How To Get Started With Group Training?
1. Create a program
Create a specific program that you want all your group members to follow at the same time. Follow the steps in this article to learn how to create a program: What is a Program? How do I build one?
2. Create a group
Create a Group for your Group Training program. Follow the steps in this article to learn how to create a group: How to Build Engaging Groups.
3. Assign Master Program to a Group
After your program and group are created, it's time to assign the program to the group. You can do this from the "Training and Accountability" section within your group.
By flipping on the "Master Program" switch, you will be prompted to attach your program and to select a start date for the program.
PLEASE NOTE: The "Master Program" option syncs up all the start dates for all the members of the group. If a client joins the group after the program has begun they will be starting the program from that moment onwards. (if they join in week 2, they will not be able to see or complete exercises from week 1).
To maintain consistency with the program feature, all master programs begin on a Monday.
4. Attach Your Master Program to the Group.
Et voilá! Now everyone in your group will be following the same program at the same time. As a best practice, keep "Auto-Post" enabled. This way your group members' activity will be shared with the other participants in the group. This is an excellent way to stimulate engagement and to keep motivation sky high.
#TZTIP: Use group motivation strategically! Any message you post in the group can now motivate more people at the same time. Make sure you use mentions to tag people (use @clientname or @everyone) and get their attention. They will get a mobile push notification every time you or other group member mentions them.
