What allows you to accurately track your effort levels in the gym (and also indirectly lets you know that you’re pregnant)?
It’s one of the ‘cool tools’ we use at Improve to help keep our members accountable and also to ensure that they’re training is as tailored to them as individuals as possible.
In short, MYZONE is a state-of-the-art heart rate monitoring system that allows our members to monitor their effort levels, fitness progression, and exercise frequency.
You can see your effort levels – in real time – on our big screens in the gym. You can track your progress in the MYZONE app and you can get competitive (if you’re that way inclined) with others, in terms of ‘effort points’ achieved.
We introduced MYZONE at Improve Glasgow in January 2017 and it’s been a huge hit ever since.
Around two-thirds of our members use it and we’ve found it to be amazing when it comes to accountability.
You don’t even have to be in the gym for it to work. A lot of our members travel with work…and everyone loves a holiday, right?
With MYZONE, all you need is your ‘belt’ and it’ll store up to 16 hours worth of data, which automatically syncs with the app on your phone as soon as you’ve got a Bluetooth or wifi signal.
So we can keep tabs on your training frequency and effort levels even when you’re not within our four walls.
Yes, that is a little creepy…but it’s damn good for making sure people are getting their workouts in.
From an actual coaching point of view, we (as coaches) can clearly see how hard everyone is working. This means that we can kick people in the butt if they’re not quite putting a shift in…figuratively, of course. And also give people that bit more rest if they’re feeling more tired than usual, are newer to exercise or are just struggling on the day.
It’s allowed us to further personalise our already super-duper personal service.
