PLEASE NOTE: We have had quite a few issues with iOS 9, so please be advised that Class Builder works best with iOS 8 and now iOS 10. If you have iOS 9, we highly recommend backing up your device (always a good practice) and upgrading to iOS 10. Class Builder WILL NOT run in iOS 11. We strongly recommend not upgrading to iOS 11 if you wish to continue using Class Builder. iClass Builder (see below) does operate in iOS 11 using the Class Builder Player app.
IF YOU HAVE UPGRADED TO iOS 11 and require tech support, please email us with this link:
Class Builder, while a native iPhone app, runs great on the iPad or iPad mini as well. It creates a way for Instructors of Indoor Cycling or Spinning® classes to use their iPod or iPhone for much more than just music. Everything from simple target intensity levels in RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) to advanced training with Heart Rate, Cadence and Power can be built into every class with Class Builder. Cue reminders that used to be written on scraps of paper or 3 X 5 cards are now shown on the iPod or iPad screen; allowing you to build your inspiration and motivation with the precise timing of each progression and music crescendo. The current cue is displayed to the instructor in bold, while the upcoming cue which has the seconds counting down to it's equally "perfect moment of delivery".
With its on-screen projector capability, Class Builder® delights the students almost as much as the instructors. Class Builder automatically generates a graphic ride profile; a graphical rendition of the ride that shows the changes in workout intensity, with a vertical “we are here” indicator that moves along perfectly synchronized to the music; showing where we are in the class at all times. The instructor can share this mountain-like profile on the front wall if they have an iPad or a fourth generation iPhone/iPod Touch or later, as well as an appropriate connector.
Class Builder® is also loaded with tons of extras like an on-demand interval timer, instant album and artist info at the tap of a finger, automatic Pre-Class music & slide show, and a help system that is rich with good cycling education. Our most current release also has VIDEO segments from Global Ride's virtual cycling library, of anything from 3 to 23 minutes to spice up your class. Photos are also able to be shown on top of the graphic if you so choose.
iClass Builder is coming!
Class Builder has been the industry standard for Spinning® and Indoor Cycling instructors since 2012.
However, to date Class Builder has just been available to iPhone and iPad users on the Apple iOS. In 2015 we began development of a web version to be used on all smartphones and tablets, providing Android users of all flavors the ability to use this amazing app. As of July of 2016, we are in beta on that version and should have a full release by the fall or winter of 2016/2017.
The video to the right is our first "tutorial" showing iClass Builder. While we are still in development this should give you an idea of what is coming. The tutorial is in two basic parts - the building of a class is here to the right and the playing of a class is Part 2.
