Zoom Classes

Zoom online fitness classes have become mainstream since COVID-19 has shut down Sport & Leisure. In-person classes no longer being possible, fitness clubs and sport organizations started using Zoom to give interactive classes online. A Zoom Online Class aims to reproduce the in-person experience of a coach interacting with participants.

Activity Messenger integrates Zoom and Amilia to help you set up and run Zoom Online Classes. Activity Messenger provides solutions to these painpoints:

  • Eliminates the manual process of creating Zoom meetings for dozens of classes a week.
  • Automates sending the Zoom meetings to participants by SMS or email.
  • Automates sending reminders before the class to avoid no-shows and refunds.
  • Simplies management of Zoom recordings. Lets you edit and send videos by SMS or email to participants after the class.
