Happy July BMI Crew!

We’ve officially entered the second half of 2019. It’s a great time to reflect on the first half of the year and come up with a game plan to be an even better version of ourselves in the second half.

Read Amy C Rad’s piece on an exciting new technology we will be bringing to the studio this Fall to get you in the “zone” every workout!

Our Good For You Recipe this month is a Beer-Glazed Chicken with Grilled Vegetable dish that will have you looking forward to firing up the grill and chilling with your friends and family.

Lastly, check out the fun class and event pics to relive the fond BMI Crew Memories from last month!

We are so fortunate to have the freedom to choose what we do with most areas of our lives. So choose wisely and stay healthy and sweaty all month long with us at the studio!

Let’s Get In The Zone

By: Amy Chang Radosevich, MA, ACSM, ACE, AFAA

As a fitness professional and studio owner, I am always on the lookout for new training methods, equipment, toys and gadgets that may help us up our training game. With the increasing popularity of using wearables and apps to track our workout intensity and performance, Thao and I were on the lookout for a proven technology that we can bring to the studio so our team can be even more mindful and strategic in conducting our training sessions. We want you to feel more engaged, challenged, and ultimately inspired to really SHOW UP at every workout. So, last week at IDEA World Fitness Convention, aka the Super Bowl of Fitness, we decided to invest in a technology called Myzone.

The purpose of Myzone is to use technology to help people feel good about exercise, which we can totally get after! While heart rate monitors are nothing new, Myzone is wearable heart rate based system with a 99.4% EKG accuracy. It monitors heart rate, calories and time exercising that convert into Myzone Effort Points (MEPs), with a focus on rewarding effort rather than fitness. It is a great tool for anyone who wants an accurate, gamified and motivating wearable. When you are working out with your trainer at the studio, both of you can view your effort live on our soon to be installed TV screen. If you want to take your training outside, you can just as easily view it on your smartphone. Your trainer will now be able to better gauge your effort and intensity levels and also know when you need a longer recovery or rest days. With the Myzone app, you will be able to connect with your trainer, workout friends at the studio or anywhere in the world to motivate and challenge each other.

As much as I am all about focusing on the intrinsic enjoyment of exercise and movement, I also firmly believe that we can’t improve what we don’t measure. So I hope you are as excited as we are in adopting this new tool to kick some serious a$$es in the near future. If you are interested in reading more about Myzone, here’s the link to their website. In the meantime, keep working out hard like you always do and stay tuned...
