Each person’s numbers are personalized based off of their fitness level and goals.
As you work out, your heart rate, calories burned, and MEPS (effort points) are monitored and displayed on our wall monitor for you and your trainer.
The goal is to work out at your Peak Zone (See Step 3 for more details) which is personalized for your own fitness level and goals.
In the photo above, you will see the board showing the current status of the members working out.

Your Peak Zone is customized using science’s best medical advances (VO2 max test) for fitness. Using the VO2 test and many other variables your peak zone is generated at an 80% percentile mark using the MyZone software.
One person’s 80% effort may be walking on the treadmill, and another person’s 80% might be running at 8mph.
Each person, therefore, gets the exact workout they need for their specific goals, such as weight loss, toning, health, bulking, endurance, training, etc..
Each member’s fitness level is continually assessed and the effort level is adjusted.
In the photo above, you can see that most of the members are right at the 80% with a couple of exceptions and so the trainers are busy slowing them down or stepping them up.
Watch this video to learn more about VO2 Max testing.
After we perfect your workouts using the VO2 test, we will perfect your nutrition using a Basil Metabolic Test.
Once we have your testing results and know your current fitness level, we’ll work with you to develop your own nutrition program, individualized to you and what you are willing to commit to.
You will receive a 30 page book that will teach you how to be a nutrition and supplement manipulator as well as a complete personalized grocery list of foods.
You’ll find a huge variation in workouts utilizing treadmills, water rowers, bosu balls, barbells, dumbbells, medicine balls, suspension trainers, kettlebells, dynabells, steppers, and other equipment to keep things new and different.

Donny Day has every major certification in the fitness industry. He has personally mentored over 1200 personal trainers. He has knowledge of big corporate gyms, 1-on-1 personal training, group classes, and every other system.
With his extensive experience, he created the unique Peak Zone Fitness program to fill what he saw as a gap in the industry: 1-on-1 personal training in a group setting that is truly individualized to specific client needs. It’s a program in which clients are using science to eliminate guessing as well as giving every client a vast knowledge about fitness and nutrition.
He created a program that not only gives clients the most knowledge possible but gives the trainers a greater collective wealth of knowledge than any single certification could.
Peak Zone Fitness Trainers have to complete a 400 page book and 600 hours of hands on training before they begin running the program. This is why Peak Zone Fitness has been on FOX, THE CW, The Advocate, D-Magazine, and other media outlets.
