Myzone appoints Jay Worthy as Group Chief Executive
April 11, 2024

Former President of Life Fitness and Vice President at Brunswick Corporation, Jay Worthy, has been appointed as Myzone’s Group Chief Executive to steer the company through its next period of innovation and international growth.

After a series of global leadership roles across the industry, Worthy led Life Fitness through a successful private equity transaction in 2019 before joining its former parent company, Brunswick, spearheading international expansion and new business ventures.   His strong track record of leading international growth and driving technology evolution and innovation perfectly positions him to lead the next phase of Myzone’s global growth strategy.

Worthy enthused “I am incredibly excited to join the team at Myzone. I’ve used Myzone consistently for more than four years and am honoured to have the opportunity to lead a business that has supported my own wellbeing journey as well as hundreds of thousands of individuals around the world, through its unique, community-driven wearable technology.”

The move will see current Group Chief Executive, David Stalker, step into an advisory role where he will continue to support global expansion and networking projects.

Stalker added “after 35 years at the forefront of the fitness industry, I have decided to step down from my day-to-day duties at Myzone to prioritise spending time with my family and to pursue other business interests. The last five years have been an incredible journey with Myzone. I am proud of what we have accomplished together and I am delighted to remain involved as a strategic advisor. Jay and I have been long-time friends and colleagues in the industry and his appointment brings a fresh perspective and a wealth of knowledge to help drive future growth.”

Worthy added “I would like to thank David Stalker for his leadership and the strong foundations he has put in place. I very much look forward to working with him and the leadership team on this next phase of Myzone’s journey, breaking down barriers and getting more people engaged in meaningful movement.”

Worthy commenced in his new role with Myzone on 10th April 2024, and will be joining the Myzone leadership team at FIBO to meet with existing partners and explore new opportunities.

Talking about the appointment, Myzone founder, Dave Wright shared “I’m thrilled to welcome Jay as the new Group CEO of Myzone. His extensive industry experience, not to mention his personal Myzone Hall of Fame status, uniquely positions him to lead the company through this next phase of growth. I’d also like to express my heartfelt appreciation to David Stalker for his support, leadership and dedication to Myzone. His continued involvement will be instrumental as we move forwards.”

In the short term, Myzone will remain focused on developing  MZ-Open, its ecosystem access for club members via Apple and Android smartwatches. Longer-term, the Myzone leadership team will be focused on expanding the brand’s worldwide reach and influence, supporting industry bodies, club operators and international governments in their bid to tackle the World’s inactivity crisis via connecting the world through effort and movement.

The Myzone team will be attending FIBO, 11th-14th April, Cologne Exhibition Centre and will be exhibiting in Hall 7 on stand C04.

For gym owners, personal trainers, strength and conditioning coaches, and instructors, Myzone creates connected fitness experiences that keep communities moving. Myzone is used in over 9000 facilities across 84 countries. With MZ-Open, it’s now also accessible on Apple and Android smartwatches. Join us, united by movement, measured in MEPs.
