Instructions – Online Group Turbo Sessions

To join us you will need (alongside a turbo/rollers/exercise bike/spin bike/watt bike):

  • The Zoom app
  • Headphones or a speaker (with a microphone if you also want to join the chat)

If you are also joining us on Zwift (optional) you will need:

  • Zwift App

Instructions to set up both are below. Although there are a few steps it is simple to set up. Any questions or problems please get in touch Teamheadset100@gmail.com.

Zoom

Please see below if you don’t already use Zoom

At the time of the session

1. About 10 minutes before the session starts either:

  • Click ‘Join’ on the zoom app and enter the meeting ID (767 928 4225)

Or

2. Everyone will see me on video where I will call out the instructions.

You can choose to join us with or without audio and with or without video.

  • Just listen to me and pedal (chose no audio, no video).
  • Join in with audio only so we can hear you and you can be part of the chat but we can’t see you (chose to join audio, no video).
  • Join in via video where we will be able to see you as well as hear you (chose to join audio & join video).

At any time you can change your mind by taping on the screen and clicking on either ‘mute’ (to stop audio) or ‘stop video’.
