Get fit with me on PowHow: Live WebCam Classes
March 20th, 2012
You might have seen my posts and pictures on Facebook and Twitter about these Live WebCam classes recently. Some of you have tried it and for the rest of us who might have no clue and be intrigued: You’ll find all you need to know about this GREAT website right here.
1) What is Powhow:
Powhow is a company that host live on-line webcam classes. From cooking, art to Pilates. You can signup and do it from the comfort of your own living room.
2) How does it work:
It works similar like Skype: you can see me and I can see you, but depending on the class you will be one of about 2 to 30 people from all over that is taking the live class. So you can see the Instructor and she/he can see you. You can also set the screen to see a friend of yours that might be in class with you and you guys can communicate. The Pilates classes work just like they do at a gym or studio, I can see how you’re progressing and correct your form and show you how to do an exercise. Instead of watching YouTube and wondering if you’re doing an exercise correctly, Powhow allows for me to be there every step of your way to help you! This is the perfect way to take class with me, even if you are not in Boston or if you are traveling for work, or going on vacation!
3) How is it going to help you get fit:
Well, you now no longer can use the excuse that you’re too lazy to go to a class or to the gym. No more looking for parking and feeling shy! Powhow brings Pilates with Hanneke LIVE to your living room! Right now there are 3 classes to choose from: Monday 12:00 – 12:50p, Wednesdays 9:00 – 9:45pm and Thursdays 5:30 – 6:15pm. And this is just a start. You will be able to enjoy a class at home and get a full body workout and even request what you would like to focus on. Sign up for then right HERE. You can also contact me for private instruction.
4) What do you need:
You will need a computer with a camera ( the same that you can use to Skype), internet connection, a microphone You will also have to make sure that your computer runs on Flash Player 11.0 or above. The latest version of Flash can be found here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/. Also check out PowHow’s FAQ. They will also support tablets and phones very soon! So stay tuned!
