MZ-Burn is a selection of ‘classes’ featured within the Myzone software and allows operators to easily deliver a group cardio and functional training experience as seen in many boutique studios. Myzone has created five classes titled - ‘Unity’, ‘Orbit’, ‘Trilogy’, ‘Elevate’, and ‘Circuit’, all of which are available in the Myzone software right now. The MZ-Burn program centers around 5 different cardio stations to provide variety and to cater for all ages, shapes, sizes, and most of all, fitness levels.
The fundamentals of MZ-Burn is that they consist of 50% of a user’s time spent on cardio equipment and 50% spent on the functional kit. (With the exception of Burn Trilogy which will comprise of 33% spent on
cardio and 67% on functional/ bodyweight exercises.)
What Is Required?
Clubs will need a Myzone Ultron Tablet, and it is suggested that 2 TV’s are visible in the main group training area, one for the cardio and one for the functional area. The Myzone computer
must be connected to the internet and if connected to an audio player, music can also be played through it.

How to Set Up MZ-Burn Classes
The number of pieces per cardio station will determine the overall capacity of the class. Ie. 2 pieces
of each cardio station will mean 10 pieces in total - amounting to either 20 or 30 maximum class sizes.
4 items per cardio station will mean 20 pieces in total and amounting to 40 or 60 maximum class sizes.
The total class size will depend on the desired space and budget. Cardio (2-10 of each item will allow a capacity class size of 30-150 people):
Some suggested items are as follows but can be any cardio kit desired: Rowers, Treadmills, Bikes, Airbikes.
The functional kit for MZ-Burn will depend on the individual amount of cardio pieces as they
will determine a ‘station’. ie. If you have 2 pieces per cardio station, then you’d only need to
accommodate 2 pieces per functional station (for Orbit, Trilogy, Elevate, and Circuit programs).
Examples of equipment: Plyo boxes, Battle Ropes, Punch bags, Skipping ropes, Suspension Trainers,
