MYZONE, a new innovative heart rate-based system that uses wireless and cloud technology to accurately and conveniently monitor physical activity, launched last September at Downs Leisure Centre and, due to popular demand, will be launching at Lewes Leisure Centre in February this year.
The MYZONE belt allows users to track their heart rate, calories, time and MYZONE Effort Points (or MEPs). Whether you are taking a class, working out in the gym, running or cycling, the MYZONE system accurately and conveniently monitors physical activity using wireless and cloud technology.
The gym will have a MYZONE screen which will display color-coded heart rate zones to establish a percentage of maximum effort (intensity) based on your heart rate. Every minute of effort above 50% will earn you MEPs.
MYZONE Effort Points (MEPs) are a new metric for measuring your physical activity. The MEPs accumulate for every minute of activity that you spend in the five effort (intensity) zones based on your individual maximum heart rate.
The more effort that is put in, the more MYZONE Effort points you earn!
