Due to customer requests, we have decided to offer lavalier microphones for wireless microphone systems. We always recommend headset microphones for fitness, but there has been a demand for lavalier microphones. There is an increase of instructors teaching streaming fitness classes, or pre-recording classes to air later, lavs will work in this type of application.
Due to COVID-19, some instructors are teaching with masks on and would prefer to clip a microphone to their shirt. We typically do not recommend lavs for group exercise. There is not a 'sweat rated' lavalier microphone. There are only lavalier microphones adapted to the fitness market. Also, lavalier microphones have a different pickup pattern than a standard microphone. In a group exercise room, they are subject to feedback. For more information about feedback you can read our article here: "Feedback. What It Is, What It Isn't".
Lavalier's are also known as a lav, lapel mic, clip mic, body mic, collar mic, neck mic, or personal mic.
We carry lavs for Shure, Sennheiser, Audio-Technica, Samson, Fitness Audio, and Galaxy. If you need help picking out the right product, please reach out to us, we would be happy to help!
