Zoom online booking service for fitness instructors

Online classes provide vital service for yoga teachers, Pilates, dance personal fitness trainers and range of professional looking to keep going during the Kovid-19 crisis.

NearYou has developed a the new online class service that integrates with Zoom helping fitness professional earn a living during the Kovid-19 crisis.

Its flexible, taking care of marketing, bookings and communication with customers.

The service was launched within a week of the UK Government announcing the lockdown measures. This measure effectively stopped gyms and studios from running fitness classes overnight.

With a collapse in bookings many studios and gyms were faced with a total loss of revenue. NearYou websites and mobile Apps were re-engineered to offer a Zoom service that maintained all the cool features of the platform, making it easy for instructors and studios to simply add their Zoom classes or set up zoom schedules.

Fitness instructors in particular Pilates and Yoga teachers, on the platform upgraded to take advantage of the Zoom service, giving NearYou a solid base of the best online teachers to offering online zoom classes to the public.

The response was both immediate and extraordinary. Thousands of “How to” manuals have been downloaded on NearYou already. Instructors and studios have embraced the opportunity to get paid for online Lessons.

"Near You websites has been like a spinal chord for me helping me not only with the online booking system but also enabling me to link my bookings to Zoom so that I could carry on teaching yoga online

For many people right now learning new computer skills and booking in new ways is a whole new world.


My students are loving the Near You booking system, which they find easy to access and which supplies alerts to them for each class, whilst I am hugely appreciative of the reporting mechanisms which have cut down my admin enormously.

NearYou has been an ever present, easily accessible oracle who has sorted every query and eased the path for me to be free to teach yoga without worrying about technology.”

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you, and all the team at NearYou for getting the online class application with Zoom up and running so quickly!

Today I taught my first online Mat Class through NearYou and am setting up an online schedule that includes all of our teachers. 

The feedback from clients about the booking and payment process was hugely positive! It is super-easy book and pay and access the classes via Zoom. NY have made it so simple!

Honestly, we are already creating a new revenue stream seamlessly and effortlessly by hosting a virtual studio for our clients using the NearYou platform. 

Without the NY platform what could be perceived as the death of our Studio in the current crisis has been transformed into a huge business opportunity which we will continue to use after we open our doors again.”
