FunXtion expanding with heart-rate monitoring feature
Seamless integration of MYZONE and FunXtion

FunXtion is expanding with a new feature for heart rate monitoring, with a seamless integration with MYZONE. FunXtion is bringing together the world's most popular forms of training: amaze your members with both high-intensity training and heart rate monitoring in one single platform.
FunXtion is an interactive coaching platform comprising a mobile app for members and the FunXtion Experience Station (FES): a huge iPhone in your club in front of which members can do a number of challenging, high-intensity training sessions together or on their own. That way, FunXtion makes fitness more fun.

Heart rate visible directly on the FES
FunXtion is now expanding. Thanks to the integration with MYZONE members can see and follow their heartbeat directly during workouts. The results achieved are automatically monitored and stored with a MYZONE heartbeat meter in the personal My FunXtion account.

The best of two worlds
The collaboration between FunXtion and MYZONE combines the best of two worlds in one system. FunXtion co-founder Mendel Witzenhausen explains: ‘Up to now it was only possible to offer high-intensity training and heart rate monitoring separately from each other. Now this can be done at the same time in one system. With the FunXtion Experience Station members can combine their high-intensity training with heart rate monitoring. That makes the experience even more fun. What's more, both FunXtion and MYZONE use aspects of gamification which we believe is more likely to motivate people to exercise.’
Future: delivery of programming
The integration also offers major opportunities for MYZONE Dave Wright, CEO of MYZONE, says: 'The future of the fitness industry lies in delivering programming and feedback. MYZONE is delighted to have partnered with innovative manufacturer and programming experts from FunXtion, as they deliver their system to clubs around the world.”
