MyZone: Follow Your Heart… Rate!

Sep 19, 2022

Have you heard people talking about MyZone or looked around the gym and wondered where the performance data showing on the digital screens in the club is coming from? MyZone’s game-changing wearables keep people motivated, wherever they choose to work out. Discover how you can build on your fitness community more with Myzone. The Myzone app is your key to connecting with others, competing with yourself, and collecting Myzone Effort Points (MEPs). Go for your goals with real-life data that’s tailored to you.

MyZone is a 99.4% accurate fitness tracker and online social platform that rewards effort for all physical activity. Myzone belts and tools help people around the world feel good about exercise. You can use it anywhere for any workout. When you are in a MyZone facility like FITNESS PROJECT, your tile will pop up and display in the club to help you track your performance and results.

In addition, workouts or activities done outside a facility are recorded on the device and can be viewed on the app at any time. This real-time feedback provides users with insight into their physical activity whether they’re in the gym, outdoors, or at home, helping them keep themselves active, healthy, and building accountability for the long term.

There are 5 main effort levels on the MyZone format

Gray/Blue/Green/Yellow/Red. Industry-standard training levels blend through the color zones used by MyZone. Below is a breakdown of the three main training levels achieved during exercise.

Peak (Yellow-Red)

Intensity: Vigorous (85 to 100 percent of your max heart rate)
Benefit: Increases performance speed (Think: high incline/speed treadmill, burpees, rowing)

Cardio (Green-Yellow)

Intensity: Hard (70 to 84 percent of your Max HR)
Benefit: Builds cardiovascular fitness and muscle strength (Think: jumping, steady treadmill, heavy weights)

Fat Burn (Gray-Blue)

Intensity: Moderate (50 to 69 percent of your Max HR)
Benefit: Builds aerobic endurance and teaches the body to burn fat as fuel (Think: core, strength training, bodyweight)

Most people shouldn’t be aiming for the red zone with every workout. Nuances between the different zones are much more beneficial to your well-being than trying to max out with every movement. Cardio workouts are key to losing weight and the more intense your workout, the more calories you’ll burn. Using this logic, it can be tempting to exercise as hard as possible in an effort to shed pounds quickly. However, Max heart rate workouts should be done sparingly since the ultra-high intensity can lead to injuries, extreme fatigue, and other symptoms of overtraining.

To better understand Myzone Effort Points. or MEPs, these are how Myzone measures effort. You begin earning MEPs once you are above 50% of your max heart rate. The more effort you put in, the more MEPs you get back.

MyZone MEPs

MyZone Effort Points are points given to the wearer for each of the color levels.

  • Grey: (50-59%) 1 MEP/min
  • Blue: (60-69%) 2 MEP/min
  • Green: (70-79) 3 MEP/min
  • Yellow: (80-89%) 4 MEP/min
  • Red: (90-100%) 4 MEP/min

Notice, that there are no extra points given for being in the Red Zone. Red Zone Training should be used sparingly and not encouraged for long periods of time.

The WHO (World Health Organization) recommended guidelines for physical activity follows:

Adults aged 18–64 years: should do at least 150–300 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week or at least 75–150 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity; or an equivalent combination of moderate- and vigorous-intensity activity throughout the week.

MyZone has used the minimum numbers above as the minimum move goal total for a month and you can work towards gaining status points for every month you meet this. It equates to 1300 MEPs. Wearers can gain status the longer and more consistently they wear it.

To ensure your Zones match your actual effort, it is important that your Max Heart Rate is accurate. Your Max HR is estimated from the formula 211-.064 X age to begin. During a workout, if your heart rate goes above your current Max HR for 30 seconds or more your Max HR will be adjusted automatically. Your zones will then become more accurate.

It’s no secret that January is a popular time for people to commit to a new set of fitness goals. A new year is a perfect time to wipe the slate clean and start fresh; plus, society's focus on "New Year, New You" makes it pretty easy to stay on track. 

But what happens once January is over? According to statistics, a whopping 80% of people fail or give up on their resolutions by mid-February. So if you’re starting to feel a lack of motivation to maintain healthy habits and your interest in the gym is starting to go by the wayside, you’re not alone. Fortunately, that doesn’t mean you have to become another statistic

Trust us, we get it. February is a tough month, it’s the shortest month of the year, yet the month seems to drag by the slowest. While the temptation to set serious exercise aside until the temperature rises is strong, resist it for the sake of long-term fitness and wellness goals. Brave the demotivating month, and take on the February Fitness Blahs with some of these wonderful tips and offers!
