Y-Zone Small Group Training

Get inspired. Get together. Get Results. 

Y-Zone is the YMCA's new, state of the art, small group personal training program. In a 1200 sqft studio at the Nir Family YMCA, participants choose from 2 different Y-Zone programs. The programs integrate heart rate monitoring from MyZone. 

Who is Y-Zone Designed For?

Y-Zone programs are for all fitness levels. Sessions provide the right intensity to take your fitness to the “next level.” Because your workout is guided by your heart rate, your session will be tailored to your individual fitness level. And, you have the support and attention of a trainer to help you reach your goals.

Class Logistics

Required: Participants should arrive 15 minutes prior to the start time of their first Y-Zone class. This is to get the MyZone monitor registered/fitted as well as to orient to the room. If a participant does not arrive early for their first class are given two options. One, to defer their first class to the following week or proceed with the first class without the heart rate monitoring. 

Not Required: MyZone MZ3 Belt. We will have loaners available for class however we encourage participants to invest in their own monitor. However, monitors are not required for participation in the program. 


Myzone is an innovative wearable heart rate based system that uses wireless and cloud technology to accurately and conveniently monitor physical activity. It is highly successful due to its accuracy at 99.4$ EKG. It is useful for anyone who wants a gamified and motivating wearable. Myzone monitors heart rate, calories and time exercising in real time and converts that into Myzone Effort Points (MEPs).

Myzone aims to help people feel good about exercise through technology. Unlike many others, Myzone is the only physical activity tracking platform based on the WHO's Physical Activity Guidelines. It uses a game-based platform and social experience that rewards effort not fitness, motivating users to reach their personal bests.
