How do I create an instructor (PodPro) account on MyFitPod?

Creating a PodPro account on MyFitPod is easy and free to sign up!

At MyFitPod, we refer to service providers as PodPros, and we refer to your audience, the session participants, as Podders.

Before you can schedule your first session, you must complete three things:

  1. First you must create a PodPro account. That is what this lesson is about.
  2. You must also set up your Stripe account. You can find the article on how to do that here.
  3. And you must set up your Zoom account, if you don't already have one. You can learn how to do that here.

What You'll Need to Set Up Your PodPro Account

  • One of the following:
    • An email address and password
    • Your Facebook login credentials
    • Google account login credentials
  • A profile image (see details below)
  • The user alias you would like for Podders to see, if you choose not to use your given name.
  • A phone number that can be used for support as needed
  • Your zip code
  • Your date of birth
  • The default time zone in which your sessions will happen
  • Your area of expertise and associated certifications

    1. In this step, you will provide Podders with info about your areas of expertise, certification, and education.
    2. This information will be provided to Podders in two ways- on your MyFitPod website in the "About" section; and on the MyFitPod marketplace, where Podders will be able to filter specific search criteria related to PodPro expertise, certifications, and education

  7. Set up your payment details. MyFitPod partners with Stripe for secure payments and financial services through our MyFitPod APP. If you wish to conduct sessions or collect money for sessions you will need to set up your Payment Information and integrate your Stripe account.
    1. You may set up your payment information when you create your account, or you may skip this step and connect to Stripe at a later time.
