MYZONE is coming to Physicore!
Get your Effort Rewarded
Get ready to take your high intensity interval training to another level at Physicore!
Physicore is introducing MYZONE®, the wearable fitness tracking technology designed to ensure your effort is rewarded. Initially available at Physicore Surry Hills for HIITCore classes, MYZONE® features the MZ-3 belt, a Bluetooth enabled heart-rate monitor, which displays heart rate, calories, time and effort to a digital monitor or to the MYZONE App, while simultaneously creating an online logbook of all physical activity that can be viewed anywhere in the world.
MYZONE empowers Physicore clients to become more scientific around training ‘intensity’. And how does it do this? With MYZONE and the MZ-3 belt, intensity becomes a measurable statistic, using heart rate performance displayed as a percentage of your maximum rate.
Knowing what intensity you are working at is essential to ensure you get the most from your exercise sessions and get the results you want. This makes MYZONE a complementary technology for Physicore’s High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) class, HIITCore, where the emphasis is on short bursts of intense anaerobic exercise interspersed with short recover periods. It will be compulsory to wear a MZ-3 belt in all Physicore HIITCore classes from 26 April 2016.
MYZONE users can:
- Exercise inside and outside of a facility while their effort activity is recorded.
- Login online anywhere and track their activity and progress.
- Earn MYZONE Effort Points (MEPs) for every minute of physical activity.
- Participate in challenges based on physical activity and measure results.
- Achieve goals via utilizing heart rate intensity feedback.
To receive the full MYZONE experience, Physicore clients are advised to purchase their own MZ-3 belt, which they can do directly from Physicore for just A$99 (RRP A$199). This special offer will be for a limited time only. Contact us here to purchase a MZ-3 belt.
Physicore clients can hire a MZ-3 belt during a HIITCore class for FREE, but you will not receive any of the personalized data at the end of your class, and thus you will not be able to effectively track your effort from class to class. To put it simply, you will get comparatively little use from hiring the MZ-3 as compared to owning you own.
The MYZONE belt will work in Megaformer classes, but at present, there won’t be any digital displays in our Megaformer studios. The MYZONE App will allow Megaformer clients to display, track, monitor, store and study training performance.
The MYZONE MZ-3 belt works whenever you clip it on. Owning a belt will not tie you exclusively to usage at Physicore, or prevent you from using outside the studio or in other studios with MYZONE installed. The belt stores up to 16 hours of data meaning you are free to train away from a studio or the MYZONE App for a prolonged period.
Each time you wear the belt within range of Physicore Surry Hills studio or your MYZONE App, any stored data will be uploaded to your MYZONE account, which is cloud-based. Your MYZONE data is stored on multiple servers using data encryption. This ensures that the data is stored safely and can only be viewed by you and, based on your permissions, MYZONE and your MYZONE facility.
The MYZONE belt is fully compatible with popular GPS tracking apps such as Strava, Runkeeper, or your own Bluetooth/Ant+ enabled devices, such as the Apple Watch or a Garmin bike computer, allowing your heart rate data to be viewed through these platforms as well.
MYZONE will be available at Physicore from 26 April 2016. For those who do not own their own belt, they can hire one for FREE in the studio. We will require some form of security during the hire period (Drivers license or credit card).
