Virtual Classes and home workouts
Keeping your virtual doors open… How you can offer home workouts to your fitness community and maintain your income.
It’s life gym, but not as we know it. We are living in uncertain times, and no one is sure for how long it may last. As we navigate the new normal, you may well be thinking of ways to preserve your clients’ mental and physical wellbeing outside of your fitness studio. Regular exercise and social interaction is one important way to do this, and while virtual classes will never match the high-energy of your studio class, they’re still likely to leave your clients feeling amazing.
Haven’t hosted a virtual class before? Worried about maintaining your income? Not a problem! Whilst fitness studio owners navigate new territories to maintain their businesses, a young company in Torquay, Devon, is working hard to make your life easy.
GO Retrieve is now providing all of its customers with the ability to host their own virtual classes through its cloud-based management system.
“In light of recent developments, we wanted to offer our customers the ability to maintain their businesses through these uncertain times,” said GO Retrieve co-founder Lee Wilson.
“We are aware that it is highly likely that the government will ask fitness studios to close their doors for a period of time, which means they’ll need to adapt to stay alive. Stepping into the unknown world of paid online classes is an additional pressure many independent owners could do without, and that is why we’re adding virtual classes to GO Retrieve as standard.”
The virtual class integration, which will be added to GO Retrieve on Monday 23rd March, provides fitness studio owners with the option to provide paid virtual classes to all of its members. Clients will book their virtual classes in the same way as their normal classes, online or through their branded App. Before the class starts each class member will receive an automated push notification and email link to enable them to join their local studio online.
