1. Wear clothing that doesn’t blend in with your surroundings.
Create contrast between your clothing and the background so it makes it easier for viewers to follow your movements.
2. Find a spot that has good even lighting and avoid direct sunlight or shadows.
Nothing makes a workout video hard to watch when there's harsh lighting or hardly any lighting. Make sure you're clearly visible with good even lighting.
3. Avoid recording shaky videos by using a tripod or placing your camera on a sturdy surface.
Don't make viewers dizzy by hand holding your camera or phone while recording. Even if you don't have a trip, prop it up so there's no camera shake.
4. Speak at a good volume and a reasonable pace.
Be clear, concise, and try not to ramble.
5. Plan out what you’ll be going over in the workout video.
