As use of wireless and wearable gears grows, there’s a greater need to make sure everyone knows how to maximize the use of their devices. If you’ve got a fitness instructor microphone, here are a few tips you’ll want to know:
Change into a new battery
Do this before every new session or job, says the Broadcast Bridge. That way, you won’t have to worry about your mic dying out on you in the middle of a session. While you can certainly switch to a new battery, it’s going to be inconvenient and result in a bit of delay, which can feel like you’re wasting your students’ time. By changing the batteries beforehand, you can avoid these problems.
Set the mic on a separate frequency
That’s a must if there are several instructors teaching the class with wireless mics. Each one must be on a separate frequency. Otherwise, you’ll end up with major problems throughout your gym sessions.
Do a sound check
Always check your equipment before you start your classes. If there are problems and issues, you’ll have plenty of time to fix them or find alternative options to ensure your class will go off without a hitch.
Check your audio system
Check the system all throughout the session. You might need to adjust your frequencies in the middle of your class. Be prepared to do so in case it becomes necessary.
If you’re using a body-pack transmitter, keep in mind that you should never cross the microphone line with the antenna. Otherwise, that could result in problems during the session.
Keep the antenna as straight as possible
Remind yourself to regularly check on that detail. By using your fitness instructor microphone properly, you can count on it to perform better and last and your gym classes a whole lot longer.
