Velocity Five-0 is a four-week course of high-intensity training at Massey Sport and Recreation Centre in Palmerston North — offering a variety of sessions, the support of personal trainers, Myzone heart rate monitoring, and a focus on effort not your fitness level.
Classes are limited to just five people and are 50 minutes of high-intensity exercises designed to help you meet your personal fitness goals. You can choose to do one or two sessions each week.
Each session is designed and led by a qualified personal trainer. Your programme also changes every week.
A circuit-based session where participants exercise then rest for specific timeframes. Perform as many repetitions as you can in the allocated time before you move on to the next exercise.
Complete exercises from the board over a 50-minute period. Once you're done with each exercise, you can wipe it off the board.
A session of descending and ascending repetitions. Work your way through each round of repetitions to complete the session and beat the pyramid!
A wide range of exercise modalities (methods and equipment) to make up 50 in total: think 50 repetitions, 50 sets, 50 calories, 50 seconds — even 50 exercises. If it has something to do with 50 you can find it in this session.
Training approach and Myzone tracking
Velocity Five-0 is Myzone heart rate monitoring-supported training.
Your heart rate intensity and effort is wirelessly projected onto a television screen. You can compare and compete with your group during each session and throughout the course.
Velocity Five-0 focuses on effort, not fitness.
- Myzone points system rewards your personal effort based on your metrics.
- You can go as easy or as hard as you want.
Trainers can also adapt exercises to suit your needs. If you have a knee injury, for instance, talk to your trainer.
You need to pay for Velocity Five-0 separately from your gym membership if you have one. Prices are:
- $50 for four weeks at one session per week
- $80 for four weeks at two sessions per week
Courses and sessions are non-refundable if you don't attend.
All sessions must also be used within the allocated course block. If you are unable to attend your regular session for a given week, you can only request a different session within the same week.
We will send you payment details once your registration is complete.
