What do I get with the membership?

  • Live classes (10 to 12 live classes every month)
  • Replays of live classes (posted to the website within a few hours of the live class)
  • Full access to the entire video library of recorded workouts
  • Member-only emails

How do I attend live classes?

As a member, you’ll need to register through Zoom for every live class you want to take. Go to the LIVE CLASS CALENDAR and follow the simple instructions below the calendar. On the calendar, a live class replay is available on days when there is not a live class.

How do I watch replays of live classes?

The replays of live classes are one of my most popular features! Many of my members love the replays because it gives them ultimate flexibility. You have two options for accessing the replays:

  1. Go to the LIVE CLASS/REPLAY CALENDAR and select the replay for the day when there is not a live class
  2. Go to the REPLAY LIBRARY and select any replay you want.

Remember you can “favorite” any replay which makes it easy to repeat your favorites! See instructions below for how to favorite a workout.

What style of classes and workouts do you offer?

I offer five styles of workouts

BASIC

BASIC is my most popular style. We focus on what you need to stay strong and flexible for your today and your years ahead. We will work on strength, balance, flexibility, and breath expansion. While BASIC is considered to be at the beginner level, anyone can benefit because of the emphasis on functional, safe movements that is helpful to everyone.

FIT

Raise your heart rate and expand your breath capacity with safe cardio movements, balance, and strength exercises. All FIT class are designed for moderate exertion. This is not about crazy cardio exercise. It’s about raising the heart rate and expanding lung capacity for several minutes without wearing ourselves out. Resistance band exercises usually are included for added benefit.

FLOW

The FlOW workout is similar to a yoga class. We begin with deep breathing and centering. Then we move to active flowing movements combined with breathing. Cues will be offered that keep you moving safely and efficiently. This class culminates with deliciously deep stretches. This class is at the intermediate level because of the active movements. However, anyone can do FLOW with proper modifications. Slow down and do only what feels good to your body.

STRETCH

This wonderfully relaxing experience includes range of motion exercises for joint health, deep stretches to improve mobility, and  breathing exercises to relax tight muscles and reduce mental stress.

CHAIR

Designed for anyone looking for a workout with the assistance of a chair. Some of the workouts are seated, while others include standing exercises with the chair for support.

How do I save a workout to view later?

It’s easy to save a video as a favorite. Look for the box below the video with the heart. Click on the heart to make it red. Your video is saved to your favorites, which will show up on the top of your Video Library.

Will the workouts be too easy or too hard for me?

One of the biggest benefits of being a StayAhead member is that you do your workouts in the privacy of your home rather than at a gym. Having privacy makes it easy to modify your workout. You can always make an exercise easier or harder. I will give you plenty of cues to help. You always can rest or stop your workout early if needed.

Some StayAhead members are very active, athletic people who need more challenging functional workouts. Other members are less active and need gentler workouts. It’s all here!

What are the Specialty Programs all about?

Specialty Programs give you an added focus when you need it. By doing 15 to 25 minute workouts that work only on one topic, you improve rapidly.

 

The specialty programs currently available are:

HipPower

BeStrong

DeepBreath

Do you send out member emails every week?

Yes! I send out an email every Sunday morning with fitness tips, recommended workouts, and other member updates. See below if you’re not receiving my Sunday morning email.

By the way, I love hearing from my members. Send me an email any time to [email protected]. Let me know how you’re doing with your workouts, ask a question, send me a picture of you doing activities you love or while doing a StayAhead workout.

Why am I not receiving your emails?

Emails sometimes go to a junk folder or if you use gmail, my emails may be going to your “promotions” or “social” tabs. Look around your email program to see if you can find my emails which are from [email protected].

Be sure to “whitelist” or “safelist” my email address to ensure you’ll never miss my messages.

Let me know if you still can’t find it. I’ll be glad to help.
