Pre-recorded and Live-streaming classes for Fitness Professionals
Wow, its amazing to see so many Fitness Professionals and Fitness Studios adapting to these unusual times.
It’s not easy to step outside of your comfort zone, and for many of us, the thought of standing in front of a camera can often be a little more intimidating than standing in front of a class of 20.
But we have seen some amazing, dare I say… Hollywood stars in the mix. And we’ve been absolutely amazed by the awesomeness of all the classes being delivered. It’s not easy to pivot your business in such a short space of time, but those that have should pat themselves on the back… you are not only true fitness entrepreneurs, but you are the glue that will hold your community together.
Your customers need you more now than ever before, no matter if they’re key workers on the frontline, or at home in isolation, their physical and mental wellbeing will be challenged.
So, how do you become the glue that holds your community together? Here are just four of the most popular online classes that we’ve seen.
1. Home Workouts
By far the most popular, the home workout is an extension of your normal classes… just in the home. These classes can focus on cardio and bodyweight exercises to keep your customers active, you can even add additional revenue through the rental of equipment. Keep your home workout classes regular, if you can stick to your normal schedule all the better. Ensure your workspace is clear, clean, and tidy… you don’t want to be bumping into anything, or having yesterdays laundry on show 🙂
2. Nutritional Advice
Understanding what to eat and how to cook it is often seen as a black art, known only to the few who have endured and become known as… Personal Trainers. You have a wealth of knowledge, and your customers are hungry for it, understanding all those macro’s and micro’s, what to cook and portion sizes can be easily presented in a short cooking class. Have some fun with this, you may not have the skills of Jamie Oliver, but putting on your own healthy cooking slot can really keep your customers engaged.
Everybody has a question, so why not create a dedicated Q&A class. These are not only a great way for you to keep your customers up-to-date, but also allow you to explore new and creative ideas for future classes. Face-to-face (all be it by camera) Q&A’s can provide you with a wealth of information, helping you to spot trends and create new opportunities.
4. Community Chat
With the countrywide isolation, it can be a little lonely out there, and keeping your community together creates a sense of belonging. Invite new members into your community and let your customers talk about you, how you have helped them and how great your community is. See the Community chat as an extended word of mouth referral… open your community to all that are interested.
Remember… keep focused
Don’t forget, you’re providing an invaluable service, don’t undervalue yourself. Even if you feel that you need to adjust your schedule and pricing, make sure that your customers, and new clients, continue to book their class place. With the new ‘Virtual Classes’ feature, you can rest assured that only booked class members will receive a direct invite to join your pre-recorded or Live-streaming classes… and only they will have the ability to attend.
