Wouldn’t it be nice to know exactly where you are at any moment with your fitness goals? Well not to brag or anything but we can give you exactly that. Say hello to our MYZONE heart rate tracker.
If you haven’t tried one yet, MYZONE will dazzle you. Unlike other activity trackers that only count steps and guess at number of calories burned, MYZONE uses technology to monitor activity from the gym and provides comprehensive, real-time effort data. It takes the guesswork right out of your workouts. You will know exactly how far you’ve gone, and how much effort you’ve spent, and how much progress you’ve made on your goals. All you have to do is wear a lightweight, unobtrusive belt on your torso.
How does it do all this? We’ll spare you all the techie talk but two remarkable features are its Bluetooth capability and built-in memory. When you use MYZONE you receive live data on your smart phone or your Snap Fitness club's TV screen. If you don’t have your phone while exercising, that’s no problem. The tracker stores up to 16 hours of data and will wirelessly upload once you enter a club or open the MYZONE app. Once your workout is completed, a summary email is sent to you with your effort graph, points earned, and calories burned. You will have all the information you need, uploaded and saved in a cloud account, to help you achieve your fitness dreams.
Stop into your club and ask one of our wellness coaches to hook you up with MYZONE. It’s easy to use. And more than that, it’s empowering. Let MYZONE help you measure your effort, modulate your intensity, and accomplish great things!
Now that the new year is in full swing, why not kick your fitness into high gear? We’ve got some great wellness ideas for you. Try them and live your best life in 2018.
Ditch Fried Foods Forever
There’s really no need to keep them in your diet. And what’s great about nutrition in 2018 is that it’s easier than ever to substitute healthy foods. Example: instead of a bag of potato chips, grab a handful of almonds. Easy. French fries? Uh, no. Snap peas? Now you’re talking.
Cardio is Good. Cardio + Strength Training is Better.
If your workouts only focus on cardio and don’t include strength training, you’re missing out on a lot of health benefits. Gaining muscle mass is about more than looking great in the mirror. (Although looking great in the mirror is awesome.) It’s about adding lean muscle mass, which helps your body burn calories efficiently. Make 2018 the year you try high-intensity interval training. Check in with a Snap Fitness trainer to get started.
Clear the Air
Taking good care of your body is important. But so is protecting the air you breathe. This may mean adding an air purifier or air-purifying plant to your home. A plant such a Garden Mum can do wonders to keep allergens out of your lungs.
Make Coffee a Super Food
These days it’s entirely possible to transform your morning coffee into something healthy and nutritious. One thought is to add in a little coconut oil. This will increase your intake of medium-chain fat, which has been shown to have a positive effect on blood lipids, lower triglycerides and raising HDLs. Another idea is to sprinkle in some maca powder, which will provide a generous dose of vitamins and minerals.
Get Serious About Recovery Time
Pushing yourself hard during a workout is great. But just as important as dialing it up while in the gym is dialing it down when you’re not. This means staying hydrated, stretching, getting enough sleep. Let rest be your secret weapon.
Vitamins Can Be Game-Changers
There are so many vitamins on the market that it can be confusing figuring out what to take. The solution? Check in with us. We have our own line of Clean Vitamins, which are made of the best natural ingredients, and super knowledgeable trainers. We can figure out what is best for you.
Self-Care is Job One
Wellness is about more than goals. It’s also about emotional needs. Make sure you strive to obtain inner calm. That can mean taking a long bath, going on a nature hike, luxuriating in a long nap, anything that helps you unwind and decompress. Protect your you-time. You deserve it.
