Myzone – the effort-based wearable fitness brand enjoyed by over 1.5 million users worldwide – is launching MZ-Remote – the world’s first virtual live group workout where participants can connect and exercise together, whilst receiving real-time biometric feedback and personalised coaching from a trainer based on their effort.
The pioneering system allows Myzone users to connect and workout together on one screen, and uniquely, the platform incorporates live heart-rate feedback as well as bespoke coaching for all participants. This underscore the company’s commitment to social connectedness despite physical distancing still being in place during lockdown.
MZ- Remote is provided by a Myzone Master Trainer and is available via the Myzone app. Once participants connect through the Myzone app, their live effort performance is tracked via the brand’s MZ-3 heart-rate monitor and is shared with the virtual group, allowing everyone to work out together from their smartphone. Seeing each other’s live feedback on screen encourages competition and motivation, just like in a real class.
The MZ-3 heart-rate monitor provides users with real-time feedback on heart-rate and calories which is converted into Myzone Effort Points (MEPs). Boasting 99.4% accuracy, MZ-3 connects with the free Myzone app, to display user’s personalised effort feedback in five simple colour-coded zones.
Dave Wright, CEO of Myzone, comments: “At a time when physically distancing is necessary, it is essential to stay socially connected. We wanted to provide our Myzone community with a way to do this through exercise. MZ-Remote differs from other live virtual fitness classes as we do not just simply broadcast our class, we provide personalised coaching to all participants based on their live effort feedback, which everyone else in the workout can also see. Since lockdown we have had thousands of new users join every week, so we are very excited to launch MZ-Remote where our Myzone community
can stay both physically and mentally fit by working out together, remotely.”
MZ-Remote will be available on the Myzone app from 21st May, and the accompanying Myzone MZ-3 heart-rate monitor is available to purchase from myzone.org.
