Step #4: Set Up Your Classes
Tired of tracking down payments? Paying more commission than you earn? No one works harder for your students than you do. So, you should see the fruits of your labor. With Moxie, you do. But first, you'll need to set up your payment information. Don't worry; it's pretty easy.
Set up your payment information (U.S. only).
Step #5: Get ready to teach
As you're getting ready to teach on Moxie, may we recommend some additional reading? Our handy guides help you make sure you've got all the details covered before your first class so that you can focus on teaching.
Step #6: Setup Subscriptions and Videos
Are you wondering how to get your students to come back week after week? Help them create a fitness routine that includes YOU by offering subscription plans!
When your students purchase your weekly or monthly subscription, they unlock unlimited access to your live group classes AND video-on-demand library (PREMIUM Members Only)—giving them more reasons to come back every week.
Step #7: Attend a Train the Trainer Session
Let's be honest; moving from teaching in a studio to teaching in front of a camera is full of new challenges. It can be hard enough to remember your left from your right—add to that learning how to run your own business, and it can quickly feel overwhelming.
We're making the transition a bit easier with help from our head of Instructor Programming, Leah. Learn best practices on becoming a rockstar instructor, building your business, and delivering the best virtual fitness experience possible in her weekly 'Level Up with Leah' session.

Step #8: Meet Our Instructor Community
When you join Moxie, you become part of a supportive, experienced community of instructors from around the world. We asked them for their top tips for building their brand. Here's what they said:
"Post video clips from recordings and after-workout pictures. People like to see other people doing the workout because they don't want to be the only ones or just one of a few in class. Also, the videos give people a good idea of what to expect!" -Jordan Yates @JordanYatesFitness
"My number one tool for online classes is word of mouth. Ensuring everyone in my class feels like they were noticed and connected with is important and helps as a natural marketing tool. If they feel welcome and connected, they are more likely to tell other people." -Heather Plumberg @Porsche_Louise
"I've noticed that my best time to post is usually late afternoon because I always teach morning classes so that when people are scrolling through at night or after work, they see it." -Jordan Owashi @Jowashi
Step #9: Promote Yourself
Your Moxie class is more than just a workout; it's about forming a community. Building a strong connection with your students will help you get repeats, referrals, and of course, more earnings, so you can continue doing what you love!
