Push­ing the lim­its

Melville Times - - What's On -

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.
