Exclusive Y-Zone Program Integrates Technology and Group Training
The holidays are long gone, but for some of us, the impact of all of the cookies, cakes, and sugarplums remains. The onset of bathing suit season looms ominously; the summer season “goal clothes” languish in a corner of the closet, gathering dust. So why not make the most of the time in the gym? Maximizing the effectiveness of a training program just makes sense, and with our advanced Y-Zone Training Program, I can practically guarantee you will see positive results in a short amount of time.
Utilizing a heart rate monitor that monitors information in real-time and posts the results on a TV screen overhead, the Y-Zone Program allows participants to ensure they are training in the optimal zone for their specific age and weight. The benefits of the Y-Zone Training Program are compounded by the fact that it takes place in a fun, competitive group environment, in a 1,200 square foot studio that was specifically designed for use by the program.
To further customize the training program to individual needs, wants and goals, participants can choose from a variety of classes, including:
Burn – As the name implies, this high intensity, 45-minute workout focuses on challenging muscular and cardiovascular strength and endurance. Incorporating a series of total body movements that activate multiple muscle groups, this metabolic workout is a game changer.
Circuit – Popular among a variety of age groups and fitness levels, this is a unique, full-body training session that works all areas of the body, while minimizing impact to the joints. Delivered in a fun and energetic way, this program helps participants move better, lose weight and improve muscle tone.
Recover – For those who are seeking to overcome an injury or revitalize their body, this is a great choice. The program emphasizes three key components of fitness: flexibility, mobility and stability, by integrating movements that allow participants to learn by doing.
Though we recognize that there are numerous advantages associated with training in a group environment, we limit class sizes to a maximum of 12 people. This allows us to provide those who are participating in the programs with a higher degree of personal attention and individualized advice.
A heart rate monitor is not required for the classes, however it is an essential tool if you want to enhance your workout. The Y-Zone Program utilizes the MZ3 Belt Heart Rate Monitor, which is available through the YMCA for only $100. Loaners are also available, and we have a number of special offers, such as the three day per week plan, which allows you to get a monitor and a free T-shirt for only $60.
Understanding that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to fitness, the Y-Zone Training Program integrates advanced technology with customized training and provides benchmarks every 12 weeks.
