What is Myzone?

 

Myzone is a program that incorporates a wearable belt that monitors heart rate. The belts use wireless and cloud technology to accurately and conveniently monitor physical activity.

How does it work?

 

Myzone's innovative heart rate belt straps to your chest, which then wirelessly transmits real-time heart rate stats to an app on your phone AND to a television display on the wall of your group exercise class.

Who can use it?

 

This one is a pretty short answer—everyone can use it! Because your workout is guided by your own heart rate, workouts that use Myzone technology are a great fit for all fitness levels.

 

Your belt conveniently displays key heart rate metrics, with color-coded "zones" and percentages of max heart rate. These colors/zones help you push yourself into max effort and recovery throughout your workout, resulting in high calorie burn, even AFTER your workout is over!

How is the Y using Myzone?

 

You can find Myzone technology in group cycling classes at various YMCA locations! Myzone is also the heart rate monitoring technology that is used in the Y's newest group monthly add-on workout option, REGYMEN. REGYMEN is now available at the YMCA at Town Center, the Blocker Norfolk Family YMCA and the YMCA at Edinburgh! And of course, you can use your Myzone belt whenever to track your activity through the Myzone app!
