A Public Performance License (PPL) is a license that permits a facility (library, senior center, senior housing or retirement community) to play a Geri-Fit exercise DVD and be copyright / trademark compliant. It is different than a movie license which doesn't cover an individual company's copyright, trademark or other intellectual property (IP). Once a facility purchases a Geri-Fit public performance license, they are added to an approved list of licensed sites that are legally permitted to display the Geri-Fit DVD products in a public area.
How it works: The Public Performance License is a one-time fee of $150 and then you can purchase whichever DVD titles you want at their retail price (see available titles and prices below). The license is for one facility only and the DVD cannot be copied, shared, reused or taken elsewhere. If you have multiple facilities, each facility must purchase its own PPL. There is no annual renewal or other costs. This is a very cost-effective way for you to offer virtual fitness to your patrons, residents, members or community and is especially suitable for rural areas.
Here's a brief video of how your group will look exercising to a Geri-Fit DVD.
Although not required, it is suggested that you have a staff member or volunteer be present at the time the video is played to monitor the group and occasionally provide recommendations for improvement or exercise correction when needed.
We offer an optional Coach Trainer online training program that will teach your volunteer or staff member the proper coaching techniques that are needed to supervise your group of participants. This training does not permit the coach to teach a live class. However, it will provide them with the basic knowledge and guidance on what to spot and how to correct form while your group exercises to the DVD. This two hour online course is only available to sites that have purchased a PPL and is priced at $50 per trainer (limit 2 Coach Trainers per facility).
The videos accommodate all fitness levels and modifications of the exercises will be demonstrated so that everyone will be able to participate. Self-pacing is encouraged at all times. Participants bring their own weights and stretch band to class (usually in a tote bag that they keep in their car), so your facility does not have to purchase any equipment or store any equipment. If stretch bands are needed, we sell them individually or in sets of 10 or 20 at wholesale pricing. The only other requirement is sturdy chairs like banquet style or folding chairs, but without any arms. We recommend that the class size be kept at under 25 participants.
Once you purchase a PPL, you can begin to offer virtual fitness classes. Choose from these titles:
