App of the Year

at FIT Summit Awards of Excellence

Myzone has been awarded App of The Year in the 2023 FIT Summit Awards of Excellence.

At a ceremony in Singapore in front of fitness industry leaders from around the world, Myzone won the accolade against strong competition, as part of The FIT Summit World Health, Fitness & Wellness Festival.

“We’re on a continuous journey to make products that get more people moving,” explains Leon Rudge, global head of product at Myzone. “There’s been so much hard work from the entire Myzone team in evolving the app, the in-club software and the accompanying hardware; it’s recognition such as this that cements our belief in leading the way for engaging experiences using innovative technology.

“With a redesigned interface to improve UX/UI in 2022, Myzone movers can take on individual or group Remote workouts with real-time data, and operators benefit from club branded app opportunities and open APIs. There’s so much more to come and thanks to the FIT Summit team and award judges for this prestigious title.”

The App of the Year category featured entrants from any fitness, wellness or lifestyle app (B2C and/or B2B). The award was based on: an app’s positive impact on the consumer and/or industry; strength and depth of content; UX design functionality and responsiveness; new growth in APAC; future growth possibility across APAC; and the potential impact of future iterations.

“Our 2022 App of the Year Award was hotly contested with some of the world’s most successful fitness and wellness platforms in contention,” says Ross Stewart Campbell, founder & CEO, FIT Summit and Active Franchising.

“Myzone triumphed proving they continue to make great strides forward in leading member

engagement and experience. From new features, new UX/UI and design, alongside the successful development of MZ-Remote, all contributed to their success.

“Congrats to the Myzone team for a fantastic year of innovation.”

“Thank you to the judging panel which was made up of the top fitness industry execs in the Asia Pacific region,” says Emmett Williams, CEO Myzone APAC. “The recognition of our efforts at Myzone to evolve with the needs of the industry is most appreciated; ever more so because the nominee list was of such a high calibre.  

“We face a consumer who is now exercising in a different way to the way they did prior to the pandemic. Our data shows us that, pre-pracademic, Myzone movers worked out 60% of the time in the gym and 40% of the time outside of the gym.

“That ratio has now flipped, and is not showing any signs of regaining its original form. We will continue to evolve our offering to support clubs as they aspire to create competitive advantage with member community, member results and an omni-channel offering that engages members.”

The App of the Year award comes off the back of another recent success with Myzone winning the FIBO Innovation and Trend Award in the category of Health and Prevention for the MZ-Switch.

Wellonomics and Myzone making the moves to unite more people through physical activity.

In a move to raise awareness of physical activity benefits far beyond the reach of the traditional fitness industry, Myzone is excited to announce a new partnership with wellbeing experts, Wellonomics.

Wellonomics offers businesses a proactive approach to enhancing happiness and wellbeing within the workplace and employees have access to confidential assessment, insight and support in the six wellbeing areas of Sleep, Health, Stress, Social, Financial and Work.

In order for businesses to understand how collective employees feel about life and their state of wellbeing both inside and outside of work, they are provided with actionable wellbeing analytics, insights and data trends. The Wellonomics app will use Myzone functionality to engage and encourage physical activity for individuals and within teams of employees.

“Approaching digital initiatives as partners and as part of a greater community is vital in bringing the benefits of physical activity to more people,” explains David Stalker, CEO Myzone EMEA. “Through heart rate training, employees and individuals can improve their health with education, understanding that movement goals can be achieved through incremental change. 

“In addition, this two-way partnership means that, by using the Wellonomics survey within Myzone, we can also evolve what we do for our people. This ensures we continue to better to understand our employees’ needs and raise our own standards so teams around the globe can work happier, healthier and more effectively for our communities and partnerships.”

Myzone is available as a bespoke company-wide solution for Wellonomics clients, integrating into the Wellonomics app so all features that benefit staff wellbeing are available at the tap of a screen. This increases employee engagement, provides fun opportunities for healthy competition, and continues to accurately track physical activity data in-line with World Health Organization guidelines.

“Wellbeing is complex,” added Glen Thurgood, Wellonomics CEO. “This partnership is about bringing together industry leading companies that accurately measure and provide positive wellbeing change through enhanced employee engagement.

“Many factors can affect your wellbeing, and solely focussing on one aspect is not going to provide you with the optimal result. You may not even know what actually affects your wellbeing.

“That being said, our acutely accurate Wellonomics Assessment helps to highlight some of the areas which are relevant to you and through our Wellonomics App we can help you to explore your World of Wellonomics where we have world-class expertise and programmes to help you in every way possible.”
