Avon Lake gym teacher uses own videos for virtual classes

AVON LAKE, Ohio – Before COVID-19 hit, social media featured little content for gym teachers to use in classes. Now, according to Avon Lake gym teacher Jason Hayne, physical education teachers are sharing “effective content and think-outside-the-box ideas for meaningful experiences.”

Hayne said it was certainly a challenge when teachers in the Avon Lake City Schools were told they would be teaching remotely. “At that point I san down and started to think, what can I do to give the students the best possible experience that I possibly could outside of the gym.”

Hayne’s brainstorming paid off. “I wanted to re-create an environment that is unique and exciting but just in a different way through videos and background visuals that take them to different places.”

Not a video expert, Hayne said he taught himself how to do “green-screen” and editing. “Educators are used to teaching themselves new things to share,

Tidelands’ virtual fitness classes offer members at-home workout option | Myrtle Beach Area News

PAWLEYS ISLAND — When Tidelands Health surveyed its fitness members, they learned quickly several of their members didn’t want to come back due to COVID-19 concerns.

“We wanted to be able to reach them,” said Kim Vanlandingham, manager of Tidelands HealthPoint Center for Health and Fitness.

HealthPoint has in-person classes in Pawleys Island, which is where Tidelands does its streaming.

“There’s a lot of risk emotionally and physically associated with just being sedentary. So we wanted to make sure everybody was staying with their exercise program,” Vanlandingham continued.

That’s when Tidelands Health expedited pre-COVID plans to stream fitness classes online.

In September, it launched virtual membership for classes such as Zumba, pilates and yoga through a live-streamed format. For $15 per month, members can get their fitness classes in, from the comfort of their own home.

“In general, our facility has a strong social connection with our members,” Vanlandingham said.
