Lavalier Microphone

Lavalier Microphone

Also known as a lapel mic this is perhaps your best investment for fitness streaming and recording. Just make sure to get the wireless one :)

Smartphone  Built-in Mic

Smartphone Built-in Mic

You can use your smartphone or tablet built-in microphone like many You-Tubers do but you will get that hollow sound which will lead to poor customer feedback

Smartphone and Tablet Mics

Smartphone and Tablet Mics

There are a variety of smartphone and tablet microphones that plug directly into the device. Some are better than others

Wireless Fitness Mic

Wireless Fitness Mic

If a lapel mic is not your style or budget then the old faithful over-the-head fitness microphone will do just fine

lighting

Lighting is critical for setting a mood or creating emotions.  You can also have alot of fun with lighting.  There are a few key lighting concepts to be aware of to ensure that your recording isn't ruined.  Don't be overly concerned with perfect lighting, we are not shooting a hollywood movie here.  Most of your members will watch a workout once or twice and then move on to the next one.  We want good quality and high volumes of new content to keep them coming back for more.  Check out internet searches on Basic  3 or 4 Point Lighting as well as Video Lighting Basics.
