At the YMCA of the Triangle, we know fitness involves more than working out. It's about making good choices to live well inside and out. You’re not only supported by our staff, but you’re also part of a community that helps you be your best self at every age.
Whether you’re looking to lose weight, get stronger, eat healthier, fight disease, improve your energy, or lower stress, we have people and programs in place to help.
The YMCA is offering a wearable heart rate tracker that will motivate you, connect you with others, and help you reach your wellness goals. The Myzone wearables will be available for sale beginning in February.
When you use your Myzone wearable you can see your effort, heart rate, and calories burned in our fitness studios.
