3 minute read
Life is full and just getting fuller. Having a healthy body and a happy mind helps bring a stronger, brighter, more balanced you to all the things that life throws your way. But, somehow taking care of yourself often ends up last on your list.
Even when you do try to put yourself first, what should you do exactly? Every month there’s a new fitness trend, and it can be overwhelming to know where to begin.
That's why we've taken the guesswork out of your workout and created a smarter, simpler, doable path to effective, efficient fitness, available at home and on-demand.
Why MYX works
At MYX, we’ve figured out how to help you stay on track and achieve your holistic fitness goals — simply, affordably, and from the comfort of your own home.
We’ve paired coach-led, science-backed, personalized workouts you can trust with professional-quality equipment you can count on to get results in whatever time you have.
Here’s the science:
If you think you have to exhaust yourself and be drenched in sweat to get a “good” workout, we want you to know that is simply not true.
For lasting results, you need to move your body in a variety of different ways across different heart rate zones — consistently.* That’s why we incorporate three key principles into the MYX System: heart-rate training, cross-training, and the positive coaching you need to stay on track.
About heart-rate training
Both MYX and MYX Plus come with a top-of-the-line heart rate monitor that’s easy to use. And, our coaches guide you through your workouts using three simple heart rate zones to help you reach your fitness goals. Exercising in all three zones will ensure that you work out, not just for calorie burn, but also for recovery and healthy, sustainable results.
Your three zones are established based on your initial MYX Zone Calibration Ride, our patented system used to assess your unique cardiovascular fitness level.
We collect data from your initial Calibration Ride and use it, along with information from your member profile to customize your three heart-rate zones. Now, with the support and guidance of our coaches, you can maximize efficiency for your body in each and every workout and track your progress over time by retaking the MYX Zone Calibration Ride every 6 weeks to keep your zones up to date.
Moving your body in a variety of ways is the most effective way to achieve lasting results. So, with MYX, you get an extensive range of on-demand workouts focusing on five core elements: strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, and calm.
To deliver that range simply, MYX includes a compact, professional-quality bike used in thousands of gyms globally, and a swiveling touchscreen for easy viewing of workouts — on and off the bike. On the bike, our coaches lead you through your choice of a variety of rides at every level, plus warm-ups and recovery rides. Off the bike, our coaches guide you through floor workouts (including HIIT, kettlebells, and strength training), and recovery exercises (including a range of yoga practices and meditations). This wide range of workouts allows you to “MYX it up” so that every day is different to keep your body on its toes.
About positive coaching
At MYX, there are no leaderboard jockeys. Our coaches are heart-rate performance specialists in the fields of fitness, health, and dance, so they know just how to help you reach your fitness goals efficiently and safely. And they’re also real people living real lives, just like you. They’re moms, dads, students, performers, and motivators from all over the country.
Each coach exercises right alongside you so they can keep you engaged, motivated, and feeling confident about yourself — and make it fun along the way.
Been awhile since you worked out? No time? No problem. Our coaches are here to partner with you, but you pick the workout, the level, and the duration. And no workout is too short. Ten minutes is all you got? That’s great. Every little bit adds up.
