MVP Zone Training

What is MVP Zone Training?

MVP Zone Training is a 60-minute heart rate interval training class.  In class, participants wearing a personal heart rate monitor can visually see their live heart rates on a big screen. The instructor will guide the class on the five heart rate zones and the different health and training benefits of each.

Participants are able to visually see how their exercise efforts are affecting them, giving the opportunity to maximize their experience and results. The workouts include intervals of cardiovascular, strength and resistance training.  On average, participants burn from 400 to 1,000 calories per workout and will continue to burn calories for up to 36 hours post workout!
