit, Garmin, Strava, Gym Equipment, Apple Health, Google Fit and many more.

Purchase your MyZone belt from our reception desk at a discounted price of £60.00 (RRP £129.99). Speak to a member of our gym team for further information.
