Coming soon... Online Class Launch
What is an online class?
It is a workout session delivered in real time over the internet with the participants able to interact with each other and the instructor.
You get the benefit of being able to catch up with your gym buddies, get feedback from the instructor and be motivated to work hard with a structure and timetable. Just like our studio timetable but without having to leave the safety of your own home!
All of our instructors are highly experienced and fully qualified. You will see many of your favorite classes on the timetable, adapted for the home environment.
Who can take part?
Anyone with any current membership at the club gets access to these classes for free for your whole household.
If you had to suspend your membership due to the virus outbreak but would like to take part in the online classes, you can do so for just £12.50 per month. Similarly, if you'd prefer to downgrade your existing membership to just the online classes, just get in touch. In either case, email us on email@example.com or DM our social media platforms and we will get you set up.
How to book?
Once the online classes go live, all the classes will be listed on our website timetable. For every class you want to take part in you will need to let us know - otherwise we will not know to send you the link that gives you online access. You let us know by booking a place via our website.
To book you will need an online booking code. If you booked our classes online before the lockdown this will be the same booking code. If you haven’t got a code or need a new one just email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or DM our social media platforms and we will get you set up. The booking code is unique to you so won't work if you pass it on to another household.
You will need to book your class at least 20 minutes before the start time. If you leave it until the last minute we may miss you when we send the invites out.
How do I take part in a class?
The classes will be hosted on a free app called Zoom. You will need to have this app downloaded on device with a camera, speaker and microphone - such as a laptop, tablet, ipad or smartphone.
If you have booked a place in a class, approximately 20 minutes before the class is due to start, we will send you a link to allow access to the class online. The link will come via text to your phone and email. Please make sure we have up to date contact details for you. If you are not sure if we have, just email us on email@example.com or DM our social media platforms and we will get things updated for you.
On the device where you have Zoom installed click on the invite link (text or email) and Zoom will open and admit you to the class. Once you are in the virtual class, set your camera and microphone as you want them. You don’t have to share your video if you don't want to be seen (the instructor can't help you if you go wrong though) and you don’t have to have your microphone on if you don't want to chat.
It's a chance to say hello to the other participants, catch up with everyone and get ready to work out. The instructor will stop you chatting and get you working at the right time, just like at the club! :-)
You need an online booking code from us and Zoom downloaded to a suitable device.
Use the booking code on our class booking page to book your place and join the class by using the link we send you for Zoom. Simple!
You will need a bit of space at home to workout in, clear of hazards. You won’t need any other gym equipment but a mat, a drink and a sweat towel will probably enhance your comfort.
You are participating at your own risk and should not do so if you have any health concerns.
Where can I get tech help?
We get that not everyone is good with technology so if you need a hand give us a shout. While we can only be of limited assistance in real time during the class we can get you sorted with the app, etc. beforehand so if you fancy giving it a go please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or DM our social media platforms and we will show how it all works and give you a demo before all your pals are online laughing at you! :-)
