7 Reasons To Work Out With A MYZONE
By Mekita Rivas, VIDA editor and member
Tired of feeling like you’re just going through the motions at the gym? Are you hitting plateaus left and right? Or maybe you just need something to make working out fresh and exciting again. No matter your reason, we guarantee that incorporating the MYZONE heart rate monitor into your life will be a real game-changer! Here are seven reasons why you should start working out with a MYZONE.
Keep track of your metrics.
We spent a lot of time researching the best, most advanced heart rate monitoring systems on the market. The MYZONE MZ-3 belt (and its corresponding app) is just that! The MYZONE heart rate monitor provides numbers that are far more accurate than what you see on a standard summary from a treadmill or elliptical. That’s because it’s actually measuring your effort and exertion — not just generic information punched into a machine.
Set quantifiable goals.
In the MYZONE app, you’ll see the percentage of the amount of your maximum heart rate that you’re currently at, which you’ll see go up pretty quickly when you start moving. MYZONE uses different color zones for percentage ranges (blue for 60-70% of your max, green for 70-80%, yellow 80-90%, and red is 90-100%) so you can easily see which range you’re in with a quick glance at your phone. In addition to your color zone, your tile also displays total calories burned, your current heart rate, and the amount of MYZONE Effort Points (MEPs) you’ve earned.
Receive personalized workout summaries.
The MYZONE heart rate monitor incorporates several unique features that VIDA members love, including the ability to live-track your effort exertion in real-time on your phone. You also receive personalized workout summaries directly to your inbox after every session, giving you an in-depth look at how hard you worked and what you can do to continue improving!
Take your group fitness classes to the next level.
The live feedback from the app is perfect for group fitness and small group training classes. With MYZONE, instructors can ensure that each person is performing in the same effort zone. It also means no room for slacking, since your phone will show the rest of the room how much effort you’re actually putting out at that moment. If you have room to be pushing harder, you can bet that your instructor will hold you accountable!
Compete with friends.
The social aspect of the MYZONE app is truly unique. You can add connections on the app the same way you would on your favorite social media platforms. Your connections’ workouts will appear on your newsfeed, and you can compare stats with a friend after completing the same class together. This feature is great for those with a competitive streak!
Participate in VIDA-wide challenges and win prizes.
Speaking of competition, here at VIDA we’re always thinking of ways to motivate our members to go above and beyond their comfort zones. That’s why we regularly host club-wide MYZONE challenges that are intended to get you up and moving! We set the MEPs goal, and if you meet that number during a specific time frame, you’ll receive great prizes like a $100 personal training or small group training voucher.
