How does pricing work for Video Workouts and Video Call Sessions

Available as an add-on to your paid Trainerize plan, Video Workouts, and Video Call Sessions are the perfect way to give your training programs an extra dose of personality and engagement. 

In order to use Video Workouts and/or Video Calls, you will first need to purchase packs of “time”. This can be done from the billing section of your Trainerize web app. 

 

Pricing for Video Workouts

In order to use Video Workouts, you will need to purchase streaming time. 

 

Streaming time

Streaming time is the total amount of time your clients collectively spend watching your video workouts. 

As soon as a client presses play on a video workout, they start to use up streaming time. Closing and rewatching a video again counts as a new stream. 

When jumping to different timestamps in a video (scrubbing forward or backward) only the time spent actually playing the video counts toward streaming time (e.g., watching 5 minutes of a video, then jumping ahead 5 minutes and watching for another 10 minutes counts as 15 minutes of streaming time).

Streaming time is consumed by 1 minute intervals.

Streaming time must be purchased in packs of 100 hours. Each pack is $10. That works out to only $0.10 per hour of video streaming time.

 

How to buy streaming time

To purchase streaming time, follow these steps:

  1. On the web app, go to Settings > Billing.

What happens if I run out of streaming time?

If you run out of streaming time, your clients will not be able to watch any of your video workouts until you top up your account. 

When this happens, the account owner will be notified that their streaming time has run out.

 

How to set up up auto-reload

To avoid running out of time, you can turn on auto-reload option. 

With auto-reload turned on, a pre-determined amount of time will be automatically added to your account whenever you are down to your final 10 hours of streaming time.

Follow these steps to set up auto-reload.

  1. On the web app, go to Settings > Billing.

Pricing for Video Calls

In order to use Video Calls, you will first need to buy "call time”.

 

Call Time 

 

Call time is the amount of time you have available to conduct video calls in Trainerize. 

For example, if you wanted to host 5 video calls that are each 1-hour long, you would need to have at least 5 hours of call time purchased.

You can schedule video calls in 15-minute increments (15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 60 minutes) with a maximum duration of 1 hour (or 60 minutes). 

Each time a trainer and/or one of their clients join a video call, it uses up call time. 

Call time is counted in 1 minute increments and the account owner will be charged for the actual time at least one of the users was on the call. For example, if one of the users joins the call 5 minute before its scheduled time and stays on the call 5 minute later, the account owner will also be charged for the additional 10 minutes. 

Call time must be purchased in packs of 10 hours. Each pack is $10. That works out to only $1 per hour of video call time.

 

How to buy call time

To purchase video call time, follow these steps:

  1. On the web app, go to Settings > Billing.
