Stages Studio Remote Control includes a countdown timer that gives instructors time to make announcements, describe what to expect during the workout, and have their music device ready to start when the plan begins. Instructors can choose from pre-set times ranging from 10 seconds to 5 minutes or start the class without a countdown. 

As the instructor, you will use this feature when you are already at the cycling studio, have logged into the remote control, and entered the studio to teach your class. The plan and video have been selected or already loaded by the scheduler.

To access the countdown timer:

  1. Click on START CLASS.
  2. The countdown timer options appear. Click on a pre-set time or START NOW to select it.
  3. The countdown time shows how much time before class automatically starts.
