Finding the right fitness microphone for yourself can be overwhelming. Luckily, Fitness Audio is here to help!
Why you need a microphoneFitness mics can be an absolute lifesaver for Group Class Instructors. They help ensure all your students can hear you clearly, and get all important instructions relevant to your class. Using a fitness mic will also prevent you from straining your voice. As you won’t need to scream over the music at your class, using a fitness mic will save your voice and prevent the occurrence of vocal injuries.
Considerations when buying a microphoneThere are a few things to consider when buying a fitness mic. First, consider what class you'll be using your mic for. If you’re a Spin Instructor, it is paramount that you get a sweat-resistant mic that won’t get in your way. If you’re a Yoga Instructor, you can get away with a lighter mic. Either way, we recommend you get a wireless microphone as your movement will not be restricted, and you won’t have to worry about which wire goes where.
Secondly, think about how often you will need your mic. If you’re only doing a few classes a week, you can get away with a less-durable mic with lower battery life. If you’re planning on using your mic much more, it is worthwhile investing in a mic that is built to last with a battery that won’t die on you.
What to look for in a fitness micRegardless of what class you teach and how often you do teach, there are many things you should look for in a potential fitness mic.
As mentioned above, wireless mics are much more ideal for Fitness Instructors. With wireless mics, however comes batteries, so you should also aim to find a mic that has a solid battery life and can be recharged!
Another important thing to look for is sweat resistance. As fitness mics are exposed to a lot of sweat, it is important to get one that can handle a fair bit of moisture and is highly durable. Look for mics that come with warranties and are specially designed to beat sweat.
Finally, ensure that the mic you purchase is good quality. It simply is not worth buying a cheap mic as it will not be able to handle your fitness class! In addition, high-quality mics provide high-quality audio, which can be a make-or-break for your class attendees.
