What is Myzone?
It is an exciting new software that is taking the Fitness Industry by storm and we are lucky enough to have it here at 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, 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.
