What is Myzone?
It is an exciting new software that is taking the Fitness Industry by storm and we are bringing it to Oxley! What is Myzone you ask? Whilst at the gym or during a fitness class you may have heard your instructor talk about your Maximum Heart Rate (MHR) which is the age related number of beats per minute when the heart is working at its maximum. MyZone is an innovative wearable heart rate strap based system, that has a 99.4% accurate heart rate reading, equivalent of an ECG. The heart rate strap is far more accurate than your normal fitness trackers such as a Garmin or Apple watch. The monitor uses 5 different colour zones, which represent a percentage of your maximum heart rate. The wireless cloud technology then logs and tracks calorie expenditure and time used exercising which is then all stored on to an app on your phone or IPad, compactable with either android or iOS. It conveniently monitors your physical activity allowing you to see your progression, helps you to work harder to achieve your fitness goals and allows you to connect with others using MyZone.
You are able to compete and connect with others from within your facility, view workout histories and it is great for group training for events such as Tough Mudders. Being able to analyse where the weaknesses are on each team member to then be able to work together to improve and achieve the goal set.
The strap stores up to 16 hours of data meaning you can train and exercise outside the centre, away from your phone and app. It will also connect to 3rd party apps such as Google fit, Strava, Facebook and the like. The strap is also waterproof up to 10m which allows you to swim with it on.

At Oxley we have a modern gym with easy to use equipment. Our gym is supervised by qualified instructors who are here to help you achieve your fitness goals. We do our best to keep up to date with the latest fitness releases and qualifications to have the best knowledge possible to help you. See below for a profile on each of our instructors who are experienced in different fields of the fitness industry.
Initial consultation (45min-1hour) - A detailed health questionnaire will be filled in with an instructor to help us understand you current state of fitness and set your personal goals. You will also be given a basic introduction to the cardiovascular equipment and have a blood pressure reading taken.
Personal Program (45 min) - Your instructor will confirm your understanding of the cardiovascular machines, introduce you to some resistance exercises and produce your program card.
Please Note: When you have your initial induction your blood pressure will be taken. If you are on medication for blood pressure it would be helpful if you could bring a signed note from your GP to explain the condition and confirm that it is safe for you to proceed with a new fitness regime. Should you have undetected high blood pressure that is discovered at the time of induction we will be obliged for your own safety to halt proceedings and recommend you make an appointment with your doctor for a full check up. If this should happen we would give you a form for your doctor to fill and sign and you can then bring this back to us.
Reviews and Monitoring Services
Follow up reviews (45 min) - Our members receive two extra reviews after their initial induction. During these sessions we reflect back to your original goals and adapt your regime to keep you on track. The last review is a free Personal Training taster session (45 min). If more in depth help is needed, we would recommend personal training sessions to help.
Health M.O.T (30 min) - Your initial health MOT is free and includes weight, Blood pressure, measurements and a composition analysis (body stat) reading. This gives us detailed readings relating directly to your health and allows us to continue your progression towards optimal health. Further health MOT's are priced at £5
