Technology moves forward so quickly. Gone are the days of my awesome, giant, silver colored CD boom box that I rocked out with of most of the 90s. I've been connecting our WiFi network, our HiFi network, wireless SONOS stereo system, computers, networking printers, iPads, Spotify, robotic vacuums, even a wireless scale that analyzes your body composition (more on that in another post). It's amazing how much I can control from my smart phone phone.
As you enter the studio there is an iPad check in station for students to check in if they preregistered for class or to add yourself to the class if you are walking in. Just a click of a button and you're checked in! Very convenient both for student and instructor so the instructor. The instructor can spend more time and attention getting their students set up and ready for class, rather than doing paper work on the computer.
Our music is both wireless and limitless. Each of our studios are equipped with high quality SONOS HiFi stereo systems that communicate with both our computers and smartphones so instructors can play music either from their personal playlists, or utilize our Spotify account where they have access to millions of songs. There is music available that suits anyone's taste.
Our public WiFi network is now active and available for clients to utilize if they are waiting for a class or need WiFi for whatever reason. The network is called SOMA-Surfs and the password is posted in our studio. The password will be changed intermittently to keep our network efficient for our clients.
We would also like to welcome the two newest members of the SOMA Movement Team. Gizmo and Zoomba, our two iRobot Robotic vacuums who work tirelessly each night to keep our studio floors spick and span. Gizmo is a dark and handsome robot. Zoomba is a sleek, white robot.
We'll keep updating our studios with more technology to make our clients' and instructors' experiences more seamless and enjoyable.
