Live-Stream MANIA® Express is different from an in-person MANIA® because it is conducted online, in real time, via Zoom. There is also an All-Access option, which enables you to view the session recordings within 30 days of the conclusion of the convention. Our In-Person MANIA® Conferences are held “in-person” at one of our MANIA® Hotel locations throughout the United States.

You will receive a confirmation email/letter when you enroll for Live-Stream MANIA® Express. Please check your spam or junk email folders to ensure the email has not ended up in one of those folders.  Additionally, please keep this email in a safe place for future reference.

You should join your session five (5) minutes prior to the start time, and you do not need to sign up for sessions beforehand. Those who arrive early will see a notice about the session beginning soon. You will click on the link provided in the Live-Stream MANIA® Express schedule (accessible after registration) to join the session and Zoom will guide you directly to the session - either in the Zoom app or on a web browser on your Mac/PC. Please use your full name that you registered with when joining your Live-Stream MANIA® Express sessions.

You can participate with a friend, but you both must register and pay individually for Live-Stream MANIA® Express Conference. Participating with a friend is a great idea because you can support each other throughout the entire process.

There will be a 15-minute break between each session. There will also be a 30-minute break for lunch during the middle of the day. If you need to take any breaks during a session, please feel free to do so and let the presenter know by typing the information into the Zoom chat box.

Zoom is an easy, reliable platform for video and audio conferencing that works with all types of devices such as a desktop computer, laptop computer, tablet, phone, and similar devices with internet availability.

Then, click on the meeting link in your registration email in order to participate in Live-Stream MANIA® Express. However, for the highest quality experience, we recommend you use a laptop or desktop computer.

    The Presenter and other participants can see you during Live-Stream MANIA® Express sessions only if you turn your camera/video on. You do have the ability to turn on or turn off your computer’s camera in order to participate at the level you feel most comfortable with during the session. We always encourage full participation, but the option is up to you. We also encourage you to join the Live-Stream sessions with a device that has a camera since our Presenters like to be able to see and review body movements in certain sessions.

    You do not have to keep your camera on during Live-Stream MANIA® Express sessions. We only encourage you to use your camera if the Presenter requests it. However, it is your choice and should be based upon your comfort level.

    You can interact with the Presenter during a Live-Stream MANIA® Express session. You will see the Presenters in real time right on your screen. One of the benefits of Live-Stream MANIA® Express is the ability to interact with the Presenter throughout the session. During the session, you can also ask questions via the chat box, interact live with the Presenter and other participants, and receive live one-on-one feedback directly from the Presenter in some situations.

    During a session, you can ask questions of the Presenter at any time by typing your question into the chat box feature in Zoom. Then, the Presenter will answer your question for the entire group. Presenters may also designate specific times to ask and answer questions.

    If your WI-FI goes down or is unstable during Live-Stream MANIA® Express, please reset your modem or router and try to join the session again. If that does not solve your issue, you may need to contact your internet service provider to resolve the problem. To ensure you have enough bandwidth for the best streaming experience, please close any unused applications and avoid running other streaming video/music/game services during Live-Stream MANIA® Express. For your convenience, there is also a Live-Stream MANIA® Express All-Access pass that does not require Zoom and gives you the ability to watch the recorded sessions for a full 30 days. You can register for the ALL-ACCESS option by clicking on the following link: https://livestreammania.com/may/lsm521-all-access/. If you have enrolled for access to sessions on the weekend only, you can upgrade to the ALL-ACCESS option by clicking on the following link: https://livestreammania.com/may/upgrade/.

    The Presenter will not have a Live Class in front of them during Live-Stream MANIA® Express sessions. They will be hosting their Live-Stream MANIA® Express sessions from their home/gym studio. However, in the future, the Presenters will have a Live Class in front of them since we will Live Stream directly from our In-Person MANIA® Conferences.

    You will not need any equipment to participate. If you do not have the equipment that the Presenter is using for a session, you can always improvise to the best of your ability (i.e., if you do not have a bike - use a chair, if you do not have a gliding disc - use a paper plate, if you do not have dumbbells - use a soup can, etc.)  Additionally, SCW Fitness does have discounted equipment available for sale here: https://scwfit.com/store/product-category/scw-warehouse-sale/

    You should set-up your Live-Stream MANIA® Express space with enough room to move in your home or wherever you are viewing the Live-Stream MANIA® Express sessions. Some Presenters will ask you to demonstrate/participate during certain portions of the session. However, this is not required and purely based upon your comfort level.

    You should dress for Live-Stream MANIA® Express sessions, so that you can appropriately train (if applicable) and participate in the various exercises. For activity-based sessions, you can expect to practice certain exercises and you would be best suited to be dressed accordingly. For lecture-based sessions, dress comfortably, but keep in mind that you may be requested to turn on your camera at times.
