Setting Up for Virtual Session

How to Set Up for an Online Session:

  • Mat: Set up your mat square in the room, not to the camera

  • Camera Set Up: Set up slightly above the mat/apparatus. Far enough away to see 1the entire mat (and you). Not so far that cannot see detail. Long Diagonal or almost directly on the side - Teresa wants a glimpse of the far/opposite side

  • Devices: Computer is best: wide angle lens, easier to manipulate camera position Phone/Tablet prepare with tools for posi8intioning. You can use: Tripod, Light Weights, Resistance Band, Sticky Pads/Non-slip Surface - Do not block camera.

  • Lighting: Light from the front and/or overhead, not the back. If window is behind client, the close window shades/blinds or put camera on opposite side

  • Volume: Turn Volume Up. If feedback or echo…lower volume one notch down

  • Screensaver: Adjust to 1 hour or Never

  • Pronoun(s): Please add your pronoun to your name if you are able. You can do that my going to the upper right hand corner of your Zoom screen and clicking the three dots (…) then click Rename and add your pronoun(s)

  • Feedback Consent Option: If you would like to receive verbal feedback, please add a ‘Yes’, ‘Y’ or ‘Yaaas’ in front of your name. You can do that my going to the upper right hand corner of your Zoom screen and clicking the three dots (…) then click Rename and add your ‘Yes’, ‘Y’ or ‘Yaaas’. This lets me know that you want verbal feedback.

That's it! You are ready to rock!

What can I achieve from taking class with Teresa and why should I participate?

In addition to your body becoming stronger, you will gain more confidence making an improvement in your physical well-being.

  1. More Personal Attention – Teresa will see, correct, and connect with you. When you don't think she's looking, she is. 

  2. More Economical – Private Sessions provide the most personal attention and greatest opportunity to succeed. Some people, however, may find that group classes fits into their budget better and still gives them the attention they need.

  3. Variety – By working with Teresa, your workouts will change/evolve as you progress/get stronger, preventing hitting a plateau and boredom.

  4. Community – Let’s face it, workouts love company and the Strong Squad is not afraid to let me know how they feel in the most loving way. If in agreement of "What did we get ourselves into?" or a laugh of how silly Teresa's love of puns is enhances the experience for everyone! Expletives a.k.a. cursing loudly are not discouraged! The Strong Squad Rocks!

  5. Motivation – Knowing that you are sharing space, even virtually you can encourage you more than you might do on your own.

  6. Support – Both Teresa and the Strong Squad are there to help you get through the challenges of the workout and the obstacles in life. We got your back!!!!

  7. Greater focus – There’s no time to let your mind wander with Teresa keeping tight programming and watching your every move. Nothing gets past her!

  8. Fun – It's what Teresa is known for! The one thing that is consistent in her sessions is laughter. We get an ab workout just by laughing sometimes!

  9. Adherence – Research shows that members that are involved in programs are more likely stick with them. With all of the previously listed benefits, how could you not want to keep coming back?
