Zoom: love it and hate it. A year into the pandemic, and we’re all experts in how to get to Zoom gatherings for both work and play, and Zoom has been a lifeline to normalcy. And one year later, many of us have also experienced the realness of Zoom fatigue.
here at bande we believe that Zoom is a decent way to take a fitness class, but not our ultimate aspiration for a true a community-building platform. Zoom is designed for workplace meetings, and fitness classes are different.
Over the past 8 months, the product development team has been working to build our own live stream service -- bande Live -- an experience that amps up the sense of connection and fun that home-based studio fitness can provide.
So, next time you join class, you might notice the join class link takes you to a new destination. The product team has been slowly rolling out bande Live in a limited release to test stability and gather feedback on how we’re doing.
If you're lucky to land in a bande Live hosted class, below is a sneak peek of what to expect. Even better, please join us in one of several free bande Technology Open House events to experience bande Live yourself, and get more tips on how to better optimize your in-home studio experience.
