What is MyZone?
Building a socially connected fitness community
MYZONE BRINGS FUN & FAIR FITNESS TO THE YMCA!
MyZone offers the MZ-Switch: the world’s first interchangeable heart rate monitor. It can be worn in the gym, outdoors or even in the water. Depending on how you workout, it can also be worn on your arm, chest or wrist. MyZone heart rate monitors are unique. They don’t measure speed, cadence, or weight lifted, they measure the effort you put in with your heart. This means beginners can take on gym bunnies and come out on top.
Track your real time heart rate and effort to see your data on screen and move through the zones to earn effort points. MyZone helps you stay connected to your community, no matter where you workout.
Tracking: What are MEPs & Zones?
EFFORT OVER ABILITY
Effort is different for all of us. When we work out, we should be rewarded for what we put in. That is why MyZone invented Myzone Effort Points (MEPs) MEPs are tailored to how hard your heart is working; not to your fitness level. This device will calculate your maximum heart rate (MHR) from the moment you start training. If your MHR changes over time, the MZ-Switch will update automatically to guarantee your data stays personal to you.
GET IN THE ZONE
During your workout, you will reach different zones based on your heart rate. Each zone is worth a different number of MEPs. The harder you work, the more you earn. Instant feedback tells you when to ease off or step up as you enter each zone. Each of the five zones represent a percentage of your MHR. This is calculated specifically to you when you start training.
While MyZone offers a variety of heart rate monitors and fitness products, the YMCA only offers the newest and most versatile model: The MZ-Switch. It’s designed to be worn anywhere: the gym, outdoors or even in the water!
Step 1: Register your MZ-Switch
The MZ-Switch is amazing but it’s lot of information to take in all at once. So we’ve provided a series of instructional videos to help you through the process. Before you can use your device, you must register it!
Step 2: Wearing the MZ-Switch
The MZ-Switch is an interchangeable heart rate monitor that can be worn on your chest, wrist or arm. Learn which one is right for you.

WHAT ARE YMCA MEMBERS SAYING ABOUT MYZONE?
"Myzone is a new band that I have found to be quite motivating! Having capabilities to show my personal efforts in areas such as heart rate, length of workout and points that add up, it makes to want to push yourself a little harder! This has a been a great tool to connect with other members of the Y, if you choose, and share how each of you are doing. Great accountability, if you are someone who enjoys that. I’m excited to continue to research and play around with all that it is capable of doing! Myzone is a great tool to showcase my health and my ability to increase my health and wellness!"

“I totally recommend to anyone that is serious about fitness. I have a Garmin too, I wear it day and night and I have tracked my workouts for a couple years now but I like how this interacts with others and keeps you accountable. That really is a nice feature especially if you don’t have a physical workout buddy (like me) - I still feel like I got “buddies” pushing me by seeing what they are doing and accomplishing.” - Shelly L.
