How a LiveStream Personal Training Session Works

Are you curious how a personal training session takes place via LIVEStream?
We recorded a little video to show our clients some of the best practices in getting set up for success for a LIVEStream Training Session and we thought you might also enjoy a look at the mechanics of how we are making this all work.

Here is the rundown of how to get set up for success and what to expect in a LIVEStream Personal Training Session:

You will register for your session – as always via Pike13. The ZOOM meeting ID is included in training session name on Pike13.

You will open ZOOM and enter the meeting ID.  OR – you can click the ZOOM link that is emailed to you from Pike13 with your registration confirmation. You will enter the password associated with the meeting – you will receive this after you register for your session.

You will be put into a waiting room until the trainer either starts the meeting or adds you to the session. When you join the meeting you will see the gallery view – a bunch of little squares.

Normally, there is a couple of minutes to say hi and get your camera set up. You want to be sure that the trainer can see your full body – toes to nose!

When the session kicks off, you will want to first click the 3 little dots to ‘pin the speaker’. Then switch to ‘speaker view’ – this will make it so that the trainer’s screen is the only screen that you see.

The trainer will likely mute you and the rest of the participants to eliminate any distractions from the training sessions and you can huff and puff and blast your Beyonce as loud as you want.

If you have a question, you can make an X with your hands and the trainer will unmute you to answer your question. Thumbs up means it’s all is good!

During the training session, you don’t need to worry about anyone but the trainer watching you – everyone is going to be so focused on the trainer and what they are doing.

You can expect to get a TON of coaching in REAL TIME to ensure proper technique and form.  The trainer is coaching you from a BIG SCREEN TV in the gym and is able to help you make adjustments so that you get the most out of the training session.

We are using only body weight in these training sessions.  Training with body weight is an incredible way to learn your body, build strength and stamina, and properly engage your muscles.

Be sure to take breaks when you need them.  These training sessions are HARD and they are not designed for you to make it the full time.  We are always going to encourage you to take a little break when you need it so that you can come back to the movement with proper form and technique.

SO that is it – hope this was helpful!  Please let us know if you have any questions at all!

Lots of love,

Wilcox Wellness & Fitness
