How to Create a Class

Everyone’s workout routine looks a little different. Some people want exercise based workouts, where you can go at your own pace, while others prefer long-form classes like spin, yoga, and Pilates. On Playbook, you can provide both, giving your fans the best of both worlds. Since classes (long-form videos) and workouts (short-form videos) are different styles, creating them within the Playbook Creator app looks slightly different.

FAQ

Why Can't I Add an Uploaded Video to a Class Exercise?

The video is still in the “Processing” state. Once all low/medium/high-quality streams are available, the video will be visible when adding a video to a Class exercise.

What Should I Do If the “You Don’t Have Any Long-Form Videos” Message Shows Up While I’m Creating a Class?

This means you haven’t uploaded any videos to your Video Library yet. Go to your profile, click on “Video Library,” and upload videos. Then, you’ll be able to start creating Classes.

What’s the Difference Between a Class and a Workout?

Workouts include multiple short videos for exercises and circuits (think of sets, reps, and CrossFit-type exercises). In contrast, each Class contains one long video for your subscribers to follow along (think of tutorials, yoga classes, and other long-form content).
