MyZone Launches the First Virtual Live Group Fitness Class: MZ-Remote
Posted: May 26, 2020 in Suppliers
U.K. – MyZone has recently launched the world’s first virtual live group workout, MZ-Remote, where participants can connect and exercise together, whilst receiving real-time biometric feedback and personalised coaching from a trainer, based on their effort.
MZ-Remote is a live virtual gym training tool that displays the heart rate feedback of all participants on one screen, no matter where they choose to workout. Once participants connect through the Myzone app, their live effort performance is tracked via the MZ-3 heart-rate monitor and is shared with the virtual group, allowing everyone to work out together from their smartphone.
“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,” says What Mobile.
MZ-Remote offers a unique solution when paired with Zoom streaming platform. The instructor hosting the class can monitor the collective effort of everyone within the session and provide encouragement to participants using the feedback derived from the colour zones.
“Now all Myzone users can use the innovative system to connect and workout together. The benefit of the shared feedback on the screen allows for competitiveness which leads to greater encouragement and motivation, just like in a real class,” says OxGadgets.
Participants will be able to enjoy the in-class experience complete with an instructor, and see each other’s real-time effort feedback on their screen, encouraging increased competition, motivation, and results.
Creator and CEO of Myzone, Dave Wright, says, “At a time when physical 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.”
