We have a platform called Shorline at UCSB where the university community can register for our fitness events and Shorline provides the liability forms we can create.
Hello Hannah! I’m Brennan with KRU Active. I’m in St.Pete Beach!!
Is anyone doing Personal Training or Wellness coaching and taking *new* clients from on campus at this time? If so, what are you utilizing to do so and are you taking both RecSports members and nonmembers?
group ex verbally states the waiver or a slide or both?
Angie, that is a great idea!
using zoom, how did you prevent “zoom bombed” ??
Also this is Heather - Dir of Fitness Colorado School of Mines
we had that happen last week
what if more than one person is participaing from that computer for need of more than one waiver?
You can use language that includes all participants
At UDel, we are requiring passwords and requiring UDel email accounts
For group fitness we make students/members register through IM Leagues to to get access to the Zoom link of group fitness classes. Before they can get access to the link, they must check a box that they understand assumption of risk
Anna, do you pay both the instructor and the room monitor?
Ours was sent out to only the student/ faculty list service.
What if you have Rec Center members who do not have the university sign-on for a Zoom class? We have alumni, spouse, dependent, and retiree members who don't have sign-ons.
You can also look into what your university provides. UNC Charlotte asks we use Webex or Google Meet for online fitness. We are getting ready to test it this week so we will have to update on how it actually goes!
Daniel, yes we pay both the instructor and the monitor
They waived the 40 minute limit
Sarah, you can also just provide a password, you don’t have to require the authentication. That’s just an extra measure we take
All of my instructors are non students. Our IT provides them with the UCSB account and we always have someone else as an alternative host.
Perfect, thanks Anna.
At CWRU, they will have the 121 account to do for zoom fitness classes that the instructors will use the company account
Tony, do you pay them? I missed that?
we add them as editors
00:44:49Ashley Artist - Iowa State
yes we give them insta rec login
we add them as editors to our facebook page and then they can go live from there
For facebook , we are adding our instructors as admins on our department Facebook page.
awesome thank you everyone !
My former institution (Florida Southern) has had instructors do it from their own accounts if comfortable.
We use a private group for Facebook Live that is under our facebook page so it's separate but linked. The group has a disclaimer at the top. Instructors only go live inside that group
we add them as a collaborator on our Rec FB page, then remove them afterward
For PT, we are giving complementary training package (2 digital personalized workouts and two 30-minute check ins weekly) to current/active clients who’s packages are frozen. They have the option to opt in and then I send them a google form asking what equipment they have available and to click “I understand” for assumption of risk
@Naomi thank you!
LSUS simply gets the instructors to video themselves and they send to us. we then post on our Facebook page.
How does the liability work through University if instructors are using their own FB and IG sites for posting videos?
We have been putting our instructors as co hosts of zoom. - Adelphi University
Are the classes hosted from the university or do the instructors use their home or other areas?
our instructors are doing from home
did everyone see TRX is offering FREE STC course for your instructors? https://www.linkedin.com/posts/activity-6652947484035334145-lRnN
Our instructors are teaching from their home or outside in their yard.
Our instructors have been filming at home and we found that was the best received form our patrons as they can relate more!
Any instructors who are on campus do videos from our studios to continue giving utilizing that environment but most of our instructors are from home.
00:47:50Ashley Artist - Iowa State
Yes I saw that too!! awesome TRX!!
Also encourage our instructors to use home items for the workouts (milk jugs, laundry detergent etc) as our patrons do not have actual weights at home
If you have a pro account on Zoom I believe you can add people via email and give them access to pro account - meaning you can offer a class longer than 40 min.
Students are able to use their own accounts for their own classes or videos but anything that comes from our University accounts or pages have to go through the liability process
I think the TRX free courses are already full!
I'd be concerned about noise outside, so having a controlled environment such as a living room or office is a good idea.
we are doing the same thing as Cheyanne is doing. we have scheduled all fitness classes and then will add our instructors who are not employees as co-hosts
Just wanted to let everyone know that I am copying all your questions down so we can go back to them and chat about them in case we don’t pick them up right away!
Are there any closed captioning capabilities with kruactive?
Is this available for Canadian schools
What is everyone doing about music for your virtual classes
We are doing the same at NC State as Anna /Texas A&M when it comes to closed captioning
We ask our instructors to make sure music is not copyrighted or to not use music at all. One of our instructors (more famously an internet sensation) posted a great video about doing online classes https://www.facebook.com/DrLaurenFitz/videos/10222009574773616/UzpfSTEzODgyODEyNzU6MTAyMjIxMDU4MjY4NTk4NTg/
I am in the same situation
Hello Paige. If you can contact KRU Active through the web site and we can discuss the Closed Caption options. Thanks!
we post spotify playlists people can play along with the class, we also post the playlist a day in advance so if you use another music service you can try to create the playlist yourself
We have a student run the comments for now
If anyone has questions about music licensing please contact email@example.com
We have closed captioning through our media hub at UNL website or amara.org does CC & youtube also!
I think there’s value in just posting the workout after the class for those who need closed captions
Brainstorming zoom award ceremony
we’re having our banquet via zoom
For student recognition
Synch Music International has over 1000 songs that have royalty free complete publishing and video synch rights - you can get more info at www.synchmusicnow.com
We're conducting our CREW Banquet on Zoom as well
jenn from UBC Okanagan, we did an virtual banquet through Instagram.
We are looking at hosting an event during Homecoming. Graduation has already been moved to August. I believe we will be doing something special prior to the end of this semester for those that are graduating.
do a kahoot game for a gift card during zoom meeting to be fun and engaging.
How are students receiving these virtual banquets/awards? Are they highly attended?
We can’t purchase awards right now, but when we can, we plan to either have them pick them up or mail them if they are not able to come to the facility
We can't require student staff to work during this time but we are providing them options to do Continue Education online if they want.
TRX is full I thought?
Are there any other free/reduced costs certifications going on?
what is everyone doing in regards to CYCLE ckasses?
ACE had half off all of their certifications last week, not sure if they are still doing that
can someone send the link for that free trx certification
NASM/AFAA had a free CEU course going on at one point.
Those doing these trainings, evaluations, PT sessions and GFI classes with students, can you confirm if you are paying your students?
barre above is doing virtual certification - not discounted $249
We are paying our instructors and trainers.
would yall be interested in precor hosting a training webinar for your spinning instuctors?
We are paying our students
We are paying our students
Induro Cycling offers online certification with 7 CECs for ACE, NASM, NETA and AFAA www.indurocycling.com and offering a 50% discount so the workshop is only $99
We are using these resources to pay instructors after they watch: ACSM YouTube Content https://www.youtube.com/user/ACSM1954
We are having to cancel a Barre cert at Udel. Did I understand that NIRSA has a resource page with free or discounted certifications?
We’re paying our students for their scheduled classes through the end of the semester and encouraging them participate in our live/recorded classes
If this call is recorded, will the comments be available to read as well?
Yes, comments will be available
Serita, my GA is creating that list. We are happy to share :)
Zach, yes, would like a training webinar for spinning instructors for CECs. Would it require a bike? Not sure if many of them have a stationary bike at home.
Shannon from UT is great, she did a workshop for our students at UH! would recommend.
HAHAH she is Courtney! That who is doing it!
Hilary Hartman - Cardio Sport (The Workout of Sports)! we are presently offering free access to all students and staff who sign up for our VIRTUAL certification workshops with reduced sign up fees and free access to our daily on demand workout system to keep them excited and motivated! Feel free to workshops
that is something we did as well, members were happy!
email firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-737-7312
what was the cycle site just mentioned?
Hello Holly. It is www.indurocycling.com
The certification is BPM Cycle®
So my depart is more a community based gym (although I am in the rec based), we are creating several challenges
Anna, that will be most helpful (email@example.com), as we have several student instructors graduating and are encouraging our other instructors consider other certifications
The challenges will include a weekly challenge, a bingo card, and a book club
our IMS is also doing a virtual run challenge throughout april to win a t shirt or prize !
We will host a virtual 5k on the same day we were set to have our Double Decker run
I love the virtual 5K idea!!!
We are also doing a Virtual walk/run with other Wisconsin schools. Just got everything finalized today :)
yes please- details on this! we had to cancel ours
we are doing one too and offering a training plan through our online PTs and we will mail out shirts
Hi from Sacred Heart University in CT - no community engagement, but we are working with our Alumni Office and are offering our online fitness classes to the Alumni. We do not offer Alumni memberships, so this is new for us! Free of charge
Sac State is also doing a virtual 5k and Couch to 5k training
Our virtual 5k is hosted by our MLK Student Center and it is open to all community members. The training that we will offer will include cardio, strength and flexibility classes for members signed up for the 5k as well as "Trainer Chats" to share information and resources
Here at Springfield College we are doing a step challenge and a separate 100 mile run challenge through Strava (fitness app)
We are hoping to continue some of our virtual Group Fitness classes during the semester. We've always wanted to go live during some of our regular classes and this will give us the push to go through with it.
how are you setting up the run program through Strava? Did you create a club?
NRC app currently doing a 50k challenge for the month. Have 100K option too
If continue to do virtual group fitness in addition to regular classes in the future, do you or will you have a charge for classes? Our program charges for group fitness.
Rachel that is what we have done. Set up the club on Strava
Thanks Chris! Such a cool idea!
Yes, Theresa we do charge. We will have to work through what that will look like.
Anna, I would be interested further in how to set that up.
hey everyone, wanted to hear your thoughts on hosting a virtual product "lunch and learn" the Monday & Tuesday 4/20 & 4/21 the days original scheduled for NIRSA Expo...thoughts? thanks in advance for your feedback...
Hello Leanne. I’m not sure if you heard me announce it earlier but KRU Active can set up a complimentary branded channel for your fitness center so you can live stream and offer on-demand videos of your classes. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or see the other channels that are on the platform at www.kruactive.com
I'd be interested in the "lunch and learn"
YES!! We did our 5K last year through Strava. The group enjoyed it the connection
Isn’t Strava a paid app? What do you about that?
it's free. If you want the "premium" version you can pay, but you don't have to
No it is free
Have to sign off. Great ideas! Thanks for hosting.
Thanks for joining Alexia!
My previous institution they are sharing our fitness videos so that also helps with engagement from places out of our region also and sharing throughout facebook for familiar faces
We’re being roadblocked by the dept who handles online platform creations.
Biggest roadblock, is figuring out how to engage those participants that are starting to 'fall off the wagon'. We have a pretty big following etc, but just really wanting to keep people active and engaged.
We’re trying to mimic Florida States site but receiving massive pushback
has anyone heard anything about when we could possible re open?
We are on boarding a new GA this summer, I think transition is a great topic
How to keep student workers/employees engaged. We are paying employees through the end of the semester for the number of hours they were supposed to work... but are finding if people are getting paid no matter what, they don't feel like they have to keep working.
transition ^^ and engagement
One of my roadblocks is similar to Scarlett’s, people are responding less and less to emails and being less engaged overall. So just trying to figure out how to get people back with the program.
When will your campus start “charging” for virtual personal training? And when will you start deducting virtual training out of package purchased prior to a facility closure?
I came in late and may have missed music licensing for classes on social media/Zoom and how schools are handling that.
is anyone doing video auditions for hiring fitness pros?
Yes, I've love to discuss more Personal Training and/or Wellness Coaching options and programs next round if anyone has anything
Thanks so much everyone! These has been so helpful for me!
01:28:21Ashley Artist - Iowa State
yes we are doing audition videos as we have a training course and usually auditions at the end of the semester
We aren’t able to pay our What is everyone doing with limited resources?
I would love to continue to hear virtual solutions. also do people use MINDBODY? if so do you use the new “Video” options?
*pay our students
Great Job Anna and Cheyenne!
Hello Lauren. Feel free to contact me after the roundtable at email@example.com I am happy to discuss music licensing with you and can offer you a complete library
