So you want to have a great fun class whilst raising money for a great cause? That is great news! Because just by working out, STARDIO will donate £12 + 3 Gift Aid to The Trussell Trust Foundation on your behalf.

There is no donation required from you and the class is free.  All we want you to bring is your enthusiasm and energy!

Please note, STARDIO is not currently optimised for use on a tablet computer or mobile device.  Please register using a desktop computer.

Here is how you can book a spot on one of the special classes.

Don't forget, if you film your workout, and send it to us, we might use part of it for a follow up video. Whether we use your video or not, you will be paid £20 for your time. 

You will first need to decide which class is right for you.  All classes are approx 30-40 minutes long and each one is very different.

You can read about the classes below.  Once you have decided which class you would like to join, click on BOOK NOW (But please read the remaining instructions in this blog post before doing so).

Don’t forget your best pose for the group picture at the end!

Please note, as there is a limit of 25 people for my class.  If you book and are not able to attend for any reason, please email your instructor or you can cancel your booking from within the STARDIO dashboard.

IMPORTANT NOTE

Some people have expressed concerns that, even though it is free, the platform still asks for you to put in your bank details.  We completely understand this.  When STARDIO launches, people will subscribe to their instructors through the platform.  This is the way the platform has been coded, so whilst we have reduced the price to zero, it still requires the bank details to progress to the next step.

We can assure you, STARDIO does not have access to bank details. We use Stripe to handle this and it's 100% secure.  We can also assure you that, even though the words on the website suggest you are ‘subscribing’, once the charity event is over, your account will be deleted.  It would be too expensive for us to change the system (literally thousands of pounds) for a one-off event, so we have to work with the system we have, in order to do this.

We are genuine people hoping to do something positive but we naturally understand any concerns. If you do have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact the founder Jonathan Tustain at jonathan@stard.io.

STARDIO GOOD SESSIONS - How to join

 

Subscribe to instructor

Hit ‘Subscribe’.  Don’t worry.  You will not be entered into an ongoing subscription.  When STARDIO launches, it will work on a subscription basis, but as soon as the class is over, your subscription and accounts will be closed.

Register a free STARDIO LIVE account.

First, select ‘PARTICIPANT’ and enter your email address, set a password. Then click each box to proceed. You will receive a verification code.  If you can’t find it in your inbox, please check your spam or promotions folder.

Enter your personal details, such as name and bio, although the bio and interests fields are entirely optional for the purpose of this event.

Next, you will be asked to submit your card details.  Again, this is not to sign you up for a subscription.  We have changed the pricing to free. You will never be charged. As soon as the class is over, your details will be deleted.  STARDIO uses Stripe to securely process your financial details and does not have access to them.

You may be asked to verify your card with your bank.  Once you have done that, you will be automatically booked on the class!

PLEASE NOTE

Some people have been asking if this is a free one-off event, why bank details are required. STARDIO will officially launch in early 2023, and will be a platform for fitness instructors to earn a monthly income from subscribers who wish to join their online classes.  That is the way the platform has been built.  In order for us to do this event, we have to operate in the way the platform has been set up.  It would be very costly and time-consuming to change for one event.  Even though we have reduced the price to zero, the system has been coded to ask for bank details (as normally people will have to pay). 

Once the event is over, your ‘subscription’ and accounts will be deleted.  Your card will NEVER be charged anything.  All finances are processed securely by Stripe and STARDIO does not have access to your details.

If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact Jonathan Tustain at jonathan@stard.io.

Join your instructor's Whatsapp group

Next, you will need to join the Instructor’s Whatsapp group, specially set up for this charity event.

Head to your Dashboard and click on your Instructor (scroll to ‘Instructors you follow’).

When you click on the Instructor’s profile, you will notice an icon that says ‘JOIN THE GROUP’.  Click on that so you can ask your instructor any questions up to the class and ‘meet’ your fellow team!

How to join the stream

So you have cleared some space, got a bottle of water ready, maybe a towel and are ready to give it your all!

Please ensure you have your laptop ready, with your webcam and microphone working correctly.  Be sure to use a laptop or desktop computer, rather than a tablet computer or mobile device.

You will be able to join the class 5 minutes before the scheduled start time.

When the time is right, log in to your STARDIO account with the same credentials as before.  On your Dashboard, you will see the class you have booked.

5 minutes before the start time of the class, refresh your browser and you will notice a new button called JOIN SESSION.  Click that to be taken to the Waiting Room.

Hit LET’s DO THIS!  and you will join the others in the Waiting Room, ready for an awesome class!!

Pump up your speakers LOUD!  The music is amazing and will give you that extra energy!!

Once the class is over, your Instructor will ask you all to pose, so we can post a grid image of everyone, along with how much money was raised in aid of the Trussell Trust, to be posted on social media.  Please have your pose ready!  However, if you DO NOT wish to be in the picture, you can turn your camera off via the camera icon.

If you have any questions, leading up to the workout, or are having any issues logging into the love class, please send your question on your Whatsapp group, where a member of the STARDIO team will reply straight away!



WIN A MYZONE SWITCH!!!

We have one MZ-Switch to give away per GOOD SESSIONS class.

We would love to get some video of a few of you working out, in case we can use some clips for future promotions with STARDIO.

If you film a part or even the whole of your workout, and submit your video to STARDIO, you might be randomly selected to win a MyZone Switch.  We have ten to give away.  Once you have filmed your footage, you can email contact@stard.io for instructions as to how to send the file.



Questions you might have


Q) I am new to exercise.  Will I be okay participating?
 

Don’t worry!  During each class, the Instructor will offer lower impact options and you will always be invited to take a break and return to the workout if needed.  If you are completely new to exercise, we would probably not advise the POWER! Class, by Kat Hutchinson,


Q)  If this is a one-off and free, why do you need my bank details?
 

STARDIO will officially launch in early 2023, and will be a platform for fitness instructors to earn a monthly income from subscribers who wish to join their online classes.  That is the way the platform has been built.  In order for us to do this event, we have to operate in the way the platform has been set up.  It would be very costly and time-consuming to change for one event.  Even though we have reduced the price to zero, the system has been coded to ask for bank details (as normally people will have to pay). 

Once the event is over, your ‘subscription’ and accounts will be deleted.  Your card will NEVER be charged anything.  All finances are processed securely by Stripe and STARDIO does not have access to your details.

Q)  What will you do with my data?  Am I signing up to a database?


Absolutely not.  Again, the system will normally require people to register an account and this is the only way we can deliver these charity classes.  Once the class is over, your account will be deleted.  


Q) Are your instructors insured and qualified?


Absolutely!  Our GOOD SESSIONS instructors are hugely experienced and fully qualified - we partnered with them because they are exceptionally good :-)


Q) Am I expected to donate any money to Trussell Trust or pay anything?


Not at all. STARDIO will donate on your behalf.  We are doing this to encourage people to get fit and to also contribute to a great cause.  Of course, you are more than welcome to donate separately via this link.
