Kick Start My Heart Couples Challenge

Pick the person in your life who “Kick Starts Your Heart” for our Healthy Heart Month Challenge – a friend, significant other, family member or someone new! You will hold each other accountable to achieve the needed amount of MEPs to make it to the top.

You and your partner must accept the challenge invite on February 1st and each have your own Myzone belt. Wear your belt for all of your workouts and Myzone will automatically track your MEP’s. Together you’ll race through the fire and flames to the top of the guitar! The catch for this little rock show is only RED and YELLOW MEP’s count.

NEED A PARTNER? Sure! Just let us know you want to play and we will give you a partner to make new friends with!
