Personalize your heart rate monitor/power meter
Everyone is different - measure your fitness level (VO2Max)
and training zones to maximize every workout

Are You Training Smart ?
Introducing Revvo: World's Smartest Exercise Bike
First exercise bike to measure VO2Max & Training Zones without using face masks
Today, this would cost hundreds of dollars at a human performance lab. By simplifying the technology,
Revvo makes it possible for virtually everyone to measure and improve their fitness.
Combines cycling power and heart rate sensors to indirectly measure VO2Max & detect Training Zones
Cycle for 30s, stop 30s & repeat at a higher target - easier to measure your true max
iPAD app guides through the ~15 minute test and walks through the results

Gold Standard Accuracy
97% correlation with gold standard lab testing kit, at a fraction of the cost !

The VO2Max Report
VO2Max is the max oxygen your muscles can utilize and is perhaps the best indicator of fitness and health.
The test provides a scientific assessment of your current fitness level and benchmarks age and sports cohorts
VO2Max is the maximum oxygen your muscles can utilize to produce energy (per kg of bodyweight per minute).
Its like the "engine size of the human body" - higher the score, greater your capacity for physical effort.
Elite athletes typically have twice the VO2Max level of the average human.
And the American Heart Association calls it "the most important correlate of overall health ... and perhaps the strongest predictor for cardiovascular disease".
As we age VO2Max declines by ~1% each year - but this can be reversed through training.
Comparing your score against your age group is a powerful motivator to take action.
Across sports, cross country skiers typically have the highest VO2Max levels, followed by distance runners, rowers and cyclists.
Recovery is the % drop in heart rate, 30 seconds after you stop cycling.
A low recovery could mean that you're training too hard, not sleeping well, stressed out or affected by health issues
Revvo analyzes your heart rate response to different levels of stress to detect your threshold and training zones.
Training zones are a function of genetics, metabolism, and activity status and therefore should be measured for each individual.
The point where you burn the maximum fat calories. Fat burns slowly, so as your intensity rises above your fatmax you'll switch to using more glucose.
The (Lactate / Anaerobic) Threshold is your endurance limit - above the threshold there is excess lactic acid produced, forcing you to slow down when you can't tolerate the burn any more.
This is your aerobic limit i.e. the max oxygen your muscles can utilize to produce energy. You can briefly go above this limit by burning up the glycogen stored in your muscles.
