Social Media: Video Guidelines
Social media is such a great tool and a way to show your following what High Fitness is all about and we love being able to see your videos and get a glimpse into your class! We have noticed that since Instagram started allowing longer videos to be shared, the guidelines we have set as a company have been treated more lax. We wanted to quickly remind you of the rules and why they’re in place!
Length of video:
Keep your post UNDER 20 seconds – this is not only to protect our choreography but to protect your business. Due to music copyright laws, you are legally not supposed to use copyrighted material for longer than this amount of time and we don’t want anyone to find themselves in a legal situation.
Maximum of 2 moves – do not use more than 2 moves in a video you post, not only have you signed legal documents at your training, but you also want to protect the choreography you are paying for each month!
Choreography:
When you post videos, you want to make sure you and your participants are following the moves correctly and have proper form.  Please don’t post clips if your participants are not following along with the correct moves or look like they are going to get hurt doing the workout with bad technique
Quality:
When you post, it represents you as a teacher and the business as a whole – please make sure the quality reflects that!
We will be monitoring social media closer and will ask you to remove videos posted going forward that exceed 20 seconds/2moves.  We will also be honoring the rule from the Corporate/Guru team.
Video’s have a strong impact on your followers, they show your energy, atmosphere and how inspirational and fun HIGH is for everyone. We hope that these guidelines will clear up any questions you might have.

Have you ever heard a track you thought would make for a great HIGH song?
Or considered choreographing moves to a song then wanted to share your choreography with our team?


Choreography is the driving force of HIGH Fitness – each track, each move, each arm placement, each transition… they all come together through careful testing and consideration to create a HIGH Fitness library worthy track to be launched for instructors!

Instructors are more than welcome to submit song suggestions and/or choreography they’ve developed to our team for consideration.
There are some things to know in doing so however, so we’ve outlined the process and what to expect below:

1) Submissions can be made to choreography@highfitness.com. If you are submitting video, please upload and share the link (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.).

2) You will receive an automated reply letting you know that your email was received. This email is also sent to anyone completing their training so be sure to read carefully.

3) You will not receive a personal response or follow up to your submission. This is not personal and is not a reflection of your value to us as instructors. Relying on an automated email allows our team the time to thoroughly review all submissions

4) If your choreography is chosen, you will be notified before the song is launched.

5) If we use a song you suggested, you will not be notified. You will find out when the track is launched.

6) All choreography goes through a vigorous testing phase whether it was created by the owners, a guru, an instructor, etc. This means it is tested, changed, adjusted, tweaked and tested some more before it lands in the lineup of tracks to be launched. If you’re choreography is chosen, there is a very high likelihood that pieces of it will be different should it be launched.This is not to negate anyone’s skills, experience or creativity it is simply to properly align each song with the HIGH Fitness format and formula.

7) As per the instructor contract, ANY and ALL choreography submitted becomes the property of HIGH Fitness LP whether it is used or not. Please take note of this!


Please know that ALL submissions are viewed and screened by our choreography team. We acknowledge that a lot of work goes into creating/videoing/submitting, and it can be a huge step outside of someone’s comfort zone – we applaud that courage! Creating choreography is a very fluid process for us, and inspiration comes from many different places which means your choreography might not be chosen but ends up sparking inspiration for a song, a move, an artist, etc.

The choice to create and submit choreography is entirely up to you. We love that people are so excited about the format that they get inspired to contribute, and it is important to make sure going in that you understand what to expect from us! 

If you have any follow up questions or would like clarification, feel free to send us an email at info@highfitness.com.
