Members of Bizy Bodies Health and Fitness to Turn Up the Intensity with MYZONE
Members of Bizy Bodies Health and Fitness Center in Wallan will soon have a powerful new tool to assist them in their quest to achieve their health and fitness goals. MYZONE Physical Activity Belts will be available for purchase starting May 25th, and will use personalized readings to inform exercisers of their workouts’ intensity levels in real time on big screens around the Center. MYZONE also keeps track of information online so that members can see precisely how much progress they’ve made over time.
Since opening their doors on February 1st this year, Bizy Bodies Health and Fitness has been regarded as one of the fastest growing facilities in the area. Offering everything from more traditional cardio and strength-training equipment, ALL day group training sessions with a qualified PT, to Meditation and Yoga classes. Now, through MYZONE, Bizy Bodies is looking to provide yet another unique service to their customers: the ability to maximize their own efforts through tracking technology.
“We know that our members want more than facilities and service, they also want accountability. MYZONE enables this in an accurate and convenient way,” says Bizy Bodies Manager Renee Courouzou.
“Tracking is the future of fitness, and we pride ourselves being on the cutting edge by installing a state-of-the-art system like MYZONE.”
That system works by having members wear a heart-rate monitoring belt that sends their readings to screens around the center in real-time. Through a series of personalized, color-coded tiles, users always know precisely what heart-rate zone they are in at any given moment during their workout, allowing them to put in optimum effort to obtain maximum results. Furthermore, this data is recorded within the user’s online personal activity report, accessible either through the MYZONE website or the free MYZONE Lite app, allowing them to log in at any time to see how close they are to reaching their goals.
According to Renee, “MYZONE is the best of sports science made simple for the regular member. Goal setting is the most important part of achieving any desired outcome, and fitness tracking is the simplest and most accurate way of making that happen. If you get your workload done, you get your results, simple. MYZONE holds you to that.”
The system taps into people’s competitive instincts, as well. The more time spent exercising, and the higher the intensity of that exercise, the more MYZONE Effort Points (MEPs) members earn. Users can participate in challenges and monthly leaderboards for the chance to earn prizes, all while improving their overall fitness level.
“Challenges and leaderboards make exercise fun – it drives team spirit within the centre, and helps reignite the yo-yo exercisers,” says Jade Opie, Personal Trainer at Bizy Bodies.
Renee also adds, “It comes down to motivation. That’s what MYZONE is all about. It’s not just about coming in with a resolution to get in better shape; it’s about sustaining that motivation long enough for you to achieve everything that you set out to accomplish and then maintain it. If you’re looking for the edge when it comes to keeping up that motivation, come to Bizy Bodies Health and Fitness and get yourself a MYZONE belt. You won’t regret it.”
