Streaming workouts on Zoom has become a successful business for many fitness professionals over the last two years. But where do you start or how do you improve your streaming set-up? In this tutorial we go over the “ultimate” streaming package for teaching online workouts on Zoom.
Zoom is a unique platform that is constantly evolving. Since the first version of this tutorial, not only have more settings been added but more has been learned about using Zoom for online workouts. In Fall 2020, when the first version was published, using an iPad Pro and an interface wasn’t possible due to the Zoom app. Upgrading to a Mac Mini unlocks all the features of the audio interface and requires less adapters to make it run.
The powerhouse of this tutorial is the Mac Mini M1. Not only is this desktop a solid overall computer, but has the most recent wifi chip, 8GBs (or 16GBs if upgraded), and 8 cores. Those details might be a little overwhelming for fitness professionals but essentially it’s fast!
The second featured item discussed in this tutorial is the Logitech StreamCam. For the cost, this webcam packs a punch with its quality and focus capabilities. If investing in the StreamCam, make sure you take the time to adjust your Zoom video levels and test different light configurations. Also, please note that your video quality while streaming can be impacted by your internet speed.
