How do I keep myself safe while working out with dumbbells?
It is always recommended to have a spotter when working out with free weights, especially heavy weights. When using dumbbells, make sure that the area around you is clear (to avoid pinching your hand on another dumbbell when putting it down) and that you are using a weight that you are able to handle safely.

Be sure to check out our MacFit360 options or ask any of the team Members at your gym for more information.

What is MYZONE?
Our goal is to help you see results and maximize your workouts. With so many different workout options, it can be hard to know which path to start on. Using your heart rate as your intensity guide is a convenient way to ensure effective workouts, no matter what you choose as your activity.
The World Health Organization recommends 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity per week. This works out to be 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity 5 times per week or 25 minutes of vigorous activity 3 times per week. Using the calendar, map out the days and times for activity that work for you so that it can fit into YOUR lifestyle. Your activity can include taking a Group
Fitness class, playing a sport, doing an active outdoor activity or coming into the gym for a Fit-Fix workout.
Working out in your targeted heart rate zone is the best way to focus on your specific goals and see great results. Depending on your fitness level and age, your heart rate zone will fluctuate. To find out what your training heart rate zone should be, please book a Fitness Starter or Fit Fix Starter or ask an Associate for details.
Working out in the Red and Yellow zones below are considered your vigorous-intensity zones.
Working out in the Blue and Green zones below are considered your moderate-intensity zones.
