12 members from Manor gym have decided to set a new world record, and lock themselves in a basement gym over the longest day of the year to raise £40,000 and awareness for mental health.

The team members are working hard to prepare for the event, raise money and work out how to prepare for no sleep while working full time in their respective jobs. The team consists of:

Rhys White
Gareth Ship

Alex Simpson

“We’re so proud and excited to support such an incredible event for such a worthy cause,” explains David Stalker, CEO of Myzone EMEA. “Myzone is all about effort, and the amount that this team will be putting in over the course of the World Record breaking workout session is deserving of every penny donated for Rock2Recovery.”

Farm Fitness picks Myzone to help develop their effort-focused outdoor fitness concept
Myzone is kicking off a new partnership with Farm Fitness as its official heart rate monitor partner for its outdoor and soon-to-open indoor training facility.

Myzone will use its heart rate zone technology to create a fair playing field for all members of the Farm Fitness community to compete. With a diverse audience of aged seven years old to over 60, the importance of rewarding effort and not ability is key to Farm Fitness’ inclusive community atmosphere.

“We’re excited to see the adoption of Myzone by Farm Fitness to help continue growing and engaging its community,” explains David Stalker, CEO Myzone EMEA. “Knowing their team’s resolution to keep members motivated and to provide the greatest sense of community possible, this new partnership with Myzone creates an idyllic addition to this unique fitness site.”

Installing a large screen within the facilities will allow all Farm Fitness members to recognise, in real time, the effort that they’re putting in, both indoors and out. While also allowing founder Tom and his team to empathise with each member during their workout and embracing the community’s competitive side by gamifying their workout experience.

“We have chosen to incorporate Myzone into Farm Fitness to further allow us to engage with our members both in, and out of our classes,” added Tom Kemp, Farm Fitness founder. “Community is at the heart of our ethos, and we believe that through the introduction of Myzone, we can enhance the team comradery experienced by our members, visitors and annual competitors.”

To celebrate the set-up of Myzone within the facility, Myzone trainer Billy Burchett will host an exclusive Farm Fitness Cardio Club at the outdoor site at 8:30am on 5th March. All Myzone members will be able to join Billy and the Farm Fitness community via the Myzone app.

Following this event there is going to be a competitive three-part fitness series ‘Functional vs Obstacle, powered by Myzone’. Farm Fitness and its functional fitness community will go head-to-head with Rumble’s obstacle course racing team, in three unique challenges that will push both teams to their competitive limits.

Installing a large screen within the facilities will allow all Farm Fitness members to recognise, in real time, the effort that they’re putting in, both indoors and out. While also allowing founder Tom and his team to empathise with each member during their workout and embracing the community’s competitive side by gamifying their workout experience.

“We have chosen to incorporate Myzone into Farm Fitness to further allow us to engage with our members both in, and out of our classes,” added Tom Kemp, Farm Fitness founder. “Community is at the heart of our ethos, and we believe that through the introduction of Myzone, we can enhance the team comradery experienced by our members, visitors and annual competitors.”

To celebrate the set-up of Myzone within the facility, Myzone trainer Billy Burchett will host an exclusive Farm Fitness Cardio Club at the outdoor site at 8:30am on 5th March. All Myzone members will be able to join Billy and the Farm Fitness community via the Myzone app.

Following this event there is going to be a competitive three-part fitness series ‘Functional vs Obstacle, powered by Myzone’. Farm Fitness and its functional fitness community will go head-to-head with Rumble’s obstacle course racing team, in three unique challenges that will push both teams to their competitive limits.
