If I started my own barre streaming service....

What advice would you give me? Donít do it?

Seriously, I own my own small barre studio and have considered doing streaming workouts for quite some time; however, I have no idea where to start. Iím 53 so would that translate well to current market? Music (BIG issue)? I was looking at Vimeo like KCM and Linda from Barlates.

Any thoughts/advice are welcome. I have to admit to being tech challenged so I really do appreciate any input.

Though I don't subscribe to any streaming, let me encourage you. I just wanted to say I wish instructors would consider the setting a bit more. For example, Linda from Barlates came out with a "Traditional Barre Series". The rebounder in the background doesn't go with the theme, at least for me. Setting the stage is important. Good luck!!

Fatkat, why don't you test drive on Youtube? I support a few channels on Patreon and they release patron-only videos on Youtube. That's something you can consider. I don't know how Vimeo works but I'd be interested to see your videos. Patreon has different levels of support, i.e. tiered pricing to which additional services are offered to each tier. I just took a look and I see Pahla B has a Patreon page and there are a number of other fitness video instructors as well.

A lot of barre workouts miss the opportunity to market to the older crowd who doesn't workout. Or even to people who are going through health setbacks and/or recoveries.

My parents are in their 70's and I'd love to get them into some type of movement routine that will help them as they age. I have a standing barre that I don't currently use and was thinking that I could show them certain standing barre moves to get them moving.
