Leading fitness wearable technology is now available to GoodLife's 1.25 Million members across Canada
LONDON, ON, Aug. 30, 2016 /CNW/ - GoodLife Fitness, Canada's largest fitness club chain and MYZONE, the leader in wearable fitness technology have teamed up to offer GoodLife members and staff across Canada access to a powerful and innovative fitness monitoring tool – the MYZONE MZ-3.
The MYZONE MZ-3 is an interactive physical activity belt that can send users' real-time readings to large screens around the club or to their smartphone if they are exercising outside. Through a series of personalized, colour-coded tiles, users always know precisely what heart-rate zone they are in during their workout, allowing them to put in optimum effort to obtain maximum results. The large screens are currently in select GoodLife Fitness clubs and will be in locations across the country in the coming months.
This data is also recorded within the user's online personal activity report, accessible through the MYZONE website or the free MYZONE app. Members can log in to see their current and past activity helping them track progress towards goals. There is also the option to compete in challenges, connect with friends and colleagues and track personal health measurements.
"The GoodLife team really loved the accuracy of the MYZONE MZ-3 system and most importantly, its ability to create a social connection through exercise" says David 'Patch' Patchell-Evans, Founder and CEO of GoodLife Fitness. "We know that feeling connected with others who are also trying to reach personal health and fitness goals plays a huge role in motivating people to achieve their own success—people across Canada can inspire each other to live fit and healthy good lives."
The MYZONE's MZ-3 belt goes around the chest area, allowing members to track their workouts with 99.4 per cent accuracy, regardless of what activity they're doing – be it taking a group fitness class, running or playing sports with friends outdoors, working out with a personal trainer, or using the many pieces of cardio equipment available at GoodLife that connect wirelessly to MYZONE.
"At MYZONE, we are focussed on delivering the most relevant club-based fitness technology to give the member the platform to hit their goals." says Mike Leveque, COO and Co-Founder of MYZONE. "We are proud to partner with 'Patch' and GoodLife to deliver on GoodLife's purpose to help all Canadians live a fit and healthy good life"
"I've found MYZONE to be an amazing accountability tool for my workouts because just like everyone else I'm extremely busy with work, kids, and the craziness of life," says Mike Rathwell, GoodLife Director of Operations and retired Sergeant in the United States Marine Corp. "Since I've had my belt, it has really helped me make sure my workouts are a priority in my day because I know my peers are going to be seeing my results and I'm just a tad bit competitive."
GoodLife Members are now able to purchase the MYZONE MZ-3, at a significantly reduced price, by visiting myzone.goodlifefitness.com.
