The 100th video, Aqua Body Blast, posted this month featuring the fierce and fabulous Stephanie Thielen.   To celebrate, we will be launching a new look and all new features over the next few months. 

What can you expect in Fitmotivation 3.0?

Currently, 102 videos are streaming in the Premium Pro Plan and 68 videos are streaming in the Basic Pro Plan.  That is a lot of videos.  Therefore we will be making changes to how the videos are categorized and displayed – both for visitors and for subscribers.

Subscribers will now have the ability to select and store their favorite videos in one area for more immediate access to a video they are interested in.

Okay…so we launched the comment feature on the videos in Fitmotivation 2.0 last year.  However, it was a rather rudimentary effort.  Currently there is no way for subscribers to respond to other subscribers’ comments and there is no way for the video presenter to be notified of comments, which often contain questions.  That will be fixed and improved. 

Currently there are 10 videos that include a CEC Quiz worth 2.0 AEA CECS.  Another video & quiz will post in September.  A new area of the website will be devoted to just these videos and quizzes. 

This will likely be the most expanded upon feature in the coming months.  Select videos (AquaFit series) are now being produced so that not only can instructors take away ideas and class routines; but aqua fitness enthusiasts can hit play and workout to the video.  Audio downloads are also available for these videos in order to provide more convenient usage with mp3 devices and Bluetooth compatibility.   New!  The audio downloads will soon be available for non-subscribers in the Fitmotivation store. 

CREATE-A-CLASS TEMPLATES is essentially a video resource library for instructors to learn and to improve their classes with new ideas and formats.  However, some instructors prefer the convenience of readymade class that can be taught in its entirety.   And for this reason more videos will be produced with template worksheets included with the notes, allowing instructors to learn and teach ONE class from start to finish.  In July, two videos were posted with Create-a-Class templates included with the notes.  Aqua Body Blast and S’WET™ Challenge are both exciting and challenging formats that can be taught as a full class with the notes – or replicated with your own moves with the template worksheet. 

Additional changes are slated for Fitmotivation 3.0, including a really big and really exciting new feature, but I have to keep my mouth shut on that for now. 

Extending heartfelt thanks to Fitmotivation subscribers for your support.  Producing over 100 videos simply would not have been possible without your subscription renewals.   Thank you for your loyalty.
