Myzone delivers a wearable and digital technology solution for the fitness industry. The wearable fitness tracker shows and rewards effort when you work out. Myzone displays real-time heart rate, calories and intensity with five simple, color-coded personalized zones. The telemetry can be displayed collectively in group settings and exercise classes, or individually direct to your smartphone via the Myzone app.
Myzone amplifies the group exercise experience — it provides valuable data for personal training departments with built-in challenges, personal goals, gamification and an online social community. Users are motivated to sustain physical activity through a fun, engaging and inclusive platform.
Part of the product road map for 2018 included the release of a new feature: MZ-Instruct. With the latest software update, Myzone has opened a brand new offering, taking the Myzone system to a whole new level of engagement and motivation for users, clubs and trainers by introducing MZ-Instruct.
Launching with over 100 Myzone exercise videos and other third-party providers, the platform has a plethora of available assets. MZ-Instruct brings a new dynamic to class by promoting engagement with the Myzone screen, allowing the instructor to focus on form and class motivation, whilst following a preset class designed by the club or trainer themselves.
“We are so pleased to finally let Myzone clubs utilize this new feature, which is offered at zero extra cost,” said Dave Wright, the creator of Myzone. “Unlike other video supported functional classes in the industry, MZ-Instruct allows facilities to prescribe what zone a participant should exercise in. This is done via the color tile in each video. The trainer can teach, focus on form, motivate and enthuse the participants while driving zone training.”
Facilities can use the Myzone pre-loaded functional videos or can shoot their own videos. Essentially, MZ-Instruct brings the trainer to life on screen, while also having them present in the class to provide focus, and improved class engagement and interaction. Customers follow simple onscreen videos, while simultaneously being coached and motivated within a class setting. MZ-Instruct is set to secure Myzone’s position within the industry.
