See Your Results as You Work Out
In real time, the 9ROUND PULSE™ in-club display shows your effort level, heart rate, calories burned, and PULSE Points earned during your workout. Color-coded heart rate zones make it easy to see your effort level at a glance.
How It Works
- You wear your 9ROUND PULSE™ belt during your workout.
- As you work out, the device tracks how hard you’re working and displays your effort rating, your heart rate and calories burned on a monitor inside the 9Round club.
- You can easily see if you’re in your optimal fat burning zone and adjust your effort up or down as needed.
- View your results and progress any time from the app or your online account. Your results are also emailed to you after each workout.
STAY IN THE FAT BURNING ZONE
Benefits of 9Round Pulse™
Your heart rate is the ideal metric that determines how much effort it takes to burn fat and improve your cardio. Heart rate tracking helps you maximize the results you get from every 30-minute 9Round workout.
Adapts to Your Fitness Level
The more physically fit you are, the more effort it takes to get your heart rate up. But all you have to do is keep your heart rate in the optimal heart rate zone, and you’ll continue to get results.
Your real-time heart rate and color-coded heart rate zones continuously show you whether you’re getting the most from your workout. Your results summary is emailed to you after each workout.
Live heart rate tracking motivates you to put in the necessary effort because you have a specific target to shoot for.
Compete against yourself or others with the live in-club display.
Points Make it Simple
You accumulate pulse points for every minute you spend in each heart rate training zone. The harder you work, the more points you accumulate.
