Many instructors have been searching for the best way to share classes with remote participants, but can’t figure out how to effectively share workout leadership while legally using their favorite, motivational music.
<<New for Spring 2021>> Any participant at any location can use an Apple Watch to transmit their heart rate to a HomeWork leader. Just open the MFDJ app on an Apple Watch, tap ❤️ on the screen, then select the current playing track of the HomeWork class.
<<New for Spring 2021>> HomeWork display can be viewed on any browser on any platform from any location! While playing a HomeWork playlist, tap ? on the lower left corner > “Share ? Scoreboard URL” to anyone, anywhere.
<<New for Spring 2021>> Start HomeWork on any MFDJ playlist by subscribing to Studio Edition in-app (try free for 1 week!) then swipe left on playlist name > more > Turn ? On. Each time you play any track from that playlist, MFDJ HomeWork will start.
With iOS14, use Group FaceTime for your video connection and MyFitnessDJ HomeWork for your music & cues for a single device solution to teach remote classes!
Original MyFitnessDJ HomeWork (Spring 2020)
Now teach a class as an MFDJ ? Leader and have Followers anywhere in the world who can hear your music and see your cues in real-time. Followers with BLE Power/RPM and/or Heart Rate data can be a part of the HomeWork Scoreboard for an even more motivating remote class experience.
Leader builds an MFDJ playlist as usual using tracks from Apple Music, then -> swipe playlist name – More -> Turn ? On (requires Studio Edition in app subscription).
Leader starts a video conference (Zoom, Group FaceTime, Google Meetup, Skype, etc) on one device, then starts the HomeWork stream on another iOS device by playing the first track. The MFDJ current playing screen shows Followers’ data as they enter the stream.
No need to start all sessions at exactly the same moment, as all streams are automatically synced!
While music, cues and timers are transmitted from the Leader’s iOS device, a Follower’s BLE Power/RPM and/or Heart Rate data (requires Power Pack subscription) is returned so real-time Scoreboard performance data can be viewed by Leader & Followers for a great Scoreboard challenge.
Not only does MFDJ HomeWork help the Leader provide targeted coaching, it also provides added safety as the Leader can watch the Follower’s heart rate. Followers can also enter an “in trouble” phone number and instructions that are accessible to the Leader in case they need help.
