Train smarter and play harder with MyZone at dryland fitness
Imagine working out and seeing your real time heart rate, calories and intensity with five color-coded personalized zones while tracking friends’ workouts on social feeds. At Dryland Vail and Denver (Breckenridge and Winter Park joining soon), athletes are using MyZone wearable fitness trackers to earn simple rewards-based metrics based on max heart rate, calories burned and overall output called MEPs (MyZone Effort Points) that align with World Health Organization physical activity guidelines.
“We train to do things better outdoors to enhance our active lifestyle and it’s important to measure our progress so we know where we are and how we are progressing,” says Amy Peterson, General Manager at Gravity Haus Denver. “MyZone provides this tool for us and we can see measurements that we are getting in better shape, rather than relying on emotions and ‘feeling’ like we are in better shape.”
Peterson recommends purchasing (MyZone is $90+tax and is yours forever!) and wearing it in every Dryland class you take. “Watch how our coaches teach you how to read and control your heart rate according to the workout,” she says.
Here, Peterson shares her top tips for peak MyZone performance:
- Download the app and use the social features to see friends’ workouts and track your own performance by heart rate zone and effort (MyZone Effort Points = MEPs).
- During a Dryland class in Vail and Denver, use the TVs that display how hard you’re working to challenge yourself. Coaches will also use the displayed data to push you harder or slow you down.
- Wear your MyZone heart rate monitor system proudly in Dryland and then take it out onto your outdoor adventures to track progress while you hike, mountain bike and trail run.
- As you’re going through your workout, data is collected and an email is sent to you after with all of your numbers. Use this data and track it to compare your workouts over time.
- Training for a half marathon? Wear your MyZone on your runs and see how your heart is getting more conditioned because your heart rate doesn’t spike as high as it used to in the beginning of your training.
- Watch for the color changes when switching from heart rate zones. In certain workouts, we want our heart rate to be higher, aiming to be in the green, yellow or red zones. Other days are designed more around recovery, and we look to stay in the gray and blue. This color feature is a great way to send a quick trigger to the brain signaling whether or not we are where we need to be.
“MyZone not only is a quality fitness tracker that does so much more than show calories burned, it also creates a sense of community between all of our locations of Dryland and brings us together as one under the greater umbrella of Gravity Haus,” Peterson says.
