Here we will show you exactly how our LIVE online classes work and what you need to do in order to take part.

Once you’ve signed up as a member of Zone, you’ll have access to all our live online classes every week. Depending on your membership level, you’ll be able to select from one session a week, or join as many as you like if you’re on our Unlimited Membership. Every Sunday, you’ll be emailed the joining links for all the classes which will be taking place the following week. There is no need to book a session ahead, if you want to join, just click the link to take part. All classes will open 5/10 minutes early to allow for socialising and any technical issues to be addressed.

To take part:

Download the ‘Zoom’ app on your laptop, phone or whichever device you’d like to use to join the sessions.

Once you’ve downloaded Zoom (you don’t need to register and can download as guest if you like), you’re ready to go.

5/10 minutes before the start of the class, click the class link you have been sent to join.

The app should launch the live class session on your screen. If no one else is there yet, you may just be the first, please wait.

As people join the class, you’ll see their videos pop up, you can use this time to have a chat! The trainer will also ask if anyone has any injuries or requires any specific alternatives so they can ensure the session is tailored for you as required.

In the top right hand corner of your screen you’ll be able to click to change between ‘Gallery View’ – this is where you can see everyone participating on your screen – great for the start of the class. If you are on a phone, you may need to swipe to change view.

Zoom ‘Gallery’ View

When it is time to start the class, the trainer will mute all participants, and you should switch to ‘Speaker View’. This way you’ll see the trainer in a large screen, making it easier to follow instruction. Please ensure your device volume is turned up! You’ll also need to position your camera, so that the trainer can ideally see you standing up and working down on your mat/on the floor. Once you’ve done this once, you’ll know the drill for next time!

Zoom ‘Speaker’ View

If at any point during the class (while you are on mute!) you need to ask the trainer something, you can click the button which says ‘Raise a hand’ and the trainer will be notified that you want to talk, and can un-mute you.

After the session, your trainer will un-mute you all and you can switch back to gallery view if you want to say hi/bye to your fellow classmates!
