Why Heart-Rate Based Training?

Posted on: January 21st, 2020 by Allie Voss

You may have heard the hype and the buzz around heart-rate based training, but why is it so important? Whether you’re someone who currently uses a fitness watch or you’ve never used anything special when working out, you can optimize each workout when you monitor your heart-rate. At Calhoun Beach Club, we have a program called “The ZONE” which is an athletic-inspired group training program designed to help you efficiently achieve maximum results. Led by an expert CBC trainer, this program uses heart training technology and team-based camaraderie to take your workout to the next level. We use MyZONE belts here at Calhoun, which connect with our TVs, guiding you through each workout, and tracking your progress along the way. Experience interactive, fun and effective workouts including cycling, rowing, partner work, functional training and more. When you take a ZONE class and use a MyZONE belt, you’ll leave each class with a workout report, showing you how great you did, and leaving you feel motivated to do it all over again!

Hear from one of our members, Ron, who really enjoys the ZONE program. “I have been participating in The ZONE about 3 times a week for over a year and it has far exceeded my expectations. I don’t like large workout classes and prior to The ZONE I mostly worked out on my own. The ZONE’s promise of small arena classes with no more than 6 people per session (often less) and instructors who monitor each participant’s performance and offer specific feedback intrigued me. So I gave it a try, and I’m so glad I did. The small class size allows the trainers to modify an exercise to fit any individual’s personal needs. It also provides a sense of community and friendship among the participants and the trainers. The friendly competition among participants and the monthly goals of the program help to motivate each of us to keep working. As a result I have found that my balance, strength, flexibility and endurance have all improved. Perhaps most impressive is that the instructors have been amazingly willing to spend time after class, or alter daily routines, to help an individual improve or to overcome an injury or ache. They have suggested exercises, stretches and foam rolling that has vastly improved a chronic lower backache I had for years. Their caring and individual attention makes this a truly valuable experience and an incredible bargain.” -Ron Faber
