Deliver live or pre-recorded Video Workouts with RYPT / Feature focus


[2-minute read]

This week we rolled out a big upgrade to the workout builder – video workouts. Here’s some information about what you can do with the new feature and how it can benefit you, and your clients, and athletes…

What are Video Workouts?

It sounds fairly straightforward – and it is. The video workouts feature allows you to include videos in your workouts for your clients and athletes to follow. These are different to exercise technique videos though and can be included alongside, or instead of exercises in your workouts.

Use Cases

  • Dynamic Warm-ups
  • Recovery, Stretching, or Mobility Workouts
  • Speed, Agility, and Quickness Drills
  • HIIT Workouts or a HIIT section of a workout
  • A Workout Finisher
  • Live classes

How do Video Workouts work? 

For you as a coach

Now you can decide whether to include exercises, video, or a combination of the two in your workouts.

If you want to prescribe and monitor specific metrics in relation to certain exercises then you should include these exercises in your workout. If not, and you just want to track compliance, then a very engaging way to deliver the workout could be as a video for your clients and athletes to follow.

Pre-recorded videos

When you’re creating your workouts you can now add video as well as exercises to an exercise grouping. The video is uploaded and stored in your Content library using a YouTube or Vimeo link.

Live streaming with RYPT

RYPT also supports YouTube Live Streaming and Vimeo Livestream so you can share live links with your clients to access directly through the RYPT app.

Adding videos to your workouts

For your clients / athletes

Your clients and athletes will receive their workouts in the same way but if you have included a workout video, it will appear directly in the workout summary screen where they can play it.

If you have also included exercises and prescribed specific metrics they will appear alongside the video in the summary and your clients and athletes will record their workout data in the complete workout screen as they did before. If not, they’ll just be asked to let you know that they completed the workout.
