5 Reasons You’ll Love Myzone

I love technology, so when I heard we were bringing the Myzone fitness tracker to our Downtown location, I was ready to jump in with both feet. Myzone is the cutting edge in wearable fitness trackers, as it monitors heart rate, calories burnt, time spent exercising, and effort with 99.4% accuracy. I got my Myzone belt in January and I’ve become obsessed with using it during my workouts! I even included it as part of my upcoming Love Your Jeans Challenge and TRX Circuits series because I knew it would increase effort and consistency inside and outside of class.

Our GM’s, Michele & Marilyn, and Trainers, Tara & Jeremy, at Myzone U, learning more about this innovative tech.

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend Myzone U – a full day of learning and experiencing the features of the Myzone, and I was blown away! I had been thinking about the strap as a more accurate way to assess my heart rate, but I was missing out on many of the features that make it special. The Myzone strap has many interesting and highly useful functionalities, but here were my favorite takeaways from this fun educational event:




My Five Favorite Features about Myzone

1. Hit Your Goals

It is a great tool, to hold yourself accountable and increase the effectiveness of your workouts. By making sure you’re in the right zone as you exercise, you’ll burn more calories, hit your fitness goals, and see progress. You’ll even be able to look back at your workouts later and determine if they match up with what you were trying to accomplish – and that includes if your goal was just to enjoy it! 

2. Pre-Made Workouts

The Myzone app has some great “pre-made” workouts on the app, including the MZ-fitness test that you can use to track your progress. You can access those whenever you want and compare results over time.

Use the app to share your stats, post photos, and engage with others’ workouts!

3. Get Social

One of my favorite features is the social connections function. You can plug into our Castle Hill Fitness community by adding connections from the gym. You can rename your workouts, interact with others by sending likes or comments, and add photos if you like. If you had a particularly motivating workout and you want to share it to another social media account, it’s easy to export. Feel free to connect with me, if you like!

4. Engage in Friendly Competition

Participate in challenges created by the gym, your social connections, or yourself. Anyone can create a challenge. Then encourage each other through the social connections function to make goals. 

5. Fun for Your Squad

Myzone is a blast to use during group exercise! Our Myzones can automatically sync to a monitor, and will showcase all the nearby Myzone users on the display.  I could see in real time how much effort I was putting in and how that compared to others. Additionally, I could use that information to adjust my workout. If my heart rate wasn’t in the target zone for a particular exercise, I could either work harder (if my heart rate was too low) or rest longer (if it was too high). Seeing everyone represented on the screen also added to the sense of community and made the group workout more fun. 


If you’re having fun and maintaining consistency, you’ll get better RESULTS.
