Myzone has recently launched the world’s first virtual live group workout, MZ-Remote, where you can connect and exercise together, whilst receiving real-time biometric feedback and personalized coaching from a trainer, based on your 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 you choose to workout. Once you connect through the Myzone app, your 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 classes are delivered via integration with Zoom but shown in the Myzone app, so the screen is split between the trainer demonstrating the exercises and the leaderboard. The instructor hosting the class can monitor the collective effort of everyone within the session and provide encouragement using the feedback derived from the color zones.
“Now all Myzone users can use the innovative system to connect and workout together. The trainer, who leads the workout and shows the exercises can call out participants based on how hard they’re working out. Because MZ-Remote shows everyone’s efforts on screen, it’s almost the perfect amount of motivation, and less intimidating than the real-world version at your gym,” says Engadget.
You 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.

What is VO₂ Max?
A VO2 Max Test is a measurement that reflects a person’s ability to perform sustained exercise. It is generally considered the best indicator of cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance. The actual measurement is “milliliters of oxygen used in one minute per kilogram of body weight.” It is suitable for a wide range of individuals, from the sedentary to elite athletes.
The test also determines the number of calories burned during every level of exercise, providing valuable information when designing a weight loss program. And if CO2 is measured during the test, a Respiratory Exchange Ratio (RER) can determine the proportion of energy coming from carbohydrates and fats at various levels of exercise intensity. Since physical conditioning and exercise intensity affect these proportions, this information can be very helpful when designing a workout intended to burn fat.
VO₂ Max Testing is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1. Put on a heart rate strap and face mask.
2. As directed by your trainer, you will start exercising on a treadmill or cycle. You will start at a low intensity, gradually increasing the intensity of exercise over a period of 6 to 20 minutes.
3. When you are finished, your trainer will give you a simple, insightful report that can be uploaded to an easy-to-use app.
To get the most out of your VO2 Max Test, be sure to refrain from exercise or endurance training for 24-hours prior to test, avoid food, tobacco, alcohol, and caffeine for at least 3 hours before testing, and continue medications as usual.
How to set up your VO₂ Max Test

What is Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)
Metabolism, quite simply, is the conversion of food to energy.
Metabolic rate is a measure of how much food, or fat, is converted to energy in a day. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) is the measurement of how much food, or energy, is required to maintain basic body functions such as heartbeat, breathing, and maintenance of body heat while you are in a state of rest. That energy is expressed in calories per day. So an RMR test shows how many calories you burn at rest, doing nothing more than sitting in a chair.
Why Test RMR?
Pinpoint caloric weight loss zone
When restricting calories, knowing a baseline RMR is invaluable. KORR Metabolic Analyzers calculate a “weight loss zone” for 1 ½ pound a week weight loss, or practitioners can use the RMR to calculate a caloric goal unique for their patients.
Proof of “normal” metabolism
Most overweight people are convinced they have a slow metabolism. The truth is that statistically, most overweight and obese individuals have average or higher than average metabolic rates. Taking a measurement removes this excuse. Seeing that their bodies can indeed burn calories can be very encouraging and motivating.
Stabilize weight loss
Regardless of the method used to lose weight, a patient’s RMR will decrease after weight loss. The decrease is actually below the level predicted by fat-free mass (FFM). Although the cause is unclear, it appears that in most cases, if a patient can maintain his new weight for 6 months, his RMR will eventually rise to the expected level. Pinpointing the precise number of calories necessary to maintain is key to surviving this crucial period.
It is desirable to measure a person’s metabolic rate at a true resting level. To ensure one is at rest, we recommend the following preparation:
- Avoid eating a meal 4 hours before the test.
- Avoid exercising on the day of testing.
- If possible, avoid the use of stimulants such as caffeine prior to testing.
- During the test it will be important to get into a comfortable position and relax as much as possible.
- Keep lips sealed lightly around the mouthpiece. It is important that all the air breathed out is analyzed by the machine.
- The test is most accurate if done less than an hour from waking up in the morning.
