Chatham Works is proud to be one of only a handful of fitness centers on Cape Cod that offers Myzone, and we're the only Myzone equipped facility on the Lower Cape.
The system works uses a chest mounted heart-rate monitoring belt that's 99.4% as accurate as a medical grade EKG ... and far more accurate than any wrist based heart rate monitor. The belt monitors your heart rate, calories and time exercising and uploads your data to the cloud - either via receivers we have in our club that show your workout data in real time on large screen TV's, or by having your belt wirelessly paired to the Myzone app on your phone.
As you workout, the system awards you Myzone Effort Points ("MEPs") based on your workout data. And because Myzone is an intelligent system that automatically calibrates to each individual user, MEPs are rewarded based on your actual effort, rather than fitness level. This creates a level playing field that makes it possible for users with completely different fitness levels to compete with each other - either informally, or in gamified challenges.
Every new annual THE WORKS member gets a Myzone MZ-1 belt when they join. Or you have the option of upgrading to the MZ-3 belt for $65. The MZ-3 features built-in memory that can record up to 16 hours of workout data, an internal battery, and is more waterproof than the MZ-1.
(Note that the MZ-1 *must* be paired to either one of our in-facility receivers OR the Myzone app on your phone in order for your data to be recorded!)
We also sell the MZ-1 for $60, and the MZ-3 for $125.
Myzone has a number of helpful "how-to" and educational videos on YouTube. Here are some other helpful resources:
