Pushing the limits
VISITORS to LeisureFit Booragoon now have the ability to see in real time how hard they are pushing themselves, with the City of Melville introducing the MyZone tracking system.
Introduced last Wednesday, it works by having gym-goers wear a monitor that sends their readings to screens around the centre.
It shows users what heartrate zone they are in, allowing them to increase or lower their effort for maximum results.
The data is also recorded within personal activity reports, which can be accessed through the MyZone website or a free app.
Mayor Russell Aubrey said specific small-group training classes utilising the technology were on the cards.
He said the introduction of technology followed other recent upgrades, including the expansion of the LeisureFit Booragoon gym to include a dedicated free weight area and speciality athletic training equipment.
Members can test the tracker on a free 30-day trial, or purchase the belt for $99.
It is one of a number of initiatives the centre is running throughout November.
