SEPTEMBER SPECIAL!!!!!!

Most of have noticed or asked about the new myzone fitness monitoring system we have installed at the gym. I have been using for the last month learning the effectiveness of my workouts and what movements create the biggest spike in my heart rate. So far this month I have burned just over 10,000 calories! That's freakin crazy. 

What exactly is myzone?

MYZONE® is a chest strap and monitoring system that transmits heart rate, calories and effort in real time to a live display and wirelessly uploads that data to a logbook that can be accessed online or through the free MYZONE® Lite App.

MYZONE® is the only exercise tracking system in the world that is able to provide real-time feedback of exercise intensity as well as wirelessly upload exercise data that has been stored, making the technology simple and convenient for everyone to use.

What does this mean for you?

Improved workouts

More efficient workouts

Real time monitoring (should you rest or work)

Calories burned

Max heart rate and average heart rate

Email after every workout with a summery of work performed. 

You can also wear outside of gym and still log your workout. 

And so much more !!

FOR THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER WHEN YOU BUY A MYZONE STRAP FOR $55 YOU GET THE FIRST MONTH OF MONITORING FOR FREE!!!!!! After that it's just $25 a month with no long term commitment. 

See me for more info or if you would like to try one of our demo straps.

MYZONE IS HERE!

We are now the first and only training facility in the state to offer the MyZone fitness monitoring system. What is MyZone?

MYZONE® is a chest strap and monitoring system that transmits heart rate, calories and effort in real time to a live display and wirelessly uploads that data to a logbook that can be accessed online or through the free MYZONE® Lite App.

MYZONE® is the only exercise tracking system in the world that is able to provide real-time feedback of exercise intensity as well as wirelessly upload exercise data that has been stored, making the technology simple and convenient for everyone to use.


I have been using MyZone every workout for the last week and it's AWESOME! The best feature is I can now monitoring my exertion level and rest between reps or movements. With a quick glance at the monitor I can see if I am physically recovered to keep moving or am I working as hard as I think I am. Also after each workout I get a report of my highest heart rate, lowest heart rate, average heart rate calories burned and a graph of my effort levels. I can also challenge to all other MyZone users. If weight loss is your goal what better way to track progress then to actually see your work effort in real time. If weight gain is your goal you can track calories burned to make sure your eating enough to build muscle. It's the perfect way to track and monitor your fitness level. 


All current LCF members can buy a fitness strap for $55 and add MyZone to there membership for just $25 a month! I have 2 demo straps for anyone to use and try during there workout. 


As always we will continue to make LCF the best and most innovative training facility in the state. 


Take a new scientific approach to your workout and see what you can do!


Here are are some of my results from the last couple workouts. 

Look at that 933 calories burned in one workout!

Jacked and Tan

We had the pleasure of having the one and only, Mark "Smelly" Bell teach a Deadlift workshop yesterday. It was great to see everyone take these tips and apply them in a Powerlifting WOD. We had several people break into the 400lb club and Nate added 40lb to his Deadlift! After the WOD, Mark and I got to talking about training and lifting and how CrossFit has changed the way people look at lifting. Before if you were a powerlifter or weightlifter you didn't need to do any conditioning. Bodybuilders hit a bunch of isolation, then some treadmill for 30 minutes. Endurance athletes just ran. Now there is a new breed of athletes; the CrossFitter! From the beginner to advanced, we're all now combining powerlifting, weightlifting, endurance and some bodybuilding movements!! It's awesome to see this everyday in the gym and I am constantly surprised by you guys and your mental and athletic achievements.

So no matter if your a Power Athlete, Oly Lifter, CrossFitter, KettleBell junky or just Functional Fitness Enthusiast, keep training and challenge yourself daily. Get out of the comfort zone and see what's possible!

New program!

Most of you have noticed some new toys around the gym like the assault bikes (I don't think anyone likes these) battling ropes, dumbells and there is more on the way. We got all this killer new stuff to go along with a brand new fitness monitoring system that should be here any day now. We will be adding a new program called ZONE TRAINING this will be a class specifically built around training in different heart rate zones to provide a new amazing workout. We are the first in the state to have this new system. The best part is we as trainers will be able to monitor each clients level of exertion at any moment durning the workout. As a client you will be emailed a detailed analysis of calories burned, time spent in the different heart rate zones, lowest HR and highest HR plus so much more! Each workout will be saved and logged so you can always access your workouts on the go. ZONE TRAINING classes will be different from regular CrossFit. We will have a completely different workout and use some different tools. ZONE will be the perfect complement to CF or can be done as your only means of exercise. The big difference is ZONE classes will not use barbells and will have more focus on cardiovascular training at high intensity levels. ZONE classes will be offered Monday through Friday at 10:30am and 3pm or Mon/Tues/Thurs/Fri at 7pm. All current members can add unlimited ZONE TRAINING for only $50 per month and you get your own ZONE fitness strap. ZONE only classes will be $150 per month and you get your own ZONE fitness strap! Once I have everything set up everyone is invited to try 3 classes for FREE!
