On-line Circuits 7pm Thurs 26th Mar
We have some good news to share at last! We will be delivering our first on-line circuits class on Thursday 26th March at 7pm. The session is suitable for all and will be led by Mary Fleming, who is a qualfied personal trainer. Please email Mary before the session if you have an injury and she will be able to give you suitable variations for the exercises in advance of the session.
We will be using Zoom to deliver the session. The conference will be available to join from 6.30pm so please connect before 7pm, check it's all working, feel free to have a chat, and then leave it connected and come back at 7pm ready to start. Details of how to use Zoom are shown below. Please bear with us if there are technical issues as this is new to us as well as you! Hopefully we will be able to make these a weekly occurrence!
To get into Zoom you just need a pc or laptop with webcam and microphone, and then click the link.
If you've used Zoom before (and have it installed) then it will just open Zoom. If you haven't used Zoom before it will open in a browser, and then ask you to open/install an app. Just say yes and it should open a pop-up asking you to enter your name, and then you'll be in the conference.
Once in you should then see and hear everyone else, and you should be able to turn your video on or off, and turn your microphone on or off.
Towards the top right of the screen you should be able to choose "Gallery View" or "Presenter View". Pick whichever one you prefer.
With a lot of people on the conference, it will be best for everyone to be on mute, except when you want to ask or say something. You can set yourself on mute, and then use the spacebar (press and hold) to briefly un-mute your microphone.
If you are using a laptop you'll want to ensure that the screensaver or power saving options don't turn off the screen partway through the session. I suggest turning off the screen saver and setting the power options not to turn off the screen or the laptop while it is plugged into power.
