The fitness industry has been hit hard with all gyms being forced to close their doors. Owners and trainers are understandably still looking for options to keep providing a service to their members and have switched to online streaming. The issue most instructors are facing is the music and voice is not being broadcasted in high enough quality. If members are being asked to pay for this service, then they should expect a quality broadcast.
The good news is, we have plenty of options to choose from, and we have put together the below list to help you choose the best option for your requirements. Our office is still open, and the team are ready to respond to emails and take your phone calls to assist in the transition to online classes – We’re here to help!
I need my voice to be clear, I don’t require music

Samson Digital Wireless Headset - Connects easily to all computers with a USB input out of the box. Can be used with smartphones (iPhone, Samsung etc.) via an adaptor.

I need my voice and music to be clear
For instructors teaching a higher intensity class that requires clear vocals and music mixed together, such as HIIT, Spin, Zumba etc. then the below packages include everything you need to connect directly to your computer via USB (note* If your computer does not have a USB port, adaptors can easily be purchased to allow connection). The other great thing about these systems is they can be used as a stand-alone system for teaching indoor or outdoor classes once the lockdown restrictions are removed.
