Myzone is an innovative wearable heart rate tracking system with a twist! Our members simply strap a belt around their chest – allowing the the belt and attached pod to record heart rate, calories burned and Myzone Effort Points (MEPs). All this information is then shared on a screen within the gym – each tile representing a different member (see image below). Your tile also displays your heart rate as a percentage of your maximum heart rate (MHR) – we call this your effort level.
The idea behind this is to focus on your effort in class as opposed to how fit you are. It shows that even if you are a beginner, you are capable of working just as hard as a fitness fanatic. Our system allows you to not only track how active you are over a week or month, but gives real time feedback to give you that push in class.
As the name suggests, each member has 5 zones that determine how hard you are working. The system identifies, adapts and rewards you depending on your workout intensity. The higher your intensity, the more MEPs you will earn. Your monthly MEP total can be used as a basis for how much exercise you want to do each month but can also be used to create challenges within our facility to encourage you to use your belt within and outside of the gym.
Each member has access to the Myzone app which allows them monitor their effort whilst outside the gym, displaying their workout tile on their phone. The app allows our members to connect to each other just like most other social media platforms. It offers the ability to share workouts, ‘like’ and ‘comment’ on other members workouts and it also provides an in-app ‘Chat’ function.
The greatest appeal for owning your own Myzone belt and using our system in and outside the gym, is the INCREASED MOTIVATION #EffortIsEverything
But how does the system offer motivation and accountability……
1. REAL TIME FEEDBACK continually makes you aware of how hard you are working and continues to push you when the workouts get tough. The Myzone app is compatible with some smart watches and allows you to monitor effort levels even as you run, jump, cycle or climb outside the gym.
2. MYZONE STATUS RANKING SYSTEM – In your first month, when you reach Myzone’s recommended minimum monthly MEP total (1300 MEPs) you are awarded ‘Iron Status’! In the months that follow you can go on to achieve Bronze, Silver, Gold and several others until you reach ‘Hall of Fame Status’. This encourages CONSISTENCY with your exercise and continued EFFORT to reach for that next ranking.
3. MONTHLY MYZONE DRAW – Every month, each Myzone user that reaches 1300 MEPs has their name entered into a draw and we choose a name at random to win a FREE MONTHS MEMBERSHIP EVERY MONTH. For every 1000 MEPs over this amount, the member gets an extra name in the draw. This again encourages exercise outside of gym hours and really does REWARD EFFORT.
Our belts are available to our members and also to our ‘pay as you go’ regulars. So even if you only attend 1 class per month within our facility, we would still love for your to be able to enjoy the experience of that 1 visit to the fullest. As well as being able to use your belt within The Engine Room, you can also use your belt in any other facility that uses the Myzone system. We have a few members who also attend other local Health Clubs and make use of their system there.
We offer belts to all at the cost price of £50 – compared to the £120 you can pay online – what an absolute steal! If you fancy coming along to try a class or want to buy a belt for yourself or for someone else (maybe as a Christmas gift) then just drop us an email or message us on any of our social platforms.
