With the Openfit app, you can enjoy the energy of a live group class right in your own home.

In our Live workouts, a certified trainer will personally coach you in real time, offering personalized guidance and motivation along the way. You can access the Live classes from your phone, tablet, or computer.

One of the biggest advantages of the Live classes is that your trainer can provide real time feedback and form correction if you opt to turn on your devices camera. (Don’t worry, your trainer is the only one who can see you.)

There are two ways to view the more than 350 brand-new live classes each week on the home screen:

Openfit App Live Classes
Once you find a class you want to take, tap Book a Spot or Sign Up (depending on which screen you’ve navigated to).

Live classes start at specific times, just as they would at a gym. They’re also limited in size, so we recommend signing up in advance to avoid missing the cutoff, and canceling as soon as possible if you can’t make it.

Once your class is getting ready to start, you’ll see a countdown to launch. Time to get set!

If This Is Your First Live Class, Set Your Permissions

Live Virtual Trainer Benefits

When you take your first live class, the app will first ask for a few permissions to improve your experience. Here are a couple of key variables to consider:

Camera
If you want personalized feedback from your trainer, you’ll want to allow Openfit authorized access to your camera, setting your phone, tablet, or computer 5 to 10 feet away from you on the floor or a shelf.
Note: Only your trainer will see you during your workout — no one else. You can also easily turn the camera on and off at any time.

Location
Our walking and running classes use GPS to measure pace and distance. So when it comes to location services, you’ll want to set the app to “Always.” Using this information, our trainer will know what type of instruction to give to help you reach your personal goals wherever you happen to be.
Note: Choosing the “Only While Using the App” location option may cause your phone to lock up during a workout.
