Welcome to Be Fab – Be You Group Online Fitness Training FAQ!

I’m so excited that you are here and I hope you’re looking forward to our session together. This video is to give you guidelines and prep you for your session.

This may be your first time doing a Live Group Online Fitness Session. This is going to be fun. We have people to laugh and chat with 🙂 Our goal is to get you moving and when we are able to increase our heart rate (aerobic level), we activate the brain, we get our prefrontal cortex, hippocampus, and neurotransmitters very happy, and we reap the beautiful benefits of exercise. I want you to feel these benefits, OK? Let’s have some fun along the way.

Let’s talk about basic logistics.

  • Go ahead and add @BeFabBeYou.com to your Sender Safe List to assure you receive my messages and goodies after pre and post session.
  • What should you wear?

I want you to feel good in your clothes. No naked bodies, all right? 🙂 Tight or loose, all clothes are welcome – it is your body. Remember that this is a safe environment and we’re here to move and feel good about ourselves. So wear whatever rocks your boat.

Some people buy new workout clothes to celebrate new beginnings, their new journey, tell themselves they will rock and roll on and feel awesome.  Hey, if you want to put makeup, do it. I don’t care. I want you to feel comfortable, happy and prepared for this session.

  • What type of shoes should you wear?

Tennis shoes are the best. But if you’re on a carpet, barefoot should be fine as well. Be careful on other surfaces. Use common sense and make sure that it is not slippery because we will be moving and jumping some-for those whose body parts allow to do so.

  • Where are we meeting?

We’re going to meet in Zoom (video conference). The confirmation message you received via email with the URL for your session. If you DO NOT have Zoom installed in your device, take a minute PRIOR to our session to download it at http://www.zoom.us or download the application for free from your phone and you will be ready to go.

**In the video, I said the meeting ID is 770-835-5490. That is no longer valid. Each meeting has a unique meeting ID. Do yourself a favor, upon receiving an email confirmation for your session, click ADD TO CALENDAR (Google, Outlook, etc) so that you will have the URL (under location) accessible. 

  • What about the platform and technology needed to do this?

You’re going to need internet access. Most devices will have a microphone, so we will use this to communicate. You will also need a camera. That will enable us to see each other. If your laptop doesn’t have a camera or microphone, you will still be able to watch and hear me. You can type in the chat as needed.

  • Where to place the device?

We will take a minute to find a spot, but go ahead and look for a place I can see your body, especially hips down to the floors. The place itself does not have to be big. At this session, we’re not going to be running around. However, we will stretch our whole body on the floor, move our legs forward and back. Place your device somewhere you can direct the camera to yourself on the floor and standing. Whenever you have your first session, we will take a couple of minutes to adjust location.

It is also important you go to the link in the confirmation email you received. It takes you to videos of the key movements we’re going to do during the session.

  • How does the session will look like?

I am not providing videos for warm-up and stretch movements. I want you to know how to key other movements in advance. So please take a few minutes to look at them.

The confirmation email has the link to my YouTube playlist with videos you can watch and practice in advance. If you have any questions, let me know.

The other reason for doing this step is because if you have any body part imbalances, aches and pains, you can adjust prior to our session. This group session provides room for some personalization. Definitely, we do not want to damage any body parts, we want to strengthen them.

  • What else should you expect?
    • First, have fun, move your body, and feel good.
    • Second, we’re going to spend the first few minutes getting the cameras set up to assure I can see you and you can see me. That will allow me to critique your form, your technique while we move.
    • Third, Short introductions so we feel comfortable with each other. I will have reviewed your Par-Q and Terms and Conditions form in advance.
    • Forth, I’m going to do a short demo of the movements live just as a reminder since you will have looked at the forms previously.
    • Last, we’re going to do a warm-up, perform the workout routine I will have shared with you live, stretch, and short Q&A.

So that’s really the plan. I hope this is clear. If you have questions, please email [email protected]  or call 770-835-5490.

I look forward to seeing you soon online. Come ready to have some fun!!
