My Adventure with MYZONE

David Mizajewski's MYZONE I’m really proud of this chart.

One of the tools I’m using in my fitness journey with VIDA is MYZONE, a personal fitness tracker that monitors things like heart rate and calories burned and produces post-workout reports like this one so you can analyze your workout. (I also hear you can use it during Sweatbox workouts where it projects onto a screen along with everyone else’s in the class to boost the spirit of competition. I don’t think I’m quite ready for Sweatbox yet, but it’s one of my goals.)

The first accomplishment I’m proud of was actually getting myself up and to the gym on a Saturday morning. Given that I’m not a morning person and that I love my lazy weekend mornings at home, that is a big deal! But I did, and after an hour-long body resistance, dumbbell and kettlebell workout session with my trainer Susie Powell, forty-five minutes of 4-3 intervals on the elliptical, and fifteen minutes of stretching, I burned over 1,700 calories and kept my heart rate in 70-90% zone (the green and yellow on the chart) for the majority of the time.

I can feel my body changing, and it’s a pretty incredible thing.

(Oh, and MYZONE lets you pick a nickname. I wanted mine to be wildlife-related so I picked “BeastMan” and the ironic gym-bro-ness of it makes me laugh every time.)
